Loowatt in South Africa
Loowatt's technology provides urban communities in South Africa with aspirational sanitation solutions, and enables the co-transformation of faecal and organic waste to valuable by-products.
The first service, branded as Kalula, was launched in Durban in 2023, with significant uptake from communities.
“Loowatt's innovative technology is a game-changer in South Africa by proving that people truly value high-quality toilets at home through paid services.”
