De-palm TOLIET

Until now, at least 892 million people have continued to defecate in the open air, especially in Africa, which has caused serious pollution to local water sources and the spread of cholera and malaria. Therefore, we use biosynthesis technology and use common indecomposable palm dregs as raw materials to design a simple toilet, which does not cause pollution in the process of manufacture, installation, use and follow-up recovery. finally, the collected excreta can be directly fermented and used as fertilizer in agricultural production to achieve sustainable development.
