How does a composting toilet work?

A composting toilet is a type of dry toilet that treats feces through a biological process known as composting.
This process decomposes organic elements, transforming human waste into compost. Microorganisms undertake composting under controlled aerobic circumstances (primarily bacteria and fungus). Because the majority of these toilets do not use water to clean or flush, they are referred to as “dry toilets” or “waterless toilets.”

After each use, a carbon addition such as sawdust, peat moss or coconut coir is supplied to assist decompose the solid waste in various types of composting toilets. This method creates air gaps for the aerobic decomposition of human excrement.

This also raises the amounts of carbon and nitrogen, which reduces possible odors.
