06 Apr 2022

While the concept of wastewater treatment and the need to include it in all water supply and wastewater management programs is recognized by most policy frameworks and institutions, the aspect of supplying the treated water to potential users is the way forward. There is a need for proper monitoring and management system in order to provide treated water to potential users. The potential resource also presents opportunities to recover nutrients and energy from wastewater. The recovery of phosphorus and potassium is particularly attractive as India imports most of its phosphorus and all of its potassium needs to meet demand.
