Composting Toilet

Composting toilets are toilet systems comprised of a superstructure, a pan or slab, and a vault or pit in which faeces or excreta fall together with cleansing material (the composting chamber). Dry organic material such as sawdust is added to adjust moisture content and C/N ratio in order to obtain optimum conditions for thermophilic composting. Composting toilets allow to treat bothexcreta and faeces as well as organic household or garden waste and to transform it into a valuable soil amendment.
