  • This thesis investigates treatment technologies for human excreta for safe recycling of the plant nutrients present as fertilizers. The thesis consists of three papers, the first of which investigates incineration of faecal matter as a treatment and sanitation method using a locally fabricated incinerator made of steel sheets. The second and third papers investigate composting of faeces and food waste at two size scales, using 78-litre and 216litre wooden reactors. Incineration of faeces… CONTINUE READING
