Host Country: KenyaJCM Feasibility Study (FS)

Energy Saving by Micro Flush Toilet

Implementing Entity: LIXIL Corporation

Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

This study is aimed at reducing energy-related treatment water and waste water as well as contributing to water saving and environmental improvement by installing super-water-saving toilets (11,200 toilet units) developed by LIXIL Corporation into the low-cost housing project (5,600 house units) of the National Housing Corporation (NHC) in Kenya.
