Get to know Peepoo – the self-sanitising, biodegradable, household toilet – At World Water Week 2015

Peepoo is a single-use, fully biodegradable, household toilet that sanitises excreta after use. It does not require fixed infrastructure or water. It turns human waste into an organic fertiliser high in NPK and which improves soil properties as water holding capacity. The inventor, Professor Anders Wilhelmson was honoured as Ashoka Fellow for developing a system changing solution that can be scalable all over the world. Today Peepoo is used in both urban slums and emergencies around the world.

During the visit particpants got the chance to hear about the journey from innovation to mass production. They were able to see and hear more about our large-scale production and Peepoo sanitation solution was presented from a case study perspective. Dr. Annika Nordin, researcher at Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences presented the ammonia sanitisation treatment technology which is used in the Peepoo.
