Solid System Update

In the video below, our very own Stef Teleski takes us on walk through of the current system setup that we have, to deal with solid waste.

In it, she covers the system as a whole, the addition of springs to the scraper on the heat plate, as well recent modifications that have made our solid waste treatment more efficient.

Have a look:

An Important Milestone For Our Project Has Been Reached!

One of the core responsibilities of RTI’s system, now under development, is to separate liquid waste from solid waste. Once separated, the solid waste is then convectively dried and delivered to a combustion system. The waste heat from the combustion system is converted to electricity using thermoelectric modules which, in turn, power the entire toilet.

We are happy to announce the that our alpha system, currently housed on CEPT campus in Ahmedabad, has produced real dried poop pellets and successfully completed a full burn, incinerating them!

This is quite the milestone for our project and we couldn’t be happier for reaching it!
