Reade, A. (2016)

What Potential is there for Container Based Sanitation and the Social Enterprise in Urban Emergencies?

Traditional alternatives have included: lined pit latrines, raised latrines and urine diverting dry toilets (UDDTs).

Analysis of exposure pathways and measures to mitigate the emanating risk of sanitation options in coastal areas of islands in the south pacific
Master thesis

Rural coastal areas of islands in the South Pacific are often characterized by shallow groundwater and are prone to floods. The prevalent pit-based sanitation (i.e. ‘bush’, Dry, and Pour-Flush Toilets) may cause microbiological and chemical groundwater contamination. Floods involve the risk of spreading pathogens in the environment and may cause toilets to be inoperable. Composting Toilets …

These circumstances make the selection of a safe, comfortable and environmentally friendly waterless toilet a nice …
