A requirement for separating urine is an appropriate toilet (where men also have to sit to urinate) or a dry urinal, both of which are commercially available. The urine-separating toilet appears similar to a conventional toilet, but the bowl is separated into two sections by a central wall. The front bowl is intended for collecting urine, the rear bowl for collecting solid waste. Each bowl can be flushed independently. The toilet also reduces the amount of water needed for flushing. The urine is collected in tanks and periodically transported to a special purification installation.
