Compost Toilet

A composting toilet is an alternative to a traditional flushing toilet. Composting toilets are not common in commercial buildings; however, they are becoming a more common environmentally preferred option as they 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 – both designed to prevent fixture odors.
