Vision to Reality
Our team worked with Vision to Reality, a private company focused on tackling social and environmental challenges in Monteverde. The goal of the project was to improve Monteverdes waste management by designing a system that converts organic waste into sustainable resources. We performed in-depth research of the processes within the waste management system to better understand the treatment methods. Upon arrival, we interviewed experts to assess the current state of organic waste disposal. Based upon the findings of the interviews, we composed preliminary designs for systems, built small-scale demonstrations, and ran primary level trials for the reactors. The data collected allowed us to make proper recommendations on furthering the development of an integrated organic waste system.
