Here’s a really cool technique for treating wastewater that treats up to 52,000 gallons of human waste a day, and produces clean water, fertilizer for food, and solar energy in the process. Makes me want to go on a retreat to the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies just to try it out (well, and take a rest, do yoga, get massages, learn stuff – basically my ideal retreat). This is yet another creative example of cradle-to-cradle technology, where one being’s waste is another’s food. This is a larger scale and power supplying version of my previous articles on home-use composting toilets and home use herb garden/worm bin/fish tank. This is also a practical solution to update our current faulty national sanitation system. Thanks to Yes! magazine for the link.
