My dad showed me an article in the Financial Times called "Six Solutions to a Shortage." The article was about new technologies designed to conserve water. The solution I found most interesting was called "the waterless toilet." The waterless toilet is a toilet that does not use water. The toilet is bigger than the toilet we have in our homes. In the waterless toilet, after flushing, the urine and the feces get seperated into two groups. The urine is disinfected through an electrochemical process and the treated water can then be used to rinse the toilet. The feces is dried and broken into pellets which can be burned to create electricity. These toilets, which are funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are being tested in Gujarat, India which is where my grandparents are from. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is working on this because 700,000 children die year from diarrhea due to poor sanitation.
