The Swedish development of “modern” urine diverting systems have been of interest also in an international context. This paper tries to describe this development as four sub-sequent phases with examples of UD systems in use. The paper discusses key aspects and critical factors for urine diversion to go to scale in Sweden as well as the lessons learned. In Sweden, urine diversion (UD) systems have been piloted and developed for more than 15 years. An estimate from 2006 states that there are more than 10,000 porcelain UD toilets installed in Sweden and that there are at least 10-15 larger systems for reuse of human urine in Sweden, most of these are managed by municipalities.
