A Urine Diverting Compost Toilet, like the Nature's Head, works by separating the solid and the liquid waste into two separate compartments. The separation is key to creating disposal waste and to minimize smell of a toilet. In fact, compost toilet smells better than a traditional flush toilet. When poop and urine mix together it creates sewage creating the smell that you associate with typical toilet.
When you separate your poop and your urine you are creating two reusable materials that can be put back into the environment. In this article we will be covering the benefits of the urine diverting compost toilet, how compost is made, and how to dispose of your urine and compost once you are done.
So your solid waste goes in your solids bin and is mixed in with a compost medium (also known as bulking material). In the Nature's Head toilet we recommend peat moss or coco fiber. By rotating the solids with the compost medium you start to make your compost.
Now bacteria in your poop will die if it is dry, however, if you add urine to it it will encourage bacteria growth, making it unsafe and smelly. That's what make normal sewage unsafe and stink. So it is important for urine to be separate from your poop.
