Bio Toilets: Sustainable Solution for Sanitation (E)
Bio toilets treat human waste at source. Water and biogas are the only discharges that can be put to many uses, if desired. In India, development of bio-toilet is a great success story scripted by premier scientific institution, the Defence Research and Development Organization, DRDO. Bio toilets offer a sustainable, simple and safe solution to this demanding challenge. Bio toilets are based on bio-digester technology originally developed by DRDO’s research lab in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh. Bio toilets are hailed as cost-effective, environment friendly and more efficient as compared to other decentralized human waste technologies.
