Water technology companies: Seven start-ups bringing tech to the tap

A member of the Imagine H2O 2018 accelerator programme, change: WATER Labs is creating a portable toilet that does not require water and evaporates 95% of sewage without using energy.

The toilet produced by the Cambridge, Massachusetts-based firm is designed for those in poor, remote areas of the world that can’t access plumbing or power.

The company claims 2.6 billion people have yet to gain access to a flushable toilet, and one billion defecate openly.
