Beyond the immediate objective of this prize (to incentivize technological breakthroughs in the development of community-scale, localized wastewater treatment and resource recovery solutions) what are the impact goals that would be audacious but achievable for this prize?
We are looking at setting targets for:
A certain number of liters of treated and reusable wastewater; and
A certain amount of value from extracted materials.
Are these the right high-level goals for this prize? Are there other metrics we should be tracking?
What would meaningful, audacious targets to set both globally or just in terms of teams coming out of this prize by 2030?
