Clean Air in California? Easier Than You May Think! In the run up to California Clean Air Day, join GreenBiz for a conversation about some of the available and affordable solutions that are delivering a real lasting impact in California’s fight against air pollution and climate change.  Certain regions in the United States, particularly in California, continue to face an air pollution crisis. Fighting air pollution, and the many health issues caused by it, means accelerating the phase out of fossil fuels. And doing so could save millions of lives and billions of dollars. In this one-hour webcast, Neste US President Jeremy Baines, California Air Resources Board Executive Officer Richard Corey, and GreenBiz Sr. Transportation Writer & Analyst Katie Fehrenbacher, will explore how advanced biofuels and the circular economy are measurably helping in our collective fight against air pollution and climate change. Importantly, it will provide solutions that any forward-thinking business or city can choose to use right now. Among the topics: How renewable diesel can accelerate the phase out of fossil fuels, enabling cities and businesses to quickly and affordably achieve their climate goals.  How the City of Oakland created a closed-loop, circular economy that benefits its residents. One where the city’s fleet runs on 100% renewable fuel made from the city’s waste. What fuels have played the biggest role in the LCFS to date, where the regulation is heading, and what businesses and cities can do now to help “future proof their fleets.

Who has the most sustainable fleets? Time to name names Katie Fehrenbacher Wed, 08/26/2020 – 00:30 Sustainable fleets are at an inflection point , and we here at GreenBiz are looking to celebrate them. That’s why I’m particularly excited to share that GreenBiz plans to publish the top 25 list of sustainable fleets the week before our annual VERGE 20 conference (which will run virtually the last week in October).  The list will highlight the most innovative and aggressive companies, cities, governments and organizations buying and advocating for zero- and low-carbon vehicles, as well as using other technologies that can significantly reduce transportation emissions.  Many types of vehicle fleets move people and goods, or do important work in our cities, and we’ll consider them all as contenders — from passenger vehicles to delivery vans to transit and school buses to garbage trucks to long haul trucks. We’ll also consider all technologies from battery electric to alternative fuels to efficiency tech. Who’s being aggressive? Who’s being innovative? Who is rapidly speeding toward a goal to decarbonize their fleet?  Let us know! Fill out this form with more information about your/their organization. We’re asking for submissions until Sept. 30. If you have any questions, drop me a line: katie@greenbiz.com .

Modumetal’s revolutionary technology grows super-tough metal like a tree

Comments Off on Modumetal’s revolutionary technology grows super-tough metal like a tree

The processes used to extract and utilize metals are typically highly energy intensive, with ores extracted from mines using smelting, or with recycled scraped melted down to be recast. But one Seattle startup called  Modumetal  has developed an ingenious technique for creating metals that is not only energy-efficient, but by using a process of nanolamination, creates a material that grows in a manner akin to the way rings are formed on trees. And if that wasn’t enough, it is significantly more durable than conventional metals. The revolutionary technique could, as Katie Fehrenbacher points out at Fortune , do for metals what 3D-printing is doing for plastics.

The Cincinnati Zoo has been home to the only breeding project in the United States for the critically endangered Sumatran rhino, but this year marks the end of an era. 8-year-old Harapan is the last rhino of his kind in the U.S., and so in a effort to help save his species Harapan is being moved to the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary, in the Way Kambas National Park of Indonesia, where it is hoped he will breed with a female resident and help ensure the future of the species.

INTERVIEW: Mark Wigley on Greening Architecture Schools

Comments Off on INTERVIEW: Mark Wigley on Greening Architecture Schools

Buildings account for almost half (48%) of all greenhouse-gas emissions annually. This oft-repeated statistic highlights what many architects and designers have long realized: the building industry has a profound impact on the state of our environment. But is environmental awareness really making enough inroads into the curriculum of design schools, in the places where it could potentially have the most impact on the future of the industry? While environmental design isn’t nearly as entrenched as it should be into the core curriculums of design schools, students seem to be clamoring to learn more about this topic and are demanding new classes and are shaping their own academic paths. To discuss the future of greening architecture schools, we sat down with Mark Wigley, dean of Columbia’s GSAPP , to talk about the changes currently taking place. Read on to hear what Mark Wigley has to say about sustainable design.
