Our STPs reduce lifetime costs and occupy only one-fifth of the space of any conventional system


What’s the action plan that provided the company with an intact reputation with such an elevated level of quality?
It’s no rocket science. Constantly upgrading to the latest technologies and trends in achieving environmental sustainability is the theme of our action plan. Our team’s passion takes a huge amount of credit in terms of executing this strategy. They constantly update themselves and strive for excellence. Moreover, we are an ISO 9001, ISO 14001, & OHSAS 18001 certified organization with a NABL accredited laboratories (ISO 17025 certified). Strictly adhering to world class practices along with a bunch of state-of-the-art laboratories & disposal facilities, we have set the right platform for us to excel in environmental and waste management.

How has been the journey so far, and what’s the response from the market?
It has been an overwhelming journey. Ever since we kickstarted our operations based out of Nagpur, we have been riding along a steady growth track. We have made consistent progress to become one of India’s leading players in the infrastructure development and environment management sectors. Currently, we are spread across the subcontinent with presence in 23 cities across nine states and union territories. There has been a rising demand in the international market as well. We have initiated our international presence in Biomedical Waste Management by starting a Common Biomedical Waste Treatment and Disposal Facility (CBWTF) in Uganda.

Effective Sewage Treatment has been an area of serious concern in a populous country like India and SMSEL’s solutions over the years have been quite effective. What’s the vision that your products are built around?
We envision our products to reduce costs and space occupancy while improving the performance. Our Sewage Treatment Plants (STP)
reduce lifetime costs and occupy only one fifth of the space of any conventional system. In addition, we also provide our clients with systems that can be installed in basements or on the terrace, and with an option to recycle, completely automate and connect to the municipal lines. These factors come together to make us one of the leading manufacturers of STP. We offer both customized and ready made sewage treatment plants for municipal corporations, housing societies, commercial complexes, SEZs, hotels and hospitals.

In terms of driving towards cleaner energy and environment, what’s the company’s future plan?
Clean energy is an area of paramount importance. Through SMS Vidhyut Pvt. Ltd., we have been awarded a project on the left bank canal & the right bank canal on the canal based power generation at Pench Dam, Kamptee Khairi, Nagpur. The total power generation at the right bank canal will be 2x700 KW and left bank canal will be 2x2200 KW.
