M1000 White Fiberglass compostingtank on a pallet with a volume of 1.150 lit is easy to place on flat ground, low maintenance and suitable for 2-3 persons year-around. If further capacity is needed, a second toilet and tank is recommended. Especially if the second toilet is further apart from the first one.
The toilet Elegant made of two ply ABS plastics with an acrylic surface which is ultra glossy white and scratch resistent. Also equipped with high quality KANDRE equipped with a HOT-SEAT (see below).
Heated sit-ring is the star of the system, very much appreciated, especially at night and allowing for the bathroom itself to keep a lower temperature. This is now standard equipment. It can also be equipped with a LED night-light to avoid sharp light at night which many find disturbing and sleep-prohibiting. Many customers also report that the warm sit-ring relaxes the PC muscles avoiding the tensing up that sitting on a cold sit-ring can result in.

A 280mm diameter connection chute between the toilet and the tank, normally 70 cm long but can be specified at any length up to 5 meters (for a second floor installation).
Optional use of the toilet
The toilet top and liner can also be installed as a bench toilet without using the bottom piece. This can be advantageous if the distance to the tank is short (allowing the tank to come up closer to the floor or even be above the floor).
A 60 liter collection tank for the odor- and bacteria-free compost tea. The drum can be buried in the ground and connected to the near by compost tank with a hose. Can be equipped with a 200 mm tube reaching the surface of the ground for liquid removal with a submercible pump.
The compost worm Eisenia Foetida is a very shy small earth-worm who can cope with the higher nitrogen content found in manure piles.It does not like dry or warm and might benefit from a watering device (see below).
This manual irrigation equipment is included in the package.
A Gardena automatic watering timer.
Starter bed around 600 liter is included in the package.
An extra bale available at 160 Kr.
An in-line ventilation fan provides the guarrantee for the odor-free operation. The fan is included in the package price and is augmented with two airtight connectors to a 110 mm sewer and drain pipe used for the ventilation. The fan has two speed options drawing 24/37 Watt. The sound level is 27/34 dB respectively which is quiet as fans go. Easy to replace and carries a 10 year warranty.

12Volt and 0.16Amp fan in a galvanized housing for installations without line power. Can be powered by a solar panel.


Based on 45 years experience


Carl Lindström is a civ. egineer from KTH Stockholm and MIT Cambridge MA. He is the co-founder along with his parents of the first commercial composting toilet Clivus AB, which later became Clivus Multrum AB. There was an early assumtion that the system would produce solid compost. Over the years a new process has emerged called Long-Term Composting (see video on the left) where the end-product is liquid and the solids is left for several decades. Based on decades of observations, a next generation process-tanks have been developed, taking less space and working with less maintenance and service than the older Clivus tanks. Carl was in the 1970ies working for the Swedish Environ-mental Protection Board and later served as environmental attché in Wash. DC. He works now as earlier with the US corporation Clivus Multrum USA Inc. In 2007 Carl founded CompostEra AB in Sweden with sights set on solving waste problems in the Swedish archipelago, replacing the older latrine-collection systems. The new tanks are dimensioned to go for 30-50 years without solids-removal.

Long-Term Composting has found great support in countries where ground water is vulnerable to pollution from toilet-systems that do not stop disease organisms from spreading into the environent.
