PS Group: Finding solution to marble slurry menace of Udaipur

In a recent judgment passed by the Rajasthan High Court, Chief Justice Arun Mishra said: “There are 250 marble processing units in the Sukher industrial area and they are dumping about 70 tones of slurry daily as a result of which about 700×500 meters of the valley has been ruined.”


Marble slurry dumping yard

Marble slurry is either dumped by the road side or dumped at slurry dumping yard. In both cases the slurry is open to spread through wind, surface flow of water and also penetrate the ground.  This degrades the quality of air, surface water, ground water and damages the soil of nearby areas.

                     Marble slurry dumped by the roadsise.

Despite several attempts by various agencies to develop products and find commercial applications for marble slurry, the menace of slurry continues to haunt the beauty and environment of Udaipur.

                            Marble slurry dumped illegally in residential areas.

JK Tyre conducted a study to replace carbon black in tyres by marble slurry but it was not found suitable for dynamics applications in tyre. Several attempts to replace cement and sand in mortar and concrete by marble slurry have not been very successful commercially because reaction of compounds present in marble slurry with cement and water causes efflorescence in the products like bricks, paver blocks, kerb stones, roof tiles, tree guards.

Recently a team of final year students of Civil Engineering at Techno India NJR Institute of Technology started working of innovations to develop products using marble slurry. Lokesh Puri Goswami, Kundan Gorana, Mohit Wadhwani, Harshit Jaroli, Kamlesh Kumar, Sachin Goyal under the guidance of Dr. Pankaj Porwal have developed a technology and processing method that eliminates the use of water to make these products. The team has called the brick produced using slurry Slick (Slurry Brick). The salient feature the Slick and other products is that they use molten waste plastic from bottles as binder with sand and marble slurry as filler. They also use some advanced chemical admixtures to enhance the strength of fire resistance of the final product. Use of molten plastic not only solves the problem of efflorescence but also provides a practical solution to problem of disposal of waste plastic bottles.

Brick made using marble slurry, sand and waste plastic

Preliminary tests conducted on Slick give strength close to the compressive strength of second class bricks. This idea has found acceptance at national level also. Recently, the team leader, Lokesh Puri Goswami was awarded Silver Medal by National Design and Research Forum of Institution of Engineering.

The students have also developed a full-fledged business plan for this idea. They have presented this business plan at Stupreneurs and won first prize of 45000/-. Stupreneurs is state level impact and innovation challenge program to make Rajasthan a source of innovation and start ups to positively impact our economy. An ecosystem based approach where mentors, business leaders and other professionals support and mentor such start ups.

Currently the company formed by the students, PS Group, is being incubated at Lake City Incubation Center of Techno India NJR for commercialization of marble slurry and waste plastic bottle products.

US$6000 (Rs.4 lacs) Prize for Udaipur Students Project by Intel Corporation, USA

It was the time for students of Udaipur based engineering college Techno India NJR Institute of Technology to make a splash on international technology scene. World’s biggest chip maker Intel Corporation of USA organised a Hackathon with a challenge to   build innovative devices to improve human life. Thousands of entries were received for this challenge from all over the world.      

3 students of Techno NJR  Electronics and Communication branch  took this challenge and decided to create a device to improve quality of water in Udaipur lakes and wells. First step to improve is to measure  water quality . Traditional way to measure quality of water is to take sample of water from the lake and do the testing  in a laboratory  where you get results next day. And it  was not done regularly. Also data on quality of water remained with authorities and laboratories only.

techno india njr students

These students decided to create an Internet of Things (IoT)  device which could measure water quality continuously without taking water sample and also  share results  with everyone through an App so that so that every Udaipurite can contribute in improving quality of lake Water.

So this is what they did

They created a box and installed 4 sensors to measure following four parameters of Water quality “

  1. Temperature
  2. PH
  3. Turbidity
  4. Dissolved oxygen

They also installed a data logger to collect all readings of these sensors and also added a solar panel to supply power to the box. They connected  this system to IBM Bluemix cloud to store the data on quality of water sent  every half an hour  by the sensors. They also used IBM Watson to analyse this continuous data to create reports and graphs and created an App  called Lake Monitoring System ( available on Google Play Store ) through which anyone in the world can see quality of water in Udaipur lakes on live basis. 

This will help in authorities and Udaipur lake lovers in improving the quality of water by taking suitable measures. If Ph is increasing it will imply that some water from sewage is coming in lakes. Dissolved oxygen level indicates suitability of this water for fishes and fauna in the lake. If dissolved oxygen level is low it can be improved by installing aerators. 

For this highly valuable project  students Ritwik Dave, Roshni Mehta and Himmat Khatik won second prize of US$ 5000 and Best Student project of US$ 1000 in Intel Hacks 2017 for their entry – Smart Well Monitoring System . This system has been installed by the students at Fatehsagar lake in Udaipur . 

As a highly gracious and commendable gesture, students have offered to use Prize money of Rs.4 lacs to make 6 more systems like these and install them in other six lakes of Udaipur so that Government authorities and general public can see water quality of all 7 lakes through one App on their mobile. Computer Science students Ritwik Joshi and Vansh Soni designed the dashboard and the App based on IBM Bluemix and IBM Watson platform. You can see the system at:

Project was mentored by  Prof. Pradeep C. & Dr. Jonathan Joshi  on IoT side and Aaditya Maheshwari on Cloud and Analytics .

UdaipurBlog congratulates these students for this useful device which will help Udaipur keep it’s lakes pristine and clean.
