The workshop in Varanasi led to the launch of a Call for Proposals for a pilot demonstration.

The pilot demonstration for the rejuvenation of River Ganga will establish cost-effective and space-efficient solutions that can be implemented on a larger scale. This living laboratory is a collaboration that will demonstrate international research and solutions to effectively clean large water systems, particularly in Canada and India.
