|Project Summary||Project Information|
An indoor dry toilet is a device that doesn’t utilize running water but instead collects waste for manual removal. The seat for this toilet allows for different wastes to be separated and removed more easily. This device should be able to be used by any person no matter their build and should be cost-effective. The current model is usable but some waste can miss the diverters and may not be contained. The plastic seats are also not very cost-effective and takes longer to construct. This device has been in development since 2005 but was put on hold because of the earthquake in 2010.
The end goals of this project is to design and manufacture a full seat that is ergonomically sufficient for all users while also being aesthetically pleasing, and easily movable by a single person. It must also be less expensive than what it is currently while also being 100% usable. The product should be manufactured locally and the management of urinal waste should be easier and possibly customizable in terms of collection methods.

Content Guidelines: Use these links below to guide you in populating your website. A few points to consider:
- Be aware of any information that your sponsor might not want publicly available. You can use the directory for this information, and it will be available only to those users with Guest access to your site.
- Do not post any files on your site that are not yours, unless you are certain that they are in the public domain or you have received permission to post them. Examples of files that you should avoid posting are copies of published papers, standards documents, textbook chapters/excerpts, or copyrighted images. If you have received a .pdf of a paper through Interlibrary Loan, or purchased an ASTM or ISO standard, you may post it in the private directory, where only your team and guide will have access to it.
- If you are including contact information for people that would otherwise not be publicly available, make sure you have their permission. For example, your faculty advisor's email address and office phone number are already publicly available on the KGCOE website, and is fine to post. However, if he or she has provided a cell phone number to the team, that is most likely not public information and should not be posted without explicit permission.
- Comment out this text once you've read it.
