Namita Banka - Founder & CEO
Banka BioLoo is a human waste management company, providing sustainable solutions for sanitation and waste water for rural and urban areas.
Problem: Lack of
adequate sanitation solutions in our country leads to water and environment
pollution causing major health issues, more so among children and women. Open
defecation and manual scavenging is a big blot on our economy. For many,
primarily in rural areas, there is a belief “house is a temple”, many houses
don’t build toilets in/near house. Lack of drainage infrastructure due to
dependency on civic bodies is another problem.
Solution: We offer
complete sanitation solutions from installation of toilets to waste treatment
and management. We use robust bio-technology for the treatment of human waste
at source and different structures for the toilet unit.
Impact: About 630
million people need toilets in rural and urban areas and have been denied this
basic facility due to various reasons. Socio-environmental impact created till
date - 3 million liters of water recycled, 100,000 kg of human waste treated,
5,000 people stopped defecting in open. In the next 10 years, we aim to provide
sanitation facilities to 1 million.
Investment Needed: Undisclosed
