Public Urinals Systems for Emergency Situations

Vote here waste.nl/en/design-contest

Your votes please…..
This design contest managed by WASTE in close cooperation with the Netherlands Red Cross is part of the Emergency Sanitation Project, which is being undertaken by a consortium of the International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC), Oxfam GB and WASTE and is funded by the US Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA). It aims to increase the global understanding of current and future emergency situations and to propose new concepts and modular technologies for safe excreta disposal in emergency settings that are applicable in a variety of situations. See www.emergencysanitationproject.org for more information.

The context resulted in 14 applications from 11 different countries:

Experts in the field of emergency sanitation scored the applications. We now call upon the general public to vote for their favorite among 4 nominated entries. The voting closes Sunday 17 November at 12 pm GMT.

Re: IFRC, Oxfam UK and WASTE Advisers have launched the Emergency Sanitation Project with interesting contests

I wouldn't say that quality is unimportant. The point is that at the moment we have no methods for treating large quantities of sludge in emergencies. We don't want to make the perfect the enemy of the good. Any improvement in quality is a step forward. Over time, I expect that effluent quality will increase, but we have to start somewhere and we can't reject any ideas now.

Thanks, that is a very interesting idea - I hope you get lots of entries and it generates some new thinking in emergency sanitation.

I have to record that I'm sad that in Emergency Sanitation it appears sludge treatment quality is of a minor importance in disposal. Whilst I can understand that, it seems to me to be a major flaw in the paradigm.

IFRC, Oxfam UK and WASTE Advisers have launched the Emergency Sanitation Project with interesting contests

The Emergency Sanitation Project aims to increase the global understanding of current and future emergency sanitation. It is to propose new concepts and modular technologies for safe excreta disposal in emergency settings that are applicable in a variety of situations. A menu of options will be available through the development of specialised emergency sanitation modules, which are rapid to deploy and are cost-effective when compared with traditional solutions. ESP is looking at a wide range of issues and invites you to visit its website
www.emergencysanitationproject.org/

Today the Emergency Sanitation Project has published two interesting contests: one on wastewater treatment and one on public urinal systems.
