Zero waste toilet system for Trichi

Inspired by the motive of ending open defecation and of encouraging the public to follow environment-friendly solid waste management, a Zero Waste Toilet System (ZWTS) has been launched for the first time in India in Evoor village near Musiri at Tiruchirapalli.

Inaugurated in Evoor village near Musiri by District Collector Jayashree Muralidharan, the integrated urine diversion biogas linked flush toilet has five modules: a flush-out toilet, a bathroom, a urine diversion bowl, a cultivated wetland for treating bathroom water and a biogas plant. The user-friendly ZWTS provides the family with urine for irrigating the farm, biogas for cooking and slurry from the biogas unit which is an excellent manure.
