Daiki Axis Japan to infuse fresh investments to expand presence in south India

Daiki Axis Japan will make new investments to expand its presence in southern India, a company official said.

In November, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar inaugurated the second unit of the Indian company in Palwal, which was set up with an investment. 200 million to produce water treatment plants. One unit is already operational at Vapi in Gujarat.

The company plans to set up its next factory in Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka or Tamil Nadu.

“Our next plan is to set up a factory in Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka or Tamil Nadu,” Daiki Axis India CEO Kamal Tiwari said.

“Meetings have already been held with all these states. As soon as we start receiving approvals, we will immediately begin construction work by 2023 to meet our request,” he added.

The company’s long-term plan is to set up a manufacturing unit in each state of India, he said.

The Vapi and Palwal plants have an average annual production capacity of around 1,000 sewage treatment units, each using Japanese ‘Johkasou’ technology used for on-site treatment and reuse of domestic wastewater.

Every project in south India will be on Palwal’s lines in terms of investment and capacity, the CEO said.

India and Japan have also signed a memorandum of cooperation (MoC) for wastewater management through Johkasou technology.

Explaining the technology, he said his system is governed by Japan’s Johkasou Law, which specifies technical standards for manufacturing, installation and operation and maintenance.

The law also establishes a qualification system for Johkasou-related technicians.

In short, Johkasou is about local treatment and reuse of domestic wastewater, which is very suitable for India in the current situation, Tiwari said.

Speaking about the importance of wastewater treatment, the industry expert said, “It is worrying that 600 million people in India face severe or extreme water stress. About 3/4 of the households in the country do not have drinking water on their premises. With almost 70 percent of the water being contaminated, India 120 . in the Water Quality Index out of 122 countries.”
