E Toilet
Thiruvananthapuram, Jan 20: The God's own country, Kerala will be the first state in India to connect with 450 functional e-toilets by the end of this fiscal, which would be on par with health and hygiene standards of developed countries.

An e-toilet has an automated door opening, power flushing, automatic closet washing and sterilisation and automatic platform-cleaning mechanism. All facilities will be maintained by SMS alerts to inform a control room about the status of water tank and bio gas plant in the event of any errors or failures.

The sophisticated product has been developed by Kerala based Eram Scientific Solutions Pvt Ltd, a part of Eram Group which has operational comportment in India, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.

The e-toilet has a bio-membrane reactor, which is a nano-technology-aided device that instantly recycles the used water and makes it ready for future use. The cost of an e-toilet varies from Rs.350,000 to Rs.850,000 with a average life span of around 7-10 years, but the exact cost will depend on manufacturing materials like fibre, metal sheets, stainless steel, MS pillars and a combination of the said materials.

E-toilet has the ability to flush the toilet after use and the system automatically does all the cleaning operations. It could also be remote-controlled for cleaning.
