Pheonix Composting System

Have any of you used and or heard of the phoenix composting toilet? I have used one at Smith Rock in Oregon many times, they are great, clean, low maintenance with no stench. Was wondering if y'all had any insight as to why they are not used more in colorado especially in highly used river areas. They are spendy but as far I can tell they don't need to be emptied as much, as they are constantly composting. It seems like a viable option for the BLM to consider in heavy used off the beaten path areas.

Be nice to have a composting groover that you would never have to empty hahaha

they have them on the Deschutes river in Oregon also. Love 'em! cleanest back country privies I've ever seen. Seems like we also saw some at little yosemite valley in the national park also.

it's a big improvement over the pit toilets like those still on use on the rogue. at some point though, I think it's better to just have people haul a groover and pack it out. I am not in favor of development of any kind in riverside camps.
