INTEGRATION OF FAECAL SLUDGE (FSM) & SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT (SWM)

Joining faecal sludge (FSM) and solid waste management (SWM) is a win-win

WASTE is working for over 40 years in off-site sanitation and solid waste with a strong focus on business development, resource recovery and circular economy. More and more the two sectors can profit and support each other especially when focusing on reuse and treatment. Recent studies on co-composting in which organic waste is used to enhance the treatment of fecal sludge is one example only.
