Recycling waste can make it usable again. Urine contains nutrients that have a variety of uses, including to feed plants. Cinderela filters these nutrients from the urine, so they can be used again.
Collecting all usable substances
There are several projects ongoing that involve recycling urine, but Cinderela is the first experiment to extract all the nutrients present in urine. A new type of toilet collects the urine and separates the usable substances, so they can be turned into usable raw materials.
But the nutrients aren’t the only benefit of Cinderela. In similar projects, the residual water (what remains of the urine) is disposed of. But because Cinderela filters all the nutrients out of the urine, the residual water is fully upgraded to drinking water quality.
