Samsung has just created a revolutionary toilet. These will help to manage the health problems facing developing countries. Project resulting from the partnership between Samsung and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Since the great man of Tech retired from professional life, he has devoted his life to Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Created in 2000, the foundation fights against global warming, works for food security and against poverty in the world. In response to a competition launched in 2011 by the Foundation to find a way to wastewater management, Samsung unveiled revolutionary toilets that will change our ways forever.
The toilets developed by Samsung make it possible to independently manage excrement that we put there. They are mainly intended for developing countries, but could also land in Europe in a few years.
To play their role well, samsung toilet are equipped with technology biological and thermal treatment. The latter helps eliminate pathogens contained in feces. The remaining solid waste undergoes a transformation that allows them to dry out. They are then burned to ashes. The result is now safe for the environmentaccording to the technology company.
As for the water that would be used, it is not thrown into nature. This water is also recycled by the toiletsas they already do Japanese high-tech toilets. Except that they are expensive and not everyone could afford them.
The toilets unveiled by the Samsung brand will allow solve the problem of many developing countries, the majority of whom are African. They face various health problems, including faeces management. The solutions found so far are unconvincing, due to environmental factors. This is therefore the problem that the Foundation of the American billionaire couple aims to solve by launching its competition in 2011.
In many countries around the world, the daily life of many people is still difficult to live. According to WHOnear 3.6 billion people still use unsanitary toilets. As a result, the waters are contaminated. Which attracts various diseases. The World Health Organization says that these undrinkable waters attract the death of nearly 500,000 children less than 5 years old each year. We can therefore say that Samsung’s invention comes at the right time.
The Korean group’s research department has been working in partnership with the Foundation since 2019. The prototype of providential toilet has already undergone a series of tests that have led to its improvement. However, it would still take a while for marketing. To this end, Samsung announces that patent licenses concerning toilets will be offered free of charge to developing countries.
