Nature-Based Units as Building Blocks for Resource Recovery Systems in Cities
Cities are producers of high quantities of secondary liquid and solid streams that are still poorly utilized within urban systems. In order to tackle this issue, there has been an ever-growing push
Adapting Santiago Method to Determine Appropriate and Resource Efficient Sanitation Systems for an Urban Settlement in Lima Peru
The pre-selection of locally appropriate sanitation technologies and systems is crucial for strategic sanitation planning as any decision is only as good as the options presented. One approach that
Holistically Managing Pathogens and Nutrients in Urbanizing Tropical Towns: Can Sanitation Technologies Create Safer Conditions for Beach Recreation?
Rapidly urbanizing coastal communities are prone to overpopulation and unrestrained growth that result in pathogen and nutrient emissions, which impair beach water quality and jeopardize human and ...

Resource efficiency of urban sanitation systems : a comparative assessment using material and energy flow analysis
Within the framework of sustainable development it is important to find ways of reducing natural resource consumption and to change towards closed‐loop management. As in many

A review of sanitation technologies to achieve multiple sustainable development goals that promote resource recovery
In 2015 the global community approved the seventeen sustainable development goals (SDGs). The SDGs include a goal regarding access to clean water and sanitation with specific targets such as
Sustainable design of sanitation system based on material and value flow analysis for urban slum in Indonesia
Material flow analysis and value flow analysis were applied to the sanitation system in an urban slum in Indonesia and an affordable initial cost for such a system was calculated; this was found to be comparable in price to a cheaper composting toilet that is currently available in the market.
A Flowstream Approach for Sustainable Sanitation Systems
This chapter describes a novel method for organizing and defining sanitation systems to facilitate informed decision-making and an integrated approach using a flowstream approach to sanitation system planning.
Innovative sanitation approaches could address multiple development challenges.

A better understanding of driving forces and enabling environments, new organizational models based on more service-oriented sanitation provision, and highlighting potential multiple societal benefits to attract investments from new sectors are identified areas that need further attention.
A review of nature-based solutions for resource recovery in cities
The present review article focuses on urban wastewater, industrial wastewater, municipal solid waste and gaseous effluents, the recoverable products, as well as the implications of source-separation and circularity by design.
