It also has a complementary solution of multipurpose light architecture that can be used as an installation for toilets or as composting or drying spaces for a safe processing of human waste, which can be converted into fertilizer or bio-soil for the floors. In the process, water is protected that will not be used in traditional sanitation, which will improve the health and quality of life of communities that can consume water contaminated by traditional basic sanitation systems.
