We link scientific innovation to the benefit of every day people: climate adaptation, biochemistry, biotechnology

The transition towards sustainability (healthy planet, healthy people, healthy profits) requires new behaviours.  

Specifically, we need to set a goal of never letting garbage reach a landfill or garbage dump. 

Instead, we embrace a Circular Economy in which we reuse wha...

A Circular Bio-Economy requires three things:

1. Reuse of materials

2. Focus on ecology and biology

3. Economic models that work (which by default means financial models that work)

Even in a Circular Bio-Economy, the circulation of money is the driver for transactions and...

CSTI - What inspires us: 


We are a multidisciplinary team of researchers and practitioners who believe that the scientific and technological knowledge we develop is a legacy trust we create for the community.

Some people are artists, others give inspirational speeches.  We deliver understanding that can be adapted to solve ecological and industrial problems.  The eagerness with which this understanding is received and used is what inspires us to do our work.

We  must treat the earth well. It was not given to us by our parents, it is loaned to us by our children.

Mtunze ardhi vyema. Hamkupewa na wazazi, bali mlikopeshwa na wazawa wenu. (Swahili)
