SANITECH is a pre-fea­si­bil­ity tech­nol­ogy-choice de­ci­sion-support tool. It has been val­i­dated in Waran­gal and through Pro­ject Tuy­mai. It is a part of the FSM Tool­box (www.fsm­tool­box. com), which is a one-stop knowl­edge and re­source plat­form for Fe­cal Sludge Man­age­ment projects, de­vel­oped by the Asian In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy, CEPT Univer­sity and CSTEP.

Users can

• View the san­i­ta­tion sit­u­a­tion in a city through a GIS-enabled in­ter­ac­tive user in­ter­face

• As­sess var­i­ous tech­nol­ogy op­tions in san­i­ta­tion in spe­cific con­texts

• Com­pare a port­fo­lio of con­text-ap­pro­pri­ate tech­nol­ogy choices across the san­i­ta­tion value chain

• De­sign con­text-ap­pro­pri­ate sys­tems from a repos­i­tory of tech­nol­ogy op­tions

• Take var­i­ous ac­tions and ex­am­ine their im­pact on the per­for­mance of spe­cific in­di­ca­tors

• Build and com­pare sce­nar­ios on de­ci­sion-support in­di­ca­tors.

Fe­cal Sludge Man­age­ment (FSM) is a dirty busi­ness! But, this busi­ness is now be­com­ing a pri­or­ity agenda for na­tional and lo­cal govern­ments, in­vestors and com­mu­ni­ties. While in­vest­ments are flow­ing for FSM projects, chal­lenges re­main for ini­ti­at­ing and im­ple­ment­ing suc­cess­fully planned and ex­e­cuted projects. Be­hind the short­com­ings lie bot­tle­necks like knowl­edge gaps, pro­ce­dures, pro­fes­sion­als and most es­sen­tially, tools for a suc­cess­ful de­sign and im­ple­men­ta­tion. So, rely on our prin­ci­pal A-Z source for plan­ning and ex­e­cu­tion of FSM-smart projects.

FSM Tool­box Train­ing

CSTEP con­ducts ca­pac­ity build­ing ac­tiv­i­ties to train users in ef­fec­tively ap­ply­ing the AIT FSM Tool­box for their projects. A brief work­shop can be con­ducted for users, ei­ther in per­son or through Skype. CSTEP can also pro­vide hand­hold­ing support if and when needed.

Tech­nol­ogy Op­tions for the San­i­ta­tion Value Chain: A com­pre­hen­sive com­pen­dium of san­i­ta­tion tech­nolo­gies, across the san­i­ta­tion value chain, which pro­vides read­ers in­for­ma­tion on the fea­tures, de­sign, op­er­a­tion, cost, etc. of these tech­nolo­gies.

San­i­ta­tion Tool Com­pen­dium: A com­pen­dium of san­i­ta­tion tools which aims to list all ac­ces­si­ble and rel­e­vant tools in the san­i­ta­tion sec­tor, with fo­cus on tools that take FSM into con­sid­er­a­tion. Fact­sheets, which cover the ob­jec­tives, de­scrip­tions, ad­van­tages, lim­i­ta­tions and de­tails of the tool, have been de­vel­oped for each of these tools.
