Specialized in toilets in difficult and unconnected areas since 1991, Sanisphere has developed numerous innovations to provide durable, simple and robust sanitation solutions to withstand the difficulties of public areas (high traffic, degradation...).
Sanisphere proposes today 2 solutions for the international, either for weak frequentation with the Sanimagine which can be sent in Kit and install by a local actor with manufacture of the cabin on the spot (Community toilet, beach toilet, tourist zone...), or a solution "turn-key" in container for blocks of toilets in zone of very strong frequentation (urban market, stop of bus...)
On the other hand, Sanisphere is working on an intermediate toilet solution to complete its export range and wishes to partner with actors of the cooperation to have a better understanding of the context and to adapt its products to bring effective and durable solutions in the areas that need it the most.
Sanisphere also innovates in the management of toilets with the development of system of management by the users and facilitation of business management for the manager of the toilet block.
In short Sanipshere is open to collaboration on all projects that require public toilets to develop solutions closer to the need while valuing its experience of difficult context and simple solutions (low-tech) robust and sustainable!

  1. Identify areas of need for public toilets (with knowledge of local institutional actors) and collaborate to support a transfer of competence to a local organization for the installation, maintenance and eventually the local manufacture of toilets in Africa and Asia.
  2. Definition of the specifications of the target need to feed the innovation and the development of specific product of the zoner requesting public toilets.
  3. Work on the Maghreb area for the development of toilet solutions in the context of "washing VS wiping" and therefore with more water and no paper.
  4. Collaboration to develop solutions to take into account the user's opinion and feedback to allow better management of the toilet and ensure continuous quality control for citizens, the toilet manager and his employees but also to give visibility to institutions and donors.
  5. Collaboration for research/action projects on the valorization of fertilizing materials (Urine and vermicompost or other forms) for circular economy projects allowing to close the nitrogen and nutrient cycle in a local and healthy way.

Working together for public relief for everyone, everywhere, all the time!
