This project will support the implementation of efficient fecal sludge management systems, the production of by-products made from fecal sludge, and the demonstration of the market viability of these by-products.
This project will support the implementation of efficient fecal sludge management systems, the production of by-products made from fecal sludge, and the demonstration of the market viability of these by-products. The project will also allow Sanergy to build an enabling environment in terms of policy and advocacy.
Sanergy began working in Nairobi in November 2011. We design and manufacture low-cost, high-quality sanitation facilities. Developed by our engineers, the Fresh Life Toilet (FLT) is pre-fabricated at our local workshop. Our FLT features qualities users value most:
(1) Establishment of scalable supply chains for sourcing fecal sludge at scale, including taking on fecal sludge from sources other than Sanergy’s network of franchised toilets
(2) Development of commercial processes to convert fecal sludge into saleable by-products, such as active composting processes, biogas production, high-protein animal feed, biochar, and urine valorization
(3) Development of markets for by-products of fecal sludge
Sanergy works with various organisations and other BMGF grantees such as eawag, UKZN, Climate Foundation, Firmenich, WASH United, UNESCO-IHE, and Agriprotein
