A Better ToiletFor A Cleaner World
“Duke University, RTI International Partner on Improved Global Sanitation”
Huge news for our project as Duke University announces it’s new partnership with RTI International and moves forward into Phase 3!
From the news release:
“Building off two grants… from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Duke University and its partners hope to become an international hub for studying practical, scalable solutions to the waste treatment and sanitation problem.”
“The Gates Foundation recently awarded… phase three funding of the Reinvent the Toilet project led by Duke with partners at RTI International, Colorado State University and several other evolving partnerships. The effort — led by Brian R. Stoner, a Duke-RTI scholar who is joining Duke electrical and computer engineering (ECE) full-time in October, and ECE professor Jeff Glass — is developing an off-grid energy neutral sanitation system currently being tested in India.”
“As part of phase three, the researchers will continue their prototype testing in India and will expand to South Africa by installing a toilet prototype in a township outside of Durban in collaboration with partners there.”
