We have several products ready for prototyping next semester. We plan to build a small biodigestor and test the improved thermal design. We will be using baked beans as a surrogate for latrine waste!
We will be talking to our partner in Beirut, Lebanon at the end of the month about testing our products there next summer. Stay tuned for more updates!
We are so excited! Our ME design team is finishing the first prototype to fabricate sanitary pads. This is entirely made by the team in our wood shop.
Our students are designing solar lights for latrines in refugee camps and they have a goal: 50 lights by the end of the semester. Help them meet their goal!
Your gift will pay for training manuals to make products sustainable.
Your gift will pay for parts for “minimal” latrine lighting increasing the safety of women and children
Your gift will pay for parts for sensors to monitor and deliver data on water usage and quality which will help ensure adequate and safe water supply
Your gift will pay for materials to test low-maintenance water filters.
Your gift will pay for materials for a prototype biodigestor which will improve the health and sanitation in refugee camps
Your gift will pay for materials for prototype sanitary pad press providing a means of on-site fabrication and a source of employment for women in refugee camps
Your gift will pay for a prototype of a press to reduce the water in latrine waste, thus decreasing the time for drying and reuse as fertilizer.
