The 6th Dry Toilet Conference, Finland

Prithvi Simha, PhD student at kretsloppsteknik, participated in the 6th International Dry Toilet Conference that was held in Tampere, Finland, between 22-24 August. Prithvi presented our ongoing research on alkaline urine dehydration technology and shared experiences of installing & operating a household-scale urine dehydration unit for three months at the SLU campus. 

The conference was organised by the Global Dry Toilet Association of Finland, which plays host to the event every three years. This year, the venue was Hiedanranta, a former industrial area in Tampere, Finland where all toilets are water-less (of course!). Urine and faeces are collected below the venue in a basement – the conference organisers estimated that nearly 500 L of urine was collected during the three day event.

  1. Dual flush toilets may also qualify for a rebate from your local water authority. You can search for utilities that offer rebates at the EPA website. All of the recommended toilets in this section are WaterSense certified.
