Saneavita proposes wastewater treatment systems based on nature; using an evapotranspiration tank (TEVAP) and a circle of banana trees for the sustainable treatment of grey and black wastewater, the devices are perfectly adapted to the conditions of informal settlements and compatible with the physical spaces available.
The company aims to provide alternative solutions for the treatment of black and grey wastewater in areas that lack basic sanitation and/or where conventional sewerage systems are not technically feasible, such as informal settlements and households in rural areas. During its pilot, the team trained 100 people on nature-based sanitation solutions and provided its services to 65 people.
