CCAT kitchen effluent particulate filter. The Campus Center for Appropriate Technology contracted our team, The ECO-PLUMBERS through Engineering 215 Intro to Design at Humboldt State University in order to design a filtration system that would remove the particulate matter from their kitchen sink and improve the functionality of CCAT’s greywater marsh. To accomplish this, Team ECO-PLUMBERS used the five phases of the design process shown in the article.
- Project Formulation
- Problem Analysis and Literature Review
- Search for Alternative Solutions
- Decision Process
- Specification of Final Solution
As a result of the design process Team ECO-PLUMBERS designed constructed and implemented The Pizza Box a sustainable filtration device that is safe and effective.
