With new developments in sustainable and ecological building, new technology sewage and waste disposal has emerged. The concept is to upcycle waste as valuable resource instead of flushing it away and allowing it to cause ecological damage on important aquatic ecosystems. Emerging technologies can be aesthetically pleasing, viably retrofit, and sanitary. In addition, the use of these technologies can save water, capture important nutrients as fertilizers for grounds, and are cost effective.
