1 Doulaye Koné SANDEC / EAWAG – Switzerland www.sandec.ch firstname.lastname@example.org Tel.+41 44 823 55 53 Faecal Sludge Collection and transport technologies Environmental sanitation planning and infrastructures in developing countries
2 1.70-100 % of cities and towns in developing countries served by on-site sanitation (latrines and septic tanks) 3.Lack of regulations, illegal dumping and use of FS untreated 2.All installations produce FS to be collected ( trucks replacing sewer lines ?) On-site sanitation = the hidden reality
Engineers thrusts and beliefs How to empty this pit ? What happens next ? Challenges: how to shift our mind set?
4 Problems Pit emptying and FS haulage No access to pits Traffic congestion The challenge
Distance? Reuse potential? Humidity (hygienic quality)? Additional treatment (storage)? Greywater collection transportation and treatment? Quantity (size of neighbourhood)? Business opportunity? The challenge
Latrines emptying technology How does latrines technologies influence emptying technologies and performances ?
