Egerton University professors and students worked together with Nakuru County Sanitation Programme staff during a three-day write-shop to write scientific and popular publications. These publications are intended to be published in scientific journals, sector magazines and other fora to spur interest and encourage investment in continued development of human waste products.
The first series of articles focuses on bio-fertilisers and includes results of analysed data from extensive field trials between 2015-2016 using cabbage, maize and potatoes as test crops. Products tested include: Struvite, (vermi-)compost, dried sludge and bio-char.
The second series of articles on biomass fuels includes results from the product research, production process design and pilot studies conducted for carbonised briquettes and fuel-pellets.
