Reuse in your country (is it legal, what are the standards, culturally accepted?)

Hello dear colleagues,

Working at Action contre la Faim (Action against Hunger) in France, I actually work on reuse (with urine, feces... for composting...).

1) I was wondering if reuse is legal in your country? If yes, what are the standards?
2) Is it culturally accepted?

Thank you for your attention.

Dear Solène,

I noticed that your post from 2 June didn't get a reply yet. This is not surprising as the questions you posed were way too broad.
Please first give a context to your question: why do you ask? What research have you done so far? Which countries are you interested in, and why? Who are you?

Then I am sure more people will be willing to post some information for you.

Also, do take a look at previous discussions in this thread:
forum.susana.org/forum/categories/7-agricultural-reuse

Then I think you will already get some pointers for some countries at least.

And of course there is also the Susana library which you could filter by the Working Group 5 theme (food security & reuse):
www.susana.org/lang-en/library?showby=ye...s=8&vbl_8=42&vbl_0=0

I look forward to hearing from you again soon, as Action against Hunger is a very important SuSanA partner!
