Raw toilet waste contains bacteria that should not be let without treatment to the nature, especially not to any water body. During composting, this bacteria will die and the compost turns into valuable fertilizer to be used in the garden. According the regulations, the composting should be done so that not any liquid leaks out. Green Toilet Waste Composter meets the standards and is an easy way to handle toilet waste safely.
The most important part of the Green Toilet Waste Composter is the double capillary base, which works like an under watering flower pot. It lets excess liquid out of the compost mass, but also enables some of the liquid to be absorbed backwards. Thus, the compost will stay adequately moist and composting is efficient.
The excess liquid is led through the hose to a canister. This seap liquid can usually be poured back to the compost, where the urine will speed up the process.
There is a ventilation hat on the top and ventilation holes on the sides, which will let necessary oxygen in.
