Content - Summary

This library entry contains background documents for a grant that Chris Buckley is leading and which is funded by the WSH Program of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation under the Reinvent the Toilet Challenge (RTTC). The old Project title was "Data and design: mineralization of sanitation wastes from community ablution blocks".

Further information is available on the discussion forum (see link below).

The goal of this project is to design, prototype, and evaluate a toilet system that can safely dispose of pollutants and recover valuable materials such as water and carbon dioxide from urine in community bathroom blocks.

The following posters are available for download below:
- Toilet system overview
- Faeces and solids processing
- Urine processing
- Pre-fabricated ablution blocks
- Sanitation field work opportunities
- Properties of faecal sludge
- Pit scanner

There are also short Information sheets on:
- Urine as a fertiliser
- CAB monitoring (community ablution blocks)
- Mechanical properties of faecal sludge

Two presentations:
- Presentation about the project at the fair in Seattle in August 2012
- Mechanical properties of faecal sludge
