Sludge Love at 4th International Faecal Sludge Management Conference
A few weeks ago, SOIL Directors Sasha Kramer and Nick Preneta traveled to Chennai, India to represent SOIL at the 4th International Faecal Sludge Management Conference (FSM4). Sasha gave a presentation about SOIL’s EkoLakay program, and we also shared two posters about Konpòs Lakay and our ongoing cost analysis research.

While in India, Sasha and Nick also had the opportunity to participate in the first official meeting of the Container-Based Sanitation Alliance. The goal of the CBS Alliance is to promote CBS as a technology that can make a global impact in combatting the sanitation crisis, and to perform comparative research to inform and improve CBS standards and toolkits.
Amazing meeting of the newly founded #CBSAlliance @loowatt @Sanivation @xrunners @Sanergy @CleanTeamGhana #FSM4

We’ll continue to share news about the CBS Alliance and all the cool conferences SOIL is attending – though not all of them will have names as spiffy as the Faecal Sludge Management Conference!
Got something to say?
