Bacterial contamination of reusable bottled drinking water in Ecuador
In northern coastal Ecuador, water is routinely sold in 20 L reusable bottles for household consumption. These bottles are filled at central treatment facilities and distributed by private water ...
Computational fluid dynamics analysis of a high-throughput viscous heater to process feces and a fecal simulant using temperature and shear rate-dependent viscosity model
Open defecation and poor fecal management facilitates the spread of disease. Viscous heating can pasteurize fecal sludge by creating a high shear field in the annular gap between a stationary, ...
Child feces disposal practice and associated factors: a dilemma in Tigray, northern Ethiopia
Safe disposal of children's feces is as essential as the safe disposal of adults' feces. However, there is widespread belief that feces of infants and young children are not harmful. This study ...
The time–temperature relationship for the inactivation of Ascaris eggs
A time–temperature plot presenting the inactivation of Ascaris eggs is expanded with additional literature data. The information is of value to designers and operators of sanitation equipment who ...
Exposure to sewage from on-site sanitation and child health: a spatial analysis of linkages and externalities in peri-urban Bolivia
Exposure to fecal contamination is a leading cause of childhood infectious diseases in low- and middle-income countries. Low-quality sanitation infrastructure and inadequate maintenance can make ...
The sanitation and hygiene targets of the sustainable development goals: scope and challenges
The sanitation target of the Sustainable Development Goals is that everyone should have a ‘safely-managed’ sanitation facility by 2030 and that open defecation be eliminated. The scale of this ...
Constraints on foreign aid effectiveness in the water, sanitation, and hygiene (WaSH) sector
Numerous studies have sought to empirically test the effectiveness of foreign aid as a tool for international development, with often inconsistent or contradictory results. New sources of ...
Sanitation and water supply in schools and girls' educational progression in Zambia
There is much anecdotal evidence related to the importance of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in schools for girls' educational progression, yet a lack of comprehensive quantitative studies on ...
Up-scaling sanitation provision using mixed design methodologies and failure risk assessment: a case study of Marikuppam, India
Simplified sewerage provides an improved alternative to single user on-site options in peri-urban areas in India, and contributes to the aim of reducing the need for human handling of waste (manual ...
Degradation rate of anaerobically digested sewage sludge in soil
The objective of this study was to monitor the degradation and obtain the mineralization fraction of anaerobically digested sludge, also known as digestate, under field conditions, when applied to ...
