"The reason [waterless urinals] are being thrown out is the jury's out about all the kinds of germs that grow on plastic," he said.
So are we to assume that germs won't grow on vitreous china?

I hate those waterless urinals. If I've been holding it for a while (like at the movies) I pre-flush and listen to the water running for "inspiration", can't do that at those waterless ones, which can be a rather painful experience.

they are saving hundreds of thousands of gallons of precious water in 29 states
...ummmm, Lake Michigan provides more water than Chicago can use. Water is not so precious around here. I also wonder what happens when the filter manufacturer goes out of business or decides to hike the price of the filters AFTER you commit to this approach.
Don't tell anybody, but after I build my new house, I am going to rip out the toilets after inspection and install 5 gallon flushers smuggled in from Canada.

"It's as benign as a sink when it's kept up,"
Key phrase: "when it's kept up." As it usually isn't, it ends up being very stinky and dirty.

Men never flush urinals. Our company had to install automatic flush valves because the men's rooms smelled like unmaintained outhouses in August.

These new urinals don't seem to have the charm of the ones I'm used to using...

Does this mean no more Hanoi Jane urinal cakes?

Why are they testing a urinal in Chicago. The men there piss while they are sitting down so it won't be used much if at all.
