Dani Peguero awarded “Poverty Alleviation through Sustainable Solutions (PASS)” Grant for Summer Field Work

Dani Peguero awarded Blum Center field research grant.

Congratulations to group member Dani Peguero for being awarded a summer travel grant for field work in Durban, South Africa from the Blum Center for Developing Economies. The PASS Grant awards “highly motivated students with a passion for working to reduce poverty and inequality.”

Dani will be studying the microbial treatment efficacy of a novel treatment technology, the viscous heater, that will be used to process and sanitize fecal sludge from pit latrines commonly used in non-sewered sanitation systems.

This project is being conducted in collaboration with Professor Gary Foutsch (University of Missouri – Kansas City) and Chris Buckley (Pollution Research Group, University of KwaZulu Natal).
