Arab Startup Competition Fourteenth Edition 2021: Social Entrepreneurship Track - Finalist


AKYAS is a Turn-key solution that functions as a low-cost, low-resource, and easily deployable non-sewered sanitation system. The mission of AKYAS is to bring low-cost sanitation to the base of the pyramid population regionally and globally, especially those with lack of access to safe sanitation such as displaced populations, high-dense slum households or other water-scarce communities.

AKYAS innovates for a back-end toilet system that consumes zero water, zero energy and requires no infrastructure. It provides an onsite treatment that effectively isolates faecal waste for reduction of pathogens in the environment, through the use of a specially developed powder mix that kills pathogens rapidly, in combination with multiple-use organic compostable toilet bags. AKYAS back-end unit can be adapted to fit any front-end solution.
