Goal(s): The goal of this project is to strategically tackle the critical technological roadblock of needed compressed air for “idealized sanitation solutions”.
1- Determine the feasibility of creating a developing world appropriate “liquid ring type compressor/aerator”.
2- Determine whether a liquid ring type compressor can be created such that it can operate in the horizontal plain instead of the conventional vertical plain.
3- Design the resulting compressor/aerator such that it is “designed for manufacturing” and “tool-able” using low cost injection molding techniques to help insure global access.
4- Redefine “appropriate technology” and “sustainability” as something that not only works, but lasts.
