Railways to roll out five trains with bio-digestive toilets

To ensure hygienic railway tracks,the rail coach factory in Kapurthala is set to roll out five long-route trains fitted with bio-digestive toilets.

To ensure hygienic railway tracks,the rail coach factory (RCF) in Kapurthala is set to roll out five long-route trains fitted with bio-digestive toilets. The new system will not only avoid manual scavenging of human waste from rail tracks but also be hygienic,as the waste will be converted into gas and water.

Earlier,bio toilets were fitted in around 50 coaches of different trains for testing purpose. But now,the new five trains will only have bio toilets.

“Unlike traditional toilets in trains,where the waste used to get accumulated on tracks,the new system will treat the waste inside a tank with the help of a bacteria,which will convert it into harmless gas and water,” said Rajnish Bansal,secretary to the RCF general manager.

“Different types of non pathogenic bacteria strains will be injected into these tanks and the bacteria will digest the human waste to produce water and gas,” he added.
