Table 7 shows that T1R1 is the treatment which treated the largest amount of urine per gram of drying agent (9.4 mL) and that treatment represents the highest concentration factor (6.2) that means it was the most efficient treatment in terms of urine concentration. T2R1 had a higher concentration factor compared to T2R2 since T2R2 was replaced with new material after the third week. On the other hand, T3R1 and T3R2 have similar concentration factors that goes with their similar condition throughout the experiment.
