Utilization of Lagerstroemia speciosa dry leaf litter combined with cat-tle dung for the production of enriched vermicompost – A possibility of valorization

Purpose: Waste and waste disposal is a universal problem and attention is required in all ways. The plant generated waste (leaf litter) is also a type of organic waste that creates multiple issues in urban areas. Method: Vermicomposting is a suitable alternative safe, hygienic, and cost-effective disposal of organic solid waste with the help of […]

Fabrication of a vermifiltration unit for wastewater recycling and performance of vermifiltered water (vermiaqua) on onion (Allium cepa)

Purpose Vemifltration units are sludge-free, noise-free and low- or no-electricity-requiring systems of operation. The aim of this study was to emphasize wastewater treatment by vermifiltration technology using waste-eater earthworms to highlight the benefits of clean and nutritive vermifiltered water (vermiaqua) uses in agriculture to the farmers. Methods Wastewater sample was filtered through fabricated vermifiltration unit […]
