Loowatt’s CEO Virginia Gardiner and COO Polly Gardiner participated in the GSMA Mobile World Congress #MWC16 where “mobile leaders gather, collaborate and conduct business”. We presented the award-winning Loowatt waterless energy-generating toilet technology at the Showcase Stage for Emerging Markets, and the Mobile for Development Seminar & Jumpstart.

As part of the GSMA M4D Utilities grant, Loowatt is now rolling out a mobile app in Madagascar that will help us improve efficiency while tracking the safe movement of waste from household toilets on its short but crucial journey to locally sited waste-to-energy treatment centers.

“We believe that sanitation businesses have a lot to learn from mobile networks. Some of the biggest challenges across the FSM sector are about improving efficiency, and providing regulatory assurance across the sanitation value chain that waste is being handled properly.” – Virginia Gardiner, GSMA blog
