Chuanbing Tang from the University of South Carolina is looking to the noble conifer to provide the key to biodegradable, renewable plastics. His research group has been altering the natural resins of firs, pines, and other evergreens through polymerization to create compounds that are more sustainable than fossil fuel-derived plastics.

Comments Off on Win a Free $600 Value Energy Audit from Sierra Club Green Home – 25 Available!

The weather’s getting colder – is your home ready for the winter? Soon, the wind will be blowing and the rain will be falling, and we’ll all be seeing a major spike on our monthly energy bills. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could save some money on your monthly energy bill to use on something else? (holiday shopping?) If the answer is yes, you’re in luck because Sierra Club Green Home is giving away 25 free Home Energy Assessments ($600 value) that could help you shore up your home and save you hundreds of dollars on your electricity costs this year. This  valuable giveaway couldn’t have come at a better time because  October is National Energy Awareness Month and what better way to learn how to save energy than by having a professional come to your house for free and show you exactly what to do. This in-depth 7-point energy audit will help you discover leaks, drafts and missing insulation in your home with a blower door test, use of an infrared camera to identify leaks, a smoke gun inspection, an HVAC inspection, air and duct sealing recommendations, as well as windows and insulation tests – a package that would normally cost you $600. And since we’re nearing the end of the year, many of the government incentives (translation: big tax breaks for you) for energy efficiency improvements will be expiring soon so if you’re interested in cashing in on what is essentially free money from Uncle Sam, enter SCGH’s Energy Audit giveaway today !

Bjarko|Serra Architects’ Create a Modern and Green Backyard Cottage

September 20, 2011 by  
Filed under Green, Recycle

Comments Off on Bjarko|Serra Architects’ Create a Modern and Green Backyard Cottage

Bjarko|Serra Architects ’ modern backyard cottage is a 800 s.f. mini-dwelling created in response to a recent zoning code change in Seattle to create more density. Dubbed the DADU (detached accessory dwelling unit), this backyard cottage has been designed as an addition to a single-family home, but is flexible enough to serve as a small, stand-alone home for austere inhabitants. The 5-star Built Green design focuses on creating an innovative approach to small scale building on an occupied site, where off-site production is the primary mode used to decrease site impact. The dwelling also features a low site-impact foundation system of pin piles supporting a raised floor system; the main building shell and roof are composed of pre-fabricated high R-Value SIPS wall panels; rainwater harvesting is used for garden irrigation and storm water management; roof mounted solar systems provide electricity generation and hot water; low- or no-VOC finishes are used throughout; and  recycled and sustainable materials are used when possible. + Bjarko|Serra Architects The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
