Although removing phosphates from detergents was a problem for the manufacturers, they made the change for the good of society.
As we can see, a solution to one problem can lead to another one. Society often has to decide what is best for everyone. Do we ignore the new problems to use the solution or do we come up with an alternative answer to help the new problem, too? The solution you came up with for the KanCRN director may lead to problems we haven't thought about or haven't seen yet.
Another value that researchers may look at in this project is cost. Is your solution the most cost effective one? Often times the price of a solution determines whether it is used.
Other researchers may have opinions about your solution or about the project in general. Researchers can discuss these opinions in a variety of ways. Within KanCRN, these discussions take place in the discussion forum area. Everyone is invited to discuss various issues on this project as well as bring up questions. Link to the Discussion Area.
