EWRE Seminar: Reclaiming Nutrients from Human Urine

Start Date: 
Wednesday, April 1, 2015 - 4:30pm to 5:30pm

Room 1670 Beyster Building

Presenter: 
Kim Nace
Abraham Noe-Hays

The lecture will be delivered by Abraham Noe-Hays and Kim Nace of the Rich Earth Institute, which is dedicated to advancing and promoting the use of human waste as a resource.

Human urine is the leading source of nutrient pollution and eutrophication in aquatic ecosystems throughout many densely populated watersheds. The conventional approach of applying end-of-pipe nutrient removal technologies has proven impractical or unaffordable in many communities, but a radically different strategy may provide an alternate solution.
