Please see this link regarding Sodium Percarbonate:https://www.heraproject.com/files/6-f-04-hera%20percarbonate%20full%20web%20wd.pdf

And this as a general reference to caravaning:

Never having used such a system I cannot speak authoritatively, but if I were emptying a container with these chemicals onto my humanure pile, I would only apply it in one area. Then, if there are worms in the pile and they don't like what's being pushed onto them, they can move away.

Use your best judgment on how much to apply to the heap. I.e., not to much at a time. You don't want to drench the humanure that is already composting. If after a week or so the pile is continuing to heat up and compost well, you will know it's safe.

These are only my suggestions. Others might disagree and have better ideas.

Hi I am looking at using a chemical toilet while travelling away from home. If I was to use the eco friendly chemicals or napisan powder, would there be any issues with putting the contents on my humanure compost pile when I get home?
