Overview

In up to 40% of the land mass in Eastern Africa, pit toilets are not feasible due to loose soil and high water tables being more vulnerable to contamination. Densely populated areas are also at risk of pit latrines. Our Eko-loo brand toilet block is the full ecological solution with no pit use. Sitting above ground, the EkoLoo diverts sterile urine, which is then mixed with gray household water and used as a liquid fertilizer to a vegetable garden or soak pit. Faeces, when collected separately, dries out to a quarter of its original volume and can be incinerated to dispose. Alternately, the faeces are collected and dried out for a longer period(when microbes and other and can be added to soil as fertilizer.
