A waterless and energy-generating toilet system that is clean and odourless
Loowatt toilets use a patented sealing mechanism to wrap human waste in biodegradable polymer film. The film, which lines the toilet bowl, is pulled through the sealing unit when the toilet is “flushed,” enclosing the waste in a removable cartridge. The cartridge is then emptied into an anaerobic digester, where the waste and polymer film are converted into natural gas and fertiliser. Providing sanitation also requires the safe collection, transport and treatment of faecal sludge. Loowatt develops toilets, pre-treatment technology, and a mobile app that support an efficient service that meets the standards of governments and utilities and can be scaled to address the sanitation challenges of growing urban centres.
