EcoLet™ uses modern technology to accelerate and optimise natural biological decomposition, evaporate excess liquid and to exhaust odours and water vapour, all within an attractive home appliance that is easy to use and economical to operate.
The ventilation pipe leads moist air away and ventilates the entire bathroom. Mixing arms help aerate the compost and sift it into the humus tray. The adjustable thermostat combined with recirculation of the heated air results in a very low energy cost. The fan drives warm air through the air channels to remove moisture, to provide the compost with oxygen and to warm it up to optimum temperature. For maximum usage rates the toilet room should be at least 18°C.
The humus collection tray in the bottom of the unit is emptied periodically, depending on usage. More humus-starter is added as needed to maintain a balanced composting mix.
All Ecolet Composting Toilet Systems are certified against the "AS/NZS 1546.2:2008 On-site domestic wastewater treatment units – Waterless composting toilets" standards
Cold composting with high air treatment; is a time dependent composting process but with accelerated drying effect to manage moisture and to shrink the compost mass from a reduced moisture content in the compost. Note that drying does not speed up composting. Batching composting systems; is sample receptacle for Humus with a requirement for average management.
The EcoLet™ Non-Electric Separera is the ideal solution for batches and remote areas where access to power is not possible. With a rated capacity of 2 people for full-time use, and 4 people for part-time use, this is the above floor model which is designed for situations where there is no space for a retention tank below the floor. This makes it ideal for concrete floors and even second-story applications.
