Re: Implementer's Guide to Lime Stabilization for Septage Management in the Philippines

If you are dealing with mostly solid nearly fresh feces, co-composting might be the better solution. Specifically pipe-aerated windrow composting (to minimize manual handling) in medium sized plants closer to the campsites might be worth testing.

I also posted a presentation on possible use of ATAD systems, but this hasn't been tested under such conditions: forum.susana.org/280-faecal-sludge-treat...treatment-kits#22225

Thanks for your suggestions. Actually reuse is difficult here. As the area is big and road communications is not possible due to hilly areas. Small area based decentrlised treatment will be more wise.

Heading the UNICEF WASH Team for Yolanda response 2013-2015 when the lime stabilisation plants for Tacloban were constructed as an emergency option ONLY for bunkhouse and evacuation centres at the peak of the emergency response I would like to refer you to the SUSANA project site providing details on

PhATS (Philippines Approach to Total Sanitation in Haiyan affected areas) here at Susana Forum , which provides more details on how the lime stabilisation ponds were set up in two locations as an emergency treatment option and how this links to the overall approach moving from emergency to development within a systems approach to scale up sanitation in partnership with NGOs and government. This set the ground to develop and construct a sophisticated ABR based WWT which is now functional, (to be operated by the City of Tacloban).
