P20415: Compostable Bucket Liners

Home

Project Summary Project Information

The Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods (SOIL) organization has been working to provide solutions to citizens of Haiti who do not have access to clean and safe sanitation methods. Their toilet gives the user a similar experience to that of a Western toilet, but uses no water and is able to separate urine and fecal matter. The fecal matter is used for fertilizer, but the process of cleaning the buckets after use is very water-intensive and could contribute to the spread of diarrheal illnesses if not properly treated. The goal of this project is to develop a liner for the buckets that is compostable, made from local materials, can be manufactured by locals, and solves the issue of excessive water usage in the process of preparing the buckets’ return to service. The end result will be a prototype that meets most customer and engineering requirements outlined in the project readiness package and determined through supplementary interviews with the customer. In addition, all product data regarding the liner and manufacturing processes will be provided to SOIL.
