How is the Bill Gates toilet that Samsung will build | Digital Trends Spanish

A true revolution of «poop» and for the bathroom is what the new promises toilet that Samsung will build together with Bill Gates and that promises to destroy all waste.

The project began in 2011, when the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation issued the “Reinvent the Toilet Challenge«. Samsung and the Gates Foundation teamed up in 2019 to create the new product, which doesn’t use a typical sewer system.

According to a samsung ad on the WC, it recycles the pee through a purification process, while the solid waste is dehydrated, dried and “burned to ashes”.

What does the Japanese manufacturer say about this toilet:

“During three years of research and development, SAIT worked on the basic design and developed the component and modular technology, leading to the successful development of a prototype for home use. The product is energy efficient with effluent treatment capabilities and meets the performance required by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for the commercialization of a reinvented toilet for domestic use.

Core technologies developed by Samsung include heat treatment and bioprocessing technologies to kill pathogens from human waste and make released effluents and solids safe for the environment. The system allows completely recycling the treated water. Solid waste is dehydrated, dried and burned to ashes, while liquid waste is treated through a biological purification process.”
