Cities are growing faster than ever. Currently, 60 million new residents move to urban areas every year. 25% live in slums, amounting to 1 billion people with inadequate housing and limited access to basic services. This number is expected to double to 2 billion by 2030.
In Kenya, loss of productivity due to illness costs the country 2% of its GDP every year and at current rates, complete sanitation coverage will take 150 years. Sanergy provides non-sewered sanitation solutions that serve all urban residents and are 5 times cheaper than sewers.
