El presente documento trata un sistema de saneamiento diseñado específicamente para el manejo de excrementos secos, llamado baño seco con separación de orina. Este es un sistema de saneamiento aplicable a cualquier tipo de instalación (hogareña, industrial, pública, comunitaria, etc.). Las pautas de diseño funcionales que lo componen son las siguientes: separación desde el origen de la materia fecal y la orina, la operación sin agua, y cámaras ventiladas o contenedores para el almacenamiento y tratamiento de las heces. Los baños secos con separación de orina pueden ser construidos con dos cámaras de deshidratación adyacentes o una sola cámara con contenedores intercambiables.
Esta publicación ofrece una descripción completa de las funciones de los baños secos, así como consideraciones de diseño, formas de operarlo, cuestiones vinculadas a su mantenimiento y costos generales de instalación. Esta tecnología es potencialmente aplicable a todo el país haciendo especial énfasis en los sectores donde no haya conexión a la red cloacal o tengan problemas de acceso al agua.
