Kashmir to get e-toilets
Kochi,Dec 9: Kerala's own electronic toilets (e-toilets), one of the prominent innovations of the state in public health, hygiene and sanitation sector, would now be set up in Kashmir. A 2.5 ton container loaded with the e-toilet and STP components would be leaving from Thiruvananthapuram to JK on Monday.
Pioneered by Eram Scientific Solutions, the Thiruvananthapuram based scientific R&D firm, the e-toilets for JK region have been customized as per the region's own geographical and sub-zero climatic conditions in response to J&Ks Tourism Department’s request for setting up e-toilets in the State.
The e-toilets would be set up at Affarwat and Gulmarg. Affarwat is one of the world's highest locations which uses cable car using gondolas at a height of over 4000 ft above sea level and the only one location in the world that takes skiers to a height of 4,390 metres.
In addition to the e-toilets, specifically designed STPs (Sewage Treatment Plants) would also be set up at Dal Lake to address its waste treatment woes.
Eram Scientific has designed customized e-toilets which can function in sub-zero temperatures, even at minus 55 Degrees Celsius. In order to function at this sort of extreme cold temperatures, military grade equipments have been used in the customized e-toilet model.
Eram Scientific has successfully implemented over 400 e-toilets in various parts of the country.
