Sanitation Technologies

Technology Overview

Systematic compilation of all relevant sanitation technologies that can potentially be implemented in different humanitarian and more longer-term transitional settings (taken from the Compendium of Sanitation Technologies in Emergencies). The technologies are categorised and ordered according to the functional group to which they belong: User Interface, Collection and Storage, Conveyance, Treatment, and Use/Disposal. By clicking on a specific technology, the user can access a more in-depth technology information sheet with a description of the basic working principles and design considerations for each technology as well as information on key parameters such as applicability, cost implications, space and materials needed, operation and maintenance requirements and links to further literature and resources.
