Instead of just letting these valuable nutrients wash away, you are reusing them. As human waste is composted, the nutrients are contained in the soil by-product without any of the pathogens or viruses which are destroyed by bacterial breakdown. This fertilizer can then be used on plants or around the base of trees, rather than just leaching into the water table.
As well as ensuring an
aerobic breakdown in the Bio-drum, Sun-Mar ensures an odor free environment by
engineering the air flow within the unit to maintain a partial vacuum at all
times. Air is being drawn in either by a fan (or on non-electric units by the
vent chimney) over the evaporating chamber and up the vent stack. Not only does
this evaporate excess liquid, but by continuously pulling air in we ensure no
smell escapes from the unit.
The only thing that is

peat moss, or Sun-Mar's Compost Sure peat mix with hemp.
