New Vetenskapsrådet funding for urine drying in Bolivia

We’re happy to share that the #Bolivia project on #urinedrying that we started in 2018 will continue for another four years through new funding from Vetenskapsrådet / Swedish Research Council. In the project, we will be developing novel chemical pellets that can capture all the nutrients in urine, while removing organics pollutants and malodour-causing substances. The pellets will be evaluated against real-life aspects and natural contaminants before they are field-tested in urban settings in Bolivia. Project partners in Boliva include Luis Fernando Perez Mercado and Mercedes Iriarte from Centro de Aguas y Saneamiento Ambiental  at the University of San Simon in Cochabamba.
