Appropriate Technology Design Team
(R&D group)

The ATDT group was formed in 2005 within the San Francisco Professional Chapter and known for almost a decade as the Appropriate Technology Design Team (ATDT). In 2014, the team evolved into a national EWB-USA group and it changed its name to the Research and Development (R&D) group.

EWB-USA’s new Engineering Service Corps mode includes the R&D group. The SFP ATDT Composing Latrines in Nicaragua was approved as the first national R&D group project. Future SFP Appropriate Technology projects will be done through the EWB-USA R&D Group.

To find out more about R&D group projects or to volunteer, contact the R&D group through the Engineering Service Corps or e-mail your contact info and
background to atdt-info@ewb-sfp.org

The Research and Development (R&D) group develops solutions for community-identified needs that require researching technologies and/or developing new devices. Project teams are recruited from the EWB-USA’s 16,900+ volunteers and are led by experienced professionals. With a broad range of services, these projects apply both practical experience and creative approaches to address community problems.

Composting Toilets

OVERVIEW

The residents of several communities in Nicaragua have a sanitation problem caused by inadequate pit latrines. Based on two successful composting toilet deployments, the SFP Appropriate Technology Design Team (ATDT) has partnered with Rotary clubs of Livermore, CA and Masaya, Nicaragua and NGO, Alcance Nicaragua (AN) for an approved Rotary Global Grant (GG) for $37.5k, enough to do about 80 more urine-diverting-dual-vault composting toilets in four communities: El Llanito and Los Alvarez, near Santa Lucia; and El Tunel, and La Prusia near Masaya.
