Abstract

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. Poor or remote communities need technologies developed for the application, and an economically viable whole-of-waste approach is necessary. 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.
