Anthroponics is the combination of wastewater treatment and hydroponics. While a smelly and uncomfortable endeavor, figuring out how to safely convert human biowaste such as urine into a form readily available for plants could revolutionize the way we think about waste and farming.
In our office in Augustenborg, Malmö, we have built a testing site for experimenting with anthroponic systems, and we have also built a small laboratory bench where we can perform some simple chemical measurements. With the help of Niklas Hjelm and Henrique Sánchez, we have since then performed several trials and optimized the anthroponic processes. Our goal will ultimately be to perfect anthroponic production, while we share with the world the results of our research. Below you can find a chronological list of our technical reports.
- Wood ash as a nutrient supplement for Cucumis Sativus in an anthroponics system
- Lactuca sativa production in an Anthroponics system
- Cucumber in an Anthroponics system under different urine dosages
- Citrullus lanatus seeds as a urine catalyst for anthroponic use
- Aquaponics and its potential aquaculture wastewater treatment and human urine treatment
