Report in German but with many self-explanatory pictures

GIZ Bangladesh and the german industrial designer Mona Mijthab developed a non-infractructure-based separation dry toilet for the urban poor in Bangladesh. The toilet is part of a sustainable sanitation system with collectors, transport, human waste treatment and reuse as compost fertiliser or biogas. No water or chemicals are required. The lightweight toilet can be carried and used at a convenient place and is also suitable in cases of emergency, like flooded areas. The toilet will be used by one family or household.
