World’s First Vertical Forest Gets Introduced in Italy

World’s First Vertical Forest Gets Introduced in Italy | Energy News | Scoop.it

The Bosco Verticale is a system that optimizes, recuperates, and produces energy. Covered in plant life, the building aids in balancing the microclimate and in filtering the dust particles contained in the urban environment. Milan is one of the most polluted cities in Europe. The diversity of the plants and their characteristics produce humidity, absorb CO2 and dust particles, producing oxygen and protect the building from radiation and acoustic pollution. This not only improves the quality of living spaces, but gives way to dramatic energy savings year round.

Each apartment in the building will have a balcony planted with trees that are able to respond to the city’s weather — shade will be provided within the summer, while also filtering city pollution; and in the winter the bare trees will allow sunlight to permeate through the spaces. Plant irrigation will be supported through the filtering and reuse of the greywater produced by the building. Additionally, Aeolian and photovoltaic energy systems will further promote the tower’s self-sufficiency.

The design of the Bosco Verticale is a response to both urban sprawl and the disappearance of nature from our lives and on the landscape. The architect notes that if the units were to be constructed unstacked as stand-alone units across a single surface, the project would require 50,000 square meters of land, and 10,000 square meters of woodland. Bosco Verticale is the first offer in his proposed BioMilano, which envisions a green belt created around the city to incorporate 60 abandoned farms on the outskirts of the city to be revitalized for community use.

Edoardo Pandolfini Barberi's curator insight, November 1, 2013 3:21 PM

The new from Volvo sounds like science fiction but it actually serves three main functions:

Store electrical energy

Save weight (reduces fuel consumption)

Increase structural rigidity of the vehicle

If this idea will be cost effective developed is destined to succeed!

Urine Powered Generator Produces Electricity For 6 Hours on 1 Liter of Pee: Power Your Home With Waste | OffGridWorld.com

Urine Powered Generator Produces Electricity For 6 Hours on 1 Liter of Pee: Power Your Home With Waste | OffGridWorld.com | Energy News | Scoop.it

Imagine powering your home with waste bi-products. You could essentially power you home with pee. Adult human being produces 1-2 liters of urine per day. 1 liter is enough to power a small generator for 6 hours. How do we know this? A 14 year old girl and her friends from Nigeria, Africa created a system that separates the hydrogen and oxygen in urine, purifies the hydrogen and uses it to power a generator.

 

The amount of electricity produced is not shown, but judging from the size of the generator it’s probably at least a few hundred Watts. That’s more than enough to power small electronics and LED lighting in your home.

Increasingly recycling develops and with it the quantity of substances and products that are reusable. But this time, something most unusual happened to be reused after an experiment conducted in Africa: the urine. 
In 2014 in my last school we did a research about it and it is simply something amazing!!!
 During the 2012 mainland technology fair, which took place in November, known as Maker Faire Africa held in Lagos, Nigeria, the teenagers Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, Bello Eniola presented a fantastic innovation: a generator of electricity powered urine. 
I feel that it helped me to undestand more about Africa and African people because how can one day someone would think about using urine to generate energy??? especially teenagers with about 14. They used the "need" of something (a lot of places in Africa don't have access to energy) to create something simply amazing!!!
