Today was our annual board retreat facilitated by Diana Wahle. We celebrated our successes and set forth goals for the coming year.  We also celebrated a birthday, remembered Molly Dowd who was at our retreat in 2014, laughed and cried, ate great food, and enjoyed each others’ company on a very cold January day.

After lunch, our experimental design team worked on the heat exchanger for our mobile pasteurizing unit.

After it was assembled, they ran a test on the efficiency and were most pleased with the results. Initial calculations show that it will cost $4 of electricity to pasteurize 1,000 gallons of urine.


We anticipate our VT State permit being complete in a month or two and we’ll be ready to take this on the road in the Spring of 2015!
