TEDxBerlin Noa Lerner:X-runner. Sanitation Social Business

Sun, 19Feb2012

They are reinventing the toilet –

For someone who makes 1 dollar a day, with little water to be used for sanitation, in challenging locations,  having a lack of space, and no existing sewage system.

. . . . . . . . .

  X-Runner is designed with the  following principles / features:

– It must be desirable
– It is private / respects privacy and dignity – it is  in the home
– The waste is  easily transported from the home by the resident (not surprisingly the job falling to the women-typically)
– The toilet base is  also the transportation system in the form of a wheel
– There is a central place for collecting the waste from multiple homes

– This central place is desirable to visit based on the ability to socialize with friends and the access to amenities
– This central collection point has it has a biodigester
– The waste is turned into a useful resources –  energy  and fertilize

– The energy  is returned home from this same place making a complete circle
