Globally, an estimated 2.8 billion people rely on septic tanks, latrines or other improved non-sewered sanitation technologies. There is a lack of solutions to adequately manage fecal sludge that collects in these technologies. This results in negative implications for public and environmental health, and economic development. There is a need for decentralized fecal sludge treatment that can be quickly deployed and affordably operated.
