Decentralized or on-site treatment systems for domestic waste and wastewater treatment can be the answer to many of the world’s environmental health problems.

Vermicomposting offers a natural option to treat domestic waste and wastewater into reusable products. The extent of treatment can be incorporated into the design, providing flexibility and scalability required for the user community.
