We at Enviro Loo are constantly looking at ways to innovate our products and are pleased to announce an exciting addition to our sanitation range. The Enviro Loo Clear Sanitation Treatment Plant is a new generation, closed circuit, 100% recycling and off the grid toilet system. With nearly 30 years in the industry, our reputation as one of the leading dry sanitation companies was instrumental in our selection as the preferred supplier to assess the system for use under African conditions.
The first of its kind in South Africa, The Enviro Loo Clear Sanitation Treatment Plant is a “Reinvent the toilet” system that treats wastewater and kills pathogens by means of a natural biological process, without the need for sewer connections, continuous water, or electrical mains supply with the take up of the solar option.
Extensive testing as part of the South African Sanitation Enterprise Programme (SASTEP), was conducted over 18 months with pilot projects at two schools and an informal settlement. These projects have proven the reliability of the system offering a quality, aspirational flushing toilet experience with a high level of user acceptability. Results show that school absenteeism has been reduced by as much as 80% since the introduction of the system.
The Enviro Loo Clear Sanitation Treatment Plant system is now locally manufactured at the Enviro Loo facility near Johannesburg and is poised to make a difference to sanitation in water scarce regions.
UNICEF estimates that half of the global population will face water scarcity by 2025, and by 2030 around 700 million people will be displaced by intense water scarcity. As on-site wastewater treatment plants prevent contamination of valuable water resources and allow reuse of water, wastewater treatment is predicted to be one of the most powerful tools to address the water scarcity issues over the next 10 years.
At the same time, our multi award winning dry toilet system, the Enviro Loo, continues to provide a safe, dignified, and hygienic toilet experience at schools, health clinics, households and recreation facilities across South Africa as well as globally.
While there are still a staggering 2.4 billion people across the world without access to adequate sanitation facilities, it is increasingly important to develop innovative, alternative toilet systems that use less and save more. Just one Enviro Loo can save up to 420 000 liters of water annually and with a water treatment capacity of 6,000 to 24,000 liters a day the Enviro Loo Clear Sanitation Treatment Plant promises to be in a water saving class all of its own!
Enviro Loo prides itself on delivering quality, tailormade sanitation solutions with excellent after sales service. Each new Enviro Loo and Enviro Loo Clear Sanitation Treatment Plant comes with a minimum two-year service & maintenance plan. Our business model aims to empower and uplift local communities where possible by training and appointing local contractors to install and service our toilet systems thereby creating employment. Our social facilitation team works towards achieving community buy-in to the technology and ensures that users are trained in its efficient operation.
Our products are not only ideal as a solution for communities with little or no access to water-borne infrastructure, but also for areas that call for zero environmental impact. Our systems have been included in green building initiatives, natural beauty, and heritage sites and in crisis or drought- stricken areas.
Contact us today and let us deliver a sanitation experience that is friendly to people and the environment.
