If it helps maybe you should direct your research to waste treatment plants. In Australia ive heard of one company processing the human waste to a level that is safer for human contact the processed material solids and liquids are put in large compost windrows and managed that way. Basically inoculating the compost with the waste and breaking it down to a soil form. All of the benefits but a more refined product that people don't think twice about buying.

Let us know what you find on the subject it is interesting and exciting to see good management of waste that can benefit the environment

If you happen to own a football stadium--you could pipe the result of all those urinals to a big tank in the basement--there is your raw material. I know of a green-trending horticultural garden that has water-free urinals--they do not flush--don't waste water. I am not sure what is the analysis of the raw material--but it could be diluted as needed. Perhaps freeze dried to reduce weight for easy shipping. Easier to handle, more sanitary than sewage in general.

Perhaps used to feed ornamental trees at a nursery--non edible crop to reduce the ick factor.

I've tried it on my lawn. It greens the lawn some...

However, it's "spotty" at best. I'll have to figure out how to apply it more evenly.

Why not. The ancient Romans used it as mouthwash. I am sure there must be many good uses for it.
