P20414: Indoor Dry Toilet Base
/public/

Home

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.
