We all know the many methods of being able to curb down waste while at the same time produce something useful, San+Co offers a keen solution to get all these things done. Already a first prize winner at KIN Global, the whole thing mixes sanitation, service and energy into one.
Through compact mobile toilets, the whole system collects waste which is thereafter transported to a facility which transforms the said waste into useful fertilizer and also electricity. In return, people who submit the said waste are given rechargeable batteries for cellphones and lightbulbs.
“It provides a dignified, safe, and hygienic solution to a basic human need. Off-the-grid electricity translates to increased productivity for adults, extra study time for students, and additional safety. The fertilizer is an organic option for local farmers that helps increase their yield per acre. And the system reduces disease by keeping waste out of the local water supply.”
