The term DT-technology was introduced at the DRY TOILET 2003 conference. It was noted that when discussing dry toilets or sanitation issues often only the technical aspects are considered. In order to understand the larger picture DT-technology can be defined to include the following aspects:

  1. Dry Toilets
  2. Nutrient re-cycling
  3. Water saving
  4. Water protection
  5. Hygiene. Promotion of better health through personal and environmental hygiene, which can be achieved by controlled management of toilet waste and education.
  6. Equality. Women's and children's needs and rights are paid attention to in designing sanitation. Equality also means that no minority group of people is submitted solely to handling of human waste.
  7. Good management of the whole chain from the dry toilet to the re-inducement of nutrients in the fields.
