|Title||Solar Energy Powered Toilet for Emergency or Remote Areas Usage: Maker Movement innovation|
|Title in Arabic||مرحاض بالطاقة الشمسية بالطاقة للمناطق النائية أو الطارئة الاستخدام: صانع حركة الابتكار|
In a time of catastrophes like war or earthquake, people forced to leave their houses and live in tents or remote areas. In both cases, utilities such as electricity, hot water, and probably toilet need to be provided urgently. Maker movement creates a creativity on the mind of engineers. Engineers use knowledge, which they learned to create valuable objects. In this work, a movable toilet, which can be placed in the needed region, is tailored. In this toilet, proper light and hot water are provided from solar energy. The toilet body is made from used plastic containers (1m3). In Gaza, the containers, which are used, are available at cheap prices. They are usually used to hold chlorine gallons. One small solar panel is used to provide the light to the toilet. Hot water is supplied to the toilet by small water heaters tanks that depends on small mirrors to collect the sun light. More explanation on each part will be given in details in the body of the paper.
