Re: FINISH Mondial Sanitation Hackathon 2023-24 - Hashtag Percapita

Delighted to share the news !! 

Hashtag PerCapita  has won the first prize in the  FINISH Mondial  Sanitation Hackathon 2023-24 event for the theme on 'Innovation in Greywater Recycling for Small-scale Agriculture'.

The system presented by  Hashtag PerCapita  is called 'Humus Bio-reactor' treatment system. Due to its modular implementation approach, the Humus Bio-reactor system can be easily integrated into any existing building where greywater is disposed into open. In case of a building with an existing Onsite Sanitation System’s (OSS) and effluent flowing into open drain, the effluent can be diverted into ‘Humus Bio-Reactor’. Since the implementation does not involve a lot of civil construction, the treatment system is scalable and faster to implement.

Re: Seeking support for the "Popular vote price" for the 4th edition of the SanTech Challenge - Hackathon 2024; 22nd March 10 am GMT

Hello everyone.

I'm YMELE SAAPI Sidesse Sonia, a PhD student at the 2iE institute in Burkina Faso. I'm working on an earthworm-based greywater treatment system for agricultural reuse. This year, I'm taking part in the 4th edition of the SanTech Challenge - Hackathon 2024, which rewards innovative projects in the field of greywater treatment.

Of the 77 projects submitted from 28 countries, my project, Worms for a Sustainable World (WSW), was shortlisted in the top 8. I am therefore one of the 8 finalists.

The final ceremony will take place tomorrow on Friday March 22, 2024 (World Water Day) from 10 a.m. GMT online. You'll have the opportunity to vote for my project for the People's Choice Award by taking part in the ceremony. I invite you to register to take part in the ceremony via the link: https://events.teams.microsoft.com/event/91ab46ed-5af1-48dc-b442-7d6fe06c19c8@d6cc620b-5805-4e06-960c-07a7fb8e987f

Register now to avoid saturation tomorrow

Thank you very much for your support 🙏🏾.

Sanitation Hackathon 4 - grey water

Calling All Innovators: JoinFINISH Mondial’s 4th Sanitation Technology Hackathon!

Harness your creativity and expertise to develop groundbreaking technologies for a sustainable future. Our fourth annual Hackathon is here, and this time we’re tackling the challenges of greywater recycling for small-scale agriculture. Greywater, which typically includes wastewater from sinks, showers, laundry, and baths, can be a valuable resource when properly treated and repurposed for irrigation,
reducing water wastage and the need for freshwater in agriculture.

This Hackathon 4 will entail four focus areas:
1) Grey Water Treatment Technologies, 
2) Smart Irrigation Systems,
3) Sensor and Monitoring Solutions, and
4) Community Engagement and Education. 

Event Details:


Theme:
 Innovation in Greywater Recycling for Sustainable Agriculture and Kitchen Gardening.

Last Date to apply:
 28 February, 2024 

Winners’ announcement:
 22 March, 2024
