Description:ECOLOO base is made of a 2-tier chamber: the upper chamber is where human waste including urine (not urine diversion system) is collected and treated by specially formulated bacterial culture whilst the lower chamber is where the organic fertilizer in liquid form is rendered to by gravity using no water to flush. The lower chamber is built with a special indicator and outlet for end users to collect or drain out the ready-to-use by product each time the lower chamber is full.

While the bacterial culture dissolves the solid waste and turns this waste and other degradable waste such as toilet papers and tissues into ashes in this water free environment within just 3-4 days, the nitrification process that is built in the system converts the liquid waste into by product of value added fertilizer that is odour free, pathogen free and yet full of nutrients within 30 minutes.

Value Added Fertilizer:ECOLOO has only one chamber with one hole and all the waste, including toilet paper, urine or wash water, will all go down naturally by the pull of gravity into the upper chamber. Users have an option to dry flush the solid waste by flattening it with a special built in mechanical device. The by-product is partly a brownish liquid fertilizer rich in nutrients and free from odor and pathogens (organisms generating diseases). This organic fertilizer will be a huge saving in fertilizer usage to nursery plantation caretakers as soon as they replace the chemical fertilizer with natural fertilizer for their nursery.
