North Peak House Goes Above and Beyond Austin’s Green Building Standard

Comments Off on North Peak House Goes Above and Beyond Austin’s Green Building Standard

The two-story North Peak House is located at the edge of a neighborhood bordered by sloping woodlands on the south and an open field to the north. Built with regionally sourced limestone, on-site boulders and sustainably-sourced wood, the home is situated for passive solar design and it utilizes deep overhangs for shading, operable windows for natural ventilation, and it’s heated and cooled with geothermal heat pumps. The owners are both professors at the University of Texas and one of them used the house as a research lab to learn more about healthy indoor air quality in homes. Working with Furman + Keil , she scrutinized each product to ensure that nothing harmful would come into her home. The project received 207 out of 165 points through the Austin Energy Green Building program and it eschews VOCs, formaldehyde and carpeting. Local and sustainably sourced products are used throughout including bamboo flooring, concrete & recycled glass countertops, reclaimed wood, and sustainably harvested decking. A high-reflectance standing seam metal roof is prepped for the addition of a photovoltaic system, and the envelope was tightly sealed and insulated to minimize energy loss. + Furman + Keil Architects Images ©Casey Dunn Photography

Comments Off on Scientists Convert Algae into Crude Oil in Less than One Hour

Department of Energy scientists at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory say they’ve reduced nature’s million year process of turning algae into crude oil to one than takes less than an hour . The engineers created a chemical process that produces crude oil minutes after it is poured into harvested algae. The reaction is not only fast, but also continuous since it produces a recyclable by product containing phosphorus that can then be used to grow more algae. Watch a video of the process after the jump.
