Waterless Loo

Loowatt, a London startup, is piloting a low-cost, waterless toilet in Antananarivo, Madagascar, seeking to solve a sanitation challenge in parts of the world where flushing toilet systems aren’t feasible.

Using a biodegradable white film that encases excrement upon flushing, the Loowatt toilet collects waste in a receptacle. Once the container is full, service teams transport the waste to Loowatt’s processing facility to be made into biogas and fertilizer. Setup is free with a £3 per month service fee and £12 deposit.

Loowatt hopes to be the city’s main sanitation provider within 5 to 10 years.
