Building a world of
resilient communities.

Rich Earth Institute

The Rich Earth Institute is dedicated to advancing and promoting the use of human waste as a resource. Through research, demonstration, and education projects, we strive to illustrate the positive effect of this approach in important areas including water quality, food security, energy use, soil health, economic sustainability, carbon footprint, public health, and emergency preparedness.

Since our work has so many dimensions, with implications for many different areas of society, we seek to bring together the knowledge of many disciplines and professions in order to create workable solutions. For this reason, the various perspectives of sanitary engineers, farmers, water quality advocates, businesspeople, agricultural scientists, and regulators are all represented among our board members and collaborators.
