Public Lab: a DIY environmental science community Agralogics | The Internet of Food R biglm with categorical variables DIF Biomimicry Challenge - Think Dif - Disruptive Innovation Festival DIF Biomimicry Challenge Use biomimicry to radically improve an aspect of the food system to fit within a circular economy. During this challenge, participants are asked to: "Use biomimicry to radically improve an aspect of the food system (e.g. production, packaging, nutrient recovery) to fit within a circular economy." So, how do you get started on a challenge as large and complex as the food system? First of all, you’ll need to become familiar with the various parts of the food system and how they are related. The following information is provided to help you understand the breadth of the challenge and assist you in narrowing your focus on a specific design opportunity. Download the Biomimicry Challenge brief here Identifying a Design Opportunity To build a food system that works with the circular economy we will need solutions at a variety of scales and in a variety of sectors, all working together in a system.

www.inmatteria.com Amazon Web Services (AWS) - Cloud Computing Services Planeta Sustentável | Sistema de tratamento ecológico recupera rios poluídos e cria jardins flutuantes E se fosse possível recuperar rios poluídos gastando pouco dinheiro? Essa é a ambição do sistema de tratamento de água ecológico que pode ser instalado em rios, canais e lagos contaminados. Criado pela empresa escocesa Biomatrix Water, a tecnologia já despoluiu o canal Paco, da cidade de Manila, nas Filipinas. Além de melhorar a qualidade da água e aumentar a biodiversidade aquática, o sistema revitalizou a paisagem do canal filipino, que antes era destino final de lixo e esgoto. Isso porque usa “jardins flutuantes”, que são ilhas artificiais, de aproximadamente 110 m², cobertas por plantas aquáticas capazes de filtrar poluentes. O sistema ainda tem outra vantagem: o custo da despoluição é menor do que a metade do que gastam estações de tratamento de águas residuais convencionais, segundo a empresa. No vídeo abaixo, saiba como funciona a engenhoca:
