Biofil Toilet

Dushtha Shasthya Kendra (DSK) along with two other implementing partners – ICCO Cooperation and International Development Enterprises (iDE) – implemented the project named SanMark CITY – Intelligent Design in Urban Sanitation Marketing during January 2014 to  December 2015 project period. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) provided financial support to the project. “SanMark-CITY” project aimed to explore the potential of four toilet technologies to overcome some of the challenges faced in delivering a sustainable sanitation solution.  The toilet technologies include: (a) Tiger Toilet; (b) Enbiolet; (c) Biofil Toilet System; and (d) Sun-Mar Composting Toilet. The SanMark-CITY project area comprised of six slums/low-income communities of varying sizes and populations situated in Dhaka – Muktijodha Complex, Chatbari, Panchgachia, Bordeshi, Gudharaghat and Nawab-e-bag. Under SanMark-CITY project  15 nos of  Tiger toilets, 15 nos of  Enbiolet toilets, 15 nos of  Biofil toilets, and 5 nos of  Sun-Mar toilets have been installed in the project areas respectively  with necessary “adaptations” to suit local conditions.  Finally Biofil toilet has been suited in local conditions and the community people liked most to use this toilet in their locality. The Biofil digester is a simple compact on-site organic waste treatment system that uniquely combines the benefits of the flush toilet system and those of the composting toilets and eliminates the disadvantages and drawbacks of both systems.
