Webinar on „adding missing links in sanitation value chains“
On April 29th 2014 Gates Foundation sanitation grantees and SuSanA members virtually met in a webinar to discuss missing links in sanitation value chains. Three grantees – Francis de los Reyes, Daniel Yeh and Brian von Herzen – presented their research topics that add an element to already existing sanitation systems or chains. Is a power auger “Excrevator” a suitable tool to empty pit latrines in South Africa and septic tanks in India? How can a membrane reactor be used to treat off-grid toilet products in the field? How can faeces be transformed into biochar? Seecon as the lead of the SuSanA working group 1 supports the exchange of experiences and knowledge within the sanitation community.
