L’Uritonnoir: Harvesting the Liquid Gold from the Straw Bale Urinals

uritonnoir3French design studio Faltazi has developed a plug-in funnel to upcycle urine and bring an eco message to summer festivals. Their solution to the problem of peeing al fresco is l’Uritonnoir, a hybrid of a urinal (“urinoir” in French) and a funnel (“entonnoir”) that plugs into a straw bale to make your very own urine upcycling factory.

As the bale is filled with your “liquid gold”, the nitrogen in the urine reacts with the carbon in the straw to begin the process of decomposition – forming a rich mound of composted humus within 6-12 months.
