What is a composting toilet?

Our toilet is a urine diverting compost toilet which any claimed compost toilet would be. The key to compost toilets is to divert as much of the urine away from solids waste as possible and mix the solids waste with a medium such as coco coir or sphagnum peat moss. It does not completely compost in the toilet but it does start the process. The solids waste mixes or agitates with the medium and overtime the bucket will get full and the medium will be thick which is the indicator to empty. This waste can theoretically be emptied into a compost bin or pile and overtime the composting process will take place and have safe medium to plant with or dispose of.
