Webinar 5: Treating Faecal Sludge in India

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) conducted a webinar and online release of its new analysis and report on the performance of India's faecal sludge treatment plants (FSTPs). Eleven FSTPs and one co-treatment facility have been covered in the analysis.

These plants use different technologies and are located in different parts of the country. CSE's Environment Monitoring Laboratory has collected samples from the plants – both to test inlet and outlet and also to check on the performance of their different components.

Today, in the age of the coronavirus, reinventing the paradigm of sewage management, so that it is both affordable and sustainable, becomes even more critical. While hand-washing is the key to stop the spread of the virus, we know that large numbers of people in India and the world, do not have access to clean water. This report and its assessment offers to begin building a new knowledge base of what works in our quest for effective and sustainable sanitation, and what does not and why.
