The toilets at Torres Del Paine were heavily used to the point that they were overflowing and campgrounds had to be closed. TTS offered a solution that could be retrofit rapidly into existing buildings and provided an alternative waste plan that could prolong the life of the builidngs. Waste was diverted to a shallow earthen vault where it began to decompose rapidly. The campground has re-opened with functioning toilets.
