Composting is Nature's Way
Every living organism consumes nutrients and creates waste. To
back to nutrients and complete this cycle, nature uses the processes
of decompostition and evaporation. As is often the case, nature
seems to be doing business in the best way possible.
That's why Sun-Mar toilets are designed not only to harness these
natural processes, but to optimize and accelerate them.
Toilet waste is over 90% water content. This can be evaporated and
carried back to the atmosphere through the vent system. The small
amount of remaining material is recycled into a useful fertilizing
Wherever there is a poorly working septic system, a Sun-Mar can
take care of the toilet waste; where there is an outhouse we offer
the luxury of an indoor facility; and where there is no toilet at
all, a Sun-Mar provides the right environmental choice. Sun-Mar
units are economical, quick to install and easy to use.
Because no chemicals and no septic systems are used, fragile environments
can be protected. A Sun-Mar composting unit is an environmentally
healthy choice for recycling human waste.
The Sun-Mar system produces no pollutants, while collecting nutrients.
With a Sun-Mar, recycling is made easy!
As well as ensuring an aerobic breakdown in the Bio-drum, Sun-Mar
ensures an odor free environment by engineering the air flow within
the unit to maintain a partial vacuum at all times. Air is being
drawn in either by a fan (or on non-electric units by the vent chimney)
over the evaporating chamber and up the vent stack. Not only does
this evaporate excess liquid, but by continuously pulling air in
we ensure no smell escapes from the unit.
Evaporation is assisted on electric units by a thermostatically
controlled heater in a sealed compartment underneath the evaporating
