Prototype of innovative toilet system installed in Malmö
The first prototype of an innovative toilet system is now installed at VA SYD's head office in Malmö. Urine is collected directly under the toilet and dehydrated in a cassette that contains, treats and concentrates the urine. The output is a dry nutrient rich urine based fertilizer. Researchers at the Swedish University of Agricultural (SLU) have developed the new system, which will be tested in Malmö and Lund.
