August 12, 2016

InSinkErator, a business unit of St. Louis-based Emerson Electric Co., has introduced “Sustainable Kitchen Design: Solutions for Sinks,” a new continuing education unit course for AIA and ASID. The course was originally created for members of the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA), and now members of American Institute of Architects (AIA) and American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) may obtain learning units for attending the 60-minute offering, which provides a complete overview of sink appliance considerations when designing a sustainable kitchen. Specifics of different types of in-home water purification options and how to select a delivery system that fits clients’ needs are covered.

The course also educates about household and community waste management processes that impact kitchen design, including how food waste can be turned into renewable energy and usable fertilizer for farmers, landscapers and home gardeners.

InSinkErator recognized the value of helping educate architect and design communities several years ago,” said Joe Maiale, vice president, Wholesale Sales, InSinkErator. “Our expertise in food waste and water makes this course especially relevant. InSinkErator provides cost-effective solutions to eliminate water and food waste by using food waste disposers and hot water dispensers. Educating professionals about those issues, and discussing solutions and their implications helps all of our partners to continue making a positive change to our environment.”
