after loosing a flyght in São Paulo I’m back home now and it’s time to make a balance.
this idea os taking out the water of urine and grey waters makes sense and with the prototype we have made in serrinha we are some steps closer. its clear that the composter is a good source of heat and specially during the night where the delta of temperature gets really big. one design flaw of our prototype has placing the boiler outside the composter. we did this to keep an eye on the boiler but also was easy to build it outside the composter. making it inside would be like making a ship inside of a bottle :p but this meant that after the hot liquid enters the boiler is starts to cold and the efficiency of the model gets compromised.. we where able of distill around 50ml during one night. we still have some problems to solve but we are on a good path to help solving urban farms biggest problem: a local source of water and nutrients.
