Testing Bokashi in a muldering toilet design
(or Poo digestion: phase 2)
For my primary material management I use an envirolet toilet (muldering toilet in a plastic box). But just before Christmas the cold weather meant frozen material had formed a mountain and plugged the exit.
I know. Kind of an odd topic, but while off grid waste management is seemingly without surprise, here’s a tip I picked up last year: Bokashi style composting toilets.
Bokashi is Japanese for “fermented organic matter.” You make an inoculate or microbe laden mash and by combining it with various organic materials use it to ferment and very rapidly compost those materials. That’s the theory.
