Aiming for...JBP introduces various Bosai Solutions of JBP member companies.
Today, we introduce about the activity of Excelsior Inc. which deal with portable toilets called "Mt. Fuji Toilet".
--Installing Portable toilets as infrastructure in all around tourist spots
Excelsior, Inc. started its business in April 1997 in Tokyo, Japan and has established itself in providing environmental services in Japan. We specialize in products for natural disasters, emergencies and outdoor living. We also contribute to dehalogenation processes to treat dioxins and PCBs contamination effectively.
Since 2005, we have invented portable toilets for disaster. Now, “Mt. Fuji Toilet” has been delivered to disaster areas such as The Great East Japan Earthquake, Kumamoto Earthquake and so on as government procured supplies.
‘Mt. Fuji Toilet’ is a portable toilet with a poncho which is a tablet type of treatment agent fromTreatment tablet.
We think Mt. Fuji Toilet which can be put to use for mountainous areas. Mt. Fuji Toilet has been delivered in Mt. Fuji for free working with Yamanashi preferectual office since 2014. We have spread portable toilets working with Norikura Tourism association of Northen Alpes since 2015 and installing Mt. Fuji Toilet vending machines.
Mt. Fuji Toilet is not only emergency supplies but aiming for spreading it at tourist spots.
The key words are Mountains and islands!
--Salar de Uyuni in South America
We would like to introduce you about the project since we have worked on since last year.
In 2018, we were adopted by Non-Project Grant Aid for SMEs. We delivered ten thousand pieces of portable Mt. Fuji Toilet in Peru. Since then, there was a consult from Bolivia branch of JICA that examined that it would be applicable to use Mt. Fuji Toilet in Salar de Uyuni. We served samples for demonstration testing in Salar de Uyuni. The products were evaluated that it was easy to use with no odors after use in Salar de Uyuni and 6000 meters class mountains. I visited Bolivia to have a conference to discuss practical stage in February of this year.
--Business Scheme Bolivia at Salar de Uyuni in South America
What we are thinking about business scheme this time, we would like to incorporate portable toilet cost into tour fee. From Japan, normal tour fee is between 5 hundred thousand and 7 hundred thousand dollars. It should not be a problem even if it would add extra fee of portable toilets for protecting environment at Salar de Uyuni. Moreover, we received good reviews when we made a proposal about a part of portable toilets donate for protecting local environment. We can use the products after usage which will become soil and fertilizer. From the points, we have been planning to use it as main farm products in Quinua.

--Sustainable Tourism development From Toilets
It is concerned and predicted that water will be exhausted faster than oil in the future. According to SDGs, they put safe water into 6th in the project which is to deliver safe water and toilets all over the world. It is shown that we can save safe water when we have hygienic toilets.
The major feature about our products is to be able to dispose defecations by chemical treatment agents. By this, we can serve hygienic toilets without electricity, water and sewer services, and large machinery. We believe that we have technology that meets the world trends as chemical fuels free and DeCO2.
About developing countries, they have a dilemma that tourism industry has a tool to receive foreign currency from many tourists who have possibilities to destroy beautiful nature as tourism resources.
We would like to proceed business scheme as our mission in order to protect environment and contribute sustainable tourism industry from the perspective of toilets.

How to save people from earthquake and tsunami in Ghana
Last year in August, we visited for the first time and decided to meet with the earthquake committee formed by the president, which is a group of government organizations, to offer cooperation to said entity while donating eight of our EQguard devices. In November, we visited again, installed three units at GGSA (Ghana Geological Survey Authority) and NADMO (National Disaster Management Organization), while also enabling seismic observations using a small server installed at the GGSA Center.
Upon this second opportunity, in an area near the epicenter, we conducted a practical evacuation drill with alarms under government, UNESCO Accra office and the host community cooperation; the drill was very well received by the participants, comprising some 100 locals. Vernacular newspapers and TV stations also visited to cover and offer press.
GGSA is continuing its efforts to protect the Ghanaian people from earthquakes through earthquake early warnings as well as seismic observations, centered on Accra, in addition to working within the government, including through the Minister of Interior.
I would therefore like to visit and cooperate with them as soon as I can enter Ghana.
Over the years, the Ghanaians have been taking records of earthquakes, fault locations, etc. and have an earthquake countermeasure plan. Above all, they have a strong will to afford protection from earthquakes to people. Our company, Challenge, hopes by means of this opportunity to cooperate upon turning this Ghanaian fervor into actual results.
