Media materials for promoting Anthroponics

Recently I made a couple of images to promote and explain anthroponics at a more simple level. ¬†Feel free to use them and share them. Additionally, I’ve set up a new page, Gallery, where I’ve included these pictures as well as some of the construction of the proof-of-concept system I built last year.

Anthroponics_explained

This last image might not be completely clear, though I did my best to use the most symbolic images. In the left part, we have that a human and a toilet will produce two types of biowaste: urine and feces. The result of urea volatilization, when transformed by nitrifying bacteria, will¬†return plant fertilizer, allowing the production of crops. On the other hand, feces can be consumed by fly larvae (in particular, black soldier fly larvae), which can then be consumed by fish for their production (aquaculture). However, the fish’s own waste can also be transformed by nitryfing bacteria onto plant fertilizer, allowing for the production of both fish and plants (aquaponics).
