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.
Congratulations to our Liquids Team on their recent research report published on RTI International’s site!
Titled “Development of an Electrochemical Process for Blackwater Disinfection in a Freestanding, Additive-Free Toilet”
Huge news for our project as Duke University announces it’s new partnership with RTI International and moves forward into Phase 3!
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.
Congratulations to our Liquids Team on their recent paper published in the Water and Environment Journal!
