Since the beginning of this year, the Kretsloppsteknik group has been working towards building a system to pilot the urine drying technology. Several members of the group have been involved in designing, constructing, simulating and testing a system with a capacity to treat 30 L of urine every day in <1 square meters surface area. Over this time, we conducted several experiments, both indoors and outdoors (see picture above). The system is intended to be piloted by integrating it with a portable/mobile toilet that will be installed in Finland during the first week of March to treat 30 L urine/day.
More updates to follow!
