SPARK Releases Easily Transportable 3D Printed Toilet Module For World Toilet Day

SPARK Architects has launched its "Big Arse Toilet" in support of World Toilet day 19th November 2018. The firm has developed an easily transportable 3d printed toilet module in support of the UN initiative to combat open defecation and the associated issues of hygiene and sanitation in India. 

"Open defecation is major contributing cause of disease in under developed countries," said the firm.

SPARK’s bold concept converts human waste into biogas and via a micro CHP unit (combined heat and power) converts the biogas into electricity.

The proposal aims to highlight the urgency of eliminating open defecation as well as the positive benefit of using a natural waste product to create "free" energy for remote communities.
