Toilet for the urban poor in Bangladesh (moSan - mobile sanitation)
Non-infrastructure based dry-separation toilet for the urban poor in Bangladesh
GIZ Bangladesh and the German industrial designer Mona Mijthab developed a non-infractructure-based separation dry toilet for the urban poor in Bangladesh.
The toilet is part of a sustainable sanitation system with collectors, transport, human waste treatment and reuse as compost fertiliser or biogas. No water or chemicals are required. A tight lid and dry covering material avoids smell. Every day the full inner buckets are emptied. The lightweight toilet can be carried and used at a convenient place, e.g. inside the private dwelling and is also suitable in cases of emergency, like flooded areas. The toilet will be used by one family or household.
