To test and upgrade closed loop flush toilet systems in third world locations without adequate sanitation
This purpose of this grant is to extend the existing testing of the Kohler CLASS system and reconfigure one of the test units in Coimbatore, India. Extending the time period will allow for the test of the four of the units in closed loop mode (all water is recycled for flush water), reconfiguration of one of the units to a modified system that will be used in the next step of product development, and for comparison testing with new sets of electrodes from Yixing Entrustech .
Comparison testing will focus on the performance of the new electrodes (funded under a WSH grant) to the existing prototype electrodes made by Nanopac.
To test and upgrade closed loop flush toilet systems in third world locations without adequate sanitation, the ultimate goal of which is to improve, in a cost-effective manner, how human waste is handled and thereby improve public health
