Our deployable toilet and waste processing systems provide off-grid sanitation and energy production for remote or off-grid communities.
BioSan is designed to bring safe sanitation to those hard-to-reach places, providing critical infrastructure where other solutions are infeasible or too expensive. Our systems are ideal for places such as refugee camps, informal settlements, remote construction sites.
Alongside fully treating human waste, our system processes spent food such as market waste and livestock waste. These are packed full of energy, which our BioSan range converts into usable biogas for on-site applications such as fuel for cooking.
Our BioSan range is adaptable, operating as stand-alone systems by providing inbuilt toilet access, or working alongside existing sanitation interventions with our BioSan Core decentralised treatment system.

BioSan 5 is a rugged, easily deployable, off-grid toilet and waste treatment plant. It is simple to maintain and completely self-contained in a standard 20ft shipping container. The system provides clean, safe and comfortable toilet facilities for up to 250 users, alongside clean cooking fuel for up to 120 users.
The system supercharges the natural microbial process to convert human and food waste into energy, which can replace charcoal as a primary cooking fuel. The secondary output of the process is a safe to use soil conditioner which improves local crop yields and reduces environmental impact from chemical fertilisers.
BioSan 5 is totally self-sufficient, suitable for rural or centralised locations, producing localised energy for heating, cooking or power. The system is adaptable, operating as a stand alone unit, or working alongside pre-existing sanitation solutions as a localised treatment plant for various collection based programs.
BioSan Core is our standalone Waste-to-Energy treatment facility, with all the processing wizardry of BioSan 5, just without the toilets. Like our other BioSan products, BioSan Core has an off-grid design that is built to be deployed anywhere!
BioSan Core is ideal for clients with pre-existing sanitation programs, or in the deployment of new projects. Our low-cost systems increase revenue generation compared to other models by selling valuable energy directly to users, from within the community. BioSan Core further decreases operating costs through its decentralised nature as transportation of waste between communities and centralised treatment facilities is no longer needed!
BioSan Core is perfect for Container Based Sanitation (CBS) programs or micro-sewer systems, and is very versatile and readily adaptable to suit bespoke installations.
Our BioSan systems are designed to provide sustainable toilets for refugee camps, informal settlements and other places where improved toilets aren't available.
Through use of our BioSan products, clean energy is generated on-site in the form of biogas - a great cooking fuel to replace harmful charcoal.
Charcoal harvesting has a devastating environmental and economic impact in developing nations. By replacing charcoal with biogas, deforestation is reduced.
