Diversion for safe sanitation: Flushable urine-diverting dry toilet with on-site wash water recycling embedded in a concept of transport logistics and treatment

The squatting “diversion toilet” includes integrated wash water recovery for hand washing and toilet cleaning. It separates undiluted urine, dry feces and wash water. The used water passes ultrafiltration and is recycled for the same purposes.

The Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (Eawag) and industrial design company EOOS develop a urine-diverting dry toilet with the additional feature of an integrated wash water recovery that allows for the comfort of hand washing and toilet cleaning. The squatting “diversion toilet” pan separates three streams: undiluted …
