Trainer materials for Module 5: Wastewater – Exploring the options

Module 5  shows how the separate collection, treatment and reuse of different wastewater streams can recycle resources and improve treatment performance. It also demonstrates the positive impacts that this can achieve, particularly for water security, urban agriculture, environmental protection and energy consumption. In Module 5 decentralised options that can replace or complement conventional wastewater management infrastructure are also introduced.
