Details on waterless urinals for women?
This question was posted by Claudia Wendland in the SuSanA forum http://forum.susana.org/forum/categor... but nobody answered it and maybe some of you could help us with the answer here:
We have requests from several partners concerning waterless urinals for women. I am interested in knowing details, with special focus on design about them. I would appreciate if you could share your information with me or suggest a suitable person whom I can contact for details.
Also wanted to know what is the material used for making the membrane in waterless urinals and how to dispose the membrance after its use etc.

I don't have particular experience in this area other than know that the technology between the male and female units are essentially the same, what differs is the ergonomic design.
There are a number of designs beyond the membrane version, but the membrane version is ostensibly the most cost effective version. I incidentally found this document which you may already know that I found helpful:
So perhaps the authors of this are a good place to start.
