Re: Blue Diversion AUTARKY - A self-sustaining toilet off the grid (EAWAG, Switzerland)

Hi Chris,

without knowing more of your house and concept I would suggest a solar water pump (12 V) without any battery. If the tank on the second floor ist big enough the pump might work during the sunshine and remain lazy the other times... Watch out for the pressure needed.... Investment should be less than 50 Dollars.

Good luck,

Heiner

Re: Blue Diversion AUTARKY - A self-sustaining toilet off the grid (EAWAG, Switzerland)

Hi Eva:
I have been studying the subject very carefully. 
It is probably a good choice to use it as the public toilets in our big cities and villages.
We are working with some parties to design public toilets for Shen Zhen  with a population of  30 million people. The road is very wide and the metro is very modern without enough toilets. It is very embarrassing for me to take the metro sometime.
The blue diversion Autarky looks very nice and compact. My question is how you deal with the bad smell while the solid waste is being burnt.
FIY. I remember that the product was exhibited in 2008 Toilet Summit in Macao
It is a good timing to market the subject in China.
Please contact me for the  possible business opportunities in China.
best wishes
Scott
