It is a special system in which human excreta from the Sulabh public toilets goes through the biogas digester. When decomposition takes place it produces biogas. Inside the digester biogas is produced due to anaerobic fermentation by the help of methanogenic bacteria. The biogas, thus produced, is stored inside the digester with an inbuilt liquid displacement chamber. After that the students were taken to the toilet museum where they were shown a rare collection of facts, pictures and objects detailing the historic evolution of toilets from 2500 BC till date. They could see a chronological account of developments relating to technology, toilet related social customs, toilet etiquettes, prevailing sanitary conditions and legislative efforts of different times. Students visited toilet museum, faecal sludge division where faecal waste converts into bio-energy and bio-fertilizers.

During the visit, the students got the first-hand experience on various toilet models designed, developed and successfully implemented by the low-cost sanitation. Students also gathered knowledge about the history of toilets from the Indus Valley where a highly developed drainage system existed, to the countries in Europe where most of the early technological developments in the evolution of toilets took place.
