Oregon-based manufacturer Nutrient Recovery Services (NRS) created a sustainable fertilizer from the building’s waste, rainwater and solar energy.

NRS operation captures critical nutrients needed to grow food and fiber. The process relies on renewable resources, with the manufacturing process powered by 100 percent solar energy and harvested rainwater.

Through this pioneering process, NRS recovers 98 percent of nutrients from high-strength waste creating products free of impurities, such as pharmaceuticals. The company manufactures a clean liquid nitrogen-rich fertilizer and a powdered phosphorus-rich fertilizer. The fertilizers are safe ready-to-use products for all edible, ornamental and native landscapes.

“Our vision at Nutrient Recovery Services is to develop ways every community can help shift toward a more resilient agriculture system,” said Pete Munoz, co-founder of NRS. “By creating ecologically sound agricultural additives and fertilizers, we aim to contribute to the development of a robust circular nutrient economy that repairs the way we produce food and fiber in our communities.”

The fertilizer products are now available online and at stores in the Portland region.
