Project Details


The New Jersey Institute of Technology student chapter of Engineers Without Borders (NJIT-EWB) is working with the Center for the Rural Development of Milot (CRUDEM) in Milot, Haiti to develop an ecologically sustainable sanitation system for the local hospital Hôpital Sacré Coeur. It will collect human waste, convert it into fertilizer through anaerobic digestion, and capture the methane gas emissions formed as a byproduct of the process for on-site use as a heating fuel.
