Self Sustainable Bio- Toilets from IIT Kharagpur

Education Information

Kolkata: IIT Kharagpur developed self sustainable bio toilets. This toilets recycle the water for its use and also generates electricity. The project had received honours from the Prime Minister Narendra Modi  at  the Swachh Bharat Award event.

The scientists have already built a test case, funded by the Department of Science & Technology (DST) of the Union government. The model, with a capacity of 1500 litre, has been installed on the institute's campus.

The bioelectric toilet consists of a six-chambered reactor, in which the waste water will be rotated in clockwise and anti-clockwise directions for its reuse. The water will also generate power and light up the toilet cabin at night, besides charging smart devices such as mobiles and tablets.

The National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) has asked the scientists to set up a prototype of the self-sustainable toilet in rural Noida.
