Wockhardt Foundation has launched the 'Bio-Toilet' Programme to improve hygiene among the masses and curtail ailments caused on account of dearth of proper sanitation facilities in the country.
Owing to its wide adaptability, efficient functioning and environment friendly nature, the Bio Toilet is capable of alleviating the issues concerning open defecation in India.
Untreated human waste leads to:
Bio-Toilet is an innovative technology for disposal of solid human waste in an eco-friendly, economical and hygienic manner.
A Bio-Toilet is a complete waste management solution which reduces solid human waste to biogas and pure water, with the help of a bacterial inoculum. The residual water from Bio-Toilet

Bio-Digester is a decomposition mechanized toilet system which decomposes Human Excretory Waste in the digester tank using specific high graded bacteria further converting it into methane and water, discharged further to the desired surface. The Bio-digester is total maintenance-free system, which does not require any sewage system. The inoculums bacteria used in these bio-digester procreate & generate new bacteria in an anaerobic environment & does not require repeat dosing.
Bio-toilet technology is based on anaerobic biodegradation of organic waste by unique microbial consortium and works at a wide temperature range. The bacterial consortium degrades night soil at temp as low as -20 degree C and produces colorless, odorless and inflammable gas containing 50 – 70% methane.
This bacterial consortium has been made through acclimatization, enrichment and bio-augmentation of cold-active bacteria collected from Antarctica and the other low temperature areas.
Bio-digesters have 3 anaerobic chambers that treat Human wastes effectively, and don't require any cleaning or emptying the tank because of its unique systematic structural arrangements.
To start with the very first chamber, where in, the Human wastes arrive from the toilet's outlet, consequently the solids drop to the bottom of the tank because of the systematic structure of the bio-digester tank and the high graded pre residing bacteria (i.e. anaerobic bacteria, which can survive in the absence of oxygen) rushes for their job (i.e. eating away organic waste and decomposing entire occurring pathogens).
When this chamber is filled, the water overflows to the second chamber where more of the same happens, except at this time most of the biological/solid/sludged matter has been left in the first chamber. When the water overflows into the third chamber, it is almost 90% clean and hence the final stage of digestion takes place. The treatment, the task of cleansing water is continuously carried forward from the start to the end point, till the water exits the bio-digester. When the treated water finally comes out from the bio-digester and into our irrigation pipelines (optional if required), it is 98% clean and free from entire pathogens. This water is now safe to be used for underground irrigation via pipes buried below the surface. However, the treated water should not be used for human or animal consumption, or for household cleaning without going through additional treatment.
Bio-toilet are suitable for sub zero temperature of Himalayan Region, Railway coaches, Buses, Highways, Remote areas, seaports, Mining area, Industrial areas, cities etc.
It is very easy and quick process to install a bio-digester because it does not require any special equipment or any kind of sewage system. It only needs to dig a trench (in accordance to the Bio-digester tank size) into the desired ground/surface and place the bio-digester tank into that trench, further fixing of inter-connections (i.e. from the commode's outlet till the Bio-digester tanks outlet).
There is no such requirement of after sales for our Bio-toilet systems as the systems are totally maintenance free. This is why these systems are in huge demand all over the country.
