Re: Inquiry

As you rightly point out Dean, I am trying to start an experimental phase at the laboratory experimental site with the results obtained from my Ph.D. I will turn to funders and the stakeholders with my results in order to get funded for implementation since everyone sees the impact of this wastewater on the environment and health.

Re: Inquiry

Dear Atabong, I think that is a huge problem with pollution you are trying to tackle there and I really want to commend your effort. I just want to say as you look for a solution on best filtration options, you should pay much attention to sustainability of the initiative too. Here, I am mostly looking at affordability of the end product relative to market situation of compost in Cameroon in relation to running cost. I do not know how competitive the market is, but its a very important factor.

Re: Slaughter house SLW Management

Dear SuSana Members:

Our Fellow members in Cameroon - Atabong , Masango others have indicated their keen ness to establish An appropriate SLW Management practices, well complying and sustainable in the prevailent conditions at a Developing region.

A pilot trials may be initiated to convert both waste water and solid wastes into resources, leaving very minimal remains that need to be safely disposed off from site.

The technology employed needs to be basic and elementary, that which can be dealt with village farmer-plumber. eg septic tanks, filters Etc.. Dewats type. with no mechanisation, fail- safe methods and provision for added redudancy in working devices and system.

Both Solid and Liquid waste mngmnt. ought to be a revenue generating, so that costs and op-expenses are duly met and plants sustained in its own merit.

Our Members may be aware of the above indicated features, but it is indicated such that more can be slotted in as per site conditions Etc.

The SLWM plant needs to be well laid out with adequate aesthetics, greened with florals, pleasant for sight.

Notings are issued for community good and benefits on achieving SDGs

Well wishes for a Great year in 2020.
