Looking for Technical Guidance to Set up FSTP plants in North East Part of India.

We are currently working with different ULB’s in Assam, India to provide solutions for Solid and Liquid Waste. As part of Liquid Waste solutions, we have set up the a FSTP plant in Titabor, Assam ( A small town in Jorhat District . It's the 1st FSTP Plant in Assam State. 
We have plans to set up more FSTP plants across the Northeast part of India. We are currently using MBBR Technology. We would like to explore more alternative solutions to suit the North East Region. We are looking for any expert opinion and suggestions in this regard. Thanks in Advance!

Re: Looking for Technical Guidance to Set up FSTP plants in North East Part of India.

Dear Mr Javed
Congratulations for implementing the 1st FSTP in North East of India. For providing any guidance you may like to inform:
i. Capacity of the FSTP ( cum Per day treatment)
ii. your present cost ( CAPEX) and operational cost ( OPEX) per month/ year  of the FSTP you implemented.
iii. Present quality of effluent after treatment and intended quality in terms of BOD, COD, Nitrogen and coliform count.
iv.  Is there system of reuse of treated effluent or it will be safely disposed. If so, where- in nearby river or any water body. If so kindly mention.  
There are technologies being implemented in India. Selection of technology depends on the above basic information. Pl. provide.

Hi Javed, 

I presume you have already read the Faecal Sludge Management book:

I am quite familiar with it, as I translated it into Spanish:

I consider the Planted Drying Bed to be one of the most practical and environmentally friendly options. I also think we can potentially be more creative about the plants that we plant in them. If we are worried about pharmaceuticals and other chemicals (incl. heavy metals) in the FS that possibly could get back into our food chain via forage for animals, plants that are used to weave mats, baskets, or furniture could be planted instead, including maybe different species of bamboo.

The Vermifilter  ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vermifilter ) is another very efficient, up-and-coming technology that has been implemented successfully in many parts of the world, including India. (I have not built any yet, but I want to.) This can be combined with the Planted Drying Bed, if compost worms are added to such a bed, as demonstrated in one presentation in this conference of the Innoqua Project:

The final effluent may best be re-utilized via Subsurface Irrigation using perforated hoses or drip lines among fruit tree plantations, stands of large bamboo for use in construction, or native reforestation areas.

I hope this information is useful to you and I would be glad to review your plans and advances, if you like.

Best wishes,
