Content - Summary

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. The lightweight toilet can be carried and used at a convenient place and is also suitable in cases of emergency, like flooded areas. The toilet will be used by one family or household.

Summary in German:
Insgesamt 6 Monate lebte ich in Bangladesch und arbeitete als Industrie
Designerin an neuen Technologien zur Verbesserung der Sanitärsituation.
Am 15. August 2010 begann meine Tätigkeit in Dhaka, der Hauptstadt des
Landes. In den folgenden Monaten hatte ich die Möglichkeit in eine Vielzahl von Projekten involviert zu sein, eng mit der Bevölkerung zusammen zu arbeiten, das Land zu bereisen, die Kultur, sowie die Probleme kennen zu lernen.

An English presentation about this concept is available here in the SuSanA library:
