Scientists at Spain’s University of Jaen Create Eco-Friendly Bricks from Paper Waste

Comments Off on Scientists at Spain’s University of Jaen Create Eco-Friendly Bricks from Paper Waste

Scientists at Spain’s University of Jaen have found an affordable and eco-friendly way to make bricks from paper waste . The process diverts the byproducts of paper mills from going to a landfill, and the bricks can be created in less time than other building materials, saving energy and money. Click here to view the embedded video. Waste material from paper mills, along with left over sludge from waste water purification processes, are mixed with clay, pressurized and extruded in one long piece of building material. The sausage-like piece is cut into bricks which are then fired in a kiln. The process requires less time for the material to bake than the conventional bricks. The 3x1x6 cm paper bricks have low thermal conductivity, which gives them great insulating properties. However, bricks made from cellulose have considerably lower mechanical strength compared to traditional ones. Among other issues are adhesion problems and forming difficulties which accompany the manufacturing processes of materials with such high percentages of paper waste. The team continues to work to find balance between sustainability and strength of the material, in addition to investigating the advantages of incorporating other products, such as sewage sludge or waste generated by brewing, olive or producing biodiesel. + University of Jaen Via Treehugger

Melodie Dearden Creates a Perfect Replica of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater Using Gingerbread!

Comments Off on Melodie Dearden Creates a Perfect Replica of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater Using Gingerbread!

We had to share this ambitious gingerbread masterpiece replicating in small scale Frank Lloyd Wright ‘s Fallingwater, created by culinary artist Melodie Dearden. On Dearden’s  Garden Melodies  blog, she shares the painstaking process of building such an intricate model from baked gingerbread sheets and quite a lot of frosting. For those not familiar with Fallingwater , it was built in the late 1930s in Western Pennsylvania, and it is famous for its cantilevered structures that peer, somewhat treacherously, over a waterfall. This home is a complicated plan that appears to float above the water, making it that much more challenging to recreate with only sugar to hold your building together! Read on to see how Melodie pulled it off. Read the rest of Melodie Dearden Creates a Perfect Replica of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater Using Gingerbread!

Comments Off on German Entrepreneur Brings Solar Ovens To the Mexican Countryside To Produce Emissions-Free Tortillas

German entrepreneur Gregor Schaper has installed a series of large circular solar panels in the small town of El Sauz, near Mexico City, and uses solar energy for all his cooking. Each solar cooker costs about solar cooker costs between $4,000 and $5,000 to build, according to AFP , but once it’s up and running it is free to operate, and it produces no greenhouse gas emissions. According to Schapers, each solar reflector can create enough energy that can be used to cook for a group of 60 people.

Comments Off on Aquaovo’s Portable Alter Ego Water Filter is a Stylish Alternative to Buying Bottled Water

This portable water filter from Aquaovo is a fantastic alternative to buying bottled water. The Canada-based team has launched a new campaign to get their new Alter Ego  filter system off the ground, and they’re even tying its profits to socially responsible water access charities. As a follow-up to their previous OVOPUR water filter back in 2009, Aquaovo has combined a stylish design with a sustainable concept in order to create an appealing brand. With a unique slender form and tinted color, the design distinguishes itself from typical bottle brands. But another great feature is that the filtration system is removable and can also be used separately in other bottles.With this brilliant tried and tested model, Aquaovo hope to encourage people to stop buying bottled water, while also aiming to invest in charity: water and ecofiltro:one , charities that work towards bringing clean water to communities around the world. Take a look at Aquaovo’s full campaign page on Indiegogo for more information. + Aquaovo + Indiegogo page

Comments Off on New Parker Mobile App Gives Users Real-Time Parking Info

Circling, block after block, looking for a parking spot is a fact of life for urban drivers everywhere — but it doesn’t have to be. Smart parking startup Streetline has produced the Parker mobile app that will save you the hassle and tell you when parking spaces are available. The app promises to make parking much more efficient, saving drivers the headache of searching for parking, and preventing unnecessary pollution caused by circling. Streetline recently teamed up with communications giant  Cisco  to launch a pilot program in two towns in the San Francisco Bay Area — San Carlos and San Mateo — to test the technology.
