We chose to use a model that is already developed by EEDS, and adapt the mold so that we can fix a bag on it.

##### STORYBOARD
The aim of this project is to make aware of the sanitation issues, especially in the camps where diseases can quickly and easily spread in the soil and then, in the water.
Awareness begin right now, with the production of the squatting pans and the bags, explaining to people, educating children in schools, ... Every body can produce pans with the right mold and explanations so it can be appropriated by people themselves.
Wooden Molds are first produced in India by Fab Labs following the dimensions that we sent to them. Then, they will send it to companies that produce pans and organizations that teach people how to make pans. Everybody will be able to take a mold from the Fab Labs.
In case of a disaster, around twenty of micro concrete squatting pans per camps are brought with a stock of bags, like the aid kits that are distributed by NGOs. Near the camp, Holes are digged by people and NGOs to put in the bags that are hooked to the pans. A structure with bamboo sticks and tarpaulin is deployed around the toilets as the system of Mahila Gappa Shauchalaya, only for women and children, and an other one for men.
Full bags are stocked, and then collected when possible. (We can't exactly explain this process as we couldn't develop the bag and make more researches about the possibilities).
Women will be safer when using these toilets, and soil and water will not be more polluted.
We are sure that in India, people will make molds with cheaper materials like steel, so the more important in this project is the new form of squatting pans.
##### TUTORIAL
*<u>NEEDS :</u>*
* *Wood panel of 80x 80cm and 30 mm thick (Any kind of wood but don't use OSB)*
* *CNC machine*
* *Sanding machine or pumice paper*
> Step 1 : Use the 3D model or make one with this form: the 3D model of the pan with an elevated hole. In that way it will be possible to attach a plastic bag on it with a rubber ring

> Step 2 : Make the wooden mold with CNC machine. You'll need a wood panel of minimum 90cm x 90cm and 30 mm thick. If you use MDF or similar wood, you'll have to saturate the wood with Vaseline or any fatty material before step 3. Block Board is better, it's far less porous so it's not necessary to saturate it, but it's more expensive.

After mounting and testing it, we realized that : there is a lack of stability, the kit was not light enough, it was not easy to put the bottles in the holes (especially if the soil is not horizontal). The height of the toilet is comfortable but is it adapted to the context of Kerala? We know they use Turkish toilets.

We discovered this prototype which gave us a new impetus: The "IThrone", where liquids evaporate, reducing the frequency of waste collection and their impact (on odors, hygiene, weight, volume, ...) thanks to a special kind of polymer. We began researches on the principle of heat shrinkable material and its equivalent in natural materials. We have been looking for fibers with the ability to be permeable and at the same time of retaining liquids to allow only evaporation, taking into account what materials are available in India.

##### INDIAN CALL
Following our last exchange with Kerala, we learned that the stakes of our project is firstly: the scale, and then: the waste (how to collect it and what to do with it in an emergency situation). Also, the biggest problem in India is that the septic tanks overflow in case of large uses.

So we returned again to our toilet in kit system and focused on developing the natural bag that would be equivalent to a heat-shrinkable polymer. We collected donkey wastes and distributed it into various bags made of linen, cotton, jute fiber and coconut fiber, to see which material will be able to retain the liquids and let it evaporate. We put the natural bags into bigger plastic bags to reproduce the environment into the closed box structure of the toilet.

She offered us to experience the coprophagous bacterias: echoli and yeast. Mixed with waste and natural bags, all put in closed jars, it would allow us to determine the time needed for the bacterias to deteriorate the waste. The idea would be to design tablets based on these bacterias. It's not the idea of a bag that evaporate the liquid, but it could be a different solution, maybe easier to develop. The problem is that if bacterias escape into the air, it is dangerous and causes diseases and infections.

##### NEW IDEA
We then considered the absorption of liquids rather than evaporation, similar to the system used in campsites (a biodegradable bag with, basically, a kind of pads containing a liquid-absorbing polymer). One discovery in particular attracted us: the orange-avocado mixture that can be turned into a bio-polymer that absorbs liquids. But we didn't have time anymore. We decided to leave the bag issue to the care of professionals. We have now to focus on what we can do on our own : the toilet structure.

##### STRUCTURE
The cardboard structure, the raw earth construction, the earthen filled bottles constructions are the systems we explored before concluding that they do not meet our constraints. We tried to build an Earthbag toilet that does not answer either. Finally, we chose to develop a kit to quickly build Turkish toilets, thanks to a mold.

We will use wooden mold because it's easier here for us.

We did the 3D model of the pan with an elevated hole. In that way it will be possible to attach a plastic bag on it with a rubber ring. Then, we used CNC machine to make the wooden mold of the pan in a Block-board panel. It took 40 minutes. We also did a lid to protect from smells. First we wanted to use silicone mold but it's too expensive. We though about using this mold with thermoforming technique to make a plastic mold (similar to a steel one, as we can see in India).
