About Us

Who we are

The BioFactory is a Bath based start-up, designing sanitation solutions for use in refugee camps and rural communities in sub-Saharan Africa. Our mission is to uphold the basic human right of sanitation for all, no matter their situation. 

What we do

We have designed an all-in-one latrine and waste processing plant that utilises biodigestion to convert human waste into cooking fuel and soil conditioner. Our system is rugged and easily deployable without the need for construction, and will be ready to use within an hour.
