Mobile composting... what?! Admittedly, when you first hear the term "dry separation toilet" it sounds a little unwieldy. But the use of this variant of the mobile toilet is a super-simple matter. A dry separation toilet does exactly what its name suggests: it separates small and large business without water (and thus dry). A special insert under the toilet seat ensures a smooth process that drains the urine into a canister and the solids into a separate container. The big advantages: No odours are produced, use, emptying and cleaning are child's play, the resource water is saved and the use of chemical additives is avoided.
