What have Waterless WC’s got to do with these Organic Fruits & Vegetables?

Samples of the Organic produce grown by Scott Chen [Chen Xiangyang]

Apart from the fact they taste amazing! The examples in the above photo go a long way to answering the above question. They also include (to name but a few); tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, peas, eggplant, maize [sweetcorn] or leafy crops like cabbage, broccoli, spinach, lettuce, asparagus and beetroot. Fruit; apples, cherry, strawberries, peaches, dates, pears and plums. The reassuring fact about these and other fruits and veg is they’re grown with 100% natural nutrients, not soil that has been sprayed with chemicals, widely proven to negatively impact ourselves and our environment. They also do not erode the quality and lifespan of the soil in which they’re grown. You may be thinking that in terms of organic produce this is nothing new.

However, let’s reluctantly step away from those amazing looking fruit and veg for a moment and take a toilet break. Not literally, but to briefly touch on the environmental benefits, particularly for saving precious water, of waterless WC’s. A subject that’s been close to the heart of the Bill & Melissa Gates Foundation for some years now. The tie in? I’m guessing you’ve all been to a public WC either in a store, workplace, school, shopping centre, stadium, petrol station, park, hotels or restaurant. If you’ve ‘gotta pee’ then fortunately for men, there are urinals where they can stand and pee. Less fortunately for women, the only option is toilets (cubicles) where invariably there’s a queue to go – something that still needs addressing and we discussed in a previous article.

Potential. To continue our story, let’s introduce you to a successful family-owned company called Urimat a leading manufacturer of waterless urinals and other environmentally friendly products in the sanitary industry, providing odour free, self-cleaning urinals that most importantly save literally 1000s of litres of water. If you’re a man you’ve probably already used one without even noticing the difference, although the ‘hidden benefits’ are exceptional. Things get a bit more tricky and less easy to resolve when installing ‘waterless’ toilets (sit & go). Without going into too much detail it’s because of no.2s, aesthetics and the ability to separate no.’s 1 and 2 so to speak. But what’s all this potty talk got to do with that delicious fruit & veg you may ask?

The answer’s coming shortly and it may surprise you. Although many of you may have read about this before let’s hope we can shine a new light on the subject. On this particular topic, our minds are programmed to react to certain information by association rather than by the information itself. Let’s do our best to overcome that with the ‘good news’ followed by the quite honestly, ‘not so bad news’.

Perception. Nowadays, we are all aware that water and organic nutrients are both valuable and becoming (relatively) scarce. For agriculture and horticulture water is essential, and tbe spraying or use of chemicals isn’t ideal as they damage the environment, as well as wildlife, bees etc. i.e. they mess up the ecosystem. The earth’s soil is also being stripped of its vital nutrients. Plant-based diets (e.g. vegan and vegetarian) are on the increase, while for people in many parts of the world they are key to survival. It’s already widely known that manure and compost help the organic growth of fruit and vegetable crops. Given a choice, would you prefer to buy your groceries knowing they were a) organically grown, or b) grown using chemicals? All of the fruit, veg and crops mentioned above were grown using a natural resource following good agricultural practices. Just like those familiar bags of manure and compost you may pick up at the garden centre. The above fruit and veg aren’t going to cost you more at the shops either and, in fact, often may be less expensive, grow better and taste better than their chemically assisted equivalents. Thinking on a more global scale… natural fertilisers can also far better enable less fortunate communities a) to grow crops, b) save water, and c) improve their lives and land. Sound like good news to you so far?

Fresh Lemon & Water

Possibilities. Imagine that wonderful detox for cleansing the liver by mixing (diluting) a few drops of lemon with a glass of water. The lemon retains all of the healthy benefits but diluting it makes a greater quantity that’s easier to drink and absorb. With that in mind, you may be aware that our urine is 95% water, packed full of nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus which similarly, when diluted, can provide the nutrients plants need to thrive and are the main ingredients in most common mineral fertilisers. Add the fact that there’s understandably a steady supply of this ‘human’ plant food. Then, last but not least, that when diluted by approx. 10:1 [10 parts water] or the nutrients extracted, or if mixed with ash (e.g. wood/bamboo) it has proven to work remarkably well as mineral fertiliser. Albeit we’d need to collect a lot of pee to meet the supply and demand to reach the volume of  natural mineral fertiliser farming requires. As an example, an adult on a typical Western diet pees out about 500 litres a year (three baths full). With all of this in mind, the idea of using filtered and diluted urine itself shouldn’t sound too gross, when at the moment the fact is, ‘we’re just p’ing it away’. Therefore using urine rather than it going to waste and vs chemicals surely isn’t such a bad idea after all.

