Characteristics of faecal sludge biochar and its impact on the growth and fruit yield of tomato (Solanum Lycopersicum L.): PRESENTATION ONLY

Larissa Nicholas, Impact and Engagement Officer – Swansea University


Faecal sludge
• Faecal sludge differs from sewage sludge in that it has not passed through a sewered sanitation system.
• Approximately 2.1 – 2.6 billion people depend on onsite sanitation facilities (UNICEF & WHO, 2017) that generate vast quantities of
untreated faecal sludge each day.
• In developing countries, the poor management of faecal sludge (FS) collected from onsite sanitation facilities has led to negative public
and environmental health outcomes.
• Long term and more sustainable solutions to deal with faecal sludge that don’t involve expensive, water intensive and energy intensive
sewer systems are needed.
