There is a growing wish for recycling of human urine and faeces, also in the Western societies. One challenge of this recycling technology is that of changing the present waste-water infrastructure and toilet technologies. Another chal-lenge is that of attaining social and cultural acceptability of the new alternatives.
My PhD project – "Culture in the bathroom – a study of social and cultural hindrances and potentials for recycling of urine and faeces" – is focusing on the social and cultural challenges of this idea of recycling. The project was initiated in December 2002. In this poster I will give empirical examples of social and cultural aspects in Danish bath-rooms and discuss their influence on the possibility of recycling urine and faeces.
This poster present my PhD project. It presents some common features in Danish bathrooms, some differences and also the theoretical and methodological approach in the project.
