Approximately 25% of world's population lacks basic sanitation amenities. This lack of sanitation leads directly to the spread of contagious diseases and parasites. One method that can help mitigate these consequences is the thermal treatment of human feces in a combustion system. Colorado State University's Advanced Biomass Combustion Lab has been working on thermal treatment systems as part of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Reinvent the toilet challenge for over 7 years. The goal is to develop stand-alone treatment technologies that can process waste for less than 5 cents per person per ...
