The AWA toilet is an innovative peridomiciliary toilet module installed autonomously from traditional water and sewage networks that provides a sanitary system for domestic and toilet activities for the communities that inhabit the dispersed Amazon. This service uses rainwater and solar energy as natural resources that allow its sustainable operation. The PVC pipe system allows a flexible design, easy construction, replicability, use and maintenance where rainwater is stored for hygiene, complemented with the dry toilet, the use of the dehydration chamber reduces pollution in rivers.
