New Technologies for Accessing the Power in Waste By Karleen Kos, PSAI Executive Direct or Last week I was in Dakar, Senegal where the PSAI engaged with experts from organizations around the world to create an International Working Agreement (IWA) on non - sewered fecal sludge treatment units that are energy independent, prefabricated, and cap able of recovering resources from human and animal waste. What would that even look like? Well, it might look a lot like the Janicki Omni Processor. Shown here at the Niayes waste treatment center in Dakar, Senegal, the Janicki system began operating as a test site in May 2015. While I was there, we got to visit the site and learn more about how the system works. WEEKLY EDITION January 24, 2018 Quality Control in the Field By Karleen Kos, PSAI Exec utive Director *Note: This article first appeared in the April 12, 2017 issue of Association Insight . Quality Control in the Field has been a common roundtable topic at PSAI events and the ideas in this article remain relevant to our Members. For these re asons, it has been reprinted this week for your benefit. Every company that is successful over time has developed and implemented some sort of quality control program in the field. While doing this accomplishes several things, some of the most important t hings a QC program accomplishes are: • Making sure the driver is giving the best possible service to your customers. • Providing opportunities to train – or retrain – your drivers. It can also give you a chance to educate drivers on things you might not have talked about before that would enhance their service to your customers, save money or generate extra revenue. • Building in time for owners or other company leaders to meet job supervisors or event planners and show them you appreciate their business.