Organic Garden and Picking Red Tomatoes from the Plants. The Concept of Health.

Never say Never. Hopefully, this illustrates how the benefits are unquestionably positive. The challenges though are different for different parts of the world, cultures and conditions.  Closer to home considerations are the logistics and practicality of collecting/storing the pee and then turning it into usable fertiliser. This could be more easily achieved in larger public toilets as we mentioned at the beginning, and further illustrated below at the Heineken Music Hall. Presently, in terms of bringing about change for families at home the toilets would require different plumbing, but also adoption may be slowed because many people don’t want a toilet that might look strange. That said, the taboo of using bidets to ‘wash your bits’ outside of countries like Japan (Toto & Lixil) and China is a toilet taboo that’s now constantly being broken by inspirational companies such as Tushy making them so easily accessible and user friendly – so never say never.

Proof Positive. As Urimat, who we introduced earlier, clearly illustrated recently with a project at the Heineken Music Hall. Waterless urinals were installed at AFAS Live to collect all urine from male concert-goers and transport it to a treatment plant in Amsterdam. The phosphate was extracted from the urine and converted into struvite, a nutrient-rich agricultural fertiliser. An initiative that provided a relatively simple and incredibly efficient method for reclaiming phosphate. As global phosphate deposits are gradually being depleted, recycling efforts such as these will prove increasingly important in the years to come. What should be borne in mind is not only the potential for use as a natural fertiliser, the cost savings and how much energy could be saved in most countries sewage treatment works is equally substantial, but also relieving pressure on our overworked environment.

Waterless Urinals & Separating Toilets. The far greater challenge, or opportunity at this time by nature of its potential positive impact, is for the 2billion+ people without access to water or basic sanitation in the rural areas of developing countries, parts of South America, China, India and Africa for example. There’s a huge effort being made on ways to provide clean water, improve hygiene, bolster food production and save lives with better sanitation. This involves education, funding, people on the ground, innovators and suppliers. Check out Unicef as a leading source of information on the topic of sanitation,  or The World Toilet Organisation. However, among the list of top innovators/suppliers both at home and overseas are those like Urimat (urinals) and a ‘separating toilet‘ manufacturer called Separett. Whilst Urimat deals with no.1s Separett, founded in 1976, produce toilets that enable the separation of no.1s and no.2s albeit everyone needs to ‘take a seat’ to make this work. In terms of peripheral benefits, specifically for the developing countries are that the urine can be separated and used, it’s saving water and enabling the opportunity to improve the land and therefore better feed these communities. The other thing about Urimat is that there’s a media panel on top of the urinal that is used commercially. I believe this could equally be used to promote safety messages, good hygiene or information to educate and aid local communities. When caring about improving quality of life and/or ‘reduce-reuse-recycle’ those most impacted have quite different perspectives if they live in poorer communities.

Chen Xiangyang. Take the remarkable work, dedication and determination of individuals such as Chen Xiangyang and his team where, within his local community in China, he’s helping to prove that the use of pee for producing food potentially has a great future and can be scaled up (btw, those are his fruit & veg in the photo under title). This is also happening in varying degrees in other countries incl., Finland, Denmark, France and The Netherland. Extensive research in the US in January 2020 by The University of Michigan established that recycled and aged human urine can be used as a fertiliser with low risks of transferring antibiotic-resistant DNA to the environment. The healthier you are, the healthier the urine. But what’s important about the above research is the reassurance from them looking at the different scenarios and giving pee the (pea) green light.

