The Eco l'Uritonnoir Combines Urine and Old Straw to Produce Compost

If you've got tickets to Hellfest in France this June, you're likely to stumble across l'Uritonnoir. This eco-friendly urinal concept is easy to install, simple to disassemble and actually transforms into a rather valuable product.

In its most basic form, Faltazi's invention is a sort of funnel. The small trough can be manufactured in bent stainless steel or in flatpacked polypropylene. It can be effortlessly threaded through a band that fastens it and all other funnels around bales of hay.

The nitrogen-rich urine of beer-drinking music festival goers is guided by l'Uritonnoir into the center of the big straw bundles. This initiates the decomposition of the dried plant stalks, yielding a material that can be used as compost at local farms.
