Funded by the Army Research Office, the first part of this project develops human-composting latrine technology, optimized for local climate, that provides complete disinfection of parasites and a safe compost for local use or sale. The second portion of the project develops sustainable and implementable safe water technology to provide both chemically- and biologically-safe water for inhabitants with severely- or moderately-impaired water using ceramic filtration.
