Description Current designs for a circularity in agricultural are underdeveloped in terms of their impact on soil fertility. At the same time, nutrients and organic matter from human excreta are under-used. The aim is to bring these two ends together by analyzing how nutrient- and carbon-rich wastewater products can be effectively integrated into agricultural production by studying the contribution of these products to soil functioning (plant production, build up of soil organic matter, water retention)
Used skills Pot experiment, lab experiments, soil and plant analyses
