An end-to-end service model for governments, utilities, and industries 


 The Safisana recycling plant is a cost-saving, fully serviced all-in-one solution for sustainable treatment of wastewater, solid waste and faecal sludge management. To promote and ensure long-term impact, we adopt an holistic approach that captures all end-to-end points on the value chain (design, build, financing, operation and transfer) across the business and plant development process. We are ready to replicate and currently exploring opportunities to work on co-location with existing wastewater utilities and developing systems with food processing industries 

The value proposition 

A Safisana recycling plant is locally managed and remotely supported by a team of experts in the Netherlands, and can serve communities larger than 100,000 people. The initial investment required for the design and construction of the plant is predominantly supported by contributions of donor parties, governmental bodies and loans from international finance institutions or commercial banks. The technology installed is low tech, easy to operate and cost-effective to maintain. All operational costs are covered by sales of end-products: electricity (to energy companies), bio fertiliser (to local farmers), fresh food production (to local community).
