Innovation doesn’t stop with a home’s building essentials such as the roof, walls or windows. Even the humble toilet can be the subject of change, with companies offering variations in design for the benefit of homeowners as well as the environment.
Norway-based Cinderella Eco Group is one such company who has been active in this space, offering an easy-to-use, easy-to-install plumbing-free solution with its Cinderella Incineration Toilet.
For more than 20 years, the award-winning Cinderella Incineration Toilets have been providing owners of homes, cottages and cabins with a safe and simple-to-use waste solution that does not require water, plumbing or the hassle of a disruptive renovation upon installation.
According to the company, there are more than 65,000 units now in use across Scandinavia.
‘Our toilets are so popular because they are among the lowest-maintenance available, require no water or drainage connection, and are odourless, hygienic and quiet to use,’ says Helene Norman-Dupuy, director sales and aftermarket for Cinderella Eco Group.
‘With no plumbing or drainage required, Cinderella Incinerating Toilets can be installed practically anywhere. All that is required for operation is electricity and a vent pipe to the exterior.’
Other than inserting a bowl liner for each use, and periodically emptying the ash, incinerating toilets operate much like conventional ones. Cinderella’s large capacity units can handle three to four visits per hour.
The product also serves as an alternative option to septic systems which can leak and contaminate the environment. With an incinerating toilet all waste is reduced to hygienic ash.
By eliminating the need for plumbing and a septic system for waste disposal, incinerating toilets work out to be a cost-effective solution to the building and construction industry.
The Cinderella Incineration Toilet would be a relatively unique product in the Australian market, and the Cinderella Eco Group is currently investigating the relevant regulatory requirements that the product needs to meet in order to ensure compliance upon installation.
