Located in São Paulo, the largest city in Brazil, Arena de São Paulo is due to become the home of the local team Sport Club Corinthians Paulista. TOTO was chosen on the basis of its superior water-saving technology and energy-saving credentials. With so many visitors from all over the world using its products, TOTO is hoping to increase recognition of the TOTO brand, whilst at the same time contributing to the growth and development of Brazil.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY PRODUCTS
Water-saving toilets have to flush properly with a small amount of water, whilst also being durable enough to be used in public facilities. Another key point is to save energy, given that it is in continual use. Products used inside the stadium include the Aqua-Auto Series, which starts and stops water using environmentally friendly power generating technology, and sensor systems with automatic flushing capabilities, to reduce wasted water.
