Compost production from Pistia stratiotes biomass generated by a macrophytic sewage treatment system in Yaounde (Cameroon)



Compost production from Pistia stratiotes biomass generated by a macrophytic sewage treatment system in Yaounde (Cameroon)



Cahiers Agricultures 6(1): 15-19



A Pistia-based sewage treatment system was constructed in Yaounde to treat 45 msuperscript 3/day of sewage from Biyeme Assi, a residential area of about 650 inhabitants. The system includes a series of 8 ponds excavated on a site with compacted laterite soil; there is a gentle 6-14% slope to allow gravitational flow of sewage.
