Composting Toilets

Toilet waste is over 90% water content. This is evaporated and vented to the atmosphere through the ventilation system. The small amount of remaining material is recycled into a useful fertilizing soil.

Composting toilets produce no pollutants while collecting nutrients. No chemicals and no septic systems are used fragile environments are therefore protected. A composting toilet is an environmentally healthy choice for recycling human waste.

Re-Use Nutrients

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.

Odor Free

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.

Evaporation is assisted on electric units by a thermostatically controlled heater in a sealed compartment underneath the evaporating chamber.

No Chemicals

The only thing that is added is peat moss mixed with wood shavings,  mixed 60% wood shavings, 40% peat moss, or Sun-Mar's Compost Sure peat mix with hemp. 
Chemicals are dangerous to the composting process and should never be added.

 

Off Grid

Both electric and non-electric versions available. Due to the high energy consumption of the heater element, the electric versions are not suitable for most off grid installations. However an electric heater such as this is an ideal dump load you have a micro hydro or wind turbine system, .
