SOWTech are a social enterprise so that we can recycle funds into achieving better lifestyles for those who need it most.

We seek to achieve these aims by combining our own resources; our education, experience and access to research, with those of others to create income earning business opportunities for those living in countries where it is needed most.

Our aim is to design products and process that can change lives for the better.

Western technology for sanitation and waste management cannot be directly transferred into aid and development situations. So the SOWTech team have drawn on their many years experience in organic waste management in both the UK and worldwide to design and develop products and processes with the advantages of western technology but which can be used in low and middle-income countries and in aid situations.

Where appropriate SOWTech are forming partnerships with enterprises who can help to deliver these products.
