Development of i-ZEWATA model for zero waste

We have developed an Industrial Zero Waste Tiered Analysis model to help the manufacturing industry to implement zero waste initiatives and consequently prepare themselves to participate in Industrial Ecology initiatives.  

Establishing the Ecological Engineering Research Institute

We have established the Ecological Engineering Research Institute that promotes research in ecological engineering globally. 

A wetland in a box

One of our most successful innovations contributing to sustainable livelihoods is the development of the awetbox that is scalable, treating grey water and promoting improved water quality. The project is still in a pre commercialised phase pending additional technology improvements.
