Sewage as a resource

We all tend to think of sewage as an unpleasant problem that has to be dealt with. It's time to rethink.

Concentrated sewage holds valuable contents

Jets™ vacuum sanitary systems use less than a liter of water for each flush to carry human waste. In other words, the sewage is only slightly diluted by water. The concentrated state of the sewage from a Jets™ system means that its valuable nutrients and energy can be reused to produce organic fertilizer, and to fuel biogas power plants.

Vacuum systems preserve what gravity systems destroy

In traditional gravity systems the amount of water used to flush the waste renders the sewage useless for both collecting and recycling nutrients, and for bioenergy fuel. Using a vacuum system eliminates this problem.
