About us

Diverting towards change

We aim to guarantee a sustainable, environmentally friendly and affordable toilet solution for everyone. By offering our TROBOLO® composting toilets we would like to make this water-saving and odourless way of going to the toilet available to as many people as possible around the world. On top of that, we place particular emphasis on maintaining high quality standards and meeting the expectations of our customers in terms of comfort.

We are committed to using resources sparingly and efficiently, starting with production, waterless and chemical-free use, all the way to the full recyclability of our products at the end of their use. In doing so, we show our deepest respect for nature, our planet and all the creatures that live on it.

NO MATTER WHERE AND HOW YOU LIVE
This is our TROBOLO®

Using a TROBOLO® composting toilet while travelling saves you the hassle of searching for the nearest toilet. Your TROBOLO® is always with you and ensures odourless and sustainable disposal thanks to its separation of solids and liquids when using the toilet. Whether in a mobile home, garden shed, backyard garden or on a houseboat – a TROBOLO® provides absolute autonomy and works even without water or electricity.

WE KNOW WHAT WE‘RE TALKING ABOUT
The brain behind TROBOLO®

Our company founder Friedrich Lange knows the challenge of disposing of toilet waste in an environmentally friendly way from his own experience. For years, he travelled across Europe and Africa in his “Emma”, a Mercedes 809 that he had converted himself. Although the landscapes, the climate and the cultures changed from country to country, one thing always remained the same: the problem of going to the toilet and the ecologically correct disposal of one’s own waste.

Sustainability is everyone’s job

Living and travelling in a camper van is still one of my greatest passions. I just wanted to be self-sufficient and completely free, to explore foreign cultures and at the same time reduce the environmental impact as much as possible. Thus, I had to find a simple and practical solution to the question of an eco-friendly toilet – and that’s how the first TROBOLO® prototypes were created in 2010, made from recycled scrap wood at a campsite in the south of France.

WAIT A MINUTE, WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH YOUR NAME?
What does TROBOLO® stand for?

Simply put, our name is short for TROckenBiOLOkus. Our composting toilets work without water – i.e. TROcken (engl.: dry), they have been manufactured sustainably and are environmentally friendly – i.e. BiO (engl.: eco-friendly). And since our roots are in Lower Saxony, where we sometimes bid farewell with a “I’m off to the loo!”, LOkus (engl.: loo). By the way, the colloquial term Lokus (engl.: loo) is derived from the Latin locus neccessitatis and means something like “the place of need”.
