Technology 111 - Hygiene Pods

Hygiene is essential. Generally.

In a closed sealed environment with minimum cycling air, heavy physical labour and a mix of species it is absolutely mandatory.

Most ship board hygiene systems use an ultra sonic system for light duties, such as cleaning the epidermal layers of beings, and for clothing. Heavier hygiene issues such as waste management and 'heavy soiling' require heavy duty hygiene systems. Waste management is generally managed by dedicated systems that extract water and return it to the cycling systems, then the dry solids are disposed of. Sometimes by simply ejecting them from the ship, more often by dumping them into the hyperdrive core. Heavy duty clothing is typically immersed in a chemical bath, which is recycled and filtered, with the clothing then being run through the ultra sound system as per normal.
