Objective: 

This long-term project, funded by EPA under a program called "People, Planet, and Prosperity", characterizes the multiplicity of waste streams in New Orleans East in order to fashion an "Industrial Ecology" that will convert a, economically and environmentally distressed situation into a more positive one.  Environmental and social injustice is the focus of project; by converting environmental liabilities into clean sources of economic activity, the Payson center is working at the intersection of human need and environmental sustainability.
