About Us

Welcome To Pennine

We’re here to help your sanitation company, school or community save money, the environment, and lives.

Why Are We

We believe all people deserve sustainable sanitation that is both dignified and green.

Our Mission

To help solve the global sustainable sanitation crisis.

Helping people in rural areas and temporary settlements.

Affording users with an alternative toilet to waterborne sanitation, chemical toilets and pit latrines.

What We Do

Help portable sanitation providers (PSPs) save 70% of their logistics costs.

Provide the SavvyLoo, a waterless desiccating toilet, as a turn-key solution to pit latrine conversion and chemical toilets.

Our History

Pennine Energy Innovations, the team behind the SavvyLoo, is a bunch of experienced engineers, successful start-up drivers and social impact-enhancers.

Based in South Africa, we realised the need for innovative, high-impact social interventions for some of the world’s most basic requirements: food, electricity, sanitation, water, dignity.

Our focus is on helping communities grow sustainable, profitable enterprises using high-tech, high social impact, green solutions to their most basic needs.

We’d love hearing your¬†story, and seeing how we can partner together to make tomorrow a bright, dignified future!

With love,

Dudley, Richard & Theo; The Pennine Team
