An old Maine farmer once suggested this rule of thumb: use human poop to grow animal food, animal poop to grow human food. As for the possible replacement of our entire dysfunctional sewage system by composting toilets, the main risk, assuming that the tank is isolated from the groundwater until it's composted enough to use, is illness carried by flies, which can be discouraged by pouring in a cup of sawdust or ashes after every use. Back before cities all over the world committed themselves to water-based systems, inventors were coming up with "earth closet" designs in which the flush mechanism dumped in the covering solid. This might be a good time to re-examine some of those old designs.
