Drytoilets as part of European water and wastewater management
The aim of the project which started in the beginning of 2007 is to promote drytoilet technology in Europe. The target regions are Portugal, Baltian region and Finland. In practice the project is establishing relations to the target countries, to build drytoilets and educate people about the use of drytoilets. The material that is used in the project was gathered during a previous project “Drytoilets to Europe”. Now the experiences of the users of drytoilets can be utilized to adopt drytoilet culture to the target countries.

As a part of the project, The Global Dry toilet Club published a new Finnish dry toilets brochure. It presents the Finnish dry toilet manufacturers and their products. The brochure was published in the beginning of March 2007. You can find the brochure also in the internet. Finnish dry toilets brochure (pdf, size 1,7 Mb).

The immediate targets regarding the countries involved:

  1. In Finland to produce experiences and literal information on functionality of in-house-drytoilets and especially to inform people of the gathered information

  2. In Estonia and Latvia to collect experiences on the functionality of Finnish drytoilets and to inform people about the Finnish drytoilet technology through demonstration sites.

  3. In Portugal and Lithuania to learn about the legislation concerning the use of drytoilets and the ways to start co-operating to increase the level of knowledge on drytoilet technology.
