This article is a part of the IDPS project that took place during spring 2013. The project is collaboration between the project group at UPC and the bathroom fitting firm Roca. Roca aims to be at the forefront of defending the environment and caring for water why they have collaborated with UPC in order to design a WC Cubicle for developing countries, more specific India. Some parts of the world still face the problem of poor or lack of sanitation why the project is seeking to show that it is both worthwhile and possible for everyone to take care and conserve the planet in the context of human waste treatment. Research about India, their culture habits and beliefs, and also current solutions and techniques of handling and recycling waste gave a profound base to establish an innovative and adequate concept. The project result outlined in a new two hole pan which besides separating solids from liquids, also provides an odour barrier due to an innovative flap system. The solids are treated in a bio digester in order to create biogas and fertilizer and the urine is stored for six months to convert to fertilizer.
