Content - Summary

Short description of the project:
The project awarded to the Pollution Research Group builds on the knowledge, strengths and experience gained by the team during the Phase 1 implementation. The objective is to characterise physical and chemical properties of excreta streams from dry on?site sanitation systems or from decentralized low?water consuming sanitation systems. The data will be passed to other grantees for use in their research.
Assistance will be provided to other BMGF grantees in establishing and evaluating their prototypes in Durban, and providing a support of their work by:
- obtaining experimental data of a range of excreta streams,
- undertaking generic process investigations on selected excreta streams,
- developing process models of material flows and transformations,
- facilitating field trials for BMGF grantees in Durban, and
obtaining data from other countries (either field or from prototypes) in the last few months of the project.

The Pollution Research Group is also able to provide the following facilities for any grantees willing to visit Durban:
- Office space within the Pollution Research Group
- Use of the Pollution Research Group’s laboratory and pilot areas
- Access to field sites under the control of the eThekwini Municipality (Water and Sanitation Division).
