The present document consists of an addendum of data to the Handbook of Methods for Faecal Sludge Analysis. It is part of a project funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates (BMGF) through the OPP1164143, untitled “Characterization of faecal material during drying”. This project was granted for funding after the 5-years Transformative Technologies convening at the BMGF headquarters in 2016, where drying was recognized as a gap in the transformative technologies for the implementation of innovative sanitation technologies.
The addendum of data compiles the results from experiments directly related to drying or having indirect implications in the process. The data was obtained from experimental work conducted from 2013 to date, and involving several research institutions.
In the addendum, the data is organized in datasheets that are categorized in different thematics according to the content. Moreover, this document includes a background with a landscape about faecal sludge drying, description of the fundamentals aspects from faecal sludge drying to understand better the significance and applicability of the data, and a summary of the analysis from results from the datasheets with their implications.
