According to the World Health Organization (WHO), poor sanitation is believed to be the main cause in over 30% of 842 000 deaths in low- and middle-income countries as a result of inadequate water, sanitation, and hygiene each year. Sanitation treatment units have the potential to save lives and improve the health of millions of people around the world.

To this end, a new committee, ISO/PC 318 (community scale resource oriented sanitation treatment systems), has just been formed, and work is underway to develop IWA 28, Faecal sludge treatment unitsEnergy independent, prefabricated, community-scale resource-recovery units–Safety and performance. It will help to facilitate the commercialization and expansion of such treatment units into the market, making them safer and more accessible to those who need them.
