Cities around the world are growing rapidly. Today, the population in urban slums is 1 billion and is expected to increase to more than 3 billion people by 2050. With existing infrastructure already struggling to keep pace, 70% of slum residents live without access to a safe sanitation option. As a result, 1 million people die each year due to sanitation-related diseases, and economies lose $260 billion in impaired productively. Sanergy has a variety of bold sanitation and waste management solutions for these booming cities! A solution that addresses all systemic gaps from waste containment, emptying, transport, treatment and reuse. Our approach involves building a repertoire of low-cost, high-quality sanitation products and services for residents living in urban non-sewered areas, safely removing all of the waste generated by our customers and transporting it to our central processing plant for treatment and up-cycling into high quality agricultural inputs. To date, we have built a network of over 2,500 Fresh Life Toilets, which serve over 100,000 urban residents with safe sanitation every single day. We also safely remove and up-cycle over 6,000 metric tonnes of waste every year.
