AshPoopie concept turns dog doo into ashes


Most dog-walkers accept the necessity of cleaning up after their charges, but no one is claiming that it's a pleasurable experience. While we've seen eco-friendly dog waste disposal bags and systems that turn poop into plant fertilizer, we've yet to come across an approach that takes care of both collection and disposal quite like AshPoopie. Still a concept at this stage, the AshPoopie from Israel-based Paulee CleanTech is a kind of portable refuse incinerator crossed with ordinary one-handed pet waste scoop that's designed to turn feces into 100% sterile ash on the spot.

AshPoopie resembles existing one-handed, no bending pet waste scoop, but it has a retractable handle for portability along with a built-in decomposition chamber where the offending poop is mixed with chemicals from a replaceable cartridge to turn it into odorless, sterile ashes in less than a minute.
