SAFAIGIRI AWARDS 2019

TECH ICON Award for ``Zero Discharge Toilet System (ZDTS)``

The ZDTS toilets may look like conventional mobile toilets, but the collection and processing of water is entirely different. The solid and liquid matter are segregated by a separator fixed under the toilet seat. The liquid is clarified and treated to be used for flushing purposes, thus avoiding the use of freshwater for flushing, while the solids are converted into quality organic manure using vermicomposting
