All the winnners come with advanced and sophiscated systems and claim theie device can turn the waste into drinkingable water...
As for the toilet you mentioned , i think 300 USD is not cheap at all comparing with normal flush toielts.
I would be very please if you could tell me more infomation about it.
best wishes

On the question of toilet and system, a toilet is a system. If we think of a system as a time-varying configuration fo people, hardware and procedures organized to accomplish a function, as long as you can see a purpose or function to en entity, it is a system.
Re: Gates' toilets, as a GCE Awardee of the Gates Challenge, I want to note that not all of their supported systems (toilets) are hightech and expensive. The GSAP Microflush toilet, which the Gates Foundation supported is now a locally sourced locally made toilet. GSAP has trained local MAKERs in 18 countries around the world creating for them a small sustainable business while they help solve the menacing condition of sanitation in their communities. They typically sell the off-grid fly-and odor-free toilet for $300 of which $200 is for materials and $100 their profit. The toilet is harvested for its rich compost every 2-3 years.
I hope you will elaborate on your postings so that we can understand the points you are trying to make.
