Compact EnviroLAV Toilet Provides Space Saving Solution

The EnviroLAV is proving popular in Africa, with the latest sales of two Compact Design units going to Wesizwe Platinum for use at their new Bakubung Platinum mine (BPM).

Located near Pilansberg in North West Province of South Africa, the BPM mine is expected to produce around 420,000 ounces of platinum metals per year. Currently in development phase, the project will comprise of an underground mine with a twin vertical shaft system (a main shaft and a ventilation shaft which will also function as the second escape route), as well as a process plant.

The Compact EnviroLAV toilet is becoming an increasingly popular option for both above and below ground sites throughout Africa due to its small footprint of less than 1.5m2 and portable design. Perfect for sites where space is a limiting factor, the toilet features a 600 Litre waste tank and fold away steps for further maximisation of space.

The compact toilet offers many of the same benefits as the standard design, including:

  • Pneumatic or electric operation
  • Solid steel, corrosion resistant structure
  • Eco-friendly enzymes
  • Durable 10+ year life cycle
  • 12 month emptying cycle based on 15 uses/day

The system utilises two different types of organic waste management technologies in order to accelerate the breakdown process with every flush. Using MineARC’s unique non-toxic EnviroZYME enzyme solution to anaerobically break down matter, combined with compressed air driven aerobic effects, waste is broken down to microscopic carbonaceous particles that is then evaporated through the toilet’s venting system.

For South African clients who do not want to purchase capital equipment, the EnviroLAV Compact Design is available for hire at the low introductory price of just R100 /day. The EnviroLAV Hire Program is offered exclusively to South Africa and Australia at this time, and stock is limited to just 100 toilets per region, so don’t miss out!
