The Clivus Multrum is a self-contained, waterless and odorless toilet treatment system. It uses no chemicals, heat or water and has no polluting discharge. It can save up to 60,000 liters of water per year in the average home and costs much less compared to regular treatment systems.
Clivus is the Latin for inclination. Clivus refers to the unique solution of the construction of the system still used in Clivus installations all over the world. The sloping chamber and the ventilation of the composter allow the sewage to compost successively.
Clivus Multrum is a container for composting sewage. The sewage is composted, among other things, by using very effective ventilation. Incidentally the bathroom is also odourless before, during and after your visit. The volume of the sewage is considerably reduced in the process. After a year the remaining volume is about one third of the original amount. The container must have a capacity big enough to receive and store the sewage until it has been composted, a duration of about six years.
