Global Inventive Industries (GII) has been awarded a US Government contract to supply its waste combustion systems to McMurdo, Antarctica. GII manufactures special incinerating toilet systems / buildings and these are installed in Antarctica.
Antarctica has one of the most extreme environments on earth. It is the coldest, driest and windiest continent, and has the highest average elevation of all the continents. The temperature in Antarctica has reached −89°C (−129°F).
NSF (National Science Foundation) has a strong presence in McMurdo and is using a custom-built mobile building with incinerators from GII. The logistical and environmental problems related to waste handling in Antarctica are massive and the ECOJOHN® products will help solve some of these issues.
