Do you ever see any maintainance people, or just the line up of people using them?

“The collection basin below the toilet seat, to which the urinal material is also channeled, is stocked with a mixture of chemicals. The exact composition of the chemicals varies among manufacturers and isn’t readily available. The job of the chemical mixture is to break down the waste products, rendering them harmless and odorless.
Isn’t there some more info about it other than the odor

Wikipedia is addressing the odor thing. I am not sure that is the most important thing.

Can you offer more detail than that?
