The article features the bioreactor toilet from Protec that will be installed in an NDW intermediate car fleet developed by Siemens and Bombardier for SBB's Zürich S-Bahn services. The STB 22-2 bioreactor, the first of which is expected to be delivered in July 2010, consists of four main elements, namely, a solids compartment, a liquids compartment, a hygienic processing unit and a control and display cabinet. One advantage of the bioreactor is its life-cycle cost.
