"Water and sewage piping are the arteries and veins of our cities, requiring huge investment in infrastructure and maintenance. But have the technology both to collect and clean rainwater, and deal with human waste locally, to go "off-pipe" beginning"

Composting toilets have been around for a long time, but most require good management. That's difficult in large buildings used by a lot of people - easier in a home. This one sounds like it may work.

When you read about the work involved in composting toilet, the work involved depends on the toilet. They go from a certain amount of work to almost no work at all !
Most flush toilets require some work -- such as cleaning -- so would helping to save the earth and mankind and all that lives on earth -- and the water -- be a good incentive for using a low-work composting toilet?

CAN MANKIND AFFORD THE WATER TOILET? CAN MANKIND GO WITHOUT USING THE ODORLESS COMPOSTING TOILETS ? With the use of purifying water 5-7 times before it reaches the tap, with water distills in use in countries with almost no water, with drought here and there, with floods and eathqukes -- that damage sewage systems and eptic systems -- would an odorless low-maintenance composting toilet be the better solution?
