Management of human waste in India has traditionally been inefficient to say the least and with an increasing population it has become a further problem. It has given rise to the practice of manual scavenging, the dehumanizing method in which people have to empty sludge from septic tanks whilst immersing in it. Though there is […]
The lack of hygiene in our society means that we are living in a dangerous situation. Globally, 80% of mismanaged sewage water flows back into the ecosystem without being treated properly, contributing to a situation where more than 1.8 billion people’s source of drinking water is contaminated with faeces, putting them at risk of contracting
Open defecation is a rampant problem, especially in rural India, causing an alarming situation which creates health hazards, raises environmental concerns and leads to water contamination. According to research, more than half of our countries population still practices open defecation. Whereas, many people practicing it have access to a toilet but they avoid using it
Human Waste Management is an ever growing problem leading to nuisance, threat of organic pollution and several diseases. Bio-Digester technology has been developed by Defence Research Development Organisation (DRDO) for resolving this problem. The innovation degrades and converts the human waste into usable water and gases causing no harm to the environment.
Bio-Digester is the best alternative to a conventional septic tank, since it offers a better level of treatment, with loads of added benefits.
Let’s talk about human waste for a second. It’s easy to flush the waste in the toilets and not consider what happens next. Typically, our sewer system sends waste down the drain and it’s discharged into marine environment, thereby polluting our waterbodies. However, the way we manage our waste can be changed by opting for
The development of Bio-Digester technology has been a major advancement in the sanitation sector and will definitely see a major progress in the years to come. Experts from this field have revealed that, the Bio-Digester consists of a Bio-Toilet attached with Bio-Digester tanks that converts human faeces into biogas and reusable water. This technology uses
