Problem Statement

Currently, there are over 2.5 billion people living in the world without having access to proper sanitation. This is primarily because of lack of access to water and/or their financial situation to afford a sanitation system. Therefore, there is a need for a sanitation system which can flush in less water and is inexpensive. This project involves the creation of a sanitation system for use in impoverished areas with little access to water or electricity.
