Collaborations between Engineering, Social Science, Public Health, Agriculture, Natural Science

Non-traditional partnerships between engineering,  agriculture, the natural sciences, the social sciences, and health is necessary to  develop resilient wastewater resource recovery solutions for the future.

Non-traditional partnerships between engineering, agriculture, the natural sciences, the social sciences, and health is necessary to develop resilient wastewater resource recovery solutions for the future.

Systems that recover resources from waste are central to development. However, there are often financial and technological trade-offs associated with the cost of recovery of energy, water, and nutrients from waste. Non-traditional partnerships between stakeholders from multiple sectors will be an essential part of the solution for developing resilient resource recovery systems in the future.
