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.
