Urine, Liquid Gold. Think Twice Before Flushing It Away!!!

Urine is a product of our bodies that can help our trees, plants and food crops thrive, saving fertilizer costs and taking a load off our overwhelmed environment. Storing and using Urine’s Nitrogen, repairs this broken nutrients cycle by putting it to work instead of disposing it. Add the fact that urine is usually free and sterile in healthy populations we have a Golden opportunity.  

Using urine for plant fertilizer can help clean our lakes and rivers, save water, reduce the wastewater treatment, return nutrients to farmlands, and end the unnecessary over production and transport of industrial fertilizers.

Every Day, people in Greece excrete about 12.000.000 liters of Urine. Most of it is flushed away. This Daily 520.000 kg of nutrients if the form of Nitrogen are enough to fertilize 25.000 “stremata” of corn for one year! And one year of Urine can fertilize 1.300.000 “stremata”!

In wastewater, urine accounts for the most of the nutrients as much as 90% of the nitrogen and potassium. These nutrients can get into groundwater and lakes, rivers and streams where they can pollute by over-fertilizing aquatic life.

Managing wastewater is getting increasingly more expensive as a result of the effects of too many people. If you include the cost of nitrogen fertilizer manufactured and purchased for farms, landscapes and plant nurseries, the opportunity to reduce costs while preventing pollution becomes clearer. 

To use urine for fertilizer it must be oxidized to a form that plants can use, called nitrate. Or it can be diluted and mixed into well-aerated soil, where the soil’s aerobic microbes complete the oxidation (nitrification) process. Direct application of urine in the garden is the best or it can be oxidized into a compost heap. 

To demonstrate the potential of urine as a fertilizer, NASA scientists grew vegetables using a hydroponic solution of urine and tap water with amazing results.  

“You are in charge!” 

When you use urine to fertilize plants, you’re taking charge of urine to recycle nutrients and prevent pollution.
