Abstract
A conceptual design was prepared for an Environmental Service Module; a combined water purification, waste disposal, and sanitation system, complete with consumer facilities, for use in remote locations, such as Canada's Arctic, by small groups of from 50 to 200 people in mobile units or permanent settlements. The Module will treat both sanitary and municipal type wastes, producing a sterile, compact residue, which can be easily and safely disposed of. Water of potable quality is also produced from the waste and is recycled for bathing, laundering and toilet flushing, while drinking and cooking water is supplied by separate equipment working from an unused raw water source, such as sea water, melted ice or snow, lakes or rivers etc.
