    The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is on a mission to find a new model for the toilet that would reinvent the model for the 2.5 billion people around the world without access to modern sanitation, the Associated Press reported.
    The competition to find the toilet of the future has attracted scientists and inventors from across the globe, with models like one using microwave energy to transform human waste into electricity and another that captures urine to use for flushing. Another converts excrement into charcoal that can then be burned for energy.
    “We couldn’t be happier with the response that we’ve gotten,” Bill Gates said.
    The toilet of the future must be able to operate without running water, electricity or a septic system, the competition stipulates. It must also not discharge pollutants and preferably be able to capture energy, all at a cost of less than 5 center per day.
    At stake is the more than $370 million the foundation is willing to put up to find the toilet of the future. The foundation held a toilet fair this week to show how much progress has been made in just one year since the search for the toilet of the future was kicked off.
    The “Reinvent the Toilet Fair” was held in Seattle and awarded prizes for promising designs. First prize went to a model developed at California Institute of Technology, a solar-powered toilet that generated hydrogen gas and electricity, AFP reported.

    “The flush toilets we use in the wealthy world are irrelevant, impractical and impossible for 40 percent of the global population, because they often don’t have access to water, and sewers, electricity, and sewage treatment systems,” Gates said in a statement.
    The search for the toilet of the future comes at an important time for health worldwide. The United Nations estimates that close to half of the hospitalizations in the developing world are caused by unsafe sanitation, and 1.5 million children die each year from diarrheal disease.

    The charitable foundation founded by Gates and his wife kicked off a "Reinvent the Toilet Fair" in Seattle and awarded prizes for promising innovations.
    "Toilets are extremely important for public health and, when you think of it, even human dignity," Gates said in a statement at thegatesnotes.com.
    "The flush toilets we use in the wealthy world are irrelevant, impractical and impossible for 40 percent of the global population, because they often don't have access to water, and sewers, electricity, and sewage treatment systems."
    The Toilet Fair was described as a swirl of about 200 inventors, designers, investors, partners and others passionate about creating safe, effective, and inexpensive waste management systems.
    Universities from Britain, Canada, and the United States were awarded prizes in a competition launched a year ago challenging inventors to come up with a better toilet.
    First place went to the California Institute of Technology for designing a solar-powered toilet that generates hydrogen gas and electricity.
    Loughborough University came in second for a toilet that transforms waste into biological charcoal, minerals, and clean water.
    Third place went to the University of Toronto for a toilet that sanitizes human waste and recovers minerals and water.
    "Four in 10 people worldwide don't have a safe way to poop," the Gates Foundation said in a message beneath a Reinvent the Toilet video at its gatesfoundation.org website.
    Approximately 2.5 billion people worldwide don't have access to safe sanitation systems for handling the basic and vital need to dispose of bodily waste, according to Gates.
    "Beyond a question of human dignity, this lack of access also endangers people's lives, creates an economic and a health burden for poor communities, and hurts the environment," Gates said.
    Food or water tainted with fecal matter causes intestinal diseases that kill 1.5 million children annually -- a figure higher than deaths from AIDS and malaria combined, according to Gates.
    "Inventing new toilets is one of the most important things we can do to reduce child deaths and disease and improve people's lives," Gates said.
    "It is also something that can help wealthier countries conserve fresh water for other important purposes besides flushing."

    Kwa kweli VETA na CARITAS wangechangamkia hii. Wa kamodify hata vyoo vya kiswahili, ila watanzania wavivu sana kujituma
    Humu JF watu kibao wanatafuta kazi au mawazo ya kufanya biashara, zikitokea fursa hawasemi kitu, wanaogopa risks.
    Hii thread haina hata mchangiaji sijui kwa vile hamn udaku na majungu ndani yake?
    Inaelekea watu tunataka ajira tu ili tuibie waajiri wetu, kama ilivyo katika damu zetu, Haya......
