Arborloo - Plastic Base
The objective of this project is to design an arborloo base that reduces the factors that block adoption by the Haitian people, i.e. it is low cost, plastic, portable, easily constructed, modern looking, and safe to use.
The current arborloo design is difficult to adopt in rural areas due to high cost and transportation difficulties. Furthermore, the time, skills, and tools required to construct the base are preventing widespread adoption.
The intended latrine base designs and prototypes should be consistent with the current arborloo design, while incorporating the use of plastics. The designs need to be portable, easy to assemble, and low cost. This project team will develop 3 to 4 concept designs, ultimately leading to 2 functional prototypes.
Final DesignsShown below are the two final designs, The Vacloo and The Deckloo, which were built and tested, and fulfilled the engineering requirements for the project.
