UB Team logo

UB Team is a University based research group, responsible for a new “blue” waste management. The UB Team participated in the "Terra Preta Sanitation System International Competition AWARD" with a project proposing innovative solutions titled: TERRA PRETA PACKAGING SYSTEM: A NEW “BLUE” WASTE MANAGEMENT.

The mentioned project was presented at the 12th GCSM (Global Conference on Sustainable Manufacturing) 2014 held in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, 2014, September 23-25.


The proposed innovative system is called Terra Preta Packaging System (TPPS). It creates a loop system among food, excrement and soil closing a “blue” non-polluting cycle and creating value by selling Biochar.

The keys of the TPPS are:
• The Packaging Toilet System (PTS),
• The Handling Service (HS),
• The Green Pyrolysis Area (GPA),
• The Biochar.

The TPPS is based on the use of a PTS that can collect human excrements in compostable single use bags.
