Waste Management: Chemosynthetic Production of Biomass Using Sewage Nutrients by CO2 Negative/RCP 2.6
Apr 21, 2015
Hi Michael, Thank you for your great proposal. One thing I would suggest is for you to give even a brief answer to the last few questions under the description. You propose a lot of references that back your proposal but questions about costs, implementation (by who and where), for instance, are necessary when getting a first glimpse at your proposal.

Hello Aissatou, Thanks for the feedback. I'm attempting to stake out the core technologies I plan on using to help prevent crossing over the technical scope of the works of other presenters while providing others with an idea of what will be put forth on this particular subject by myself. Sewage solid waste management has significant value to the search for a net negative global emissions scenario solutions. Plastic waste conversion can also be folded into the suite of technologies that are being proposed. As I flesh this outline out, please let me know your thoughts and comments. I do hope for as much collaboration as possible.

The Judges' comments are posted below. Please incorporate answers to these comments in your revisions, or your proposal may not be advanced to the Finalists round. Judges 1: The proposal is appealing and clear and has the potential for moderate impact on a major issue. However, I question the feasibility of utilizing the existing terrestrial utility infrastructure to implement the plan, either by utilizing existing lines no longer in service (usually for good reason) or by installing new lines along existing ROWs (potentially prohibitively expensive). The use of ocean-based reactors has promise on a pilot scale level but I fail to see it happening at large scale at this time simply due to political and public opposition to anything based at sea (e.g. windmills, drilling platforms). There is a vast amount of infrastructure required to scale up this proposal. No information was provided with regard to where, cost, timeline, or emissions reduction make it difficult to fully support. Thank you for your great work and again, congratulations!

Hello Annalyn, The problem of dropping text/revisions has happened again. In particular, the proposals at: https://www.climatecolab.org/web/guest/plans/-/plans/contestId/1301420/planId/1314310 https://www.climatecolab.org/web/guest/plans/-/plans/contestId/1301402/planId/1314411 omitted important text changes in multiple sectors. Please compare what I copied and pasted into a...final version.... Google Doc....(which I created as a last chore on that proposal after coordinating all info on both of the above proposals) as opposed to what ended up in the CoLab Docs. Final version of my work on both 'Waste Management' and 'Atypical Ideas for Carbon Neutrality' https://docs.google.com/document/d/1cJW-z8cBZ9akqcpLgLztaPQ6FX-zMtpz-0r2_Hc_oMg/edit#heading=h.p67pwkldmidp Further, I've referenced 'Global Scale: Chemosynthetic Management of the Water/Energy/Nutrient Nexus-WENN' within https://www.climatecolab.org/web/guest/plans/-/plans/contestId/1301402/planId/1314411 and the link takes it to 'Energy/Water Nexus' https://www.climatecolab.org/web/guest/plans/-/plans/contestId/1301501/planId/1315115 The numerous faults in accurately portraying my work are becoming almost too numerous for me to check. Please help me properly get the work I've accumulated to the judges on both contests. Please pass on the Final Version Google Doc https://docs.google.com/document/d/1cJW-z8cBZ9akqcpLgLztaPQ6FX-zMtpz-0r2_Hc_oMg/pub Warmest regards, Michael
