Home Forums General Discussion building a legal composting toilet? Re: building a legal composting toilet?


My Biolet NE works fine at 70*F (takes 6 weeks to become true compost fertilizer), and I add 1 cup peat and 1 tsp compost activator per “load” and turn twice. Warmer up to around 110*F works fast(but takes too much energy, usually), but 140*F would kill many organisms. The Earthship III book has plans for a solar incinerator toilet (but, then, you don’t get the good fertilizer quantity). There’s nothing better with true recycling than to eat the food grown in the Earthship, use the compost toilet, and later replenish the garden soil.
