A Romanian has invented the toilet of the future that does not need water. How much does the prototype cost?

A young man has invented an eco-friendly toilet that has never been seen before. It is environmentally friendly, and the prototype has already been presented abroad.

A young man from Oradea invented the ecological toilet of the future. It uses no water, and all waste is then recycled. The device is already successful abroad, but the inventor hopes that the authorities in his hometown will also be interested in his invention.

Teodor Gomboș created a dry toilet (Arida Cultus). He obtained 25,000 euros of European funds to make the prototype. Its eco-friendly toilet uses no water and can be placed anywhere.

Much more hygienic

It is made of wood and metal and instead of a bowl of water it has one with sawdust. Every time the toilet is used, 250 grams of sawdust is released instead of water. It eliminates unpleasant odors. “In Oradea and in the whole county we lack public toilets. Why not have a toilet in the bus stations in the county, in the parks in the city, not to mention the mountain tourist areas?

It was hard for me to believe, but I discovered that there are few manufacturers of ecological toilets in the world and most of them make those plastic toilets, which we all know and avoid, because they smell bad”, said Teodor Gomboș .

Nothing is lost

In addition, all waste is collected in a bag in a tank located at the bottom of the toilet. Each time it fills up it is replaced. The droppings are then recycled. They can be reused for electricity production.

“The joy of knowing that you have contributed to the quality of life in your city cannot be compared to any other gain. In Bihor, they can also be handed over to the power plant in Săcueni, which uses biomass for the production of electricity”, the young man also told

Teodor Gomboș hopes that his invention will be successful both in the country and abroad. It costs 4,200 euros. Several companies from Poland and Austria showed interest in the prototype.
