Though Bangladesh has made great strides in achieving overall sanitation, it has a long way to go to accomplish full hygienic sanitation coverage. The SanMark CITY project was designed to explore the critical gap that exists in introducing, adapting, and sustaining affordable on-site sanitation technologies on a large scale. The potentiality for slums in urban Bangladesh of four on-site composting toilet technologies was explored under SanMark CITY. These are: Tiger Toilet, Sun-Mar, Enbiolet, a

The entire sanitation interventions in Bangladesh have been based on on-site sanitation systems (e.g. pit latrines and septic tanks), without much attention to the management of fecal sludge that accumulate in pits and septic tanks. Lack of proper management of wastewater and fecal sludge is causing severe environmental pollution and health problems, which is endangering the sustainability of on-site sanitation services.There appears to be limited choice regarding types of on-site sanitation facilities, particularly in slums and low-income communities. In crowded communities, sufficient space is not available for re-sitting of pit latrines when the pits fill up. In the absence of organized fecal sludge management (FSM) services, pit contents are often drained to low-lying areas or pit emptying is carried out in unhygienic manner, posing significant risks to environment and public health.

In the backdrop of these circumstances,the “Sanitation Marketing for Urban Onsite Sanitation in Bangladesh”, or “SanMark-CITY” project aims toexplore the potential of four toilet technologies to overcome some of the challenges faced in delivering a sustainable sanitation solution. The toilet technologies include: (a) Tiger Toilet; (b) Enbiolet; (c) Biofil Toilet System; and (d) Sun-Mar Composting Toilet.
