What Happens To Sewage In Developing Countries

Untreated sewage is one of the major 21st-century challenges faced by the world today. Several factors such as population growth, rapid urbanization, industrialization and lack of innovative sewage water treatment solutions have led to an increase in sewage volume globally.

An extensive amount of sewage water is generated every day from households, industries and agriculture. Raw sewage contains harmful components such as chemicals, dangerous pathogens, toxin substances, debris and heavy metals. Therefore, when the sewage is released into the environment without proper sewage water treatment, it causes water pollution. Consequently, it threatens to impact human health and the environment

MLSS bacteria and ways to evaluate it

Wastewater treatment plants are used across the world to treat the extensive amount of wastewater generated every day. The main aim is to protect the public from health hazards caused due to untreated wastewater. Moreover, wastewater treatment is essential to prevent environmental pollution. Biological wastewater treatment is the most important process at any treatment facility where living microorganisms play a vital role in degrading organic waste. Among the various components of the system, MLSS is an operational control parameter that needs to be optimized for best treatment results.

Anaerobic Treatment of Wastewater for Production of Biogas

The anaerobic treatment of waste consists of primarily four stages where different microorganisms act in an oxygen-free environment and produce methane-CH4.

A Peek into the History of Wastewater Treatment

The process mainly contained three stages namely: Primary treatment, Secondary Treatment, and Tertiary Treatment. In the primary treatment, large objects, solids are screened using filters and removed. In the secondary treatment, more solid particles and organic matter present in the wastewater is removed using biological treatment. In the tertiary process, disinfection or chlorination takes place to make the effluent good enough to be released or reused.

Our Oceans – Every Drop Counts

Our clients also have a meat processing [...]

The Environmental Impact Of Untreated Waste (Or Why Do We Have To Swim To Work During The Rains)

Untreated waste is not just a critical threat to public health, it is also a major threat to the environment. Toxic waste contaminates our air, soil and water, creating a cycle of harm breaking which will need all of us to make lifestyle changes at an individual level too.

Why Is It Important To Treat Waste On-Site

Solid waste management is fast becoming an urban crisis in cities all across India. Managing this will require individuals to also support civic bodies and be conscious of the waste they generate. An ideal start would be waste segregation and for all housing societies to start composting organic waste.

Septic Tanks 101: Everything You Ever Wanted Or Didn’t Want To Know

Where Does Sewage Go?

It is crucial to examine what goes into our waste water, and know and understand where it goes once it leaves our home. It is time to start examining what we put in our cleaning products and how toxic the waste water we create is. Because the health of our waterways, oceans and all the living beings depends on it.

Blue Dogs In Taloja : Offshoot Of Industrial Waste

Locals spotted several blue dogs in the Taloja industrial area. The dismal story of the pollution of the Kasadi river by industries in the area is the causal heart rending eye-opener. The life of animals, both aquatic and terrestrial is under high risk. The once lively river is now full of untreated harmful waste that has depleted the aquatic life of the river. The number of crabs and fish has drastically fallen down. The major contributors to the raging pollution levels are the dye and chemical industries that are in the proximity of the water body. This is a clear impact of effluents from industries affecting innocent and helpless animals. Social workers and activists striving to save the river since a decade hold the irresponsible behaviour of the industries and the neglect shown by the waste water treatment body as the major cause, and rightly so.

Higher Life Forms and Their Role in Wastewater Treatment

The general awareness regarding microbes has greatly increased over the past few decades. However, little is known about their distant cousins, ‘Protozoans and Metazoans’, more popularly known as ‘higher life forms’. Both these categories of organisms are of great value to industrial effluent treatment. Microorganisms constitute 95% of population in an ideal activated sludge ,of which 4 % of this microbial population consist of higher life forms. Although these higher life forms contribute very little to the removal of organic nutrients, their presence however greatly enhances the clarity of the water and provides an indication of effluent condition (Eg. Toxicity,organic load, dissolved oxygen etc.).

Aswachh Mumbai – The Problem Of Poor Waste Management

Mumbai is the city of glitz and glamor; of highrises and plush hotels and housing complexes, of bars and exotic restaurants, of soaring real estate values, of gilded star homes at Bandra and Juhu, of swanky cars and malls and international brands etc. But underneath all that jazz, Mumbai grapples with a giant problem- waste management. The city’s faring poorly when it comes to handling proper, hygienic disposal of human and kitchen refuse. Any number of factors might be responsible for this.

Tackling Ammonia In Effluents

In recent times, due to the limited availability of water resources and rapid industrialization, it is mandatory to preserve water quality. Ammonia is one of the most common pollutant observed in industrial and agricultural effluents. It is used as a bleaching agent in chemical industries and also in production of fertilizers, plastics and explosives. In effluents ammonia exists in equilibrium with ammonium ions. The concentration of ammonia gas increases with increase in pH and temperature. At neutral pH most of the ammonia exists as dissolved ammonium ions, but as the pH increases to 12, both ammonium ions and gaseous ammonia coexist in the effluent. The estimation of Ammonia in effluents is generally carried out by Nessler’s method and is determined as Ammonical Nitrogen (NH3-N) in ppm.
