Mr Riad and Mr Irfan visited the Netherlands to get fluent on the Cap DI technique

We welcomed our project implementors from DAM last week. Both engineers had a training at the Voltea premises to 'get fluent with the innovative Cap DI technique'. We also organized a partner day and  co created a new name 'Sujol' meaning good water in Bengali.


Of course we encountered several technical challenges, like pretreatment of AS 3+ to AS5+. But we also created a lot of solutions. Sujol project is an enterprise itself, it will bring good water to millions of Bangladeshi using Dutch innovations.
