Funded by German and EU developmental agencies, the company Finizio built in 2019, in Eberswalde, Brandenburg, Germany’s first recycling plant to convert human excrement from dry toilets, mostly from outdoor festivals, into humus fertilizer, with the future goal of building scalable and decentralized facilities across the country. It is similar to the way Hamish Skermer and Natural Event have been doing it in Australia and Europe for over 20 years.
