Step One - Urine Diversion
- Urine is separated. Further processing dependent on site conditions.
- Solid waste is deposited on a stainless steel deposit tray called the Deposit Zone.
- A scoop of sawdust mix is added before or after the tray is dumped.
- A paper liner can be used to assist in cleanliness.
- The deposit tray dumps its contents into the Mixing Zone.
THE MTEC™ (Multiphase Thermophilic Environment Chamber)
- The solid waste and sawdust mix is processed with an automated mixing blade to form feedstock.
- The Mixing Zone has a heating element to keep the feedstock at optimal conditions, allowing a natural bacteria culture to thrive and start feedstock aerobic digestion
- Some of the feedstock accumulates in the Germination Zone for the purpose of reseeding which keeps the process going.
- Meanwhile some of the feedstock also moves into the Cultivation Zone.
Step Four - Cultivation Zone
- The Cultivation Zone has a heating element and automated mixing blade for stage two treatment.
- In the Cultivation Zone the feedstock continues digestion and transformation into a new substance called Biosynthate. In this area the feedstock is semi-separated from the Mixing Zone.
- The newly formed Biosynthate fills up the Cultivation Zone and is moved across a bridge by a transportation blade into the final treatment area, called the Pasteurization Zone.
Step Five - Pasteurization Zone
- In the Pasteurization Zone, the newly formed Biosynthate is isolated.
- The Pasteurization Zone also has its own heating element and automated mixing blade for this final processing and treatment step.
- The Biosynthate is moved into an output tray where it is collected and emptied into a collection container.
