Pluto – GeoBag Based FSTP
Pluto faecal Sludge Treatment Plant enables:
- Odour Less environment and closed bag system
- Designated place for discharging the waste
- Local manpower
- Simple process which is understandable and manageable by local staff
- Batch process, eliminating the dependency of availability of electricity all the time
- Consistent quality of discharge water
- Local entrepreneurship through franchises
- Small Space requirement
Key features of Pluto:
Modular : The components of the treatment plant are made of ready-made Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP) tanks and the process room is containerised. The system does not require lot of civil works thereby reducing the time to erect and commission
Ease of operation: The system has minimum mechanical parts and automation, which can be handled by local youth after completing a basic training provided by Banka BioLoo.
Odourless Environment: The faecal sludge is stored in the Geobags and are not exposed to the open environment, keeping odour out and the treatment plant clean and mess free
Energy friendly: The use of only one pump needs very little electricity.
Low Cost: Low capex and opex leads to low total cost of ownership
Highly Sustainable and scalable: The factory made products and ease of setting up can help in scaling in numbers and parallel installations can be handled easily.
Effective treatment: The Geobag technology has been very effective in lowering the fluctuating BOD of the sludge & hence we are able to deliver constant quality. The solid is also decamped within the bag for 6 week killing all pathogens and helminths. BOD < 30 & ECOLi < 1000 MPN and <.01% Helminths in the solid.
