Humanosphere.info - Transformer 1kg de plastique en 1 litre de pétrole Japon – Plastique : Une société japonaise a créé une machine qui transforme des sacs en plastique en pétrole brut. Comment? En inversant le processus. Car si du pétrole peut fabriquer des sacs… le contraire est possible aussi. … Que l’invention de Monsieur Akinori Ito de chez Blest corporation , peut transformer 1 kg de plastique en 1 litre de pétrole de manière beaucoup plus propre. Le procédé chauffe le plastique dans un lieu complètement étanche. Mieux!

ART D'ECO & DESIGN: The Light Shoe, Eco ballerinas... Platified - Recyclage plastique Plastified.org from Sam Guillemette on Vimeo. Plastified.org propose des outils en libre partage servant à transformer, à l’échelle locale, du plastique rescapé du flux de la collecte sélective pour en faire du filament utilisable dans une imprimante 3D personnelle, appareil de plus en plus accessible. Cette hyperdémocratisation de la technologie 3D est au cœur du projet qui veut en réduire l’impact environnemental potentiellement très grand. Le plastique étant déjà un fardeau pour les infrastructures de gestion des déchets du monde entier, nous ne pouvons pas nous permettre de faire entrer dans nos foyers des machines qui augmenteront considérablement notre consommation de plastique et par le fait même, nos déchets. Ce site met donc à la disposition de tous le processus de fabrication d’une déchiqueteuse à plastique ainsi que d’une extrudeuse à filament pour imprimante 3D. Cette plateforme web permet aux futurs utilisateurs de nourrir et améliorer le projet suite à leurs expériences.

Instructables - Plastic Bottle Mosquito Trap Hello dear friends! As some of my followers already know, I live in Bologna (Italy), in the heart of Po river Valley. This area is known as the wettest one of Italy. These factors result in very hot temperatures in summer, very cold ones in winter, an incredibly thick fog but, mostly, giant and aggressive mosquitoes. There is a city, Comacchio (only 55 miles from Bologna), that is known as the "Mosquitoes Town". Obviously is nothing tropical, but it's very annoying! It's really difficult to enjoy summer evenings without using pesticides, sprays or other stinky poisons. While mosquitoes are useful for the ecosystem (did you know that mosquitoes are the main cocoa plants pollinators? In this Instructable, I want to show you an all natural and potentially free way to create an efficent mosquito trap with little more than a plastic bottle! Why potentially free? Ready? Let's start with our shopping list.

Treehugger - From trash to treasure: Could non-recycled plastic be turned into a low-carbon fuel? As part of our efforts to diversify our energy sources, it's great to see the surge in interest and development of renewable energies such as solar and wind power, and innovations in tidal and wave power, but to really be able to reduce our use of fossil fuels, we might need to also explore some of our other options, such as using materials extracted from our waste streams as fuel. One emerging technology is working toward converting some of the non-marketable post-consumer plastics into a solid low-carbon fuel. While recycling of some plastics back into other materials makes sense for closing the loop on plastics a bit, until we can divert all recyclables from the waste stream, using some of it as an alternative fuel may be yet another way we can diversify our energy sources. "Although recycling rates have increased over the last few decades, more than 50% of our waste still ends up in landfills.

Plastic2oil - Converting Plastic to Oil Growing Onions Vertically On The Windowsill | Auntie Dogma's Garden Spot Growing Onions Vertically On The Windowsill How nice would it be to just be able to pluck fresh green onions from the soil whenever you need them? Nothing beats fresh onions for your salads, dips or soup. But how can you ensure a supply of fresh onions at hand all the time? Sure, onions are available all year round from the supermarket, but they are hardly fresh and there’s almost always no way to know for sure where they came from. Gardeners of course will simply grow them but some simply have problems with available space. I came across an image of spring onions grown vertically on the windowsill, using a common 5 Liter PBS bottle, which I thought was a practical, space-saving and green way to grow onions. …and since I was curious myself, I did a bit of research and this is what I found: FIRST, you need a planting vessel: NEXT, you need to remove the neck of the bottle then cut holes around it. NEXT, fill the bottle with layers of onion sprouts and soil. NEXT, water it… Like this:

The Plastic Bank - Harvesting Waste Plastic to Reduce Poverty Thank you for helping us reach our goal. Our first campaign is over but another one will be coming soon. Please go to to join the Social Plastic movement. We are Leading the Social Plastic Movement! When we reveal value in plastic, it becomes too valuable to throw away and too valuable to leave sitting on a beach or in the ocean. We are proudly leading the Social Plastic movement and we invite you to join the movement with your contributions. Our Solution to Reduce Poverty & Waste Plastic World Wide The Plastic Bank is setting up plastic repurposing centers around the world, where there’s an abundance of both waste plastic and poverty. We are helping people ascend from poverty by rewarding them for removing plastic waste from the land, oceans and waterways. With your help people in need around the world will have the opportunity to collect enough plastic waste to ascend from poverty. Did We Mention We Can Recycle ANY Kind of Mixed Plastic Simply put.

Une larve dévoreuse de plastique, nouvel espoir pour l'environnement La découverte d'une larve capable de dévorer le polyéthylène, l'une des matières plastiques les plus résistantes, utilisées dans de nombreux emballages, offre la perspective de bio-dégrader rapidement ce polluant qui s'accumule dans l'environnement, notamment les océans. "Les déchets plastiques sont un problème environnemental mondial, surtout le polyéthylène, particulièrement résistant et qui est très difficilement dégradable naturellement", explique Federica Bertocchini, une chercheuse au Centre espagnol de la recherche nationale (CSIC), auteure de la découverte de cette larve de la fausse teigne de la cire (Galleria mellonella), un papillon très répandu. Cette larve, élevée commercialement en grand nombre pour servir d'appât pour la pêche, est à l'état sauvage un parasite des ruches qui se niche dans la cire d'abeilles, partout en Europe. "Extrêmement rapide" Extrait de la revue Current Biology 400 ans dans la nature

Atomic Shrimp Other Projects I Have In Mind To Tackle: I want to make a machine that paints pictures - either a big paint plotter, or something that works as (some kind of) robotic analogue of the human arm. Wind turbine - I want to see if it can be done on next to no budget. Parabolic mirror array (or some kind of mirror suitable for solar experiments, including cooking) Rudder autopilot for the boat - I think I actually have all the parts for this; I've got microcontrollers, servo motors, an electronic compass module... Something that makes use of the glue lamination techniques I learned when I made the boat - maybe a rocking chair, maybe a sledge... A MAME arcade cabinet Something that makes use of wooden gears Some kind of musical automaton - maybe an automatic xylophone A Backpack Tubulum - that is, a musical instrument as used by the Blue Man Group - one of these: An underwater webcam, or maybe a remote-controlled underwater vehicle, with a camera built in. A lobster/crab pot - how hard can it be?

Drink Can Tinwork Tinwork Embossed tinwork is sometimes used to decorate rustic style photo or mirror frames, or just to make decorative items such as Christmas tree decorations. The metal used is usually thicker (tinplate) and is normally worked with hammered tools - I wanted to try to get a similar effect, but with a bit less effort. The Most Popular ArticleOn Atomic Shrimp No, really! More Metalwork If this project interested you, you might also like Lost Wax Casting Safety This project makes use of very thin sheet metal that is likely to have sharp, jagged edges and is prone to springing back. Great care should be taken to avoid injury. This project probably isn't suitable for children - and certainly not without supervision. Updated Autumn 2010 - now with Video Goodness! Please note: Before, during or after the video, the player may display advertisements or links to additional videos - these are not affiliated to Atomic Shrimp and the selection is something over which I have no control.
