Solving the world’s sanitation crisis is a complicated problem that requires expertise from a huge range of disciplines. Here is a paper that I have collaborated on recently that illustrate this in journal “Fuel” and describes experiments to combust human waste. The findings will assist in the development of technologies to thermally process human waste,...

With every flush, this toilet creates water and electric power for those who need it most. The “Nano Membrane Toilet,” developed by a group at Britain’s Cranfield University, received a grant during the second round of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Reinvent the Toilet Challenge. This self-contained waterless commode doesn’t require power, and with...
