Is Wastewater Treatment sustainable?

Insufficient water supply is among one of the biggest threats that face people today. In Australia and other parts of the world, there is a constant water shortage. Water has become one of the millennium goals for the future, new technologies are being developed to cushion the effects of water scarcity. Some of the programs initiated by local governments, include desalination, water location transfers, rainwater harvesting and wastewater treatment.

Wastewater treatment is the step-by-step process of removing damaging contaminants from water for the purpose of making it safe for other uses. Wastewater treatment plants need to adapt, to the increase in demand for energy and water, prolonged droughts, climate change and resources scarcity, while managing the nutrients properly. These are all critical to the success of wastewater treatment plants sustainability.

Eco-Septic has more than 30 years’ experience, in the field of wastewater treatment solutions and we pride ourselves in the value for money and reliability, of all our products and services. Over the years, we have become experts on the design, manufacture and supply of reliable equipment, for treatment of domestic and commercial wastewater.

Our wastewater treatment is sustainable because we achieve environmental sustainability in the following ways:

Wastewater Treatment

1. Waste Reduction

When wastewater undergoes a treatment process, it significantly cuts down the volume of waste that is discharged to the environment. This reduces pollution, which in turn also reduces health hazards, resulting from contaminated environment.

2. Energy Production

Wastewater treatment processes uses microorganism that break down organic matter that produces biomass. This happens at the second or sludge phase, where biogas is produced. Methane, which is a big part of biogas, is used to generate energy that can supply power to the wastewater treatment plant.

3. Source of Clean Water

Wastewater treatment can make sure that there will be a sufficient supply of water for everyone. By filtering harmful contaminants from the wastewater, the governments will be able to give out safe and hygienic water to all.

4. Fertilizer Production

During the sludge phase, the wastewater is purified by separating the liquid, from the insoluble particles that become the biomass. This biomass is converted into organic fertiliser, which is an ideal alternative to chemical fertiliser.

5. Disease Prevention

You may contract parasitic infection, when you consume water that is contaminated with potentially harmful and dangerous bacteria. These infections can affect people of all ages and the severity can range from mild, to severe to critical. The infection may affect your skin, body, blood, organs etc. However, wastewater treatment will keep you safe from these diseases.

It is very clear that for environmental conservation and sustainability, wastewater treatment systems are very important.
