Une initiative de LiquidGold Africa

Présentation de l'initiative

LiquidGold Africa PitLess Generation project will see the deployment of over 1500 E-containers, which is a 100% waterless gender neutral sanitation and nutrient recovery solution, into schools through a public-private partnership to meet the urgent need to eradicate pit toilets in schools impacting over 3 500 000 million children.

The project will be the largest urine diversion and nutrient recovery project in the World. LiquidGold will gain over 8000 tones of fertilizer per year from the project leading to the biggest biological circular project in Africa and aiding towards food security from the resources extracted through the process.

Toilet resources are a major part of the bio-cycle and are seen as one of the greatest opportunities of the decade (www.toiletboard.org).