Innovation & Implementation. At the top end of the financial spectrum The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation provided a grant of $3million back in 2010 to a project concerning using urine as commercial fertiliser and have subsequently committed $200m to reinvent the toilet for a better world. Highlighted at the recent Reinvent the Toilet Expo in Beijing 2018 where they showcased HTClean Helbling, a toilet separator system without water connection for in-home applications. To further show how the potential to progress this work is getting greater traction and attention, early last year a start-up company called Toopi Organics raised €1m funding for their urine-based bio-fertilisers business dedicated to boosting plant development and growth.

All of these projects and more put the ‘P’ back into Progress!

Food for Thought. Looking back  at articles from 10 years ago discussing the use of urine in agriculture, the probability of it being used as natural fertiliser seemed, to say the least and excusing the pun, difficult for anyone to swallow. I suspect that 10 years from now people probably won’t even think twice and may even insist that the organic fruit and veg we buy comes from a source we know particularly well. In doing so we’ll also be helping the world to become a better place and saving natural resources, which we now know are needed more than ever.

‘Finishing Touches.’ The touch-free future of our Public Toilets & Restrooms.

‘We want to make an impact on human wellbeing, by changing the definition of a toilet break. ‘ OneHundredRestrooms

How easy is it to lose touch? As demand for touchless products increases, could bathrooms be entirely touchfree and perhaps, more importantly since coronavirus could we see more TouchFree Public Toilets, office buildings and common public areas. This week we’ll take a brief look at everything from the more familiar touchfree moments, such as ‘automatic doors, taps, soap dispensers and hand dryers’ to the less imaginable ‘totally touchfree toilets’ featuring lids that open and close automatically, automated washing and drying functions, self-flushing and cleaning.

Public Inconvenience. A public inconvenience has recently been experienced, spotlighted and amplified by the closures of numerous public toilets following the outbreak of coronavirus. We touched on this in our article, ‘Beauty Spots’ where to go when there’s nowhere to go? ‘ on June 4th. Press and media reports on the subject caused much debate as closures headlined around the world. To distinguish, when we talk about ‘Public Toilets‘ we refer to old and new stand-alone ‘wash+WCs’ in parks or on street corners, which are by far the most challenging to manage and improve. The others, which we’ll refer to as ‘Toilets for the Public,’ are the ‘restrooms‘ that sit within shopping malls, airports (public transport hubs) and similar private/public spaces, petrol stations, restaurants, bars, hotels and offices. The majority of which are ordinarily far better managed by nature of their locations, constant checking, attendants, higher quality fixtures and fittings, hygiene and cleanliness, and the all-important key to their overall success… funding, or clever funding models.

Why do Public Toilets Matter? There’s reams of government information about the provision and accessibility of public toilets and the importance to us all as a society. Issues they addresses include; public health, older and/or disabled people, women, families with young children and tourists, hygiene, cleanliness, safety, privacy and of course funding. There’s equally as much written about the failures of public toilets in addressing those issues and about the lack of accessibility or sufficient number. In our modern day society public toilets should be a well-respected service for the community, providing a clean and hygienic, safe and welcoming environment. If they are not treated as such by the public, nor supported, funded, maintained and well managed by politicians, local governments, architects and planners alike, then it impacts our society and society suffers, particularly women, children and the disabled. Perhaps rather altruistically, better public toilets could be a catalyst for change in public opinion and perception about their worth and necessity. To give some perspective, for 2 billion people (25% of the world population) public toilets, access to water and/or any basic sanitation doesn’t even exist.

‘Back to the Future.’ As ever, the more cutting-edge technology, innovation and design that’s introduced and succeeds, the greater the chance of its increased use and integration on a grander scale. We’ll get back to the wider subject of the outside ‘Public Toilets‘ in another post. This week we wanted to showcase a Dutch company that we’ve been keeping an eye on and their vision for the future, ‘OneHundredRestrooms‘. One strapline is, ‘We Create Moments for Better Wellbeing‘ and since they started back in 2017 ‘health & hygiene’ has been part of their DNA. As health and hygiene is increasingly more relevant to us all, their concept to disrupt with a difference is succeeding by contributing to improved hygiene, sustainability and innovation whilst creating publicity, awareness and acceptance of a change for good. These days, where everything can be connected and smart, toilets and bathrooms remain a very undervalued and untapped area. However, they potentially offer the perfect environment and place to take care of yourself. As more and more people look for ways to monitor their complete well-being, and do so continuously, in privacy and without having to change their daily routines. Not forgetting in light of the global pandemic there’s now a general health-driven purpose to getting insights into personal and public health conditions. As recent epidemiology and science studies of waste have highlighted by acting as an early warning sign for coronavirus outbreaks.

