Our team conducts its research on real human waste. Sourcing of raw materials (a.k.a. poop) is a fundamental component of the resarch project. Our tireless team patronized public bathrooms, recruited at race port-a-potties, petitioned at park latrines, and solicited engineering students all in the name of science in their search for poop and fecal sludge.
In total, over 75 donors provided us with over 100 kg. of poop. The Sol-Char team would like to thank everyone for their generous donations that made our research possible! All-star donors received custom "I gave a crap for science" paraphenalia.
