Created by researchers at Cranford University in the United Kingdom, the 'Nano Membrane' waterless toilet is designed to be an efficient, easily maintained way to provide enhanced functionality.
Aside from requiring no water, the 'Nano Membrane' waterless toilet is capable of removing water from fecal waste, filtering it and providing potable water to inhabitants of the home. What's more, the leftover waste would then be transformed into a means of fuel for powering the home.
With around 2.3 billion people worldwide without access to a private toilet, the 'Nano Membrane' waterless toilet comes as a welcome addition that could help revolutionize mindsets around going to the washroom. The toilet is set to be trialled in Africa (potentially Ghana) in the coming year.
