What's new: ECS GROWTH
Freestate Farms, Virginia
Howard County, Maryland
To keep up with our success we’ve added three new staff…Welcome Aimee, Anna and Morgan!
Amiee is a recent graduate of Boston University and is now part of the ECS engineering team. Aimee also assists as an engineer for Toilet Tech Solutions. Prior to working at ECS, she applied her passion for sustainable waste management and sanitation systems as a member of Engineers Without Borders. Aimee most recently worked as an energy engineering research assistant at Penn State University investigating electrochemical systems and biomass conversion.
Anna is our new Sales and Marketing Manager for TTS and comes to us from NOAA’s Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory. After many years in the field of conservation genetics, she is turning her energy towards sustainable waste management solutions for outdoor recreation areas. She is an avid hiker and backpacker that has experienced the “pits” of many a trail-head and back country toilet and is working to change that for future generations and their environment. When shes not marketing toilets or out in the mountains, she's probably out on the water sailing!
Morgan is part of the team in our UL Listed electrical panel shop helping to assemble, test, and QC all of our fabricated equipment destined for our client facilities. Morgan has a degree in Environmental Science from San Diego State University and she now lives in Seattle with her partner and three pugs. The last couple of years Morgan has gained skills in assembly that made her realize she loved to put things together and would like a career doing just that. She is enjoying her position at ECS and looks forward to working with everyone.
Howard County Success Story From Concept, to Pilot, to Full Scale Facility in Just 7 Years.
Howard County, Maryland, needed proven and cost effective technology for composting their food and yard wastes. They began cautiously by researching technologies and then touring selected compost facilities. In 2012 they issued an RFP for a pilot system so that they could prove to themselves that their process assumptions could be achieved with their staff and with their feedstocks at their facility. The pilot worked and in 2013 they chose ECS to work with their engineering company to design and build their new compost facility. Last month ECS engineers completed the start up of the Howard County facility and shortly after they held their grand opening. Howard County has our thanks and congratulations for a project very well-conceived and executed.
