To address both of these problems, Sanivation partners with local governments and institutions to implement feces-to-fuel factories. These factories intake fecal sludge and other biomass residues to produce a sustainable fuel. The sale of fuel covers the operation costs of the factory, enabling it to process fecal sludge and produce fuel in perpetuity. We use our brand and credibility to bring together stakeholders to ensure a sustainable world, where safe and dignified sanitation is a reality for everyone, everyday.
