31. I think the answer is in "The Zen of Flying"

"What is the sound of 100 people pooping?"

I haven't been able to find any information about the 747 toilet system, other than the capacity of the solid waste storage tanks (1100 liters/290 gallons). Lavatory and galley water is pumped overboard in flight.

If they follow the lead of the ISS, where urine is reprocessed into drinking water, engineers have figured out how to process solid human waste into flavored brown patties. Chicken or fish, anyone?
