Composting Toilet Availability Worldwide

I’ve recently been thinking a lot about the worldwide availability of composting toilets. Composting toilets are a thing in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Sweden, as far as I’m aware. Indeed, Sweden seems to be quite a homeland for the idea. But what about the rest of the world? I don’t know if I can even say that composting toilets are popular or accessible in Scandinavia, let alone northern Europe.

Online browsing shows composting toilet projects in places like Haiti and India, but the projects are usually by Americans.

There are a few locally made systems I’ve come across in Portugal and a few South American countries, but production appears to be very limited and the units themselves appear to be more along the “pooping in a bucket and throwing out the contents” variety than actual composting toilets. A real composting toilet is not just a bucket.

If you have any info about the state of global composting toilets, drop a line!
