Market Survey for Compost

SuSanA community,

I have attached a basic market survey for fecal-sludge compost in and around Freetown, Sierra Leone. This was part of a consultancy I completed earlier this year and will be used to help GOAL, a SuSanA member, as they pilot a co-composting facility in Freetown. If others have similar market surveys that have been completed in other countries around fecal sludge re-use, I'd be very interested in having a look.


Best,

Nick Preneta

This report was commissioned by GOAL Sierra Leone and Oxfam Sierra Leone, and prepared by Nick Preneta. Funding for the project was made available by the UK Department for International Development (DFID).

Re: Market Survey for Compost

Dear all,

I am currently working in Freetown as a consultant with IWA who have partnered with GOAL on a DFID-BMBF funded City Sanitation Partnership project to support Freetown City Council develop a commercially viable fecal sludge management strategy.

I'd be very interested to know of good examples where composting of fecal sludge has been successfully implemented at municipal scale.

best regards, Jonathan

Re: Market Survey for Compost

Jonathan and SuSanA partners,

I know that IWMI is currently working on a review of a large number of case studies of Resource Recovery and Reuse (RRR) programs in developing countries. This review is specifically interested in looking at the cases' business models, as many composting programs in the past have been dependent on subsidies and function only at a small scale. It will be very interesting to see the selected case studies and learn from different actors' experiences once this publication is complete.
