A basic market survey for compost made from human fecal sludge was conducted during the months of April and May, 2013, in Freetown, Sierra Leone. This survey compiled information on available soil amendments as well as potential customer groups with the aim of estimating potential demand for fecal sludge compost. Customer acceptance of fecal sludge re-?use along with perceived ability and willingness to pay were also assessed. A review of GOAL’s pilot co-?composting facility was also conducted and recommendations were provided regarding the structures in place as well as all operational plans. Finally, available organic solid wastes (OSW) were identified as potential co-?composting material for the pilot facility.
This report was commissioned by GOAL Sierra Leone and Oxfam Sierra Leone, and prepared by Nick Preneta. Funding for the project was made available by the UK Department for International Development (DFID).
