Re: Sanitary Pad burner/incinierator design

Hi Juergen

Thanks for all the links and materials - especially the Tamil Nadu one , which i did not find previously (..?...). That was exactly what i was looking for!

Re: Sanitary Pad burner/incinierator design

Ina,

probably the brick-built solution is cheaper than the metal version.

The pictured incinerator first reminded me of the re:char biochar kiln:

www.re-char.com/buy/
www.fastcompany.com/1805296/jason-arambu...echar-biochar-africa

..which sells for USD 290 in the US, but is also locally made in Kenya in a trial for 25-30 USD. They also just received a grant from Gates Foundation and I would love to see this re:char kiln combined with JaniPads (www.janipad.com/) and/or MakaPads (www.irinnews.org/report.aspx?reportid=88359) to keep it organic and plastic-free.

Else, I believe that most of these locally made normal incinerators in Africa just aren't well documented by local entrepreneurs (due to IPRs, manpower, etc.), which is why most of the stuff we can find online is from Asia or the US.

Kenya:
From my "bible", The Wilderness Guardian :-)

And then this case study from UNICEF in Tamil Nadu:

(with a contact)


Other recommended resources for documented low-cost, low-tech approaches:
www.cd3wd.com/cd3wd_40/cd3wd/index.htm
www.instructables.com
practicalaction.org/browse-and-download-answers

Uhm, I believe you already checked all of these and also googled for it.
The 2nd pic you posted is from Gachoire Girl's High School in Kagwe, Kenya. Maybe Christian R. can organize a technical drawing of that incinerator?

Sanitary Pad burner/incinierator design

Dear all!

i am looking for design examples for simple low cost sanitary napkin incinerators/burners, preferable for schools or for public toilets.

such as in this picture

or here:



I am also looking forward if anyone can share some more practical experiences as well, either in this forum or directly by email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


WSSCC is planning to compile a data file on MHM. And while screening companies for sanitary pads vendor and incinerators (mostly based in India), i tend to prefer the low cost option i because schools can eventually built it themselves.
