The Urine Nutrient Reclamation Project is the first community-scale urine recycling project in the United States, and continues to fulfill its function of:
- preventing water pollution
- conserving drinking water
- producing fertilizer for local farms
- providing a research platform for specialized investigations by the Rich Earth Institute and academic partners
- facilitating the development of tools and technologies for handling and processing urine
- serving as an example for communities considering urine diversion projects
More information on our major projects is available in the following paper: Urine Diversion for Nutrient Recovery and Micropollutant Management: Results from a Regional Urine Recycling Program, available in full text in the link above and forthcoming the in the proceedings of the WEFTEC 2015 conference.
