Indian Railways to Have Biodigesters on Trains to Convert Human Waste - India Renewable Energy Consulting – Solar, Biomass, Wind, Cleantech
Select Page

At long last, I get to read something really interesting the Indian public sector is doing – sustainable treatment of human waste, and that too on our Indian Railways.

We all know what happens to the millions of tons of human waste we generate while on trains, especially long distance trains. Isn’t there a better way to manage this waste?

Yes, said DRDO (Defense Research & Development Organization), and they have gone ahead and devised bio-digesters that can be fitted under the coaches and which can hold the human waste from the toilets and convert them into biogas.

I must say this is an invention worth applauding. The first designs of these e-Loos do not look great, but I am sure they will quickly improve and reach the next stage.

Biodigesters on Indian Trains

Jairam Ramesh recently said Indian Railways was the world’s largest open toilet. How true. Hopefully, this invention will move India out of this unenviable first place.
