This Terra Preta Sanitation literature review introduces the current state of the art of this dry sanitation system. The text will enable you to dive deeper into the topic and processes that entail this dry sanitation solution. These are Lactic acid fermentation and Vermicomposting by earth worms. Case studies in India, Phillipines and Ethiopia, where TPS systems have been implemented are also introduced, along with their most significant research outcomes.
