Set up urine banks, produce urea: Nitin Gadkari | India News

| TNN | Nov 14, 2017, 04:20 IST

NAGPUR: Union minister Nitin Gadkari has suggested that urine banks be set up in every tehsil/taluka so urea can be produced and given to farmers to be used as fertilizer. This will be a step towards minimizing import of urea, he feels.

Speaking to TOI on Monday, Gadkari said that though the idea is at a very early stage, he is trying to make it a reality by working with Swedish scientists. “Human urine contains a lot of nitrogen… We already have organic substitutes for phosphorous and potassium.”

Gadkari said farmers in villages will be expected to take the urine to taluka centres in 10-litre cans. He said initial tests will be carried out at a lab in Dhapewada village near Nagpur. Former Neeri director Tapan Chakrabarti said the idea is a workable one.
