Resource-oriented sanitation systems are designed to recover resources from wastewater while minimising the demand on other resources, particularly water and energy. This research explores the proposition that such systems offer a more sustainable alternative to conventional waterbourne systems. Its centrepiece is a case study of the world’s largest urban dry sanitation system designed for complete resource recovery, located at the Erdos Eco-Town Project (EETP) in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region of China. In the case study, the sustainability of the EETP’s dry system is compared against that of a conventional waterbourne system based on technical, environmental, economic, and societal indicators.
