➡ Hygienic Pit Latrine Replacement
I’d like to introduce you to our latest toy.
This might not appear wildlife related, but when people shit in rivers, well …
Our aim is to stop contaminating our rivers and feeding invasive plants like water hyacinth in Lake Victoria.
➡We’ve developed a simple low cost replacement for the pit latrine.
➡The system comprises of multi chamber digester to ensures total liquidation of solids and complete fermentation.
➡The system can be primed with cow dung to produce biogas, or with EM to inhibit methane production. This will depend on the desires of the user.
➡The resultant bio-fertiliser is fed through shallow French drains and plants grown on top to take advantage of the 24/7 irrigation, as well as suck up the nutrients so they don’t end up in the rivers and lakes.
➡This also means the system never fills up and never require emptying.
➡The systems are prefabricated and install very easily and quickly.
➡The system installs above ground so rocky areas and high water tables are not an issue.
We’re developing 2 models, the 1st a full bathing room as pictured that can be attached to the house, so the occupants no longer need to track down the shamba to a smelly pit latrine. The second will be a simple loo.
➡The design will suite rentals in urban areas and replace bucket and flying toilets.
➡We are setting up training for youth groups and CBO’s interested in taking this simple clean technology to the people.
Because a lot of dignity and self esteem is associated with having a clean loo, we’ve nicknamed it The Merry Loo 😋
The main Features include;
✅– Non-biodegradeable separator
✅– 7 stage fermenter
