Swedish engineer Rikard Lindstrom developed the first composting toilet in 1939 to prevent pollution in the Baltic Sea near his home. He went on to found Clivus Multrum in 1962, and the company soon spread across the Atlantic. Since its incorporation in the U.S. in 1973, Clivus Multrum has manufactured and sold composting toilets and greywater systems in North America and beyond. There is now a Clivus composting toilet at Fraserview and McCleery Golf courses.
How It Works
How It Works
Since 1939, Clivus Multrum composting toilet systems have been used in homes, parks and commercial buildings as the sole method of treating toilet waste. The composting process is reliable, convenient and safe. The Clivus composting toilet uses aerobic decomposition to slowly break down contents into stable compounds within the composting unit. This technology uses virtually no water in its flushing system. Both the energy savings and the water conservation aspects of this particular composting toilet system are reasons why it was chosen.
