At Mosan we believe that a safe sanitation is the most effective way to improve the quality of life and the health of people. Mosan's solution helps to protect the environment and avoids the pollution of water and the environment. Local economy and job opportunities can grow.
This is our credo.
MOSAN HOUSEHOLD TOILET
The Mosan Toilet is an award-winning in-home toilet, designed with the highest technical standards. Ease of use, durability, low maintenance and an aspirational design are important aspects. The design is the result of the participatory process with local communities and international partners.

COLLECTION & TRANSPORT
We provide Mosan customers with a regular collection service at convenient collection points, located in the areas covered by our service.
Users deliver their containers twice a week to our collection points, where our staff is collecting the contents, sanitizes containers and mentains a close relationship with users. After the collection we take care of the transportation from the collection points to our transformation center.
Human excreta contains organic matter, micronutrients and minerals such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, that, once extracted, are immensely beneficial for agriculture.
We separately process urine and feces and transform what is commonly considered as waste into valuable products that can be reintroduced to the local market.
The reuse of human excreta is the final step of the sanitation system. As a result of our process, we currently obtain two products: biochar and struvite. Biochar is a charcoal product that can be used as a soil amendment, improving soil quality and it can help sequester CO2, absorbing it into the soil acting as a “Carbon Sink” greatly reducing greenhouse gases globally. Struvite, a phosphorus mineral, can be directly applied in agriculture as a fertilizer.
We promote awareness on water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) in order to accelerate behavioral change. Our methods of conveying information are based on direct community involvement, educational events, and creative workshops.
Our products are co-created with local communities. We impulse innovation through Design Thinking – a process for creative problem solving – involving users at different stages of the project, from the identification of needs to the creation of a customized service to fit the specific reality, culture, and context.
