Kerala's e-toilets, treatment plants to help sanitise Kashmir

Thiruvananthapuram,Business/Economy,Kashmir, Sat, 08 Dec 2012 IANS

Thiruvananthapuram, Dec 8 (IANS) An e-toilet manufacturer from Kerala will install four sewage treatment plants in Jammu and Kashmir and two customised toilets - one at 4,000 feeet at the Affarwat Peak and the other at the Dal Lake, the company said Saturday.

Eram Scientific Solutions, based here, has customised the toilets according to Kashmir's geography and sub-zero climate.

Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy will Monday flag-off the vehicle loaded with the e-toilets and treatment plants' equipment.

Jammu and Kashmir's tourism director had earlier this year asked Eram to design customised e-toilets which can function in the state's extremely cold climate.

The modified features of the toilets include insulation of the mechanical structure with high density thermocol and polyform insulated water tanks to prevent freezing.

They also have anti-freeze solution mixed water for flushing and floor washing, temperature-controlled water heater in plumbing line of faucet to provide mild hot water, temperature controlled room heater besides aero-tape insulations in all plumbing lines.

The e-toilet is a convergence of web and mobile and electronics technologies and has automated door opening, power flushing, automatic closet washing and sterilisation, and automatic platform cleaning mechanism, all backed by SMS alerts to inform the control room about the status of water tank and biogas plant in the event of errors.

Eram, supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, has already installed around 400 e-toilets across the country.
