The Department of Environmental and Food Hygiene will apply new watering technology to public toilets in Hong Kong. The project will spend HK $ 600 million to update 240 public toilets, which will take place over 5 years.
In a parliamentary meeting Thursday the director of the department said this new innovation could make new toilets stain and odor free; and ensure the toilet ﬂoor was dry and clean.
“Public toilets on Sai Yee Street; Mong Kok will use ozone to water for sanitation and odor removal. In The Peak and Tsuen Wan there will be several toilets that will use oxygen to eliminate odors; so we will use technology to decompose odor particles into carbon dioxide and water; ” Vivian Lau explained to RTHK, Thursday.
To ensure the toilet ﬂoor is dry, a Hand Drying Machine will be installed next to the sink to avoid people walking with wet hands on the toilet. So far; public toilets in Hong Kong are often protested because they are dirty; smelly and not maintained.
