The Renewable Energy Solutions Water Quality Outreach sub-team is researching waste separation processes, with a focus on waste-composting toilets and water quality in the Ithaca area. Toilets account for nearly a quarter of domestic wastewater, so improving the sustainability of this waste stream would have major impacts. Through outreach with the local community, the team aims to see where such technologies may be feasible, and conduct research to advance their usage. The team has also recently begun researching partnerships in Puerto Rico after several members took part in a trip with their advisor in Puerto Rico over spring break in 2022.
