SWB’s research and development team, previously known as project development team is new, aiming to build a collection of our technologies on campus in Ann Arbor. By having prototypes of these technologies near campus we think that SWB members can learn about the technologies that we are implementing abroad.
Specifically we are managing a collection of technologies in a greenhouse in the Matthaei Botanical Gardens. We are trying to create prototypes of: the aquaponics system, solar panel pumps, an aerobic digester, ozonation, micro hydro turbine and biosand filters. Fall 2016 we are building a hoop house to contain all the prototypes and demo systems.
We also hope to make these technologies available to students throughout the University of Michigan to benefit from these prototypes.
