Muspratt, A., Miller, A. (2018)

Mechanical Dewatering for Fecal Sludge Treatment Applications Process & Technology Review

When properly designed and sized, WSPs deliver high quality effluent at marginal running costs. Their minimal maintenance requirements make them relatively hard to break – the textbook example of “appropriate technology”.
The simplicity and elegance of natural treatments systems will always have a special place in the hearts of many sanitation engineers but their large footprint has made …

Alison Parker: Nano Membrane Toilet, demonstration of exhibit (Cranfield Uni, UK) , Part 2

Taking policy action to improve small-scale water supply and sanitation systems

Access to adequate water and sanitation services is essential for good individual and population health. People served by small-scale systems in rural areas and small towns have the right to the same level of health protection as others.

Recommendations concerning the scaling-uppotential of BORDA-DEWATS wastewater treatment in the urban context of Kabul, Afghanistan

BORDA-DEWATS constitutes the treatment element of a sanitation concept that starts with the individual user interface, the toilet, and continues with a simplified sewer system that connects a neighbourhood of less than 10 households up to a few hundred households. The collected wastewater then enters the treatment stage. Solid matter sediments under anaerobic conditions and decomposes by …

FSM Innovation Case Studies
Case Studies on the Business, Policy and Technology of Faecal Sludge Management (second edition)

Worldwide, 2.7 billion people rely on onsite sanitation and more than 4.5 billion people do not have access to safely managed sanitation services. Yet, in many places there is still no management system in place to deal with the faecal sludge (e.g. septage and pit latrine sludge) from such systems. This results in the faecal waste often being dumped directly into the immediate residential …

The sanitation ladder – a need for a revamp?

The sanitation ladder is a useful tool that is being used to monitor progress towards the sanitation target of the MDGs. This tool could be even more useful if it can be refined to be based on the functions of sanitation systems rather than on a hierarchy of predefined sanitation technologies.

This paper presents a seven-rung function-based sanitation ladder where the functions can be broadly …

Natural water systems and treatment technologies to cope with water shortages in urbanized areas in India
NaWaTech Compendium of Technologies

Providing adequate water supply and sanitation, particularly in urban areas, is a challenging task for governments throughout the world. This task is made even more difficult due to predicted dramatic global changes.
