Composting toilets have been around for very many years. The Chinese are known to have been using a system of composting human waste for more than 2000 years and for many good reasons. Composting toilets that are used and look the same as the water flush toilets that what westerners have become accustomed to, began being produced commercially around 30 years ago, and have been well received by the market because of the following best features:
