Researchers from the University of Michigan and the University of Buffalo are working with the Rich Earth Institute to generate some means of making human urine usable as fertilizer. Just like researchers at the University of South Florida are trying to find ways to make sustainable fertilizer production possible from livestock waste, researchers are working with the Rich Earth Institute to find ways to achieve the same ends with human waste. It is something to see useful results from this research that could potentially lead the world beyond chemical fertilizers.

Carrots grow in a plot of land at Hope Roots Farm in Westminster set aside for the Rich Earth Institute's use. The collaborative research team funded by the EPA from the University of Michigan and the University at Buffalo met on Monday in Brattleboro and visited the test plots in Westminster in the afternoon. The group is studying the pharmaceutical residuals in urine and what happens to them in soils, water and plant tissue when it is used for fertilizer. (Kayla Rice/Reformer)

The time needed to get the project underway has made it to where it will take years to get results, but finding a way to put urine rich in nitrogen and phosphorus to use is now in reach. Urine can be toxic for water supplies but if the work is done right, a sustainable and efficient way can be found to make fertilizer from urine that will help the environment and provide nutrition to plants while being harmless to local water sources.
