      About the company

      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.
