Re: Report on French researches on Urine Re-use

Very good report on this interesting and important subject. The pics shown speak for themselves.The only concern I have is that urine collection systems in my mind should be completely separated at the pedestal.
Non the less I feel we are going in the right direction and Urine will be realised as a resource very soon and the loop will be closed.
Cheers Ross

Re: Report on French researches on Urine Re-use

Bonjour cher Ben,

Merci pour ce rapport.
C'est avec intérêt que je l'ai lu.
Il montre que les francophones ne sont pas en reste dans ce domaine concernant la réutilisation en agriculture des excréta humains.

Dans l'étude rapportée à la page 11 de votre document, le système de traitement de l'urine appliqué avant fertilisation des cultures, est tout à fait innovant. Je souhaiterais en savoir davantage.

Nous avions mené des études dans ce domaine, cette fois-ci, en adaptant les systèmes de traitement de l'urine aux conditions locales.

Bien à vous !

Dear Ben, Hello

Thank you for this report.

It was with interest that I read it.
It shows that Francophones are not left behind in this subject, concerning the reuse of human excreta in agriculture.

In the study reported on page 11 of your document, the system of the urine treatment applied before fertilizing crops, is quite innovative. I would like to know more.

We have carried up many studies in this subject, but in our case, urine was treated by systems adapting to local conditions.

Yours!

Dr. Joseph Makaya

Re: Report on French researches on Urine Re-use

Bonjour Joseph,

Merci pour l'intérêt que vous portez sur nos recherches. Je vais cependant vous demander si vous pouvez attendre environ 2 mois supplémentaires pour que nous finissions le rapports sur ces tests que nous avons conduit pendant près d'un an.

En vérité nous n'avons pas vraiment réalisé de "traitement" mais plutôt analysé ce qu'il se passait dans différents types de sol en terme de 1) dégradation des résidus pharmaceutiques, puis sur 2) l'augmentation de la salinité du sol, sur le devenir des 3) pathogènes et dernièrement sur 4) les vertus agronomiques de l'urine.

Je reviens vers vous sur ce même blog à la fin de l'été dès que le rapport est finalisé.

Cordialement,

Ben

Hello Joseph,

Thank you for your interest in our research. However, I will ask you if you can wait about another 2 months for us to finish the reports on these tests that we have been conducting for almost a year.

In fact, we did not really carry out "treatment" but rather analyzed what was happening in different soil types in terms of (1) degradation of pharmaceutical residues, then on (2) increasing soil salinity, on the fate of the 3) pathogens and lastly on 4) the agronomic value of urine.

I'll come back to you on this same blog at the end of summer as soon as the report is finalized.

Regards,

Ben

Re: Report on French researches on Urine Re-use

Bonjour Ben,
Merci pour le rapport sur ce tour de France sur les instituts travaillant sur la valorisation des urines. Pourrais-tu également partager le rapport en français pour nos lecteurs francophones?
J'ai trouvé intéressant de voir qu'une partie de ces travaux porte également sur la valorisation de l'urine animale ce qui tendrait à mutualiser les efforts de recherche entre assainissement et agriculture.
Merci!
