SATO was developed as a simple toilet solution in 2012 to address this serious social problem. It is available in over 20 models designed to accommodate the differing conditions found in more than 10 countries. Over 1.8 million units have been delivered to date and have improved the sanitation conditions of around 9 million people. Every model is designed to meet the below needs of developing countries.
