There are an estimated 100 million households in India that do not have access to toilets and 50% of people are forced to defecate in the open, posing health and safety hazards, and environmental issues. Open defecation also contaminates local water supplies. To address the problem Banka Bioloo provides “on-site” human waste treatment facilities, using its environmentally-friendly toilets. The toilets use bio-digester technology (patented by the Indian Defence) that ‘eats-away’ waste and produces biogas that can be made into fuel and pathogen-free effluent water.
