Israel, JERUSALEM

A fine for uncollected dog feces six years ago prompted the founders of Israeli company Paulee Cleantec to create a solution that is now being used to develop the world’s first water-free toilet.

Paulee Cleantec just signed a deal with the Bill and Melinda Gate Foundation to take technology designed for dealing with pet waste and adapt it for the purpose of creating a water-free toilet for 2 billion people in the developing world who do not have access to clean water or sanitation.
