Much of his research career was devoted to pollution and the disturbance of the natural earth processes due to humanity. As such, he has dedicated time to establishing more effective waste control, human waste control, and regeneration. One of the sites that Mr. Plutchak researched was the 106-mile site in New York City, where all the city's septic tank waste is put out to sea.
