“This futuristic toilet could save lives – and it’s closer than you think”

Our project recently got a great feature article in The News & Observer. It spanned the history of the project, the global challenges we are trying to solve, as well as a particular focus on our TOWR system collaboration with partners US Army Natick.

Newly Published Paper from our Liquids Team!

Congratulations to our Liquids Team on their recent research report published on RTI International’s site!

Solids System Update: TOWR Trailer Unit Opens to Users on RTI Campus

North Carolina, United States

Early in July, the Toilet with Onsite Waste Remediation (TOWR) trailer, a research endeavor jointly funded by US Army Natick and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, opened to the public for use. Users can visit the comfortable, temperature controlled Western style toilet, make “donations” and anonymously note their comments if they’d like.
