Dr. Tove Larsen is a chemical engineer with a PhD in process engineering from the Department of Environmental Science and Engineering, Technical University of Denmark. In 1999, she came to Eawag, the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology, to set up a cross-cutting project on urine source separation (Novaquatis). Novaquatis was successfully terminated in 2006 ( www.novaquatis.eawag.ch ) and won the swiss-academies award for transdisciplinary research in 2008 for its visionary, innovative and integrative approach to urban water management. At present Tove Larsen heads a group on ‘Concepts’ in the Department of Urban Water Management at Eawag. Tove Larsen led the Eawag project ‘Diversion for safe sanitation’, which won a special recognition price in the Reinvent The Toilet Challenge competition, launched by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

The webinar will last one hour and there will be time for responding to Tove's remarks. We hope you will be able to join us for this very informative presentation. You will be sent a link and reminder on August 15 in order to join this gathering.

Re: Urine Diversion Webinar: Tove Larsen's keynote address at the 3rd Annual Urine Diversion Summit (USA)

Dear Abraham,

Could you please tell us a bit more about this "3rd Annual Urine Diversion Summit, hosted by the Rich Earth Institute in Vermont, USA"?
Is there a website where the program and the presentations (and videos?) could be accessed?
How many people, and what kind of people, attended this? I am very curious.

Are you seeing increased uptake or interest in urine diversion systems in Vermont or the U.S. in general?

Regards,
Elisabeth
