Comments Off on Titan 1: The Fastest, Tallest Print, High Res SLA 3D Printer on the Market is Now Available

3D printing has the potential to become a staple in green living. It can reduce packaging waste, allows for the reuse of printing materials, and enables designers and architects the ability to test prototypes before building, which can help decrease the amount of waste created by redesigns. So how can 3D printing do all of this? Consumers can print goods in their own homes, eliminating the waste generated by packaging and shipping. It also reduces the amount of fuel used to transport and deliver goods due to the fact that blueprints for desired items are available online, or are created by the consumer. With the Titan 1 , these items can be created more quickly and efficiently than ever before.

Comments Off on Conceptual Artist Christo to Build Giant Pyramid of 410,000 Oil Barrels for Abu Dhabi

Bulgarian environmental artist Christo has draped an inexplicable array of landscapes and objects in a distinctive orange hue since the 1960s – but few of his installations have been as conceptually perplexing as his latest planned installation. The Mastaba is to be a permanent flat-topped pyramid of oil barrels located in the desert about 100 miles from Abu Dhabi . While oil-rich nations vie for the dubious accolade of having the “ world’s tallest building ,” Christo’s sculpture—comprised of 410,000 oil barrels—is set to make Abu Dhabi home to the world’s largest permanent sculpture.

Comments Off on US Announces Agent Orange Clean-Up in Vietnam After 40 Years

Nearly 40 years after the Vietnam War, the U.S. launched a project to clean up toxic residues of Agent Orange  – one of the many herbicides used by the U.S. military during the war was proven to contain dioxin, a chemical linked to cancer, birth defects and other disabilities. The $43 million joint project with Vietnam will take four years and cover a large contaminated area , including a former U.S. air base in Da Nang, where Agent Orange was mixed, stored and loaded onto planes.
