Abstract

Jigjiga University is one of the new universities in Ethiopia, which is established from 2009. The total area of this campus is 350 hectares and the total population is 21374 students and 2155 teaching as well as non-teaching staff. The maximum quantity of sewage flow in the campus is 882337 lit/day approximately. University constructed a treatment plant in the campus and the following treatment process is followed like Screening, sedimentation (primary and secondary), coagulation, oxidation ditch, sludge digestion, and oxidation pond. But here they are focusing only on the sewage treatment process. But here I am focusing to use sewage sludge as a fertilizer after the treatment process. The profitable indicators selected were money, process and administration, and user costs because they resolve the profitable affordability of a particular technology to society. Environmental indicators include energy use because it in some way measures resource utilization, and performance of the technology. Find the treated sewage sludge nutrients such as potassium, ammonia, nitrogen, phosphorus, and other compost. These indicators also determine the reuse possibilities of the treated wastewater sludge as fertilizer. Community indicators detain educational recognition of the technology through public participation and also measure whether there is an improvement in the community from the specific technology. The overall results of this study prove that sewage sludge having fertility content and we can use sewage sludge as a fertilizer by sewage treatment technology.
