  Waste tank treatment packs

Porta-Treat toss-in packs from Bionetix contain natural and safe aerobic bacteria that digest odor-causing compounds and waste. The bacillus spores used have been shown to reduce large waste particles that settle to the bottom. The cellulose present in toilet paper is reduced to odorless carbon dioxide and water. The bacteria are capable of releasing enzymes that minimize waste so the bacteria have better access. By reducing waste and odor-causing compounds, the holding tank is left fresh and clean, reducing downtime and maintenance costs. 514/457-2914; www.bionetix-international.com.

  Solar-powered restroom trailer

The environmentally friendly Optia 14 from Black Tie Products is a three-room solar restroom trailer.
