With sustainability being an increasingly pressing topic throughout the world, communities are looking to introduce responsible processes in all areas of life. Waterless sanitation solutions are one such option, and are especially suitable in areas where water is a limited resource. Waterless sanitation has often relied heavily on chemical or bucket and pit latrine systems, yet Corilla Plastics has helped to create a new, effective solution using rotational moulding.
Products created through rotational moulding are inherently sturdy, as the process does not introduce additional stress to the plastic. Moreover, it is the forming process of choice for short to medium product runs, as per-unit costs are low even for complex designs.
Corilla Plastics worked alongside a world leading container-based sanitation supplier with experience in producing a versatile, waterless toilet solution for homes, events and pop-up locations.
A breakthrough in waterless sanitation solutions
Corilla Plastics helped the client to create bespoke plastic components for a portable, non-sewered toilet to provide a cleaner, safer and more desirable toilet facilities. Using patented technology, the product provides a high-quality waterless flush that locks in odour and disease, and is a sanitary solution that Corilla Plastics was proud to help bring to fruition.
The client needed to find a manufacturing partner to produce bespoke plastic components to be assembled as part of full systems at their London site. After assessing the options available in the market, they decided roto moulding would be the most cost-effective manufacturing method to produce the size, designs and quantities of parts required.
The complex geometry of the parts made it a very technical specification, so it was also crucial that the parts would be manufactured with ultimate precision so they would fit together with other components during assembly.
Corilla Plastics supported the client from the design stage onwards, entering into conversations about how the production requirements could be met. Following a meeting at the Corilla Plastics manufacturing site, it was clear that the South-Wales roto-moulding company could fulfil the project with aplomb.
Once Corilla Plastics was assigned to the project, the team began working on the design and manufacture of pedestals, toilet housing and plungers. Corilla Plastics’ extensive knowledge of materials combined with its roto-moulding prowess ensured that the components were created exactly to specification – taking into consideration thicknesses and shrinkage rates. The design process benefitted from the input of Corilla Plastics, the client and a third-party toolmaker in Italy. By the end of 2019 Corilla Plastics will have delivered in excess of 800 units and this is expected to rise to 2,000 units in 2020.
