    Lauren’s is a good answer, and I didn’t think about that. I know of another way that we are already making human waste work for us. Waste to energy plants use urea (the chemical compound found in urine) for a process in which “Nitrogen oxides that […] form are reduced by spraying ammonia or urea into the hot exhaust (a technology called Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction), which converts nitrogen oxides to harmless nitrogen and water.” Pretty cool, huh?
