L’uritonnoir Dry Urinal
L’uritonnoir dry urinal is a funnel-like urinal for outdoor use in public or private venues.
The L’uritonnoir is a dry urinal device designed by integrating a urinal and a funnel. It can be used in a variety of outdoor spaces by inserting the device into a bale of hay, which will decompose as nitrogen (from urine) is added.
The urinal is primarily marketed in France, but has also been promoted by festivals in the European Union.
The urinal is sold online to individual customers by Faltazi.
Although alternative water-free urinals are marketed, there are no other portable, outdoor options available for sale. However, individuals are able to build their own dry-urinal in outdoor settings.
Goal 6: Clean water and sanitation
The dry urinal is targeted at male users in outdoor settings, including campers, festival attendees, and people in public gardens.
The urinal is cut from 1-2 millimeter polypropylene sheets and treated for ultraviolet and frost to enhance the lifespan. The polypropylene is then pre-folded and printed with instructions to ensure that users can assemble their own urinal.
Users can obtain the products from the L’uritonnoir website.

The uritonnoir was designed to combine a urinal with a funnel. To make the product portable and suitable to changing outdoor venues, 1-2 millimeter polypropylene was chosen as the material and the structure was printed on a flat sheet that could be folded into the three-dimensional urinal.
User support is provided by the distributors at Faltazi, and an instructional manual is available to customers.
The urinal is made up of one sheet of plastic without additional components. Therefore rather than replacement components, replacement urinals are available on the manufacturer’s website.
The lifetime of the urinal is unknown, but the capacity associated with the hay bails in which they are placed depends on the number of users. The manufacturer recommends a maximum of 60 users per Uritonnoir per straw meter.
Designer specified performance targets include the urinal not smelling, being easy to clean for continual use, and be usable by both adults and children.
The urinal was only tested by the manufacturer.

The risk of fire associate with having hay bales around a festival venue can be mitigated by humidifying the bales or providing a water extinguisher when the weather is dry.
The urinal must be used together with hay bales in order for the urine to be collected properly, and to produce compost.
The functionality of urinals is evaluated visually by observing design layouts to determine if they are optimally placed, and gauging urinal use to ensure that adequate hay is provided to prevent smell.
L’uritonnoir provides urinal and hay-bale layout support specific to user and event types, available in their manual.
