India’s first sludge treatment plant

Urban Sanitation | May, 2018

India has around 7,000 towns with less than 1 million population and almost all of these towns do not have an efficient underground sewerage system connected to a sewage treatment plant. India’s first

Faecal Sludge Treatment Plant (FSTP) built in Devanahalli, Karnataka has a potential to change that. Build through a partnership of CDD Society and the Devanahalli Town Municipal Corporation, the plant efficiently converts the toilet waste of a town of 30,000 into compost for farmers.

Fully underground gravity based FSTP doesn’t require electricity and creates compost to boost agriculture. This model of FSTP can be a low cost and effective solution for India’s sewage treatment problems.
