This study investigated the effect of additional moisture and/or alkalinity on the rate of anaerobic digestion in samples of material obtained from pit latrines. In modified serum bottle tests it was shown that poor gas production rates were observed from all experiments with material collected at the lower part of one pit. Using material from the top layer(More)
Pit latrines are on-site sanitation systems for accumulation and stabilization of faecal matter, urine and probably some other materials added to the system over a certain period of time. However, the process of anaerobic decomposition of materials in pit latrines is slow, resulting into build up of organic waste, odour production and fly nuisance which(More)
