Many industrial units in India treat their waste in Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP). They avoid having an on-site wastewater treatment facility due to high capital and operating costs. Many industries don’t have access to the water body even through the pipelines; hence they rely on municipal wastewater treatment plants to recycle the effluent.
The growth of the aquaculture industry has been increasing over the past few decades to overcome environmental damage and low productivity. The need for increased disease resistance and the development of aquatic organisms has brought about using probiotics in the aquaculture industry.
Typically a wastewater treatment plant undergoes three significant processes: Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary, out of which the biological treatment phase falls under the secondary stage. The biological treatment phase is mainly of two types: Aerobic Treatment and Anaerobic Treatment.
Looking at the side effects of pesticides, how can farmers protect their crops from unwanted pests and weeds?
Cotton farmers can take a holistic approach to crop protection by looking for sustainable options that are better for farm workers, the farming community, and the environment.
Composting is one of the most efficient ways to send nutrients back into the soil while reducing the amount of garbage in landfills. It may seem trivial, but it’s an imperative way to conserve natural resources, improve public health and save money. Currently, more than 55% of organic matter is sent to landfills, of which 20–30% could easily be composted. Making compost prevents non-recyclable paper, food scraps, and other organic waste from accumulating in landfills and emitting toxic greenhouse gases like methane.
Sustainability is an increasingly important issue for people, especially in the business world. Climate change continues to affect humans and the fate of species around the planet. As individuals, we are doing our part in protecting the environment; however, adopting sustainable business practices has become imperative for business owners, leaders, and administrators.
The importance of gut health in aquaculture is recognized widely. Fish’s digestive systems are the direct outcome of the stable, desirable gut bacteria. The optimum gut microflora impacts feed efficiency, performance, and overall productivity.
Sludge management reduces health problems and related risks. Our technology for sludge management is sustainable with no environmental side effects.
With the rise in urbanization and growing population, it is challenging to manage the overburden of overcrowded cities, and extensive air and water pollution while meeting the overgrowing demands for food, clothing, and shelter using tremendous resources for everyone. We must strive to take care of the environment during such times by opting for sustainable practices.
Gardening is more than just planting plants. As a gardener, you must regularly check on your plants, nourish them, water them and provide adequate support. Despite taking care of the plants, sometimes they stop blooming, stunting their growth. During such times, gardeners provide a dose of nutrients in the form of fertilizers or organic growth promoters. While manually giving nutrition to the plant, the gardeners must ensure excess manure is not provided as it can start deteriorating the plant’s health
