Bold solutions for
THE URBAN SANITATION CHALLENGE
Cities are growing faster than ever. Currently, 60 million new residents move to urban areas every year.
25% live in slums, amounting to 1 billion people with inadequate housing and limited access to basic
services. This number is expected to double to 2 billion by 2030.
In Kenya, loss of productivity due to illness costs the country 1% of its GDP every year and at current
rates, complete sanitation coverage will take 150 years. Sanergy provides non-sewered sanitation
solutions that serve all urban residents and are 4 times cheaper than sewers.
We build affordable sanitation products
designed specifically for urban slums,
and franchise them to community
members to serve all residents.
We professionally collect sanitation waste from
the community by handcarts and trucks.
Handcarts ensure that we can install
toilets deep in slums.

Treat & Convert
We convert the waste at a centralized
facility into valuable end-products
such as organic fertilizer and insect
-based animal feed.
