We want your urine, waterboard tells male Sail visitors


Male visitors to the massive Sail maritime festival in Amsterdam later this month are being asked to pee at special locations so their urine can be turned into fertiliser.

The city’s water boards hope to collect 100,000 litres of pure urine which can be distilled to extract phosphates, the Parool reports on Friday. Phosphates, which can also be mined underground, are used to help plants and crops grow more quickly.

If anyone wants my urine for fertilizer, they have to pay me for it.
