Toelichting (Engels) The aim of this thesis research is to translate the four sustainability principles of The Natural Step framework in combination with the cradle to cradle design concept to the specific case of closing water and nutrient loops in existing households in The Netherlands. It will be determined if a decentralized community-on-site solution for wastewater treatment and closing water and nutrient loops is more sustainable than a centralized wastewater treatment solution as is currently common in The Netherlands. A case in a rural setting and a case in an urban setting will be considered. Both renovation of buildings including or excluding sewers (as the chance both sewer and building are renovated at the same time is very small) and solely renovation of the sewer system with minor changes to existing buildings are of interest, as long as they lead to a future proof overall design. As implementation of a fully future proof design may currently not be (technically, behaviourally, economically) feasible, stepping stones will be researched that enable future implementation of the fully sustainable design and enable present capturing of sustainability goals.
