Déjà Poo: Turning Wastewater to Nonpotable Water

Posted to Infographics  |  Nathan Yau

This infographic from Wired explains how Living Machines work to combine waste management and a garden in an office lobby. Honestly, I’m posting this for one reason only. The title is Déjà Poo. Brilliant. Yes. I am that immature.

  • The idea has been around; NASA installed one as an experiment on the Houston (Clear Lake) campus in the eighties. There seems to be a revival of trying to find ways to reuse blackwater and graywater in homes and businesses. One concern though that we are not addressing is that such systems are illegal in many states west of the Mississippi, because of Water Rights legislation.

    I like the graphic, and the title (who could resist it:)

  • This infographic looks wrong to me… girls don’t poop, everybody know it!

  • Love it Nathan, I had to repost as well. I agree, the title is awesome.

  • If someone could present a working poototype then perhaps some states may reconsider…
