Western Railway and green toilets: The human waste in bio-toilets is biologically degraded by anaerobic bacteria and converted to water, methane and carbon dioxide, the Western Railway said in a statement. Unlike traditional toilets which discharge waste on the tracks, bio-toilets treat the waste in a tank below the coaches where it is converted into water and harmless gases. The leftover in the tank is free from harmful germs, it said. (Reuters)
Western Railway and green toilets: Bio-toilets are not only environment friendly but also prevent damage to the railway tracks due to corrosion as well as improve aesthetics at railway stations, the release said. However bio-toilets often get choked and become non-functional due to throwing of objects like plastic bottles, paper
cups, cloth rags, polythene/plastic bags, gutka pouches, nappies etc, it said. (PTI)
