Note:

We are currently seeking funding for field trials for our Urine Diverting Dry Toilet (UDDT)14 

We have autoCAD drawings, professional sketches a full size prototype in fibreglass and a 3D model (see photo). We have a mold maker and manufacturer on standby, ready to start once we have funding. We are currently based in Cambodia, and this is where the UDDT’s will be manufactured, but are willing to travel outside of Cambodia for field trials. Once we have funding the UDDT will be ready for field trials within 8 weeks.  However, preparation for field trials can start almost immediately. Subsequent orders will take less time to manufacture as we will have the molds ready. 

Potential investors are most welcome to come and visit us at our factory in Phnom Penh. 

Please contact me for more details hr@eco1solutions.com

PLANNING FOR EXCRETA DISPOSAL IN EMERGENCY SITUATIONS

WHO- planning for excreta disposal in emergencies

According to WHO, the pressure to assist people after a disaster often leads to action being taken before a proper plan has been implemented. Click on the link above to read the report from WHO – WEDC on Planning for Excreta Disposal in Emergencies. The mobility, transportability, storeability, hygienic human-waste containment & disposal of the human8ture® makes it the idea tool for an emergency or disaster situation. A pre-determined organized plan could be drawn up at NGO HQ then implemented on site using the  human8ture® system and dedicated composter. The same plan and system could apply for all NGOs, leading to a cohesive’, professional, hygienic  and effective plan of action for all disaster situations.
