Urine contains 80% of the plant nutrients found in our wastewater, while faeces contains the majority of the carbon and potential pathogens. By managing the two streams of excreta separately, we can safely return the nutrients from the urine back to the fields to produce more food. The feces are also easier to manage as the volume is much smaller and there is less risk of the collection unit overflowing and polluting the surrounding environment. Daily excretion of feces is 0.5 L per person a day, but urine is 1-3 L per person a day. Separate management and treatment is especially advantageous in dry toilets. Dry toilets are commonly used in wilderness recreational areas in Northern Europe and Canada and are the main source of sanitation for over 3.3 billion globally.
