Not yet. We do not currently sell toilets because the Loowatt Toilet System is still in piloting stages in Madagascar and we are commencing a UK pilot in 2014. We appreciate your interest and hope you stay in touch. Please subscribe to our informative newsletter so you can be the first to know when we begin selling.
The average toilet uses 5 – 15 liters of water per flush, which is a huge waster of Earth’s scarce fresh water resources. The Loowatt toilet is completely waterless by utilizing a unique patent-protected mechanical sealing unit to contain human waste within biodegradable film. The waste is then stored in a cartridge beneath the toilet, for periodic emptying, which can be weekly or daily, depending upon the levels of usage and capacity.
No. The Loowatt toilet uses a simple, patent-protected mechanical sealing unit to contain human waste within biodegradable film in the most efficient way possible, with a unique odor-inhibiting system. The efficient and odorless toilet provides visitors a pleasant experience compared with existing products.
We have two offices, one in London, UK and one in Antananarivo, Madagascar.

Loowatt was founded in 2009 as the outgrowth of Virginia Gardiner’s industrial design degree project at London’s Royal College of Art (RCA). Her thesis and toilet design addressed a self-assigned brief: “To create a waterless, urban toilet system that turns sh*t into money.”

Today, we have a creative, energetic team working in both United Kingdom and Madagascar. Our multidisciplinary group comprises skills in business management, system modelling, strategy, anaerobic digestion, design and engineering.

Loowatt gained initial support from the Royal College of Art through its InnovationRCA business incubator along with seed funding from private investment. We have since received support from private investors, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the UK Technology Strategy Board.
