Luiza Cintra Campos

Luiza Cintra Campos of the University College London has won a US$ 100,000 Gates Foundation grant to to develop a simulation tool to evaluate new on-site sanitation technologies. By including parameters such as pit latrines served, distance to treatment, and potential for energy recovery, the simulation tool can aid communities in determining the best new systems for local needs.

Ms. Campos’ project was one of 31 to be awarded a grant on 7 November 2011 in the “Create the Next Generation of Sanitation Technologies” topic in round 7 of the Grand Challenges Explorations initiative.
