CSE's Residential Training on 'Planning and Designing for Co-treatment of Faecal Sludge/Septage at Sewage Treatment Plants' (18-20 October, 2023)

Background: Indian cities face a serious problem of inadequate collection and treatment of sewage and faecal sludge -- only about a third of urban India is served by networked services. Many large cities either have a sewerage system with a sewage treatment plant (STP), or plan to build one in the near future. But connecting every part of a city with a sewer network is a resource-intensive and impossible process – cities, therefore, will continue to have pockets that will depend on on-site sanitation systems. The septage/faecal sludge collected from these onsite systems requires treatment either at a stand-alone faecal sludge treatment plant (FSTP) or at an STP.

In India, sewage treatment plants are grossly underutilised. As per the Central Pollution Control Board’s 2021 inventory of STPs in India, 1,469 STPs are operational in the country, with a treatment capacity of 31,841 million litre per day (MLD): these plants are treating only 20,235 MLD. In such a scenario, co-treatment of faecal sludge and septage in STPs is a feasible and promising solution to the problem of urban sewage/septage management.

CSE - School of Water and Waste (SW&W)  is offering a tailor-made three-day residential training programme on ‘Planning and Designing for Co-treatment of Faecal Sludge at Sewage Treatment Plants’. The training would aim to help the participants:
  • understand the quantitative and qualitative data/information required for assessing the technical viability of co-treating faecal sludge at STPs
  • understand the technological challenges for co-treatment of faecal sludge/septage at different types of sewage treatment technologies
  • understand the operation and maintenance requirements along with financial implications for co-treatment
