|Project Summary||Project Information|
Nearly sixty six percent of residents in urban Haiti
lack proper sanitation facilities. This issue leads
to the sharing of unsanitary public toilets.
Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihodds, or
"SOIL", is a non-profit social enterprise which
operates in urban Haiti that is working to eliminate
this problem. SOIL provides a service that supplys a
portable dry toilet as well as collecting the fecal
waste weekly. A prototype device of the toilet was
designed by teams in the past, but the design never
reached the manufacturing phase. Additionally,
further modifications must be made to the diverter
design to improve ergonomics.
The goals of this project are to improve the current design by making the product more comfortable, developing a manufacturing system and molds for the concrete base. The final prototype should be capable of being cheaply produced with local materials, portable, easy to install and clean, and be comfortable to use.
