Faecal Sludge management

The India Sanitation Conclave will be a platform for deliberating on the various themes around corporate engagement in sanitation across India, from policy and regulatory enablers to best practices and business opportunity through the Build-Use-Maintain-Treat value chain.
On-site sanitation systems are options which help treat the waste at source, rather than dealing with it several miles away in a centralized manner. In the absence of sewerage systems and piped supplies, communities have to devise decentralized ways to deal with their shit. Some of the most common on-site sanitation systems include septic tanks and pit latrines.
