ABSTRACT
Since water is such an important resource and there is a strong likelihoodthat the world will face a fresh water shortage in the near future, we mustfind ways to more efficiently manage our limited sources of water. One of these ways is to reuse and recycle water by purifying wastewater. To treatwastewater, many wastewater treatment facilities currently use largeamounts of energy and chemicals which are harmful to the environment. This project will research a new Japanese technology –
“Eco Bio Block” 
andtest its efficiency in dealing with various pollutants present in
Sewage Water 
by checking its effect on various parameters like pH, Temperature,Conductivity, DO, TDS, Salinity, Turbidity etc.
The ECO BIO-BLOCK (EBB
) is a composite of cement and highly porousvolcanic rock. EBB has a very large surface area to which beneficial watertreating microbes
(Bacillus subtilis sp. natto)
and nutrients have beeninfused.
 
 The key to EBB's effectiveness is the ability to maintain high levelsof beneficial microbes within the blocks for a extended period of time. Thegreat benefit of the Eco Bio-Block is that the system does not requireconstant seeding of bacteria to maintain high levels of beneficial microbes. The microbes have a stable an long term platform from which to propagate.
 
Introduction: Eco Bio Block (EBB)
Changing life style has introduced many chemicals in the basic humanrequirements like food, water and air. Water is available aplenty on the Earth.However, potable clean water is becoming a rare commodity. Where it isavailable, the quality of the water for human consumption is highly suspect.Adding further to the environmental pollution is the free flow of untreatedsewage, industrial and other waste into water bodies. Organic / inorganicchemicals are added to rid impure water of malevolent organisms,nauseating and pungent odour. While these chemicals do purify water bykilling organisms (useful and harmful), they also create a lot of side effectson sustained usage.Keeping these things in mind the ECO BIO-BLOCK (EBB) has been developedover the last 16 years to help nature keep water clean and free of harmfulcontaminants and to also improve on today’s water and sewage treatmenttechnologies. Simply put, EBB is a natural way of cleansing the waters. EBBis obtained through natural means and hence do not cause harm to thehuman system as well as the environment.
 
 The block itself is a composite of cement and highly porous volcanic rock. EBB has a very large surface area towhich beneficial water treating microbes and nutrients have been infused.EBB is so effective, less intrusive and come in different sizes and forms thatthey fit in well into the existing system seamlessly. The key to EBB'seffectiveness is the ability to maintain high levels of beneficial microbeswithin the blocks for a extended period of time. In a nutshell, EBB exploitsthe nature’s power for cleansing water naturally while ridding water of theodour.
 
Manufacturing Process of EBB:
Eco Bio Block is non-toxic. EBB is obtained from natural resources. It is madeby mixing effective microbe with cement and the porous stones. EBB doesnot contain any organic / inorganic chemicals at all. It is represented in thefollowing figure:
