Save Environment: Know More About Composting Toilets Composite toilets are a type of dry toilets using the natural aerobic processing system of decompostion and evaporation in treating and recycling human waste. When human waste enters the composite toilet, ninety percent of the water content uses a vent system for evaporating water that is carried back to the atmosphere. The small percentage of solid material goes though the process of natural decomposition for fertilizer conversion. This natural process is enhanced in commercial toilets by manipulation of the environment in the composting chamber. It is important to have a balance between the moisture, heat, oxygen and organic material for ensuring a rich environment for the aerobic bacteria, transforming wastes into fertilizing soil. The end product of this process doesn’t contain any pathogens that are destroyed by bacterial breakdown which is a nutrient-rich fertilizer that can be used around the base of trees or plants, thus reduces need for commercial fertilizers and preserves local water quality. The three separate processes used by composting toilets involve quickly composting waste and toilet paper to remove odor, ensuring the finished compost is easy to handle and safe, and evaporation of liquid. Composite toilets use little or no water, and are often used as alternatives for flush toilets when dealing with situations without suitable water supply or sewerage system. Composting toilets utilize slow and gradual cold composting conditions in facilitating odor mitigation, liquid absorption and aerobic processing. There are two elements of a composting toilet which are a place for sitting and a composting or collection unit with composting or storage chamber, ventilation unit, collection system and access door. The design considerations of composite toilets include leachate management, aeration and mixing, environmental factors, additives and bulking material. The four main environmental factors affecting the decomposition process include sufficient oxygen, forty to seventy percent moisture content, forty to fifty percent degrees Celsius temperature and carbon-to-nitrogen ratio of twenty-five is to one. It is important to add bulking materials or additives to cover feces and reduce insect access which include wood chips, saw dust, bark chips, pieces of paper or ash. For controlling moisture levels, it is important to have leachate removal to ensure rapid aerobic composting that include urine-diverting system or urine separator, and a drainage system at the bottom of the composter. For aeration and mixing, commercial composite toilets have ventilation used for moving air from the bathroom through the waste container, out to a vertical pipe and vent above the roof in order to pass odors and carbon dioxide.
