One of the intense problems that the planet is facing Environment pollution. In India, increasing population, industrialization and urbanization are prime contributors to the present. One of the important and critical issue to prevent damages to the environment is the Treatment and disposal of domestic and industrial wastewater. There is a large gap between the wastewater generation and its treatment. Also, the unregulated discharge of wastewater results in severe pollution of groundwater and surface water in India.
