By using Aquatron, with a urine diverting toilet, the septic tank no longer needs emptying, thereby reducing both the cost and the carbon footprint of having a truck to remove the waste.An urine diverting toilet has two outlets. The first takes the urine to a tank for storing, the second takes solids and paper to the Aquatron Unit, where the permanent material is separated (solids from flush-water), the separeted solids breaks down into compost. Any residue liquids are combined with other household grey water, to be treated by infiltration.

The conventional water supply and sewage-treatment needs to change at both a technical and policy level. Systematic ecological thinking is required in order to convert to an ecologically sustainable society, as well as more humility among decision-makers. The Earth is five billion years old. Mankind has been found on this planet for only a short period of time, but over the last 100 years we have polluted nature and the environment at such a rate that we are approaching a global catastrophe.
EVERY MINUTE 50 tons of artificial fertiliser and pesticides from cultivated land leach out into lakes and oceans. 21 hectares of tropical forest are destroyed.
EVERY HOUR 685 hectares of agricultural land is transformed into desert. 1800 children die due to lack of food (15 million a year). Pesticides poison 55 people and 5 people die only in the USA. 60 new cases of cancer are established in the USA alone.
EVERY DAY 25000 people die due lack of water. This is happening five years after the Rio de Janeiro declaration.
URINE DIVERTING AS A NATURAL PART OF THE WATER SUPPLY AND SEWAGE-SYSTEM ADAPTED TO THE NATURAL CYCLE.
Like other countries, Sweden has experienced strong growth of towns and society. More and more people are leaving the countryside and moving in to the towns, where it is easier to get job, to study and where is a more convenient lifestyle. The economic system upon which we have made ourselves dependent is destroying our ecosystem.
We consume on credit.
We leave waste products in our wake, creating environmental problems. Costs are increasing, the unpaid bills are growing. Who is going to pay?
We have to take responsibility for future generations. The principle of waste separation is accepted as an essential part of effective and sustainable resource recovery. Until now this principle has not been fully applied to wastewater. Significant benefits can be achieved by splitting the waste flows at source in specially designed WC. The urine sorting system in our Urban Water Treatment Plants is a natural way to an ecologically sustainable society.
UNDERNOURISHED FIELDS – OVERFED SEAS
We are doing the wrong things in the wrong places, and are creating problems, then we build very large water treatment-plants and create even greater problems.
NPK – NITROGEN – PHOSPHORUS and POTASSIUM.
It is about cultivate nourishment and organic material, which must be returned to the fields from which they came. It is about the valuable human urine that today ends up via water treatment plants in our lakes and seas and contributes to overfeeding. This involves gradually altering the balance, changing over to ecological agriculture, and having nutritious food without the inddustrial fertilizers and pesticides. It is about having healthy children without allergy problems. It is about having an ecologically sustainable society.
