"Space Waste Management"

"Space Waste Management"," It is a responsibility of every human being on this earth and somehow we do it with utmost care. Shocking but true! There is a dire need to introduce a proper space waste management system to deal with this unforeseen danger. The waste management in the spacecrafts or the space stations cannot be undertaken in isolation. Jean Hunter, an associate professor of agricultural and biological engineering, has been working with research partner Orbital Technologies Corp. , to develop a revolutionary trash dryer for NASA. Further, this water is purified for drinking purposes and the trash remains dry, odorless and static. The technique is called Heat-pump dehumidification frequently used for drying lumber. Sounds interesting!
