A solution to road hazardous waste

It was remissed of us (ICIS Chemical Business, the magazine I work for) not to include this important news in our next week’s logistics issue. To compensate, I decided to put this as the blog’s green feature of the week!

The revolutionary Ipee, a disposable, biodegradable, single-use urine device. It converts the urine into a solid in seconds utilizing an organic absorbent. After use, the device is safely discarded in the trash. There are no harmful chemicals — and it is completely environmentally-friendly, unlike conventional units that require special waste disposal.

“Truckers are no longer forced to pee in bottles,” says John Regan , VP Business Development of the iPee® is a division of the SuperSlab 100® Corporation.

“Urine-filled containers often referred to as “Trucker Bombs” are tossed onto North American highways by the millions every month. iPee provides truckers much needed relief when required, and it helps to save the environment. It also helps save taxpayer money in highway cleanup crews — and potentially high fine charges!”

The device is also equipped with an adapter for females.

    Not quite yet. We still need a solution to a bigger hazardous problem –The number 2! Can anybody develop a biomass-based portable electricity generator? No batteries needed!
