Innovative urinal and Urine Diversion Toilet by Oxfam

November 4, 2011

Female urinal

The female urinal is from Haiti. This was done in conjunction with the pee poo trial. The main logic for this was related to not using the pee poo bags only for passing urine, so the team designed urinals with the women and men, which were placed in one of the superstructures, like a normal toilet.

The urine diversion again is from Haiti, via Oxfam’s partner SOIL. The photo illustrates well the urine diversion slab, with a bucket beside it which has the bagass, the sugar cane by product of the local rum plant, which is added after each use the faecal matter.

The Urine Diversion is an add on and can be activated if the situation allows, for example of the users accept the technology.
