Loowatt toilets have just landed at Arcadia Spectacular, a spectacle of cutting-edge engineering which marks the start of Loowatt's event season in 2018.
Arcadia Spectacular features, among other things, a gigantic robotic spider built from disused military equipment and bursting with pyrotechnics powered by recycled cooking fuel. With its focus on changing the world through state-of-the art technology, uniting people across cultures, generating value from waste, and creating an unforgettable experience along the way, Arcadia couldn’t be a better place for Loowatt to start serving UK customers in 2018.
As humanity looks into the future, what also brings us together is solving our toughest challenges through innovation. Did you know that 80% human waste today is disposed untreated? In other words, 80% of dumps are just dumped. Meanwhile, water scarcity is growing – by 2025, most of the world’s population will live in water-scarce regions. And in cities that have some of the world’s most developed sewage infrastructure, such as New York and London, raw sewage overflows into natural waterways almost every week. What a mess.
So we need new sanitation solutions. And people are stepping up to the challenge – utilities, foundations, companies, researchers and even rocket scientists around the world are working to create toilets and sanitation systems that work without sewers. And in all likelihood, humanity and the planet will benefit: water saved, less pollution, and high-quality sanitation for everyone, everywhere. We are proud to be part of this global community.
This weekend, people in London will use our waterless flush toilets at Arcadia, as part of a futuristic experience. At the same time, a few thousand miles south, our customers in Madagascar will be using the same technology in their homes, as part of everyday life. And in both places, Loowatt waste will be converted to value in anaerobic digestion systems. Which is all to say, the clean future is closer than we think.
