What we do
In emergency situations, whether it is in a refugee camp or in a demolished city, adequate sanitation systems have to be set up so that people can continue to live in their ‘own’ environment and do not need to (be) move (d) to alternative locations, or seek means to defecate which poses a public health risk, and without the necessary privacy and dignity.
How we do it
In this project, WASTE with the consortium will be working to develop and test sanitation solutions for emergencies to ensure:
- Speedy sanitization & stabilization with the aim to sanitize and stabilize faecal matter in a multiple use household containers system and/or communal tanks so that it is safe for disposal
- Speedy decomposition by developing a bio-additive that can promote rapid decomposition of faecal matter in order to reduce fill-‐up rates.
The testing phase will take place in emergency areas.
