A Student Solved A Major Problem By Designing ‘Waterless And Odourless Toilets’ For Railways

Published on 17 June, 2016 at 10:48 pm By

In line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Clean India Initiative’, Vinod Anthony Thomas, a student of Manipal University, has designed waterless and odourless toilets for Indian Railways.

He along with his team bagged second prize of Rs 75,000 at an all-India competition of the India Railways, organized by Research Designs and Standards Organization, Lucknow.

Thomas designed the toilet keeping in mind problems like disposal of human waste on the tracks which, according to him, is ‘unhygienic, unethical and damaging to the environment’.

 

 

His design replaces the system of flushing toilets with water by a conveyor system which carries waste in a hermetically sealed pocket to a large collection bin to store waste.



It runs manually by a crank wheel and the bin has been designed to reduce waste of water by means of decomposition and forced ventilation (evaporation of water).
