Re: Unit Operations Approach for Rapid Disinfection of Human Waste (University of Toronto, USA and Bangladesh)

Dear Steve

I wonder if you have any pictures or results to share on your first prototype?
You also stated that end date of the project is 31st of January (see above): is this project now over or any plans to continue?

Hi Dorothy,
Thanks again for Following Up - Our project was extended until March 31st. We will be presenting it along with the other RTTC members this March in Delhi. I'll feel more comfortable sharing the pictures and videos of the completed project then.

Thanks for checking in.

Cheers,

Steve

Re: Sanitation NoW! RTTC Round One Phase Three

The University of Toronto and its partners at the University of Western Ontario and the University of Queensland are excited to announce that we have been actively working on the third phase of our Reinvent the Toilet Challenge.

We are building on all the exciting progress we made in Phase 2 to make a smaller, more efficient, and cheaper version of our prototype. The technology will not differ much from our Phase 2 prototype. For a very excellent summary of our technology please watch our animated video.

Re: Sanitation NoW - Unit Operations Approach for Rapid Disinfection of Human Waste (University of Toronto, Canada)

Hi Everyone,
My apologies for not posting an update sooner. We are fevershily working under the third phase of our RTTC grant. Please listen to Prof. Yu-Ling Cheng's high level presentation at FSM3 in March of this year for a very excellent overview of where we are at.

The exact starting point is here:


Or go to 48m21s here:



We have an integrated prototype that is operational in our lab. We will be testing it using donated human samples this summer. I've attached a photo of our phase 2 prototype. The key differences of phase 2 vs phase 3 is that our phase 3 prototype will be much smaller and will be able to operate without a dedicated daily operator. No photos of our phase 3 prototype yet but will update when we can.

Thanks,

Steve
