This publication is the final technical report of a project, which was funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The link to the project can be seen below.
Drying is a relevant unit operation during faecal sludge and fresh faeces treatment. It allows the removal of moisture from the faecal matter and its disinfection, so making it safer to handle, easier to transport and a more suitable biofuel.
The Pollution Research Group (PRG), at the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN), received a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation through the OPP1164143 to investigate the drying of faecal materials (faecal sludge from onsite sanitation facilities and fresh faeces). The objectives of this research were to generate useful insight and data to overcome the current technological gaps from faecal wastes drying. This research project, done in collaboration with Swansea University and Cranfield University.
