Solar Sanitation System Awarded $40,000 in Startup Chile Funding

While much of campus melts in the heat and humidity of July, five researchers will migrate south to winter in Santiago, Chile, to develop a startup venture aimed at providing sanitation to remote and low-income communities.

Sanivation was one of 110 companies awarded $40,000 from Startup Chile, a six-month Chilean government program encouraging entrepreneurial activity in the South American country.
