New Grant for developing urine drying technology in Bolivia

The group is happy to share that we have received a 4 million SEK research project grant within the area of development research from the Swedish Research Council. The project, “UDT 2.0 – Urine Dehydration Technology for Sanitation 2.0“, has the broader objective of moving sanitation research beyond the toilet (Urine-Diverting Toilet; UDT) by demonstrating a safe, productive and sustainable approach to urine recycling (Urine Dehydration Technology; UDT2.0). Our focus will be on Bolivia, specifically the city of Cochabamba where water is scare, expensive, and with very few piped water connections in peri-urban areas. The work will be conducted by researchers from our group at SLU and the University of San-Simón in Bolivia over 3.5 years between 2019 and 2022.
