Kerala’s e-toilets have now been been featured in the ‘Yale Environment 360’, an online magazine from the Yale University.

City-based Eram Scientific Solutions, which has developed  the e-toilets, had received a grant worth Rs 3 crore in the second round of the Gates Foundation toilet initiative to continue work on its e-toilet, which employs an anaerobic process to digest waste.

“The e-toilet is a self-contained unit inside a brightly coloured booth that can be situated on a city street. It has already been tested at 300 sites in Kerala, a state with one of India’s best-educated populaces.” reports Yale Environment, Eram Scientific solution said in a statement.  The magazine has featured e-toilets from Eram Scientific as one among the prominent innovations in the health and sanitation sector.


In the capital, two more e-toilets will come up under an initiative of the City Corporation at Central Stadium and  Putharikandam Maidan. This will take the total number of e-toilets in Thiruvananthapuram district up to 20.
