- Each toilet comes equipped with two removable, airtight waste cartridges -- one for liquid waste, one for solid waste -- as well as conveniences like a trashcan, a sealed bin for sanitary pads, and a solar lantern.
- People can use them on an unlimited basis by purchasing a membership for about $1 a month. Franchisees collect the money and can earn extra from selling hygiene-related products, such as toilet paper and soap.
- Sanergy collects and transports the waste to a processing facility, where it’s composted with sawdust and microorganisms -- converting collected waste into organic fertilizer.
- That’s then sold to local farmers, who used to rely on more expensive, imported fertilizer.

What the MIT editor never bother4ed to stucy poop-to-plant products of the '50s& '60s, like Milorganite? MIT folks should be able to afford a call to Milwaukee sanitation authorities.
Everything is so 'new' here -- because of the MIT label?
Fix the comment interface so it works right, if you folks need something to do.
