Living Machines Conference


The Coalition for a Green Economic Recovery will hold a conference 
October 1 to 3, l993 to discuss and promote the economic andenvironmental 
advantages of living machines.  Living machines are, simplistically, 
engineered water ecosystems which use natural elements such as sunlight, 
plants and animals to break down toxins, concentrate metals and treat 
organic material in sewage and waste water. Living machines can be part of 
clean, simple, economical and environmentally viable solutions to a number 
of problems.  They offer less costly alternatives for municipalities 
planning to spend billions of taxpayers; dollars on expansions and new 
sewage and water treatment systems.  They do not use chlorine.
