Eco toilet unveiled in Washington


Mount Rainier National Park unveils(除去..面纱/使公诸于众/揭开) a commode(

 便桶/厕所;盥洗间) that uses cedar chips. KOMO's Robert Santos flushes out the story

 

With all the snows still surround the Cougar Rock Campgrounds(野营地/露营场所), there were no visitors inside. But we did find a group of park rangers and some Japanese businessmen celebrating, the opening of a new campground toilet.

So what's the big deal?

Well, this is an eco-friendly toilet. Get this, instead of using chemicals it uses cedar(雪松) chips(碎渣, 木屑) to treat the waste. The heat generated during decomposition(分解/溶解) kills any bacteria, and the waste materials are vaporized( 蒸发;汽化)in one of its tanks. The water used is purified(使纯[洁]净, 净[纯]化) and is re-circulated, so it's like a self-contained(独立的/设备齐全的) sewerage(污水/物) treatment plant.

 The inventor came all the way from Japan for the dedication ceremonies?

"They flew in yesterday... "

 "You never replace the chips. You may add water occasionally but does have a rain-catch system which will add water to the tank, and it's so easy to maintain it."

 "And just like most toilets in Japan, this seat is heated."

" Yeah, trust me, it's also made to be fully flushable, no waste water, no sludge((下水道排出的)污物,污水) and the best part about it, it's odor-free.(无味) "

And it's a gift to Mount Rainier from a Japanese environmental group active on Mount Fuji, which gets more climbers in a day than our mountain gets for the whole summer.

"Now it's about over, over forty units are working in Mount Fuji and been, has contributed to the significant improvement for those waste management in Mount Fuji area."

"You know we have some systems we're experimenting at Camp mere with different solar systems. We have a lot of backcountry use to kind of figure out what's the best and then when they said, they wanted to donate this as a model for us to experiment, well, then it was welcomed."

A seventy thousand dollar gift for all to enjoy.
