Sanergy

Sanergy is an organization seeking to combat Kenya’s sanitation problem directly “non-sewered sanitation solutions” for urban residents.

Archimedes Project is proud to announce a partnership with Sanergy. Sanergy is an organization seeking to combat Kenya’s sanitation problem directly “non-sewered sanitation solutions” for urban residents. Their goal is to provide quality sanitation at a low cost to both consumers and the government. Currently, Sanergy’s facilities are serving 90,000 people per day.

Sanergy’s model is unique. They have constructed a sanitation unit. This miniature bathroom comes equipped with a toilet capable of separating liquid from solid waste, a bin for disposal of feminine hygiene products, and a sink. Sanergy franchises its units to members of the community, returning, daily, to collect waste from the facilities. They then treat the waste, and convert it into fertilizer and other products. This holistic model ensures that community members and owners are receiving a quality service.

It is an honor for us to be able to work with Sanergy at our Ideation Lab in March! Join us and learn more.
