Sludge management reduces health problems and related risks. Our technology for sludge management is sustainable with no environmental side effects.
Did you know? The food services industry generates close to 4 billion pounds of inedible grease waste each year. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), every restaurant in the US alone generates grease waste ranging from 8,000 to 17,000 pounds. In the absence of a commercial grease trap, most of this waste ends up being discarded directly into the sewage system, or worse, local water bodies.
A septic tank system is like a small-scale wastewater treatment plant that handles household solid and liquid waste flushed down the toilet and washroom. Bacteria play the all-important function of degrading organic solid waste in the tank. Thus, the right balance of healthy bacteria is essential for maximum system efficiency.
However, extensive use of various household chemicals disturbs the microbe ecosystem, leading to sludge-build up. Moreover, you run the risk of septic tank malfunction and associated issues such as solid waste accumulation, clogged pipes, bad odour and even groundwater contamination. It is, therefore, necessary to increase and maintain the safe and good bacterial population in the septic system. Adding bacteria to the septic tank can help achieve this objective.
Millions of people in India do not have sanitation infrastructure or toilet facilities due to low income and water scarcity issues. This leads to open defecation practices which eventually causes public health hazards, water contamination and environmental pollution. In rural and urban areas with sanitation facilities, poor faecal management, disposal mechanism and lack of connectivity to waste treatment plants are major concerns. Portable toilets, also know as bio-toilets can help in overcoming this challenge in India.
A vast quantity of wastewater is generated every day from households, commercial establishments, and industrial settings. Treating organic waste present in the sewage can be challenging as physical and chemical mediums are not quite effective. Thus, biological sewage water treatment processes are generally used to meet effluent standards set.
However, due to the ever-increasing population, urbanization and industrialization, the performance of treatment plants are affected. Moreover, there are stringent local and national regulations to release the effluent into the environment and to protect public health. MBBR technology is an advanced wastewater technology that can be used to optimize the sewage treatment plants and boost their efficiency while keeping the costs low.
The French are believed to be the first to use septic tank systems in the 1870s, followed by the United States. Over a century later, septic tanks are still used worldwide at homes without access to sewage treatment plants.
A septic tank, made of concrete, plastic or fibreglass, is installed beneath the ground and performs the function of breaking down waste generated from the household. A malfunctioning system can cause a wide range of problems such as surface water pollution, disease outbreaks and environmental concerns. Therefore, your septic tank system needs regular maintenance and care to work at its best and break down organic waste efficiently.
For a country like India which is looking to revolutionise its sewage wastewater management systems the gaps in the functionality of current treatment systems are very high. The CPCB’s 2015 census report states that out of India’s 816 STP’s , only about 522 are fully operational and do not meet their entire capacity of treating sewage.
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
An unpleasant odour is one of the most common restroom complaints at commercial spaces like restaurants, cafes, hotels and offices. More the people use the restroom, the more odour issues arise. A clean bathroom is necessary for good health and hygiene, and regular cleaning can help keep the restroom clean. However, it wouldn’t be enough to eliminate the bad odour in the restroom.
Different obnoxious odours can be found in different areas of the restroom, so locating the source is critical to eliminating them. To get rid of the odour, you may need to use a combination of solutions. The good news is that you can permanently eliminate and prevent commercial restroom odours by using organic cleaning products and toilet odour eliminators.
Globally, billions of people do not have access to basic sanitation facilities even today, and it is affecting the health, economy, environment and communities in different ways. In developing countries of the world, the poor sanitation situation leads to public health hazards like diarrhoea, cholera and dysentery resulting in deaths, especially of children, every year. It costs billions and affects economic growth. The open defecation practices pollute the environment and aesthetic beauty of the place.
