ECO TOILETS

Forget flush toilets, with their evil chemicals and fetid smells.
Dry toilets are here to shift the sanitation paradigm!

Instead of water and chemicals, eco toilets use carbon-rich material such as sawdust.

Most of the nutrients in the food and beverage you just consumed pass through your body.
These same nutrients can be used again to benefit new plant growth and soil health. Urine has a similar composition to commercial fertilisers.

We treat all collected urine so it can be safely used to fertilize crops in the region. We will also process all of the collected solids into a Class A compost.

Here are some specs about their functioning:
Let's say you are using the compost toilet.

This is when you deposit your manure or pee. Under the toilet seat, a composting tank has been previously prepared with a special "composting bed" (made of nutrients, like carbon) that ease the composting process and neutralizes the odors.

When you are done, close the toilet lid - a crucial step to keep the heat in and the flies out! And by the way, the provided toilet paper is made of recycled tetra pack, so no worries about throwing it inside the toilets!

The whole composting process is absolutely safe.

There are two ways of getting rid of harmful organisms: some human pathogens don't survive long outside the human body, so we rely on the time factor to ensure that they perish by keeping the pile of human waste inside the composting tanks for a minimum of six months.
Other organisms only go away with very high temperatures, which are very common in the Idanha-a-Nova region! For these organisms, we keep the human waste pile at 50ºC for 3 days. With time, along with high temperatures, most of pathogens in human waste eventually die.

Q&A

Mike:
How do dry toilets work?
Support:
Composting toilets use the natural processes of decomposition and evaporation to recycle human waste. Waste entering the toilets is over 90% water, which is evaporated and carried back to the atmosphere through the vent system. ... Ensure that the finished compost is safe and easy to handle.
Katie:
Do composting toilets stink?
Support:
We are raised with the idea that toilets smell bad. However, due to constant negative pressure inside the unit, a Sun-Mar composting toilet never smells. Compost must be mismanaged significantly or venting installed incorrectly in order for it not to operate odor-free.
James:
Can you poop in a compost toilet?
Support:
In a composting toilet feces and toilet paper compost with a "bulking agent" like sawdust cover the poop to create air gaps for aerobic bacteria to break down the material.
