Technological options for solid and liquid waste management in rural areas

Management of solid or liquid wastes in rural areas is much easier than in urban areas due to the fact that there are no highly contaminated industrial wastes. In rural areas, most of the wastes can be safely reused for beneficial purposes with limited resources. Further, in rural areas there are usually less space constraints allowing for the application of natural wastewater treatment systems therefore increasing to choice of options. This handbook aims to provide complete information on sustainable technologies for wastewater as well as solid wastes for rural areas.
