CU Boulder Team Receives Grant Toward Sustainability

cu boulder sustainabilityWho would have expected a toilet to one day filter water, charge a cellphone or create charcoal to combat climate change? A team of student and faculty engineers from the University of Colorado Boulder has won a grant for nearly $780,000 for its proposal to develop a solar-biochar toilet for use in developing countries throughout the world.

The grant is part of the Reinvent the Toilet Challenge initiated by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to address a sanitation challenge affecting nearly 40 percent of the world’s population. The primary goals: to sanitize waste, use minimal water or electricity, and produce a usable product at low cost.

Congratulations CU Boulder on another big step toward sustainability!
