We are launching the latest version of our urine separator for composting toilets, which now includes a lip as standard and an integrated strainer over the funnel end. The lip at the back of the separator prevents urine spilling into the solids container and the strainer ensures no sawdust blockages in your pipe work. The strainer can be removed independently of the separator for easy cleaning.

We have just posted a urine separator to a client in New Zealand who has a business making portable compost toilets for emergency situations. Urine separators posted to New Zealand typically take between 7-12 days to arrive. We post our separators the following day from ordering so there is no delay on our side. Get in touch if you would like to get our free plans on how to make a compost toilet box.
Some feedback just in of a sighting of a we-pee separator in Portugal (in an "Adubo de compostagem") ... Here it has been used in a waterless composting toilet on a remote mountainous site in Portugal. Composting toilets are the ideal sanitation solution for off-grid locations without electricity, running water or sewage systems. Separating the urine from the solids with a urine diverter is the key to producing great useable compost from the system and eliminating smells. Permaculture projects in Portugal are popular with the great growing climate, and dry toilet systems go hand-in-hand with natural, ecologically conscious principles.
