Projeto transforma plástico de eletroeletrônicos em painéis solares

O volume de plástico produzido e o consumo incessante de novos aparelhos eletrônicos são duas das características mais comuns e presentes no cotidiano das pessoas. Simultaneamente, novas tecnologias surgem dia após dia, com a proposta de melhorar a relação entre o homem e o planeta. Identificando nestas questões uma grande oportunidade, a Instituição Social Ramacrisna, em parceria com a Uma, Uni-BH, UFMG e CDI, lançou o Própolis – Projeto Polímeros para a Inclusão Social, visando a redução da grande quantidade de plástico oriunda de aparelhos eletrônicos, com o objetivo de baratear o desenvolvimento de novos painéis de energia solar.

Em release oficial, Roberto Freitas, membro da equipe e coordenador do grupo de Polímeros da UFMG, destaca a efetividade do projeto, no fato dele conseguir aliar a questão ambiental da reciclagem dos polímeros com a questão econômica e social. Green Blade banana fiber panels provide a stylish, sustainable alternative to wood. Potassium-rich bananas are a staple for healthy eaters but did you know that the “tree” trunk is a valuable resource as well?

Green Blade banana fiber panels provide a stylish, sustainable alternative to wood

Martinique-based company FIBandCO transforms the bulk of the plant into “Green Blade” an all-natural, sustainable veneer used for decorative and acoustic panels. The exotic-looking material gives banana plants a second life and saves them from their typical fate of ending up as waste once the fruit has been harvested. Like bamboo, the banana plant is actually a grass, growing faster than traditional wood and reaching maturity at 9 months. In addition to promoting a rapidly renewable resource, Green Blade reduces deforestation, requires no water or glue in its production, and is manufactured in a factory powered entirely by photovoltaic panels.

A popular material amongst architects, designers, and furniture makers alike, Green Blade strikes an impressive balance of being stylish, sustainable, and eco-responsible.

Dr Lair Ribeiro , matando o câncer de fome. Hacking the Kitchen Sink to Stop Food Waste. Gardeners who have plucked a tomato from a homegrown vine or eaten herbs from a windowsill box know what little miracles such hard-won, slow-growing edibles are.

Hacking the Kitchen Sink to Stop Food Waste

It wasn’t until Rice University engineering student Andy Miller joined a campus agriculture club that he understood what it means when a fresh fruit or vegetable goes uneaten. "It's getting crazier and crazier to me to think that this really high-value material that gets grown somewhere, gets shipped to your house and you pick it out by hand, to think that like 20 percent of it—which is still really good for some things—is then just being chucked," Miller told TakePart. Unlike most home horticulturists, Miller and a team of like-minded engineering students at Rice—who came to call themselves (com)post haste—were in a position to innovate and do something about everyday food waste.

It’s more like a misplaced mesa. Only when you drive closer to the center of operations at the 700-acre Columbia Ridge Landfill in Arlington, Oregon, does the function of this place become clear. Some 35,000 tons of mostly household trash arrive here weekly by train from Seattle and by truck from Portland. Dump trucks inch up the gravel road to the top of the heap, where they tip their cargo of dirty diapers, discarded furniture, lemon rinds, spent lightbulbs, Styrofoam peanuts, and all the rest onto a carefully flattened blanket of dirt.

At night, more dump trucks spread another layer of dirt over the day’s deposits, preventing trash from escaping on the breeze. High-Powered Plasma Turns Garbage Into Gas. Plasma Power.

Plasma gasification commercialization. Plasma gasification is in commercial use as a Waste-to-Energy system that converts municipal solid waste (MSW), tires, hazardous waste, and sewage sludge into synthesis gas (syngas) containing hydrogen and carbon monoxide that can be used to generate power.

Municipal-scale waste disposal plasma arc facilities have been in operation in Japan and China since 2002. No commercial implementations in Europe and North America have succeeded so far. Plasma gasification commercialization. Plasma gasification. Process[edit] Small plasma torches typically uses an inert gas such as argon where larger torches require nitrogen. The electrodes vary from copper or tungsten to hafnium or zirconium, along with various other alloys.

A strong electric current under high voltage passes between the two electrodes as an electric arc. Pressurized inert gas is ionized passing through the plasma created by the arc.

New Study: Monsanto's Herbicide Chemical Damages DNA. A new peer-reviewed scientific study has found that soybean workers exposed to glyphosate suffer from DNA damage and elevated cell death. Adenine (A), cytosine (C), guanine (G), and thymine (T) are the components of nucleic acid that make up DNA, and biotech is making these important parts of our biology a mash-up that no sane person would ever want to experience. Soybean workers in Brazil exposed to fungicides herbicides and insecticides (the main three chemical classifications used extensively by the biotech farming model) experienced an elevated level of cellular apoptosis, as well as remarkable DNA damage according to the Elsevier published, Mutation Research/Genetic Toxicology and Environmental Mutagenesis. The research concentrated on Glyphosate and 2,4-D, two chemicals that practically cover all of the US farming landscape. They find: It isn’t just farm workers that need to be concerned, though.
