Vinod Anthony Thomas Designing Train Toilets
Vinod has implemented this innovative idea to reduce the problems faced by Railway department. This innovation has taken a positive response from the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cleaning programme “Swachh Bharat Abhiyann”. Designing train toilets is to eradicate the problems erased due to non flushing. One more is disposing of human waste on tracks which is unhygienic, unhealthy and environment unfriendly.
Waterless, Odourless Train Toilets
Vinod designed water less and odorless train toilets by substituting regular flushing system with conveyor. Use of conveyor is, it holds all the waste in a air tight sealed containers in to a bin. The bin is manually run by crank wheel. The wheel is arranged to decrease the wastage of water by the method of decomposition and evaporation of water.
