Abstract: In Sub-Saharan Africa, sanitation needs for the majority of the urban population are met by onsite sanitation technologies. Cities grapple with management of faecal sludge (FS) once these technologies become full, while at the same time the urban economy is resource intensive. The FaME (Faecal Management Enterprises) project addressed both of these issues by identifying untapped markets for FS treatment products. Industries have a high fuel demand and FaME demonstrated that dried FS could be used as a solid combustible in industrial kilns. Existing treatment technologies were adapted for fuel production, and its application was demonstrated in two pilot kilns. Historically used as a soil conditioner, processing of FS to a solid biofuel could provide higher revenues, thereby providing a financial incentive for stakeholders to enhance FS management service along the entire sanitation chain.
