Re: Virtual workshop about faecal sludge drying - reminder: last days for registration

Dear Septien,

Do you happen to have the recorded session of the workshop to upload and share here?  How was the attendance and what did the discussion weigh on?   

Faecal sludge drying is an interesting and important topic. Treatment and disposal of faecal sludge is obviously a major concern in the sanitation sector. The sector continues to explore options on how to make faecal sludge less detrimental to the environment and more beneficial as a resource. See a similar discussion and webinar (experiences from across the African continent) on the topic of FS reuse here:  forum.susana.org/98-resource-recovery-fr...ludge-re-use-options  

In Zambia, discussions have been had in the recent past about drying options and the use of dry sludge in powering cement production plants. Of course, the issue of the large volumes demanded for this is something that has halted the discussions for now....
