I know that other countries such as Japan and Sweden have used incinerators to dispose of solid wastes for decades. The emissions are filtered through lime scrubbers and other filters to have virtually no tracable emission levels. This technology could be adapted used for reducing the impacts of burning solid waste.
This will also reduce the mass of the waste by 80%. Incinerators are also used for generating energy (like a steam generator). Maybe there are options for generating engergy from fecal waste at multiple stages of the operation.
