A test container has been put near the Wetterskip building in Leeuwarden.

Phosphate and ammonia are the base components of valuable fertilizers for agriculture. At the heart of the innovative “ValueFromUrine” concept lays a Bio-Electrochemical System which recovers energy and ammonia from urine. In current treatment processes the urine is “diluted” with other waste water and a lot of energy is needed to remove the ammonia. The aim of this demonstration project is to evaluate the technology developed in the Wetsus laboratories under real world conditions.
