Experiences from the implementation of a urine separation system: Goals, planning, reality

Czemiel Berndtsson, Justyna LU (2006) In Building and Environment 41(4). p.427-437
Abstract
Over the last decade it has been ever increasing interest in developing alternative sanitary systems, which would be more sustainable than a conventional one is. In Sweden urine separation has been considered a promising approach towards increasing recycling of wastewater nutrients. Full scale trials are carried out and examined. This paper presents a study on implementation of urine separation system in urban environment. Technical and non-technical aspects of system performance are evaluated; system's interference with existing infrastructure is examined. Benefits and losses connected to urine separation system are analysed not only from environmental perspective but also system's owner point of view. (C) 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights... (More)
