Value from Urine
Nitrogen recovery from urine
From 2012 to 2016, the forerunner of W&F Technologies BV also participated in the EU project ‘ValuefromUrine’. This project aimed at developing a new concept for decentral treatment of urine. W&F Technologies BV has developed and manufactured a BES for this. The BES enables the recovery of nitrogen and energy from urine. Currently, the pilot BES is running on urine collected at the research facilities of Wetsus in The Netherlands. Wetsus and W&F Technologies BV are working together on improving the performance of this system. Also, other nitrogen rich streams are being investigated as feed for bioelectrochemical systems.
