Lessons Learned from the Dissemination of Biodigesters for Sanitation in Haiti, from 2010 to 2013

Dear SuSanA Members,

It is with great pleasure that we share with you on the SuSanA Forum our research report “Lessons Learned from the Dissemination of Biodigesters for Sanitation in Haiti, from 2010 to 2013”.

The entire document may be viewed here:

The report is the result of a research into the dissemination of biodigesters for sanitation in Haiti in the period 2010 – 2013. The research was carried out by Norwegian Church Aid (NCA) from September to December 2013. The overall purpose in carrying out the research was to evaluate the functionality of biodigesters and their toilets up to 4 years after their construction. The evaluation was based upon the 3 objectives that the biodigesters were designed to address:

• Sanitation (i.e. toilets, wastewater treatment and pathogen removal); 

• Renewable energy (in the form of ‘biogas’); and 

• Nutrient rich digestate (in the form of ‘biol’).

We encourage all forum users with a particular interest in biodigesters, Faecal Sludge Management, DEWATS, or indeed Haiti, to read the report and provide feedback.

A more in depth technical analysis of the report’s findings, will be presented at the 3rd International Faecal Sludge Management Conference in Hanoi, Vietnam, during the podium session on Anaerobic treatment on Tuesday the 20th January 2014. To all interested conference delegates, we look forward to seeing you there.

Finally, may we take this opportunity to wish all Forum users a Merry Christmas and a safe, healthy, sustainable, and joyous 2015!

With festive regards,

The NCA WASH team in Haiti.
