BBC Coverage of NEWRI-R3C's No-Mix Toilet Project
BBC’s flagship technology programme ‘Click’ featured NTU researchers who have been working on ways to make towns and cities more sustainable by taking waste from housing and turning it into energy. The team created a new type of toilet system which turns human waste into biogas - which can be used for cooking and generating electricity - and biodiesel. The process works best if liquid and solid wastes are kept apart, hence the system has been called the no-mix loo. Solid waste is mixed with food waste to produce bio-gas, while left-over water from the process is used to grow micro algae which produces bio-diesel. The first such toilet is already installed on NTU’s campus.
