Dry toilets

The region of the City of Pune has long dry seasons. Therefore it is only logic to use non-water toilet systems to secure local resources and to reduce the problems of the huge undersupply of sanitation systems in India.




An important part of Dry Toilets is the separation of fluids (urine) and fazies. These components can be reused for fertilizer or other possible uses such as gas or coal production which all strengthen the local economy.




The Sketch show the construction design of the dry toilets. The elevated structure enables an easy exchange of the biomass and limits the accmulations of odors through the ventilation pipes.
