Projects

By recovering nutrients from urine, we develop a sanitation system, which produces a valuable fertiliser
Sustainable urban water and wastewater management applied and implemented in the modular NEST building.
As part of the “VUNA” research project, researchers have developed the new VUNA recycling technique by which valuable nutrients can be extracted from urine and used as fertilisers. The liquid fertiliser “Aurin” is the result of the project.
