Engineering students design sanitation for Cambodia

A team of final year engineering students is making a significant difference to the lives of a Cambodian community, creating a revolutionary sanitation system that will allow people to capture biogas from human waste and use this for cooking and power.

ABC News 24 spoke with some of the students last week. The student team is currently in Cambodia working on the project with Engineers Without Borders. Their project will be on display at the upcoming Endeavour Design Expo on 27 October at Wilson Hall.

  1. Thumbs up for that revolutionary sanitation system !
    It’s the kind of system we need in Burundi where the population is still relying on wood for cooking,destroying forest and vegetation .We need someone to show us there is another way around.I am happy this way came to be!
