Floating Sustainable Sanitation Unit
In the beginning of 2015 Urban Wetlands has development the FSSU concept as part of the answer on one of the world biggest sanitation problems in developing countries where flood risk is present. Our main challenge is the adaptation of technologies to local conditions. This requires a proper balance between cost-effectiveness, scalability and durability.
The FSSU (floating sustainable sanitation unit) is a full off-grid solution for domestic sanitation problems. The system consist of a floating body, a special develop construct wetland and technical components like pumps, pump controls and pipes. The main characteristics of the FSSU is a vertical flow construct wetland (VFCW) and a floating body.
