The use of domestic waste water for crop production has been practiced for several centuries in one form or another. Over the past 20 years there has been a strong revival of interest in the controlled use of waste water for crop irrigation. In addition to consumer health protection, the main reasons are:
• scarcity of alternative water supplies
• need to increase local food production
• need to improve rural health standards; and
• concern for the increasing degree of surface water contamination
XzioX is now one of the most economic and most effective method to disinfect waste water either as a primary or secondary disinfectant.
In the pictures below you can see the effects of XzioX on raw sewerage/excrement
The first bucket is an example of excrement collected from a sewage pond. The second bucket also had excrement in it but was treated with XzioX which within ten minutes had a noticeable effect
Again the first bucket is the example of excrement collected from the sewage pond. The second bucket has been left alone for three days. The white matter on the top is produced by the oxidisation process (the equivalent to table salt). With filtering and further disinfection this water would be perfectly safe to use for irrigation.
Many properties in Ghana use a septic tank or cesspit which over time needs to be emptied manually to remove waste and sediment - introducing XzioX into the drain system rapidly depletes solids which in turn increases the performance of the septic tank to discharge waste water before entering the soak-away. It also reduces significantly harmful bacteria that can contaminate ground water and localised soil areas.
