    For 2.5 billion people around the planet, the accessibility to the simplest conveniences of sanitation is simply not there, stated Dennis Warner, recently retired senior technical adviser for Catholic Relief Services' water supply, sanitation, and water resources development office. As a result mainly people below the age of 5, die from diarrhea Every Year

    "These unfortunate souls have to defecate ... in the streets, close to the lake, a backyard, the bushes, or the other side of the street. In stark terms, this implies that over one of every 3 men cannot eliminate their bodily wastes in a secure fashion," he explained.

    Input the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. This past August awarded prizes at a competition to universities known as the Reinvent the Toilet Challenge.

    The Gates competition asked inventors flip it into sources such as water and energy for a reasonable price and can process waste. The fourth standards: invent a really inspirational "next generation" product that everybody may want to utilize, in rich in addition to developing countries.

    This past year, grants were awarded by the foundation to research groups. The initial round of winners:

    * The California Institute of Technology at Pasadena obtained the top prize that was $ 100,000 for designing.

    * Loughborough University in Leicestershire, England, won place for a toiletthat and $ 60,000 creates minerals, charcoal and water.

    * The University of Toronto took a $ 40,000 prize for a bathroom along with place that sanitizes wash water and solids and pee and recovers funds.

    Recognition went to their version to Eawag. It's a design which used and may be retrofitted everywhere there is space for a bathroom.

The water vapor is condensed and is fantastic for irrigation or washing.

    * A $450,000 grant to firm Eram Scientific Solutions will create public bathrooms more reachable to-the urban poor through an eco-frienclly blank "e Toilet."

    * RTI International, a nonprofit research institute in North Carolina, will use its $1.3 million award to develop a self indulgent toilet system which disinfects liquid waste and turns the solids to electricity or gas utilizing a biomass energy conversion device.

    * The University of Colorado Boulder's almost $780,000 goes toward creating a toilet which utilizes sunlight focused to disinfect solid and liquid waste and turn it into charcoal which may replace compound fertilizers or wood charcoal.

    The Gates Foundation would like to field-test those prototypes.

    In a media release, base cochair Bill Gates explained that he considers that these bathrooms wind up enhancing the surroundings and may be remedies for the very first World. Flush don't recapture resources like the energy in waste, and ToiletsZones waste heaps of drinking water every year, '' he explained.
