Laboratory Training on Fecal Sludge & Wastewater Parameter Analysis

July 2 @ 9:00 am - July 5 @ 5:00 pm UTC+6

About the Training

This is a nomination only training.
In Bangladesh, a number of initiatives have been taken for implementing Fecal Sludge Management (FSM) with treatment facilities. Assessing the characteristics of Fecal Sludge (FS) are essential for design technologies, and monitoring the output quality of treatment system is important for environmental compliance. The analysis of fecal sludge is new to the country’s water and wastewater laboratories. In this regard, ITN-BUET, with the support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation project, has established a reference laboratory at Department of Civil Engineering, BUET to conduct the surveillance and monitoring of FSTPs, validate new innovative technologies and to render capacity-building services to other laboratories in the country through training events. ITN-BUET, in collaboration with Department of Civil Engineering, BUET will organize a hands laboratory training on fecal sludge & wastewater parameter analysis.


Learning Objective

By this training participants will

  • Get an overview on FSM, FS and its analyzing parameters.
  • Know health and safety guidelines for handling FS samples.
  • Learn and practice testing of analyzing parameters for fecal sludge and wastewater.

Training Outlines

  • FSM, FS and FSTPs
  • Sampling of FS, wastewater for analysis
  • On-site measurement parameters
  • Solid content parameters
  • Organic content parameters
  • Nutrient content parameters
  • QC/QA and laboratory safety

Participants’ Profile

Researchers/Scientists/ Instructor/Managers or Technicians in the University, Research Institutes, Govt., and Pvt. water/wastewater testing laboratory.


Training Modality

This is a hands-on training program blended with theory and practice. Eminent experts and experienced lab scientists from BUET will facilitate the course and guide participants using state-of-the-art reference laboratory equipment for analysis.
