DAIRY effluents from small farms can be treated efficiently at low cost by the sequencing batch reactor (SBR) process of waste water treatment, a research engineer from the National Institute of Agronomic Research, Norborne, France, Michel Torrijos said at the Kumaraguru College of Technology.
He explained that the chambers of the plants could be made of stainless steel or concrete. Waste underwent a four-step sequence of treatment involving filling, aeration, standing to allow settling and withdrawal of treated water. Each cycle took 24 hours to complete and the process could be repeated each day until the sludge filled up half the chamber of the plant.
