Description and Activities in Sustainable Sanitation:
The World Toilet Association is an international organization dedicated to protecting lives through the improvement of sanitation via toilets. The World Toilet Association considers toilets to be essential to the proper disposal of waste and water management. With other international organizations, however, the subject of toilets is often eclipsed by broader social issues such as 'sanitation' or 'public health.' Considered a taboo topic in everyday parlance, toilets are typically alluded to, rather than referred to directly. By emphasizing the central and crucial role toilets play in daily life, proper sanitation, and hygiene, the WTA seeks to propel topic of toilets to the forefront.

Re: Introducing WéCo from France: A new partner organisation of SuSanA - by: jorg http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/87-new-susana-partners/15653-introducing-weco-from-france-a-new-partner-organisation-of-susana#15785 http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/87-new-susana-partners/15653-introducing-weco-from-france-a-new-partner-organisation-of-susana#15785 thanks for your interest in WéCo, I'll try to resume the most important information about our product :
We are working on the concept of public toilet of the future. Unlike most projects in this domain, WECO should not focus on the use in developing countries or natural areas, but sees itself as an industrial actor with an ecological background. Our product is a kind of small building including several toilets for men an women. Thoseare not different at first view from a conventional flush toilet. The invisible technical part beyond the public are will be separating solid and liquid substances within an internal water circuit and recycles urine into a high phosphorus and nitrate-containing fertilizers with reduced volume. What exactly happens with the faeces, is not clear yet, probably drying and energy recovery. Therefore, the whole installation requires no sanitary infrastructure, it is water- and energy-autonomous. The exterior apperance is characterized a modern design usin recycled and recyclabe materials. The installations are designed for urban centers and high-income users in Europe and Asia.

We are working with French designers, French and German industrial producers a renowned research institute. For instance we are in the phase of realization of a prototype, which should be completed in 2016.

Once we are able to offer a modeling, we will present these and other details on this Restroom in the forum.

If so, how does that help to sanitise the faeces? Can't the pathogens survive freezing?

Could you explain what makes your toilets sustainable ?
WéCo wants to design and create a toilet with the latest technology but most importantly innovate in order to create a product which takes care of the environment.


Could you tell us more about your innovation ? What is the "product" ? and how does it take care of the environment ?

Great to have you as a SuSanA partner. Yesterday, I attended a webinar by the Gates Foundation where they spoke about their sanitation activities and grants in India. Your organisation was mentioned as working on knowledge management platforms for BMGF grantees in India. I then asked the question how your work would be related to SuSanA and Madhu Krishna from BMGF said that you would also be working through/with SuSanA (as well as setting up something separate?).

Could you please tell us more what your contract or grant with the BMGF involves in this respect and what your plans are for these knowledge management and sharing platforms in India?
