A completely regenerative system is outlined which would furnish the physiological requirements of human living in an extra-terrestrial environment. Attention is focused on processes in the system which would convert organic constituents of waste to inorganic forms. An aerobic, thermophilic, microbiological process is discussed in detail in which the conversion of organics might be accomplished very efficiently. The process would be continuous and completely mixed. A large recirculation ratio would be used, and the microorganisms in the recirculated flow would be destroyed thermally.
