17:15 End of webinar


Attendance at this webinar is open to any SuSanA member or interested people (your attendance will be with or without microphone rights and video, depending on the number of people as well as your bandwidth).

Once recorded, the webinar will be put online on the SuSanA Youtube channel ( www.youtube.com/user/susanavideos ) after some basic editing - see also links to previous recordings above.

During the webinar, people in the audience can also use the chat function of Adobe Connect to ask questions.

There is no need to download any software to attend (simply go to this website: connect.sunet.se/arno/ ). However, you must obtain the password to enter the room. To obtain the password, please e-mail myself or e-mail Elisabeth von Muench, the organiser of this webinar: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Some possible questions that may be discussed:
  • In terms of designing practical and implementable sanitation systems can you see your system being used on a day to day basis in the future? (in which setting or context and by whom)
  • How do you see the operation and maintenance scheme?
  • What social and institutional aspects are relevant to examine before scaling up?
  • What are the hygiene aspects, e.g. regarding containment and treatment?
  • What is done with the products (e.g. sludge), reuse or disposal?
  • In terms of the different business models (inclusive technology option, distribution scheme, operation and maintenance scheme), how do you estimate potential for up-scaling in the future and in which settings?
  • What can you tell us about the capital costs and the operation and maintenance costs of the tested technologies/schemes?
Regards,
Arno & Elisabeth
