Considero que este curso es completo, me ha dado la oportunidad de adquirir nuevos conocimientos en la gestión de los lodos fecales, entender las tecnologias para su tratamiento y disposición final y principalmente me ha abierto las puertas para tener acceso a información libre de investigaciones y paginas web dedicadas a esta area.
Gracias por compartirlo de forma abierta y gratuita .

This course provides with a basic overview of various steps involved with faecal Sludge collection, transport and treatment. It also gives information on alternative uses of faecal sludge such as nutrient and energy recovery. A very good learning course for individuals who are concerned with faecal waste treatment. I personally learned a lot by taking this course.

I learn more from this course such as how mange project, how I understood key concepts of project, kind of the wastes, how treated them and how can I benefitfrom then such as use them as composetion. Finally, Thank very much to all instructors or anyone contributes in preparing this course to content all these information that really gain more to background

Unplanted sludge drying beds are shallow filters filled with sand and gravel with an under-drain at
the bottom to collect leachate. Sludge is discharged onto the surface for dewatering (Figure 7.1). The
drying process in a drying bed is based on drainage of liquid through the sand and gravel to the bottom
of the bed, and evaporation of water from the surface of the sludge to the air. The design as well as the
operation of the drying bed is fairly straightforward, provided the sludge loading rate is well selected
and the inlet points for depositing the sludge onto the bed are properly designed. Depending on the
faecal sludge (FS) characteristics, a variable fraction of approximately 50-80% of the sludge volume
drains off as a liquid (or leachate), which needs to be collected and treated prior to discharge (Tilley
et al., 2014). After reaching the desired dryness, the sludge is removed from the bed manually or
mechanically. Further processing for stabilization and pathogen reduction may be required depending
on the intended end-use option. When considering the installation of a drying bed, the ease of operation
and low cost needs to be considered against the relatively large footprint and odor potential.
