Wayout there, That is interesting.
Do you have any idea when the home units will be commercially available.
Being a farmer at heart, my biggest interest is in the fertilizer.
How long does the process take?
Composting can take years.

Thanks for this info, i've yet to look through it but can see it being invaluable.
A cousin of mine who spent a lot of time in Costa Rica, said that some friends of his had a garden where in one corner of it the veg and plants did amazingly well. Turns out that the sewage pipe came out around that area.
Food for thought. (Maybe best not to think of food and poo in the same sentence).

And just composting the human poo won't kill it, since part of the blood fluke life cycle is human poop while the other is in snails....which enjoy compost.
how do you stop your humanure from becoming an incubator for trematodes?
How do you feel about hepatitis C? Or just garden variety e. coli infection, from working with people's crud.
Yeah, there are great reasons why people in the developed world don't use their own gong for fertilizer.
Talk about pooping too close to the nest....
