Introduction

Anthroponics is an emerging field of hydroponics in which human biowaste such as urine is used to grow plants in a soiless environment, with recirculating water.

I believe anthroponics can play a key role in reaching sustainable hydroponics, in decentralizing wastewater treatment, and in decentralizing food production.

Through the last 2 years and with the help of organizations such as the New University of Lisbon, Grönare Stad AB, Hemmaodlat, and Lund University, I have been researching this new field so as to learn more about the underlying processes, and optimize the treatment and growing processes in anthroponics. The goal is nothing short of a moonshot: to prove that human biowaste can safely be used for food production, and in a more sustainable and resource-conservative way than traditional agriculture and wastewater treatment.

I’m the aministrator of the aquaponics map and of a survey that i going around on web 🙂 please contact me by email or by Facebook (aquaponics Questionnaire). I would like to talk with you about aquaponics and know your idea

    Thank you, ciao ciao
