Comments Off on Back To Wood: Andrej Malinin Recycles Old Newspapers Into New Furniture

Swedish designer Andrej Malinin uses recycled newspaper and colorful paper waste to create a strong, compostable material that resembles wood. By gluing together hundreds of paper layers using a water-based product, he turns paper back to wood. We spotted Malinin’s “Back to Wood” project at an Eco-creative contest that won him a space within this years’ Milan Design Week .

Comments Off on Ancient Protein May be Key to Unlocking Potential of Algae Biofuels

In a discovery that should help sustainable algae biofuels make the leap from an exotic curiosity to a mainstream fuel, researchers from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have identified an ancient protein that helps keep green algae from imbibing too much sunlight during photosynthesis . The protein, called LHCSR, is a molecular self-regulator that protects algae from a damaging overdose of sun. With a better understanding of how the protein functions, it may be possible to engineer strains of algae that can be grown economically in artificial photosynthesis systems, providing more stability and efficiency than an open pond without the expense of a bioreactor.
