Soil Bio- technology is a terrestrial system for wastewater treatment which is based on the principle of trickling filter. In this system, combination of physical processes like sedimentation, infiltration and biochemical processes are carried out to remove the suspended solids, organic and inorganic contents of the wastewater.
|Suitable mineral constitution, culture containing native micro-flora and bio- indicator plants are the key components of the system. It is also known as Constructed Soil Filter (CSF). SBT systems are constructed from RCC, stone-masonry or soil bunds. It consists of raw water tank, bioreactor containment, treated water tank, piping and pumps.|
