DRDO Bio-Digestible Project Pioneered For High Altitude Soldiers

An evolved DRDO technology to treat biological wastes of soldiers serving in high altitudes of Ladakh and Siachen, is set to radically alter the rural sanitation and decomposition woes of fecal wastes in the plains across the country.

Six twin bio-digester toilets based on the technology was launched by DRDO in a tie-up with FICCI on Sunday, at Dhamra, Odisha, more famously known for the recent launches of various DRDO-developed missiles such as Agni, Akash, Prithvi among several others, from its nearby Wheeler Island test site.

This is a very good thing. Hope this really kicks off awareness of sanitation issues in the country.
