DungBeetle

Closing the Natural Loop of Poop with Dry Toilets

Pitch

We provide a sustainable way to do the most natural thing in the world.
Our DungBeetle Dry Toilets work without water, nevertheless, user comfort is at the highest possible standard. There is no unpleasant smell or other inconveniences, it is the adequate toilet for everyone, everywhere!
Instead of contaminating drinking water with excrement, we mimic the natural nutrient cycle. Composting is a save and eco-friendly way of dealing with human waste, and it produces valuable organic fertilizer for food production.
By reestablishing this fundamental cycle, greenhouse gas emissions and energy input can be reduced tremendously in wastewater treatment and fertilizer production. This has wide ranging implications, water can be used more effectively, fertilizers are available locally at a fair price and nature is not exposed to environmental threats.