The Motivational Mirror

OneHundredRestrooms. The OneHundredRestrooms concept can transform your trip to the bathroom into a visit to a wellbeing hub that offers and introduces new intelligent toilet technologies. These can provide insights into our personal health during a moment when we pause and refresh. It’s not all high-tech as the touchless products with sensors can partner those adaptations that can be operated by avoiding the need to touch surfaces with our hands i.e. foot-switches, or using our elbows or wrists. OneHundredRestrooms provides an environment in which you can take care of yourself and grab a little ‘me time.’ The experience includes; Roca In-Wash® Inspira Smart Toilets. There’s a self-check area offers solutions to monitor health indicators like weight, blood pressure, length and body mass index, or perform a skin analysis. The restrooms are kept super clean by their ‘comfort crew’ and are spacious, relaxing, soundproofed and ‘non-touch.’ You can buy all of your ‘on the go’ essentials such as baby diapers, tissues, tampons, plasters or first aid kit from their vending wall. There’s a disabled room, family and nursery rooms and even a shower room. Before you leave you can stop at the ‘motivational mirror’ while washing your hands, then give feedback at the rating pad and suggest improvements or ideas. These wellbeing hubs provide a ‘5-minute wellbeing boost,’ a far cry from our usual perceptions of public restrooms. In the near future OneHundredRestrooms plan to have; medical toilets, skin analyses, drowsiness detection, alcohol checks and a whole lot more.  To quote OneHundredRestrooms COO Andy Donaghy, “Feeling safe about the hygiene of public spaces is more important than ever. After all, hygiene and health go hand in hand.”

Technology. Experience. Environment. Good technology creates a desirable experience and should encompass environmental impact as high priority. Toilet and bathroom technology need to be part of a good experience, and with the knowledge you’re helping the environment. Appreciably, for domestic bathrooms, not everyone can afford a high tech smart toilet. For example, if you look at an early game-changer like the Neorest® NX2 from Toto Japan, (approx. $17,000) it clearly illustrates the technological possibilities with, wait for it… a self-cleaning retractable pinpoint accurate ‘wand’ (washlet) to wash and dry your rear (bits and butts) and you are in control of the pressure and temperature. It actively fights bacteria, waste and limescale by spraying a ‘pre-mist’ into the toilet bowl using electrolysed water to prevent waste from accumulating. The toilet bowl itself is coated with a special zirconium coating, the hydrophilic properties of which ensures that waste and bacteria are effectively eliminated. To add to the self-cleaning process and the pre-mist, there’s and an integrated UV light that combines with the zirconium coating to trigger the decomposition process, making a toilet brush unnecessary. It also has a number of additional convenient features, such as a sensor-based toilet lid that opens and closes automatically, a heated seat and a deodoriser to absorb unpleasant smells. Plus, (in case you were wondering) a remote control – ‘with no place to hide it!’

Is the New Night Out a Night In? However, that’s not all that ‘Smart Toilets‘ can do for you. The Grohe Sensia Arena has a ventilator system in the toilet that shields and extracts odours, before processing them through a carbon filter. There’s a lot of innovation and ideas out there right now and Kohler’s Numi 2 adds to the previous list of accessories; high-quality built-in speakers and lighting features that can be paired with the speakers to create different ‘spa-like’ environments within a bathroom space. An Amazon Alexa is built into the product and provides voice control of Numi’s features as well as access to tens of thousands of skills. But, regarding add-ons that keep you glued to your seat? I thought you were meant to be on and off the toilet PDQ as it’s the healthiest option for your undercarriage. Unless, in view of future social distancing, those speakers and multi coloured lights are the closest you’re going to get to a wild night out in Berlin? The focus has to be on the real benefits to ourselves and our families. That includes being touch-free, aiding health, our wellbeing and use of environmentally friendly services to save water, recycle or offer sustainability. Touchless products with sensor technology are ideal for this scenario. They avoid us touching surfaces and can also reduce water consumption, bringing us back to the perfect marriage of technology, experience and environment.

