Q. What is an incinerating toilet?
A. Designed for use where no drain lines or septic/sewer system exists, an incinerating toilet is a waterless toilet that incinerates “black water” to eliminate the septic pump-out processes. In other words, it burns waste instead of flushing it away with water. There are two types of these units: electric and gas-powered (diesel or propane). Incinerating toilets are designed to solve the problems with waste management in remote applications and mobile applications (such as RVs). The end result is a fine, sterile ash that can be safely disposed of in an environmentally conscious manner. Incinerating toilets are portable, easy to install and can operate in freezing conditions and remote areas. Plus, they’re relatively odorless compared to common portable toilets. Incinerating toilets are used by the military, camp sites, relief organizations and individual homeowners.
