The South African Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) has developed a Sanitation Technology Demonstration Centre on its Built Environment Innovation Site in Pretoria, Gauteng. The development of this centre, a first in South Africa, was conceptualised and jointly funded by the Water Research Commission (WRC) and CSIR Built Environment.

The aim of the centre is to provide practical and visual information on various sanitation toilet technologies that support sustainable human settlements. The demonstration centre will be a one-stop site for full-scale examples of some sanitation technologies.

People who visit the centre will get first-hand information on existing and some new sanitation technologies. This will create a better understanding and appreciation of different and of alternative technologies. The targeted audience includes the general public, learners, communities, government officials, municipal councillors, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), technical professionals and the private sector.

The Sanitation Technology Demonstration Centre is divided into three main areas:

A dry sanitation area, which is divided into a technology area and a top structure area.
A urine separation sanitation area.
A water borne sanitation area.
