(Composting toilets, Arborloos) - by: joeturner February 28, 2020As geoff says, much of the carbon in wood chips are in lignin which takes a long time to breakdown, and is resistant to the microbes you actually want to be growing in faecal compost. Also if it is chips, the surface area is low. It would be better, but probably still not great, to use sawdust. It still puzzles me why anyone could possibly imagine that this […]
