Waterless urinals trigger chemical bombs in order to dispose of urine. This or that way another stereotype
comes along which Waterless Germany definitively refutes.
Here comes the truth: The decisive part of a Waterless urinal, the siphon, can function without the use of ecologically damaging
chemical products. The sealing liquid sealing the urine is completely bio-degradable.
The immense savings in drinking water due to the use of a Waterless urinal are highly reasonable with regard to the environment.
An easy calculation may clarify this: In the industrial sector, every conventional basin replaced by a Waterless urinal on the
average saves about 50,000 liters of water per year. A medium-sized German railway station with 8 urinals saves up to 1 million
liters per year.
(High savings in water also mean savings in energy of some hundred kilowatt hours per year and urinal,
if you include processing, transportation and waste water treatment.)
Waterless doesn't make use of tensides and acids because the system functions without acid cleaners and toilet active tablets.
This means: less toxic matter in our ground water and a considerable reduction in water pollution. The manufacturing,
maintenance and subsequent dismantling of a highly sophisticated automatic flush installation and a supply pipe is not required.
Thus, an unwritten law of ecology says: Environmentally conscious entrepreneurs don't accept conventional urinals.
