Portable Toilet Rental Market size is expected to significantly increase over 2021-2027 owing to the growing need for sanitary products at weddings & receptions, construction sites, sports events, outdoor concerts, emergency relief activities, construction sites, agricultural use, festivals & fairs, and charity events. Customizability and availability of a wide range of options to choose from make portable toilets a preferred solution for several applications.

Government regulations is another key factor that triggers the requirement for portable restrooms. For instance, many municipalities require portable toilets for outdoor events such as carnivals, fun runs, outdoor theater gatherings, fairs, and other special events.
In non-developed and developing countries, where people often lack access to proper sanitation, open defecation is certain to increase the risk of diseases and groundwater contamination.

The reactor was designed to disintegrate water and human waste into hydrogen and fertilizer. The hydrogen obtained from the reactor can be used as a source of energy for fuel cells, whereas the water finds applications in irrigation or toilet flush.
