Course 2 TRANSFER AND TREATMENT OF HUMAN EXCRETA AND GREYWATER
This course consists of 7 units, and is the largest one of the module. We deal with all technical issues of treatment, divided by the kind of treatment and by the kind of stream that can be treated with that technology.
Of course we know that proper technology is not a guarantee to success; yet, we also know that not having proper technology is a guarantee to have no success.. That is why we first lay a good foundation of technology, and then move on to other factors in the Courses to come.
Where does Course 2 fit in the overall scheme of a closed loop system?
Aims of the Course:
- To have an overview of the technologies that can be applied to the treatment of urine, faeces and greywater
- To know how and where these technologies are applied
- To know the benefits and the downsides of the technologies discussed
- To be able to generally assess any technologies on their application within an ecosan concept
