Wastewater originates from mainly two sources: households and industries. An extensive amount of domestic waste and waste from manufacturing processes are generated every day, which contains chemicals, toxic substances, biodegradable materials or organic waste and much more. Other sources include agricultural activities, rain runoff and animal wastes.
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.
Municipal waste treatment plants around the world are under severe strain with increasing migration of people toward urban areas. And while there have been engineering advancements in design and processes of sewage treatment plants, development of bacterial treatment systems for effective sewage secondary treatment has not been accorded equal importance. But like our client in Gödöllő discovered, we have a natural solution for every wastewater treatment woe.
Yes, millions of tonnes of plastic waste is choking our seas and polluting our waters. But equally dire is the litres upon litres of wastewater entering our oceans and contaminating all the water in a cyclical, multigenerational chain of damage. Damage that can begin to be reversed using solutions harnessed from nature herself.
