Essential Oils Used In Cleaning Products & Its Anti-Viral And Anti-Bacterial Properties

Approximately 38,300 million litres of sewage is generated daily in the major cities of India as per a recent report from the UN water activity information system. The number is staggering, isn’t it? If you are thinking from where does such a huge amount of wastewater generate? There are majorly two sources – Industrial waste and Domestic sewage. As both the population of India and Industrial Landscapes is increasing at a phenomenal speed, wastewater volume has also seen an alarming rise.

There is a continuously increasing demand for food from the planet’s growing population. This has put a pressure on farmers worldwide to increase their yields. This is particularly difficult since around 20-30% of the yields are lost to the onslaught of pathogens, insects and weeds. The toll increases when we take climate change into consideration as well.

All kinds of home and kitchen waste, solid and liquid waste reach the septic tank. It is more like a local small scale sewage treatment plant where waste is treated and, wastewater is flown through the pipes into the soil.
In an ideal scenario, the waste is treated naturally with the help of microbes and is eliminated. But with increasing usage of household chemicals and population density in the urban areas, septic tanks are found to face a plethora of issues which are a direct consequence of improper usage and maintenance of the septic tank.
