Why compost toilets ?
A compost toilet
provides a complete circulation of nutritious substances. The
fertilization of streams, lakes och seas will be reduced.
How does it work ?
In a compost bin the waste from toilet and kitchen will, together with a supply of air, be broken down to compost. The heat generated by the decomposition will cause fluid to vapourise. The vapour is then evacuated through a ventilation pipe. The vaste will be drastically reduced in volume and be emptied normally every second year.
10-40 litres compost per person and year, which can be used to improve the soil.
Choise of compost bin
The compost bin
should be big enough for 4 persons and guests. Do not choose
a too small bin !
