POP UP3 at the Dutch Design Week

EINDHOVEN – October 2012. No, it isn’t a window this girl is looking through. She’s watching a clip about the POP UP3 design, presented on the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. For this occasion we transformed the curve that normally holds the toilet paper into a micro-cinema. The clip shows how the POP UP3 is folded out. For the little girl, this is literally a see-through to a cleaner future.

POP UP3: moving on!

OIRSCHOT – September 2012. After the successful introduction of the vacuum toilets at several Dutch festivals this summer, Mobile Sanitary Solutions is working on further developments in the environmentally friendly POP UP3 concept. “There are so many possibilities in new applications and deployment. The huge savings on transport, water and sewage absolutely justify the high investment costs,” says general manager Peter van Overbeek. “POP UP3 has even aroused interest abroad. This is the new, green standard, I’m sure of it.”

POP UP3 flourishes on hottest Lowlands ever

BIDDINGHUIZEN – 21 August 2012. With temperatures of over 35 degrees, the Lowlands musical festival this summer was the hottest ever. The 55.000 visitors flocked to the free water points in huge numbers. Despite the enormous demand for water, 750.000 liters were saved elsewhere on the festival site. “Thanks to the 250 POP UP3 toilets, we had twenty trucks less driving to the water purification plant this year,” Eric van Eerdenburg says. “We’re allowed to pump off quite a lot of water, but we still need to dispose of sewage water with trucks every year. Thanks to POP UP3, we needed a lot less this year.”

The green heart of Lowlands and the long relationship between rental company Van Overbeek and Mojo Concerts and LOC7000 led to a first test with the vacuum toilets in 2011, at that time still without the foldable construction. According to Van Eerdenburg, the test lived up to all expectations: “The huge savings on water and transport directly benefit the festival and the environment.”

Also in 2013 Tomorrowland will go for POP UP3

BOOM – 27 July 2012. Every year, the Belgian music festival Tomorrowland strives to improve their service to visitors. “2012 was the first year we tried POP UP3, and we believe it’s a very strong and high-quality product. And that is why we will use POP UP3 toilets in 2013 again,” Jurgen Nuytemans tells us. Tomorrowland considers the higher costs of renting this system rather than chemical or traditional toilets to be completely justifiable: “You get even more in return. Better hygiene, the luxury of a restroom where you can sit down, and a highly limited water usage. These are the decisive arguments for us.”

Concert at Sea is the first to choose for POP UP3

BROUWERSDAM - 29 June 2012. Opting for POP UP3 was in fact a logical choice for Concert at Sea; being the first climate-neutral festival in the Netherlands means that it has a reputation to live up to. The organisers of Concert at Sea ordered the vacuum toilets even before the foldable concept was completely finished. “POP UP3 is a very environmental-friendly solution, and we believed in it. The promised savings of 80% on water supply, sewage water and transport were actually realised,” says Gino Spijkerman. “But POP UP3 has practical advantages as well. We now need less buffer tanks for water. We could really use the square meters that were saved this way. Furthermore, the toilets look neat, they’re easy to clean. The festival visitors truly appreciate that. Last summer we even got compliments for this on Facebook. What else do you want?”

A first for POP UP3 on Pinkpop

LANDGRAAF – 26 May 2012. By signing the pink custom-made toilet door, organiser Jan Smeets of Pinkpop confirmed his choice for POP UP3. Smeets had the scoop; Pinkpop was the first music festival in the Netherlands officially to use POP UP3. Smeets wanted to switch to a system with water-flushed toilets for a while now, but the limited water supply made this difficult. POP UP3 had the solution: “In three days we used 36,000 litres of water, that’s 250,000 litres less than usual. A tremendous improvement.” Smeets exhibited his enthusiasm when he said to a journalist at the festival: “Talk to the man behind POP UP3. Thanks to such people, we can keep improving the quality of Pinkpop and limit the sewage.” It goes without saying that we really appreciate this comment!
