How EcoFertilys is leading the way in ecological transition in Madagascar?

This Earth Day, as we reflect on our responsibility to protect our planet, it becomes evident that we must urgently rethink one of our most fundamental agricultural practices: the use of chemical fertilizers. Although these substances have been crucial for global food production over the past decades, they now impose environmental and health costs too significant to ignore.

Chemical fertilizers, once revolutionary for their ability to support demographic growth, now threaten biodiversity and ecological balance. The impacts on human health and the environment are alarming.

Sustainable alternatives: An increasing necessity
The effects of climate change make the transition to sustainable agriculture not only desirable but essential. Innovations like those of EcoFertilys play a crucial role in this context. EcoFertilys aims to transform human urine into a powerful ecological fertilizer through an enhanced nitrification* process.

Beyond simple nitrification, EcoFertilys enhances this technology by incorporating compost tea and then fermenting the mixture to boost the nutrient profile of this 100% natural fertilizer. This method creates a balanced fertilizer that efficiently recycles waste, offering a sustainable alternative that promotes healthier plant growth and improves soil vitality.

*Nitrification of urine is a biochemical process that transforms the ammonia (NH₃) or ammonium (NH₄⁺) found in urine into nitrate (NO₃⁻) through the action of specific nitrifying bacteria. This process occurs in two main stages: first, ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) convert ammonia into nitrite (NO₂⁻), and then, nitrite-oxidizing bacteria (NOB) convert nitrite into nitrate. The result is nitrified urine, which is less volatile and odorous than raw urine and contains nitrogen in a form that is more readily available for plant uptake. This makes nitrified urine a valuable and eco-friendly fertilizer in agricultural practices, enhancing the sustainability of soil management and plant nutrition.
