Re: Marine Toilet (good, bad, and ugly)
If properly vented and non-contaminated with chemicals, doesn't the waste in a holding tank begin to decompose as well?
Sure it will. Probably not as quickly as it will in a well mixed composting toilet. But it will certainly decompose. Some compressed air and a bubbler would speed up the process; that's how sewage treatment plants work (in part, anyway).
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
