About Us

The call to nature unites us all, however depending on where we live, it might be impossible for us to dispose of it, we are here to make that possible.

To achieve the SDGs, we need everyone’s poo to take a 4-step journey: containment, transport, treatment, and disposal or reuse.

  • Containment

    Poo must be deposited into a hygienic toilet and stored in a seated pit or tank, separated from human contact

  • Transport

    Pipes or latrine emptying services must move the poo to the treatment stage

  • Treatment

    Poo must be processed into wastewater and waste products that can be safely returned to the environment

  • Disposal or Reuse

    Safely treated poo can be used for energy generation or in fertilizer production
