For anyone who is interested in the sustainable sanitation activities that are being carried out in the Netherlands, I can recommend reading the most recent newsletter by the company LeAF (who joined as a SuSanA partner last year, see here: forum.susana.org/forum/categories/87-new...ganisation-of-susana)

For anyone interested in UASBs, the last article by the "grandfather" of UASBs, Gatze Lettinga, is a must-read, I think.

If you have questions about any of the mentioned projects, please write a reply post here and I will alert the responsible person at LeAF to your post, so that they can answer here.

LeAF Course on New Sanitation – The Resource Recovery Approach
In spring this year LeAF will organize a two day course “New Sanitation – The Resource Recovery Approach” (8-9 April 2014). The aim of this course is to inform the audience on how to make concrete steps towards the New Sanitation (also known as Sustainable Sanitation or EcoSanitation) in the built environment.

New Sanitation in Venlo
The former military area "Kazernekwartier" in Venlo will be developed into a multi-purpose area based on Cradle to Cradle (C2C) principles. The functions of the buildings of Kazernekwartier are not yet fixed, but the ideas include large-scale leisure facilities, a Casino Event Center, sports and wellness facilities, hotel, a health care institution and thematic retail. New Sanitation has been selected as part of the measures that can be undertaken to achieve the C2C objectives.

Wet torrefaction of biomass generates usable fuels
Salty and wet biomasses are generally difficult to process as a fuel in incineration or gasification. ECN developed TORWASH, a wet torrefaction treatment that can convert this type of biomass into a usable solid fuel.
