Names of workshop co-facilitators: Banu Örmeci (IWA, Workshop Chair and Panel co-Moderator), Markus Starkl (IWA, Panel Moderator)
Presentators: Sasha Kramer (Haiti) on composting of faecal sludge, Marie-Madeleine Ngoutane Pare (Cameroon) on market value of fodder, Michael Quintern and Kelvin Hill (New Zealand) on vermicomposting, Doulaye Kone (USA) on economic evaluation of fodder production from planted drying beds, Hidenori Harada (Japan) on night-soil treatment in Japan, Nick Alcock (South Africa) on black soldier fly farming, Moritz Gold (Switzerland), Dr. Charles Niwagaba (Uganda), Dr. Seydou Niang (Senegal) on faecal sludge to fuel, Olufunke Cofi (Ghana) on processing of faecal sludge to fertilizer pellets
Resource recovery is important to consider before choosing a method for faecal sludge treatment and management, to ensure technologies are adequately and appropriately designed to produce resource recovery products. This workshop will cover a wide range of resource recovery opportunities from faecal sludge including composting, vermicomposting, protein, fodder and plants, building materials and biofuels. The speakers are acknowledged leaders in their fields, and have been chosen from different countries and regions to better represent the diversity of the issues. The workshop is designed to be interactive and participatory, and will facilitate active involvement of the participants. Successful case studies will be presented.
Rationale / Purpose
The main goal of the workshop is to provide tools for selecting, designing and implementing the best resource recovery options from faecal sludge.
Specific learning objectives
- Learn the latest advances and applications on resource recovery from faecal sludge.
- Be able to select the best resource recovery options based on local conditions, availability of technology, market and demand, and feasibility.
- Learn how to design and manage infrastructure with resource recovery goals in mind.
- Understand concerns from pathogens and heavy metals, and how to ensure adequate protection of public health and environment
- The workshop will update the attendees on the most recent advances in resource recovery from faecal sludge.
- The workshop will present case studies and provide opportunities to share experiences and new knowledge in research, design, and implementation of resource recovery options.
- The workshop will discuss the scope of challenges faced in different parts of the world and will offer solutions to these challenges.
- Lively panel discussions will help to analyze complex issues and provide a deeper understanding of these issues.
- The participants will be provided with tools for selecting, designing and implementing the best resource recovery options.
