PUCP and Sanima join forces to strengthen Container-Based Sanitation (CBS) service that benefits over 7,500 people in Lima

In a joint initiative reflecting the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru’s (PUCP) commitment to equity in access to basic services and sustainable development, the Specific Collaboration Agreement between the Faculty of Science and Engineering at PUCP and Sanima was formalized on April 18, 2024.

This agreement focuses on generating innovations to strengthen and enhance the efficiency of Sanima's CBS service operations. As part of the ‚ÄúCollaborative Mechatronic Projects with Industry‚ÄĚ program, fourth and fifth-year students from the Mechatronics Engineering specialty at PUCP‚Äôs Faculty of Science and Engineering will develop projects aimed at addressing the challenges faced by Sanima in its operations. Some of these projects are related to process automation, reducing ergonomic risks for the collection team, and improving the toilet facilities used by households.

The projects developed jointly by the students and Sanima will positively impact the CBS service received by more than 7,500 people living in over 1,500 households in the human settlements of San Juan de Miraflores, Villa El Salvador, and Villa María del Triunfo. This collaboration will take place over two years.
