Cécile Dekeuwer, President of WeCo, had the opportunity to present the technology of her new model of toilets, the solutions they provide and its growth prospects. Indeed, WeCo is an innovative alternative to chemical and dry toilets: they combine water and cost savings, user comfort, flexibility and hygiene. Wastewater is recycled on site through an electrolysis system that allows infinite reuse of water. To develop its sales in Europe and abroad, WeCo is counting on market opportunities (the innovative toilet market will represent USD 6 billion by 2030 according to BCG) and on its fundraising of EUR 2 million in 2020. The latter will aim to develop WeCo’s sales force, sales in emerging countries as well as the provision of rental services. In addition, WeCo is on the verge of developing its unique technology for train toilets, a promising market.
