At present, there are many UASB plants that are in operation in India and some are in developing phase which will made next 3 to 4 years. UASB reactor design and construction in past was shows quite different and the very first 5 MLD treatment capacities plant that were demonstrated and constructed at Kanpur, India under the Ganga Action Plan in 80’s. This paper was reviews overall UASB technology in Mirzapur, India. UASB technology potential was shows in developing countries for future use on the bases of evaluation of life cycle cost of UASB. UASB’s plant used for waste water treatment and it is most favourable methods. Waste water treatment plants have challenges to treat the excess sludge and disposal of sludge and it was economically, environmentally supported. For using UASB technology to explore, develop and reduce sludge production though biologically process. This paper reviews the mechanism of sludge reduction by UASB plants. By using the cost analysis and environmental impact assessment to reduce the sludge and its practical approach to treat the water through UASB process.
