Title of Technology 

Bioprocess for treating perchlorate (rocket fuel) contaminated water and soil

Executive Summary

Perchlorate (rocket fuel) is an emerging endocrine disrupting contaminant. CSIR-NIIST has developed a microbial process for decontaminating perchlorate in discharges and soil (ex-situ remediation). The process is tested and validated up to pilot scale.

Potential Market
Mainly for space R&D units (ISRO, VSSC), and industries handling perchlorate in bulk.

Technology Readiness Level – 7
