The Gates Foundation challenged eight consortia worldwide to reinvent the toilet. The new toilet for developing countries has to be completely off the grid, not connected to sewerage systems, energy grid or water pipes. Therefore, it has to close the loops and clean its own water, produce its own energy etc.
Delft University of Technology proposes the plasma gasification of human waste, to produce energy out of human waste. Look at these videos to understand our technology, our human centered design and prototype tests, as presented for Bill Gates and the prince of Orange amongst hundreds of other experts at the Gates Foundation in Seattle, August 2012.
