A composting toilet is one that captures the waste and turns it into compost, instead of flushing the waste down into the sewer system. Self contained composting toilets compost the material in a container within the receiving fixture. Split units, which are sometimes called remote, central or underfloor units, collect waste via a toilet stool, either waterless or micro-flush, from which it drains to a composter typically located in a basement or outside. Split systems can be made for high-volume use; however, they typically require significant space to house the composter.

The US Department of Energy has developed an LCA report to help evaluate the energy and environmental benefits of LEDs when compared to incandescent and fluorescent lighting. This analysis follows the four steps outlined above. When using LCA to compare equipment, it is important to establish a common unit of performance by which each will be judged.
The US EPA has developed a guide about conducting LCA. The LCA process is a systematic, phased approach and consists of four components: goal definition and scoping, inventory analysis, impact assessment, and interpretation.
Today's workplaces are often in flux. As organizations change direction or develop new services, people also move. Teams form and re-form. People move to new spaces and take on new responsibilities. The spaces themselves are transformed to meet new needs. These changes are much easier to accommodate, with less stress on people and the organization, when the workplace is designed to support flexibility.

Composting toilets are not common in commercial buildings; however, they are becoming a more common environmentally preferred option as they are odor-free and use less potable water, if any. Composting toilets use an aerobic process to break down waste by using little or no water. There are two types of composting toilets: self-contained and split units.
