Nexus Tools // Nutrient-Energy-Water/NEW Nexus Toolkit

The Nutrient-Energy-Water/NEW Nexus Toolkit is aiming to help public and private-sector professionals find resources on onsite water reuse systems. Results can be filtered by audience, barrier and resource type. The Project is sponsored by the Scherman Foundation and collaborative grants from International Living Future Institute and Oregon Environmental Council.

NEW Nexus systems integrate centralized and decentralized water conservation and reuse, nutrient recovery, and energy-generating approaches and technologies that provide for the needs of people and watersheds.

The Nutrient-Energy-Water/NEW Nexus Toolkit will help public and private-sector professionals find resources on onsite water reuse systems created by recode and others.

This work is sponsored by the Rosin Fund of the Scherman Foundation and was created under a collaborative grant with International Living Future Institute (ILFI) and Oregon Environmental Council. The toolkit will be developed over the course of our grant, which ends in 2019.

Nexus Modelling // Involving the Water–Energy–Food Nexus in Integrating Low-Income and Isolated Communities

By Brenda Cansino-Loeza and José María Ponce-Ortega. This work presents a general mathematical programming model for satisfying water, energy, and food needs in isolated and low-income communities involving different process integration approaches. As a case study, the community with the lowest index of poverty and marginalization from the State of Guerrero in Mexico is presented. The problem consists in determining the optimal and sustainable configuration to satisfy the energy, water, and...

Video // Green Pumps for Jordan’s Water to combat Climate Change

This video explains how highly energy efficient water pumps can contribute to improve water, energy, and food security in the water scarce country Jordan. At the same time, CO2-emmissions are lowered, which marks a significant contribution in meeting Jordan´s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to the Paris Agreement.
