A Better ToiletFor A Cleaner World
“RTI International, Duke Launch Beta-Toilet Prototype in India that processes, recycles and disinfects waste”
RTI International (an independent nonprofit research institute that this very project functions under) recently put up their own press release on the recent launch of our beta-toilet prototype in India.
“We have a great team of USA and India staff and partners that has enabled us to test, revise and innovate new waste processing solutions,” said Myles Elledge, senior director of international development policy and planning at RTI. “This new beta prototype version installed at our CEPT University test facility is an important step in our product development journey.”
The new sanitation system was installed at the CEPT University in Ahmedabad, where the original prototype has been collecting data for more than a year. Researchers from all sides hope the new beta version will provide even more data and bring them closer to realizing their goal of providing a self-sufficient sanitation system that people will want to use.
RTI is partnered with Duke University, Colorado State University, NASA’s Ames Research Center and the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory to develop the prototype of this safe, sanitary and affordable waste treatment system.
