The PaInT group gained the attention of major (Belgian) newspapers and –websites with the pilot plant of the SATURN (Solar Assisted Treatment of Urine with Recovery of Nutrients.

This pilot plant aims to recover pure water and nutrients (as a fertilizer) from human urine collected at the Ghent Festival this summer (July 15th – July 24th). This system, solely running on solar energy as its main energy supply, is able to treat urine in a robust, two-step system

The development of this pilot system shows the belief of PaInT in simple, robust technologies with high impact, for applications in both developed and developing countries.
