Nichrome Industries provide packaging solutions to the food and non-food manufacturing companies, by supplying packing machines. Soil scape filter technology was adopted to treat the domestic wastewater generated by 150 users.
Estimated wastewater generated is around 7-8 KLD. The waste water is first collected in the collection sump. With the help of the pump, it is transferred to the filtration unit. The waste water through the perforated pipe system is sprinkled over the soil scape filter. The system is planted with Canna indica. The wastewater trickles down vertically and the filtration process takes 10-30 min. The treated waste water is then stored in the storage sump which is reused for gardening.
