Welcome

Welcome to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene team’s Transformative Sanitation Technology Directory. The goal of the WSH team is to enable universal access to sustainable sanitation, and the tech directory supports that goal by considering technologies in the portfolio context and encouraging collaboration and information sharing.

This online interface contains information about sanitation technologies that have been developed with support from the Gates Foundation. Navigating through the directory will enable you to view information about each of the technologies. The information is organized into three categories: complete systems, processing technologies, and enabling components.

We hope that this platform will help you identify potential technologies for licensing or partnership, evaluate individual sub-systems for integrating your own portfolio, explore complementary technologies such as menstrual hygiene management systems or novel toilet interfaces, or identify technologies that will meet the needs of your city, building, or other use case.
