Ecosan Toilets

About 150 liters of wastewater at an average is generated by an Indian individual daily, and a large amount of it is generated from toilets. Ecological sanitation (EcoSan) is a sustainable system for handling human excreta by using dry composting toilets. EcoSan toilets not only reduce wastewater generation but also generate the natural fertiliser from recycled human excreta, which forms an excellent substitute for chemical fertilisers. This method is based on the principle of recovery and recycling of nutrients from excreta to create a valuable supply for agriculture. ‘EcoSan’ toilets are being used in several parts of India and Sri Lanka.
