Public toilet with biogas plant and water kiosk Naivasha, Kenya.  Case study of by Onyango, P., Rieck, C. (2010).  The new public toilet block in a Kenyan bus station consists of 6 stalls, showers, and serves 300 people per day. A biogas plant was constructed to pre-treat the wastewater for reduction of pollution loads released into the sewer system and generation of biogas for cooking in a nearby kiosk.

Our Vision Toilet availability is a human right and well-designed sanitation systems restore health to our cities, our waters and our soils.
