I am a research engineer working in the urine drying team at SLU, where we are developing a technology that converts human urine into a dry, hygienic, and high-quality solid fertilizer. This technology has potential to replace nearly a third of all the synthetic nitrogen and mined phosphorus used in agriculture today. I believe in this approach because it is a simple solution to many complicated environmental, hygienic and social issues. We are moving the world forward!
