A Better ToiletFor A Cleaner World
Prototype Update, 26 Feb 2017
Solids System Update:
This video shows RTI International’s Gates Foundation funded toilet running a full-loop on the solid processing side for one of the first times.
The cycle, shown below in the diagram, processes human feces into a burnable material using the heat created by burning an earlier processed batch of feces. Motors, actuators, a whole lot of stainless steel (amongst other materials), Programmable Logic Control and LabVIEW, along with a lot of clever engineering and skilled fabrication have brought the system to a point where the concept has now been more than proven!
