2.7 billion people worldwide currently rely on onsite sanitation technologies. The development of innovative solutions for collection, transport, treatment, and resource recovery of the resulting faecal sludge (FS) is essential to fulfill the sanitation needs of urban areas in low- and middle-income countries.
Faecal Sludge Management (FSM) is a relatively new and rapidly growing field. In addition to innovation, there is a great need for practical and reliable approaches that allow engineers to select and design treatment technologies. Sandec’s research addresses these gaps in sound engineering design approaches for FSM.
