Total Resource Utilization (TRU) in various Market Sectors
Conventional waste management has limitations. The traditional method for managing waste has been to collect it and transfer it far away from the generating community to a landfill or a waste processing facility such as an incinerator. Similarly, conventional wastewater management calls for the transfer of used water to a centralized treatment facility where it is later discharged back into the environment.
What happens when a community or organization is forced, or chooses, to treat and eliminate its own waste and manage its own water resources? This is a common occurrence for certain situations, for example remote communities, military bases, industry and hospitals.Terragon allows waste and wastewater generators to convert these resources into energy and reusable water. Instead of paying to have waste removed by others, these waste streams can actually reduce costs within an organization or a habitat.
Some niche waste cannot be transferred conventionally and requires specialized and costly disposal. Terragon offers generators of industrial by-products, hazardous and pathological waste and wastewater streams an onsite and cost effective solution. Examples of human habitats where MAGSTM and WETTTM can provide sustainable and cost effective solutions include:
