Bangalore University’s Department of Environmental Science has claimed that it has developed a “green” method to clean up nearly 90 per cent of all pollutants in the City’s lakes.

Scientists at the department explained that their project, titled the ‘Green and eco-friendly technology for treating waste water entering into wet lands of urban Bangalore,’ aims at resuscitating all polluted lakes and water bodies in the City. They added that their system was superior to the existing method used by the government, which boasts of only 50 per cent efficiency.
