Converting Wastewater to Nutrient-Rich Fertilizer

Nexcities, Water-Energy-Nutrient Nexus in the Cities of the Future, has the potential to improve local economies by creating jobs, enhancing agricultural practices, increasing food security and improving sanitation and the provision of clean water.

NexCities is the first project of its kind to focus on fertilizer production from wastewater in the Philippines

We look to create food security through potential development of a new business and social sector based on fertilizer recovery from septic wastewater in Metro Manila.

Project NexCities aims for economic development and social welfare in the Philippines, contributing to SDGs 6 "Clean Water and Sanitation" and 11 "Sustainable Cities and Communities".

We aim to usher a new social enterprising sector of wastewater-recovered fertilizer application in local farming. This will contribute to global food security, resilience and sustainable global development
