Changing the Way the World Thinks About Waste The current focus of Merah Mas is water, specifically domestic municipal wastewater treatment - Sanitation (expanding to 'composting with a twist' - in the near future). We aim to use non-sterile conditions, and non-genetically modified organisms, in order words, natural, indigenous little bacteria, fungi etc along with smart bioprocess engineering design to produce valuable products from dilute resources (previously considered waste).

My favourite presentation I ever gave, ever.    Creating Community - what a bioprocess engineer is learning about life, tameness and our attempts at 'sustainability'.

"The reason why you're not finishing is because you don't have a plan" he said. "You need to just put a peg in the ground and work towards it" he said. "My stomach knots at the thought of it" I said. "Tough luck", he said.     So here's a plan.

POOP SCOOP, HOW TO  MAKE MONEY FROM WASTE    - by Sumitra Nydoo    It's not often you find young women sorting through crap, 31-year-old Bernelle Verster is and she's making a career of it. Raised in Johannesburg, South Africa [edit: Benoni], Verster is studying for her PhD in bioprocess engineering at UCT. She specializes in sifting through wastewater.    "I look for the nutrients in the sewage", says Verster.

I had to submit a project abstract for the very fluid PhD. I like this one.    Wastewater biorefineries move away from the traditional wastewater treatment objectives. This concept considers not only the efficient product recovery of both the bioproduct and water product, but also needs to take into account the complexities of having many, very different stakeholders engage in what approaches a hyper-networked ecosystem economy.
