Vermifiltration was used for treatment of sewage wastewater using the Eisenia fetida earthworm species. The earthworms’ gut acted as a bioreactor whereby there was reduction in the sewage wastewater’s solid and liquid organic wastes through ingestion and expelling these as vermicompost. 500 earthworms were used in the vermifilter over a 5 period of days. The treated water pH increased from being acidic to neutral. The sewage wastewater biological oxygen demand (BOD 5 ), chemical oxygen demand…

Bioremediation of Transport Industry Contaminants Using Vermicompost
Transport industries pose environmental challenges due to leaks of engine oils both to soil and water. Engine oil is highly organic therefore there is need to bio-remediate the contaminated soil and

Now-a-days many developing countries cannot afford the wastewater treatment processes as they are costly,need more space to construct the treatment plant and in addition use of chemicals for the
Distillery Effluent Treatment Using Membrane Bioreactor Technology Utilising Pseudomonas Fluorescens
Distilleries produce vast amounts of contaminated effluents which if disposed to the water bodies will pose environmental problems hence need to treat this effluent. A membrane bioreactor with
Removing Organic Matter and Nutrients from Pig Farm Wastewater with a Constructed Wetland System
TLDR
The results showed that the in-series constructed wetland is a feasible system for nutrient pollutant removal, with COD removal efficiency of 76% and 80% mg·L−1 for a 5- and 10-day HRT, respectively, and indicates that HRT positively affects removal Efficiency of COD and TDS.
GRANULATION OF VERMICOMPOST USING VERMIWASH AS BINDING MEDIA
Vermicompost is a bio-fertiliser that is obtained from the bio-conversion of organic waste using earthworms. However, this vermicompost exist in paste form thereby the need for granulation to make it
Community-based waste management strategies in relation to a targeted Nepalese community
The Bagmati River, which is of great cultural and religious importance to the Nepalese people, is also a major water resource. Its degradation, as a result of urbanization and industrialization,
Manyuchi, M.M. and Whingiri, E. Effect of vermicomposting period, substrate quantity, cow dung composition and their interactions on Eisenia Fetida during vermicomposting
TLDR
Vermicomposting is the bio-conversion of organic waste into solid and liquid biofertilizers through the earthworms gut which act as the bio,reactor.
