In household wastewater and biodegradable solid waste, the main proportion of the plant nutrients are found in the toilet water (i.e. in urine and faeces). In order to recover most of these nutrients, with the purpose of decreasing the emission of eutrophicating agents and of increasing their recycling, present waste and wastewater systems have to be changed. If the urine and the faeces are collected, up to 91%, 83%, and 59% for N, P and K, respectively, can be recovered and recycled from the… CONTINUE READING
