Samsung has developed, in collaboration with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the prototype of an intelligent toilet that boasts of being especially hygienic and ecological.
In 2011, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation launched through its ‘Water, Sanitation and Hygiene’ program the challenge to reinvent the toilet. Its objective was to promote the development of new technologies for the safe and effective management of human wasteas explained on its website.
The institution maintains that the initiative aspires to change the lives of 3.5 billion people around the world who lack adequate hygienic conditions to access this service.
The South Korean technology company has picked up the gauntlet of the institution and the Samsung Institute for Advanced Technology (SAIT) has dedicated the last three years to the development of a smart toilet prototype, as noted in a statement.
This toilet claims to be energy efficient. Also, your system allows the use of fully recycled water. On the one hand, dehydrates, dries and burns solid waste. On the other hand, it treats liquids through a biological purification process.
Samsung has also developed heat treatment and bioprocessing technologies to eliminate pathogens present in human waste. The company ensures that, thanks to all these characteristics, its prototype is safe for use within the domestic environment.
the south korean plans now to offer patent licenses related to his projectfree and royalty-free, to developing countries during the commercialization phase.
Samsung has added that it will continue to work closely with the foundation to help move these technologies into mass production. In this sense, both organizations will collaborate to identify partners willing to market it after polishing the design for mass production.
