Technology: Bill Gates Is Backing Cranfield University’s Waterless Toilet Concept (Video)

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is going hard for ‘the toilet of the future’… still. We posted on a prototype the Foundation backed in 2012 on here.

And now this…

In developing countries, access to public utilities like running water and sewer systems are often not available. The lack of those resources leads to unsanitary conditions that can put people’s lives at risk. Researchers at Cranfield University hope to put an end to that with the waterless Nano Membrane Toilet. The design has so much potential to change lives that it’s been backed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Cal Tech’s ‘Toilet of the Future’ Expected To Save Millions Of Lives (video)

“No innovation in 200 years has saved more lives than the toilet,” the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation states. “But 2.6 billion people still don’t have a safe, affordable way to poop.” Consequently, every year,  millions of people in developing nations (mainly across the African, Asian, and South American continents) are still dying due to poor water sanitation. They are often having to drink and cook with with the same water in which they defecate and bathe! That is a staggering, horrid truth. But thankfully, Cal Tech researchers backed by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation are tackling this problem head-on… with advanced technology that should solve the it in a sustainable, cost-effective manner – with self-contained solar-powered toilets and sanitation systems. The video explains it all (in VERY technical depth). This is high-tech employed to its most noble purposes…saving and bettering the lives of millions. Awesome and awe-inspiring! Check out this video on the prototype toilet of the future.
