Outside view of Pizza Box under CCAT's kitchen sink.

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.

  1. Project Formulation
  2. Problem Analysis and Literature Review
  3. Search for Alternative Solutions
  4. Decision Process
  5. 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.
