Reinvented Toilet Expo

Researchers from WaSH-AID and several of our partners attended the invitation-only Reinvented Toilet Expo hosted by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in Beijing, China, on November 6-8, 2018.

At the Expo, WaSH-AID showcased the Reclaimer, a compact, automated, scalable technology designed to rapidly treat blackwater to ISO 30500 standards, enabling water conservation and re-use; and the S.H.E. (Safe Hygiene for Everyone), a fully automated, sterile, sanitary pad disposal unit designed to provide safe and hygienic menstrual hygiene waste reduction as well as dignity and privacy for women and girls; and the Empower sanitation platform, a concept of scalable onsite liquid and solid waste treatment technologies.
