The compendium gives low-cost technologies, an aspect that is favorable for the poor developing countries, and is designed to make WASH facilities easily accessible to the disabled people. It can also be used by the aged people. The main focus of the publication is on the household facilities.

The most attractive aspect of the compendium is that, it gives high resolution pictures (provided the high resolution version is accessed), and attractive, colorful line diagrams, thus increasing the usefulness of the publication.

The compendium can be accessed at www.wateraid.org/accessibleWASHtechnologies.

Re: NaWaTech Compendium of Technologies avaliable on SuSanA library - by: Katie http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/89-new-publications-books-articles-partner-newsletters-journals-blogs-websites-videos/10241-nawatech-compendium-of-technologies-avaliable-on-susana-library#11300 http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/89-new-publications-books-articles-partner-newsletters-journals-blogs-websites-videos/10241-nawatech-compendium-of-technologies-avaliable-on-susana-library#11300
Thanks a lot for your feedback on the NaWaTech compendium. You are right, this compendium tries to focus more on the specific case of India and inspire practitioners what sustainable solutions might be possible in this context, rather than being a detailed engineering manual for the various technologies (for this other sources exist). As Lucia mentioned, we are working on a revision, so any comments are highly appreciated (and we’ll try to include a slightly smaller file).

Unfortunately our project website (www.nawatech.net) is still offline; however, it should be fixed by the end of the week. I invite you all to check it then, as other project reports and news will be regularly posted there. For example, we are planning a NaWaTech conference in India towards the end of next year. Furthermore, you can find information abour our NaWaTech Community of Practice on Facebook (www.facebook.com/pages/NaWaTech-Communit...tice/362587563828187).

Best regards,
Katie

Am sorry for posting this thanking you rather late for your article which was published in the Africa Water, Sanitation & Hygiene November - December 2014 Vol.9 No.8 edition. But as they say in English – Its better late than never. Am afraid to say I was bogged down by an assignment. Apologies. Is this the way you would have liked us to publish your presentation?

Surprisingly, none of the viewers in the forum commented on Mr. Canaday’s ‘How Do Urine-diverting Dry Toilets Work?

The three papers presented are:
• The new sludge treatment line that is currently implemented at the Vienna main wastewater treatment plant (the contribution summarises public available material),
• Markus Lechner describes the design of the first sludge drying reed bed in Montenegro, and
• Magdalena Bäuerl et al. present results of the project FaME on resource recovery from faecal sludge in Sub-Saharan Africa.

I have just gone through the book particularly the chapters dealing with waste water treatment. It is collection of available technologies. It mentions technologies – ABR, Anaerobic filter, SBR, MBR, MMBR, biogas technology, and sludge drying beds- planted and unplanted and others. It lacks technical details of the technologies mentioned. Some chapters on water and waste water have been written by Ecosan Services Foundation with examples in India.
Under references, it mentions book on Compendium of technologies by EAWAG/ SANDEC. Regarding Sludge drying beds for septage management, information available in the book by EAWAG/ SANDAC is much more and practical than this book.
The book may be useful for those interested in the field. I could not find the cost of the book.
It took about 2 hrs to download the book.

thanks for your note. Indeed the file is quite large, as the book includes many fotos, drawings and full graphic design. We are working on a revision, so we´ll try and have a lower resolution version in the comming months, which we will of course share with you.

The NaWaTech Compendium covers specifically the case of India, and includes specific chapters about the water situation in India, and examples of previous experiences in India in each technology factsheet. I invite you to have some patience downloading the file and check out the book, it would be really nice to hear your comments on the content.

As for our project website (www.nawatech.net), it´s currently down but our IT department is working on it and should be up again in the coming days. There you will find the Compendium (exaclty the same file) as well as many other reports, since our results are public, so please log in in a couple of days!

Lucía
