From recycling 1 million litres in 2022 to 100 million in 2025

Founder and managing director of EP Biocomposites Limited (EPBL), Rajkumar Kamat talks about his ideations, current plans and future direction for his company

From their first 12 ft VOC (volatile organic compounds) environmentfriendly powder coating plant in 1991 to  creating a variety of cost-effective, green tech products and services, EP Biocomposites Limited has diversified and  grown keeping the environment in mind. They manufacture products such as fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) doors,  bio-digester tanks, fire retardant doors, passive fire protection products and more.

EPBL’s focus was always  FRP  long with bio-digester tanks with DRDO (Defense Research and Development Organisation) certified technology which was introduced into the market through OM Ventures. In 2019, through ‘Vibrant Goa’ during a visit to the US and Canada, the company captured the idea of FRP doors. Their aim with their bio-digesters is to develop standardised products for specific sectors such as beach shacks, villas, restaurants, etc. After taking over OM Ventures, EPBL added sewage and effluent treatment plant vertical to their collection by creating a team with more than 25 years of experience within the sector.

With more than 2500 biotoilets installed in individual households in Goa, their toilets are cost-effective, environmentally friendly, and maintenance-free with their only byproduct being odorless bio-gas and water for gardening. Their products help eliminate groundwater contamination and are present with big brands in  the Goan hospitality sector, industry, and construction companies. EPBL offer customised combinations of technologies to work towards a zero liquid discharge (ZLD), while also offering standardaffordable containerised  sewage treatment plant (STP) solutions for small volumes.


While staying alert for the latest technologies in the water sector they took on the Swedish sustainable technology  leaders, Wayout International, and their ‘pure water without plastic bottles’ initiative. This water purification and dispensary system reduce the use of plastic bottles, reducing the overall carbon footprint. Just one Wayout System  provides  clean and safe drinking water to almost 2000 people with no by-products. This system prevents up to 483  tons of greenhouse gases and  5.7 million single-use plastic bottles from being created annually. “The next-gen technology can run entirely on solar energy and stores data on water purify in an inbuilt digital chip which forms in  communicating information on consumption and quality to the users”, says Rajkumar Kamat. In 2020, the  roup  offered sewage treatment and effluent treatment plants as a highly advanced solution to recycling domestic as  well as industrial wastewater, “As water conservation has become increasingly important, sewage and effluent treatment plants are the solution to this. They recycle water to a safer level for reuse or safer discharge into the environment”, says Kamat. Since then, there has been a 300% growth achieved by the EP Kamat Group in the span of 3 years, despite the pandemic.

In an attempt to go for an SME IPO (Small and Medium Enterprise Initial Public Offering), EPBL’s initiative will be the first SME IPO from Goa with an issue size of more than Rupees 5 crores. Kamat believes that the success of the public issue is not solely based on the issue subscription but also on the continuous and positive performance of the company. “Narayan Murthy of Infosys highlighted the importance of PSPD. 1. Predictability of revenue, 2. Sustainability of business, 3. Profitability through cost control and 4. De-risking by not being dependent on one product, market, or customer. We believe EPBL is well poised on all those fronts to ensure sustained value to investors”, says Kamat.

When asked about the future of the company Kamat says, “Our major initiatives include development of cost-effective bio sewage treatment plants for beach shacks, small restaurants, and hotels.” Expanding on their Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP)doors to Maharashtra and Karnataka in their first phase followed by North America in their second phase is also a part of their plan, along with this they are also looking into developing sewage treatment plant automation and containerised cost-effective STP systems for real estate and other sectors within Goa.
As of today, the EP Kamat Group recycles 1 million litres of wastewater every day and their goal is to recycle 100 million litres of wastewater by 2025
