To achieve true sustainability, we must reduce our 'garbage index" - that which we permanently throw away into the environment that will not be naturally recycled for reuse - to near zero. Productive activities must be organized as closed systems. Minerals and other nonbiodegradable resources, once taken from the ground, must become a part of society's permanent capital stock and be recycled in perpetuity. Organic materials may be disposed into the natural ecosystems, but only in ways that assure that they are absorbed back into the natural production system. - David C. Korten

When Amitek was established in 1994, its objective was clear – to supply
innovative solutions to the challenges faced by water and waste-water
treatment industries. Following the success of its initial drive, Amitek has
evolved into a network of fully-fledged regional branches and service
providers, focused on the requirements of customers throughout sub-Saharan
Africa and on Indian Ocean islands.