Our Daily Routine, parts 1, 2 and 3. I guess we’ve all had that experience when we’ve found a restroom that had something, or some ‘gadget’ that we went on to tell our friends or family about (my Dutch wife loves the serenity of the restroom at Schiphol Airport where you hear the sound of the sea, I like the picture of a fly, strategically positioned in the urinals.) The main point here is that amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday life OneHundredRestrooms‘ concept is a personal ‘experience’ and it’s got lots of genuinely useful ‘gadgets.’ It is incredibly convenient and provides a really easy way to get a health check, whilst going about your normal business (no.’s 1 and 2.) For just €1 you can get an entry ticket with multiple benefits, visitors get all of the aforementioned services and even free drinking water. As the retail ads say, ‘it’s value for money.’ If you can add all that together as a no.3 during your toilet break, and do so in an oasis of calm and relaxation, then… ‘what’s not to like?’ It’s definitely my next ‘go to’… when it’s time to go!

‘Six Million Chickens.’ As Tonga’s Minister of Agriculture aims to produce electricity from poultry manure. We learn about ‘The How’… from a Cow.

Companies like Vanguard Renewables are key to the future of our communities and Planet Earth.

The Potential of Poop. How to harness the powers of poop has been a topic of conversation for centuries, and although animal waste has been used as a form of agricultural fertiliser there’s a lot more waste (manure) these days and its use as an energy resource is a brilliant solution. It’s been gathering pace in Europe for over 10 years and over time around the world. One thing’s for sure, that it impacts our entire planet, our present, our future, and by default, ourselves. Today there’s a world of difference and plenty of new challenges in addressing an age-old problem. Forward thinking companies, farmers and governments have been figuring out and implementing clever solutions for the, ‘what to do… with so much poo?’ The benefits for you and I? More natural fertilisers mean more natural and nourishing crops, there’s a better use of our growing mountains of food waste, less landfill and turning animal poop into renewable energy helps reduce the planet’s greenhouse gases.

Redefining the Best Renewable Energy Resource. Although Solar power, Hydropower, Geothermal and Wind Power are perhaps the more familiar renewable energy sources. Bio-Power as a renewable energy source has recently been getting more and more attention. By comparison it has greater benefits for planet earth and its inhabitants as it uses waste. Manure and food waste provide a constant natural flow of ‘fuel’, and therefore a 24/7/365 solution. In other words it’s a resource that’s not dependent on the whim of the elements, sun, air, water nor digging up the planet to dip into its natural resources.

Bio-Power: Although we’re taking a look at an American company this week to tell the story, European countries have been on this for some while. Germany being by far the largest biogas producing country in the EU (over 10,000 plants (and the UK taking second place (1,000) (IEA Bioenergy.) But there’s a wide-ranging presence in numerous countries worldwide [WBA.] For example, the Chinese government’s recent development plan for biogas plant deployment is aiming for over 3,000 large-scale plants across China. Getting back to the subject of manure and just how much of it there is, according to ciwf.org and Statista: In the USA alone there are just over 9 million dairy cows (2 million in the UK) Europe 24 million, India has the greatest number iro 58 million and total worldwide figure is iro 100 million cattle.

The logistical challenges are a part of the collective thinking with that amount of manure, added to which, all of the burps and farts that are releasing methane into the atmosphere, are producing a potent greenhouse gas (approximately 30 times more powerful than carbon dioxide.) According to National Geographic, ‘About 20% of the warming the planet has experienced can be attributed to the gas.’ In case you’re wondering, we’re not going to start ‘counting our chickens’ in this particular post, cow poop is a perfect example in itself!

Greenhouse Gases. There are ways that destructive greenhouse gases (that would be escaping into the atmosphere) can be put to good use. By mixing manure (there’s plenty) with food waste (btw, much of our food waste fits the profile) in ‘digesters’ which can be used to produce natural gas. It’s an obvious expense to set up initially and to manage on an ongoing basis, but it offers a win-win for all. Tonnes of manure can be taken care of when, with clever logistical planning, it’s mixed with ground food waste from grocery shops, schools, restaurants, breweries etc. (ordinarily put into landfill.) The food waste once collected, is ground down and turned to slurry, then used in combination with manure to create (useful) methane.

