The SoE Open Day presentation runners-up winner, Eric Mugaa received his award from the Dean, SoE, Prof. J. Mbuthia on Friday, March 18, 2016 for his project entitled “The Effects of Enzyme Additives on Performance of Domestic Septic Tanks”.
The project is in bid to achieve Kenya Vision 2030 as the enzymes digest the sludge and scum. This reduces the pumping out rate, hence saving on pumping expenses. Smaller septic tanks can therefore be designed saving on land which as a finite resource. Sustainability is guaranteed as these are organics digesting organics.
