Papers to Practice Podcast: SOIL’s Dr. Sasha Kramer and Research Partner, Dr. Rebecca Ryal discuss GHG Emissions and Waste

Last week, SOIL Executive Director Dr. Sasha Kramer, was featured, along with research partner, Dr. Rebecca Ryals of UC Merced, on the Papers to Practice podcast to talk about some of the research they have done to better understand the positive environmental impacts of SOIL's service and waste treatment methodology. Specifically, the podcast focused on one of the publications produced from this work titled Greenhouse gas fluxes from human waste management pathways in Haiti. The Papers to Practice podcast features discussion with the authors of sanitation-related publications and highlights key points and takeaways in order to make the research and ...

Deriving financial benefit from SOIL’s climate mitigation action: is it possible?

Ground-breaking research on SOIL’s ecological sanitation service, published in the journal, Nature Climate Change, investigated the potential for container-based sanitation to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions when compared to other traditional waste treatment methods. The research revealed that SOIL’s service and method off off-site waste treatment effectively mitigates significant and measurable greenhouse gas emissions. The research is an exciting development for the sanitation sector and opens up the opportunity to explore carbon credits as a way to derive financial benefit, or additional revenue, from the service’s emission reduction ...
