Power Supply Toilet / Excreta Power Generation

Power Supply Toilet
Power Supply Toilet

This is a design to support the informal economic development of India's slums through excreta power generation.The Indian government has been carrying out the"toilet revolution",but it is difficult to mobilize people's enthusiasm. The Dharavi slums are a miracle of India's informal economy. But the workshop lacks infrastructure and power supply.In this design, microbial fuel cells are used to generate electricity, which not only meets the electricity demand of slums, but also helps the government to improve the enthusiasm of people to go to the toilet.
