NJ Waste Recycling Company Looks at Waste Management as Key To Life on Mars


Arthur C. Clarke, preeminent science fiction author of “The Sentinel,” which was the basis of “2001: A Space Odyssey,” famously said to Walter Cronkite, “There is no such thing as waste, there are only resources we are too stupid to know how to use.”

Plans have been underway for many years to establish a space exploration colony on Mars. The goals of the colony would be to compare the geological evolution of Earth to Mars, search for bacteria and other microscopic life forms, and demonstrate the feasibility of sustaining human life in a foreign and hostile environment. This is a massive undertaking, and NASA engineers and scientists along with other members of the international space community have been considering the problem for a long time. At this point, it may prove possible to send an exploratory colony to Mars in 2012, and it would be scheduled to remain there for 600 days. The future is almost here.

As one can imagine, it is difficult to get materials to Mars and back, so everything has to be recycled. And we mean everything. An undertaking of this magnitude requires that every contingency be evaluated in advance. Waste Recycling Systems (WRS) are one such a thing. The purpose of WRS is to recycle human waste of every stripe to provide an ongoing supply of agricultural water, deliver potable water as an emergency back-up system, and augment the growth of plant and animal products.

The crew would have to grow their own food, produce their own water and oxygen, and provide their own protection against the perils of the environment. Among many other things, they would require a biomass recycling system to recapture human waste and reprocess it for later use elsewhere. Most of this material would be captured in their space suits. Carbon dioxide from breathing would be converted to water and oxygen, for example. And much like our existing sewage treatment plants but with many more refinements, other body evacuations such as urine and feces would be collected and reused as well. Some of this would be converted to energy for heating, and much of this material would provide liquid and compost fertilizer for plant life.
