      AKYAS was founded with the aim to reduce mortality and morbidity from diarrheal diseases in areas where people lack proper sanitation. They offer alternative sanitation solutions composed of a single-use biodegradable bag that isolates human waste from flowing to the environment, a mineral powder that rapidly kills pathogen in faeces, transforming it into safe organic fertilizer, and a hand sanitizer that eliminates the use of water yet maintains hand hygiene. Currently the team is in a dialogue with a train manufacturer to explore further collaboration possibilities.
