Bila maji Choo - Swahili for Waterless toilet.

The designer of the moladi construction technology has designed a unique and patented waterless toilet system to enhance the product offering in Africa and the rest of the world. 

Many developments have no infrastructure such as bulk sewage works and this delays the development of homes. 

Hennie Botes has always been a "solve the problem" person and the newly designed Bila maji Choo will change the lives of millions of people for the better.

In South Africa children have to go into the bush to relieve themselves - The Bila maji Choo is simple to install and requires no chemicals.

It is our goal to make the Bila maji Choo the most cost effective waterless toilet on the market, allowing access to the majority of people without proper sanitation.

Reasons for keeping urine and faeces separate in a UDDT (Urine Diverting Dry Toilet) compared to a pit latrine is to
reduce odour (mixing urine and faeces together causes substantial odour)


Advantages of a urine-diverting dry toilet or Waterless toilet
1. To save water – when there is either water scarcity
2. To prevent pollution of surface water or groundwater
3. To enable safe reuse of excreta, after drying or composting
4. To enable reuse of urine as a nutrient-rich fertilizer



Bill Gates talks toilets

Bill Gates toilets
Bill Gates thinks toilets are a serious business, and he’s betting big that a reinvention of this most essential of conveniences can save a half million lives and deliver $200 billion-plus in savings. “Our goal is to be at 5 cents a day of cost.” 




“I never imagined that I’d know so much about poop,” Gates said in remarks prepared for the Beijing event. “And I definitely never thought that Melinda would have to tell me to stop talking about toilets and fecal sludge at the dinner table.”



Holding a beaker of human excreta that, Gates said, contained as many as 200 trillion rotavirus cells, 20 billion Shigella bacteria, and 100,000 parasitic worm eggs, the Microsoft Corp co-founder explained to a 400-strong crowd that new approaches for sterilizing human waste may help end almost 500,000 infant deaths and save $233 billion annually in costs linked to diarrhea, cholera and other diseases caused by poor water, sanitation and hygiene.

‘Substantial Market’
Without cost-effective alternatives to sewers and waste-treatment facilities, urbanisation and population growth will add to the burden. In some cities, more than half the volume of human waste escapes into the environment untreated.

Every dollar invested in sanitation yields about $5.50 in global economic returns, according to the World Health Organisation.
“Human waste that is properly handled can be a very economically attractive investment due to the health benefits,” said Guy Hutton, a senior adviser for water, sanitation and hygiene with Unicef in New York, in an interview.

“Given the unmet need of 2.3 billion people still without basic sanitation, there is a potentially very substantial market and economic gain to be had.”

‘Golden Opportunity’
“Innovative companies have a golden opportunity to do well by doing good.” “We can help jump-start a new era of safe sanitation for the 21st century by developing solutions that can leapfrog today’s existing infrastructure, functioning anywhere and everywhere.”
