IWMI Resources Recovery and Reuse - From research to uptake

  1. 1. www.iwmi.org Water for a food-secure world Johannes Paul, PhD Researcher – Integrated Waste Management IWMI Headquarter – Colombo, Sri Lanka IWMI – Resources Recovery and Reuse From research to uptake Brief on the ongoing BMZ funded project ‘Research and capacity building for inter-sectorial private sector engagement for soil rehabilitation’
  2. 2. WLE RRR Flagship  IWMI Research division Three activity clusters/subthemes 1. Business opportunities for RRR (e.g. business model development, feasibility studies, piloting PPP, testing recovered resources, etc.) 2. Safe wastewater use: risk assessment, risk mitigation, economics, behavior change; with WHO, FAO, UNU, UNEP. 3. Challenges of urbanization for water and land management in urban and peri-urban areas (e.g. GlobE - UrbanFood+ ) The new BMZ project is mapped under subtheme 1.
  3. 3. www.iwmi.org Water for a food-secure world Subtheme 1 - What we did so far: Analyzing and developing RRR business solutions • 150+ business cases screened • 60 cases with in-depth analysis • 22 business models developed • Feasibility studies in 10 cities
  4. 4. www.iwmi.org Water for a food-secure world RRR Business model catalog in work
  5. 5. Special focus area: Fecal Sludge Management (FSM) Comparison of 18 additional Business Models
  6. 6. www.iwmi.org Water for a food-secure world FSM cases as input (RRR report series in print)
  7. 7. www.iwmi.org Water for a food-secure world Previous research by IWMI Research focus in Ghana from 2000 to date (95 % onsite sanitation); extended to India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka in 2011 – Direct application of urine to soil – Land application of FS – Extended storage and drying of FS – Composting of Feces – Co-composting of FS and solid waste – Fortification (blending) of fecal compost with fertilizer – Agronomic trials (crop and soil response, safety)
  8. 8. www.iwmi.org Water for a food-secure world visibility line
  9. 9. www.iwmi.org Water for a food-secure world Circular Economy Switch from Linear supply flows to Agriculture: decreasing organic matter, soil deterioration, decreasing yields, increasing use of chemical fertilizer Solid waste management: predominating waste disposal, lack of waste treatment options, low quality of recycling products Sanitation: Lack of central sewerage systems, scattered on-site sanitation systems, uncontrolled septage collection, lack of treatment facilities, uncontrolled disposal of FS from tank cleaning Main challenges linking inter-sectorial challenges and capacity building
  10. 10. www.iwmi.org Water for a food-secure world Framework of research project Goal: Increased business thinking and private sector engagement in RRR to enhance soil health and resilient ecosystem services by returning organic carbon and nutrients to agricultural used soils in low-income countries. Purpose: To develop curricula for innovative RRR technologies and investment models that transfer organic waste into organic fertilizer for different soils, crops and climates in South Asia. Countries involved: Sri Lanka; additionally to facilitate outreach and investments India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Laos and Myanmar Target group: Young entrepreneurs, future leaders, practioners Beneficiaries: Farmers provided with GAP and natural fertilizers
  11. 11. www.iwmi.org Water for a food-secure world Main envisioned outcomes Outcome 1: Technical guidelines for co- composting and producing safe fecal sludge- based fertilizer pellets (IWMI, Wayamba) Outcome 2: Guidelines and Farmers handbook on safe pellet application (Bochum & Wayamba) Outcome 3: Country investment briefs, policy recommendations (ZEF Bonn) Outcome 4: Curricula for students and RRR practioners (University Cambridge) 1: Technical research Main field of activities 2: Verification of soil & crop responses; fertilizer value 3: Investment climate analysis 4: Curricula development Framework of research project Goal: Increased business thinking and private sector engagement in RRR to enhance soil health and resilient ecosystem services in peri-urban areas by returning organic carbon and nutrients to agricultural used soils in low-income countries.
  12. 12. www.iwmi.org Water for a food-secure world Outcome 1: Technical research (co-composting, pellets) • FS treatment, e.g. drying beds • Verification of suited input materials • Co-composting (process, quality) • Pelletization (grinding, binding, enriching) • clarification fertilizer properties (NPK, pathogens, organic matter, size, density, pellet strength etc) • Formulation of production guidelines FS SW FS
  13. 13. www.iwmi.org Water for a food-secure world • Testing of various fertilizer mixtures (fertilizer quality, application properties) • Testing of various crops (short-, medium, longterm) • Open field and greenhouse trials • Trials for various weather/climate conditions • Farmers perception surveys including gender aspects • Formulation of application guidelines Outcome 2: Verification of fertilizer value and safe application
  14. 14. www.iwmi.org Water for a food-secure world • Expert consultations (chamber of commerce, donor and sector organizations, farmer associations) • Multi-criteria analysis (regulatory framework, legal, finance, gender, governance RRR market • Data synthesis & country briefs Outcome 3: Investment climate analysis Outcome 4: Curriculum development • Development of syllabi and curricula • Selection of suited cases and business models • Use of research outcomes from activities 1-3 • Testing of curricula & course institutionalization
