Untreated waste disposal leads to pollution which has potential threat to harm local community as well as leaving beings. In developing countries such as India, about 54.28% household lacks sanitation facilities hence pracitses open defecation.Open defecation causes odour and health risk to humans. Health risk is increased in monsoon and pollution of water sources .The use of firewood or kerosene filled stoves indoors is everyday practise in most of India.The use of such stoves is not only particularly bad for the environment but it also has detrimental health effects. Health effects due to smoke inhalation cause 1.6 million deaths per year, 28% of deaths due to indoor air pollution occur in india.These effects also account for 20% of fatalities in children under 5 years of age. To alleviate or end some of these unsustainable and dangerous practices the installation of a biogas settler with a latrine facility feed has been proposed.The system will collect waste from both human and animal faeces and convert it to energy and fertiliser.