Anaerobic Digesters. In simple terms that waste that is then processed in anaerobic digesters (i.e. with an absence of oxygen.) Biogas plants rely on anaerobic digestion, a fermentation process in which waste is digested by microbes to produce methane gas (biogas). The same process you or I, might use to make fermented sourdough, sauerkraut, kimchi and suchlike (yep, we make all of that stuff at home) and it’s all great for your digestive system, but we digress. To quote Power Technology, ‘The combined waste can be converted into biofertiliser and spread directly onto fields, or the biogas itself can be used interchangeably with natural gas as fuel. In other words, it can capture the methane emissions and be used to make renewable energy.’ In turn that can be partly used, for example, to power the farm where the digester is located, and the rest can then return an income by being fed into the national grid. The whole set up is more sustainable, environmentally friendly and certainly economically savvy.

Poop and Food Waste is Lighting up the World. Unsurprisingly from what we’ve written, so far in the USA (as is the case elsewhere in the world), there’s been a great deal of attention and enthusiasm about all this. A company called Vanguard Renewables are the leading the way for dairy waste and FoodWaste, organic food waste-to-renewable energy. in the north-east. Within just 5 sites, they are already recycling approximately 200,000 tons of on-farm and off-farm organics per year. As pictures speak louder than words, take a look at this ‘easy on the eye’ explanatory infographic and the youtube clip below:

Let’s put that in 3D – click here to see how it looks in situ!

Here’s a quote we received from John Hanselman, Chairman and CEO, Vanguard Renewables:

Dairy farmers are under huge pressure, and this thought that we can take their farm manure and combine it with recycled food waste, power the farm, send power to the grid or the renewable natural gas pipeline, and then power the farm’s survival, for me, is one of the best things that we do,” John Hanselman, Chairman and CEO of Vanguard Renewables said. “When Vanguard Renewables began, we saw ourselves as a renewable energy company that happened to be located on farms. We had that wrong. We’re actually a farm-based dairy manure and food waste recycling company that happens to make renewable energy.

Food Waste is Fuel. So before we wrap up on this topic we hope to have at least put this growing solution to a major problem on your radar.’ In a nutshell anaerobic digesters; reduce greenhouse gases, provide intelligent food waste recycling, create more natural fertilisers, support renewable energy, improve waste [manure] management, reduce landfill, reduce overheads at farms, and provide energy for the national grids and local communities. Bloomberg ran an article last week that perfectly illustrates many of those benefits as, ‘Millions of gallons of stale beer became a hangover from lockdown.’ Although as Power Technology reports, ‘Biogas production is not suitable for every location. As larger production relies on an abundant supply of waste manure or crop materials,‘ in other words it’s not so practical in urban areas and there are other small ‘corrections and improvements’ being made along the way, any of which are far outweighed by the list of benefits.

The Winds of Change. However, we feel that investment in Anaerobic Digesters for renewable energy vs Wind Turbines and Solar should be a strong if not the leading contender. First, wind only produces electricity, whereas digesters are three-fold, they can produce either renewable electricity or renewable natural gas, but also agricultural fertiliser. Digesters offer so much more in terms of environmental benefits. Also, importantly, digesters operate 24/7/365 and are not dependent on the wind (or the sun in the case of solar) so it’s a consistent renewable energy production. In the case of on-farm digesters, they help support farms that need a diversified income source to survive. Finally, food waste is such a huge issue [30%+ of food is never eaten] and of equal significance is food waste diversion from landfills. All of which should be,A big motivator for governments (as many have already) to be supportive of anaerobic digesters and schemes to facilitate their large-scale deployment.’

So far, as Power Technology pointed out… ‘investment into the sector is not particularly popular with certain governments, which are instead putting money into the more developed alternatives of wind and solar.’ We’re hoping ‘the winds of change’ will favour digesters, biogas and biomethane, as a global ambition and global solution in the near future – with climate change acting as a key driver. As a closing question on which to ponder, could it be that the likes of certain other renewable energy companies, are the ones that are actually… our biggest ‘waste’ product?
