This week’s Solution of the Week comes from Erik K. and his colleagues, who post a solution under the sustainability category.
Every year millions of dollars are spent sending animal waste to treatment facilities where waste from zoos is treated in unsustainable ways. To save money and develop a more sustainable treatment method, this EPICS group at ASU poses a plan to treat animal waste at zoos with algae. This sustainable process can sanitize the waste and potentially be used as future animal feed.
