Globally, we are moving more towards a bioeconomy, or bio-based economy. Biological processes fundamentally happen in water, and as such this global move is impacting water use significantly. We have identified wastewater as the most critical bottleneck in making a bioeconomy function sustainably, and thus we are working towards turning wastewater into an opportunity.
Supplementing other technology based processes that focus on a specific product or technology using wastewater, we look at the engineering behind what is required to make this bioproduction happen. We've named this concept 'wastewater biorefineries'. As such, we work as consulting partners with existing technologies and companies to make the concept of a circular economy a reality.
Back home, we have identified two additional challenges: the poor public perception of waste and science, and a lack of appropriate process control and analysis tools. Merah Mas addresses these challenges through two developments: Adventure Sport & Science Tourism (ASST) and ShackLabs.
