Abstract : The report presents results and an evaluation of efforts to modify the burn-out latrine to improve its operational characteristics while maintaining simplicity of fabrications. Modifications to the burn-out latrine, developed by Illinois Institute of Technology Research Institute, consist primarily of a method of metering fuel into a waste container, and the addition of a burner stack assembly designed to reduce smoke by improving air-fuel mixture, detention time, and other pertinent considerations. These modifications were fabricated, operated, and tested under field conditions. (Modified author abstract)
