United States

ASSIST has been working toward a more sustainable world since its inception. Our first project was a passive solar dryer for a farming cooperative in Blue Lake, California. Today, we continue our efforts to make our home more sustainable by incorporating sustainable technologies into our everyday lives. Current domestic projects include:

• Recycling programs at college campuses

• Increasing energy efficiency in community centers
• Increasing recreational and urban garden space
• Converting waste to energy

In addition to on-going assistance, future research programs include:

• Toxicological studies of energy contaminants
• Passive water treatment technologies
• Conversion of plastics to energy

ASSIST seeks to build partnerships between the private sector and nonprofit organizations as well as between nonprofit entities. If you are interested in becoming part of ASSIST’s domestic efforts, please contact us here.
