Loowatt COO Mary Roach and business development manager Ursula Braun discussed the company's patented flush toilet system that requires no water, and yet is hygienic and odorless in capturing waste for value-generating treatment. The system uses a plug-and-play processing equipment that allows utilities a source of feedstock for diverse waste-to-value streams, including anaerobic digestion (waste-to-energy) and nutrient recovery. Recent implementations include partnerships with local utilities in Laguna (Philippines) and Antananarivo (Madagascar).
