A Better ToiletFor A Cleaner World
“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.
The idea of a germ-free toilet that can go anywhere is generating interest beyond the international aid network. RTI has begun testing a heavy-duty version of its sustainable toilet for military use. The testing is taking place at RTI’s headquarters in Research Triangle Park. The next step – installing the facility for testing at a military base – is under discussion and could happen as early as next year. The U.S. Army is interested in developing a mobile self-contained toilet that doesn’t depend on tanker trucks hauling out human waste in dangerous locations around the world.
With lots of quotes and input from our very own team, it’s a great update on the current state of our project and what our entire team has been working on recently. Much thanks to The N&O for this great piece.
