As per the system in place that and breaks down the ammonia and urea components of urine and separates water. The urine is filtered as safe water that is directed to a soak pit via a channel. This odourless water can then be used for watering plants or cleaning floors.

The urine is collected in an anaerobic digester, where, in the absence of air, anaerobic microbes debase the urine, decreases stickiness and liquefy the solids. The urine subsequently enters the activated carbon filter, followed by a biofilter.

Explaining the utility of the by-product processed HMRL Managing Director, NVS Reddy shared that the ammoniacal nitrogen in the system is broken by a microbial strain, in which ammonia and nitrogen are separated.
