Tribecraft reengineered the technology.
The toilet has been developed by Eawag — the aquatic research institute — and designed by EOOS Design Studio for locations lacking a water infrastructure as part of the "Reinvent the toilet challenge" funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Urine and feces are separated and later recovered, the process water hygienically treated. Our job was to re-engineer the technology: A new hydraulic concept, as well as integration of micro-controlled pumps, actuators and sensors ensure a robust energy and water balance. We supported production, installation and startup of the test series.
“The toilet has passed two successful field tests in Uganda and in Kenya”
