In this video we speak to Samuel Getahun from the Pollution Research Group at the University of KwaZulu Natal who is researching the benefits of drying faecal sludge.
Samuel discusses how his research can help reduce costs in the sanitation service chain e.g. reducing the volume of sludge through thermal drying, and recovering vital resources such as fuel.
Research like this is valuable in understanding how we can best treat and re-use sludge.
