|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.

Content Guidelines: Use these links below to guide you in populating your website. A few points to consider:
- Be aware of any information that you or your sponsor might not want publicly available: confidential information, personal phone numbers, photos, etc. You can use the private directory for this information, and it will be available only to those users with Guest access to your site. Remember that once you post something online, it's nearly impossible to remove it entirely!
- 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.
