Sanitation Technology Platform

2016 - 2020 • RTI, Research Triangle Institute

Purpose

De-risking and accelerating innovations in sanitation

Activities

STeP serves as a platform to de-risk and accelerate innovative sanitation solutions. We help partners - technology developers, commercial partners, and financing partners - navigate the challenge of commercializing new products in emerging markets. We take a holistic, systems approach to commercialization support that integrates market, user, and technology insights. Specifically, we help partners develop strong business models; field test in real-world contexts; and identify and nurture the partnerships needed to achieve impact. Activities include: field testing; market intelligence and business planning; commercialization and technology transfer; and user insights.

RTI International is an independent, nonprofit institute that provides research, development, and technical services to government and commercial clients worldwide. Our mission is to improve the human condition by turning knowledge into practice. RTI is the implementing partner of the Sanitation Technology Platform (STeP), funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF). STeP helps transformative sanitation technologies reach the 4.5 billion people worldwide who don't have access to safely managed sanitation by de-risking and accelerating innovative sanitation solutions. We help partners - technology developers, commercial partners, and financing partners - develop strong business models, field test products in real-world contexts, and identify and nurture the partnerships needed to achieve impact. RTI also implements the Nigeria Effective Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (E-WASH) project, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Under this project, we expect to improve water delivery to 500,000 households by boosting the productivity and efficiency of State Water Boards (SWBs). Read more on our project page.
