NTPC, India’s largest power generating company, is fully aligned for conserving water for sustainable ecological balance.  NETRA (NTPC Energy Technology Research Alliance) proposed Effluent Recycling Treatment plant to achieve zero liquid discharge at NTPC’s Jhanor – Gandhar station to optimize water costs and minimize environmental footprint.

 

The recycled and reuse of treated effluents is profitable in the ever deteriorating environment of water scarcity. At present, only one stream of the station has been successfully commissioned and the next stream will be commissioned by 7th Sep’18. At full load operation, NTPC Jhanor – Gandhar (657.39 MW) generates effluent of 4500 M3 per day.  The new recycling treatment has integrated high rate solid contact clarification, submerged Ultra filtration and RO modules technologies to give 125 M3/Hr high quality water. The produced water will be used for Demineral (DM) water production or directly in Cooling Water (CW) make-up in the power station.

 

As a part of its corporate ethos, NTPC aims at utilization of industrial waste water to ensure a sustainable ecological balance by minimizing waste and reusing the waste water at its power stations. With new technologies, the plant will have the added advantage of increased resin life, lesser chemical consumption and improved COC in CW system. The new technology system suits the wide variety of industrial effluents and maintains the efficiency of plants. Read more

Hepatocellular carcinoma or HCC is a Primary Liver Cancer (which means it originates in liver and is not because of cancer spread) and is the sixth commonest cancer and the third largest cause of cancer deaths in the world. Treatment of this lethal disease has always been painful, expensive and time consuming. Now with evolving of much safer and targeted intra-arterial treatment called Drug Eluting Bead Chemo Embolisation, also known as DEB-TACE, more and more patients are opting for this revolutionary method.

Trysacryl speheres and Hydrogel spheres made from polyvinyl alcohol are the two types of Drug Eluting Beads available and essentially both work on the same principle. The beads are like “Sago” (Sabudana) seeds that absorb chemotherapy drug called doxorubicin and are released directly in the blood stream into the blood circulation that goes inside the primary liver cancer tumor. They get distributed in capillaries in the entire tumor thus the blood flow to this circulation is blocked by these spheres and they stay inside the tumor and release a very high concentration of chemotherapy drug that kills the tumor cells.

Speaking about this treatment, Dr. Sandip Jhala, Interventional Specialist, Apollo Hospitals-Ahmedabad said “The reason why drug eluting bead chemo-embolisation is fast becoming the most acceptable line of treatment is because these beads have been shown in several studies to effectively destroy the tumor and very little drug goes into circulating blood stream.

People from Patiala and nearby regions flocked to a free screening camp organized by Columbia Asia Hospital in high numbers on 8th and 9th of this month for medical consultation, diagnosis, and treatment of neurological disorders.

The camp was organized not only to treat patients but also to spread awareness and educate people about these disorders.

Doctors provided free medical consultation from morning 9 AM to 1:30 AM on over 15 neurological disorders, including stroke, brain hemorrhage, epilepsy, migraine, vertigo, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, neurotoxic diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, and many others

“People have come in good numbers. Doctors have provided free consultation to 105people in the past two days. Neurological disorders are associated with social stigma and it is difficult for people to come out in open and go for medical consultation. Therefore, it felt all the more good to see people coming out of their closets and discuss their problems” said Dr. Satwant Sachdeva, Consultant Neurologist, Columbia Asia Hospital, Patiala.

Around 3 crore people in India suffer from neurological disorders, with an approximate prevalence of 2400 people per lakh population. Although there seems to be lack of data on a number of neurological disorders in Patiala, but an independent study published in 2015 for epilepsy, reported prevalence of over 7 persons per 1000 people,  while it showed a crude incidence rate of around 60 per  lakh population. In the given scenario, people need to be more aware of various neurological disorders prevalent so that they can go for the proper treatment and help those who are suffering from these diseases.
