urine diversion toilet
 n.— «There, up a few steps on a tiled platform, sat a toilet unlike any I’d seen. Its pan was divided in two: solid waste went in the back, and the front compartment collected urine. The liquids and solids can, after a decent period of storage and composting, be applied to the fields as pathogen-free, expense-free fertilizer.…Mr. Zhang and Ms. Wu’s weird toilet—known as a “urine diversion,” or NoMix (after a Swedish brand), toilet—may have things to teach us all.» —“Yellow Is the New Green” by Rose George in Woolley, Engand New York Times Feb. 27, 2009.
