SBR Technology which can carry out five stages of wastewater treatment in a single chamber will treat more water in a smaller area. This SBR procedure would cost less than the various biological treatment methods available in the country. SBR system treats wastewater better than other wastewater treatment systems. It is a lightweight approach and would also reduce power consumption.
