Ecosan: Separating Waste to Create Fertilizer, IDDS Hogares Sostenibles

Sep 27, 2017

IDDS participants and community partners developed a latrine that separates liquid and solid waste. This way, the solid waste can potentially be used as fertilizer. The design also includes a water catchment system that collects rainfall for hand washing in an enclosed container. Properly sorting and managing the waste can reduce contamination of local water sources and household land. This report is in Spanish.

This report was created by a team of participants at IDDS Hogares Sostenibles. It aims to share information and knowledge gleaned from the team’s work during the summit.
