blue_marbleII_300x252We live on an absolutely amazing piece of real estate circling a yellow star in a somewhat remote arm of the galaxy we call “Milky Way”. And until someone finally shows up at our ‘doorstep’, it appears that humans – if maybe not the most intelligent – are the dominant species on this planet in this little corner of the universe.

Among all the interesting discoveries made, there is one recurrent theme: water appears to be absolutely essential to all known forms of life on this planet.

And what’s more all life on this planet is interlinked in a myriad of pathways and relationships. All sharing the lifeblood of the planet: “Water”.

Yet we [humans] – despite our advanced educational system – continue to ignore fundamental and basic principles of biological connection between sanitation – clean water & nutrition.

Wastewater treatment processes currently used for ‘sanitation’ are expensive, energy hungry, emit vast amounts of methane, CO2 and other GHGs – even some nitrogen precursors that together all cause environmental damage on an industrial scale.

The Ellenbach Foundation owns enabling technologies, know-how and process knowledge that makes placement of sustainable wastewater infrastructure economically possible in even the most remote locations where human settlement may warrant it.
