DROPL / Sanitation system


DROPL is a system designed to recycle and reuse human waste, transforming it into raw materials. This waste can become a resource once it is transformed into biogas (fuel or energy) and fertilizer. A collection service has been designed within the system for daily waste, a dry toilet designed for adults and children, and a privacy curtain in the home. There is also an app to buy the toilet and keep track of the service. DROPL is in line with UN Sustainable Development Goal 6.
