Chemists with the University of Texas and the University of Marburg have devised a method of using a small electrical field that will remove the salt from seawater. Incredibly this technique requires little more than a store-bought battery. Called electrochemically mediated seawater desalination (EMSD) this technique has improved upon the current water desalination method.

Rethink Athens | Η Αθήνα στο κέντρο

www.rethinkathens.org | www.onassis.gr
Stelios Kessanidis's insight:

Η Αθήνα στο Κέντρο. 33 οριστικές μελέτες από 66 επιστήμονες και όλα τα εκθέματα απλωμένα στα 19 καταστήματα της Στοάς. Η έκθεση φωτίζει το έργο Rethink Athens - Ξανασκέψου την Αθήνα, που έχει σαν στόχο τη βελτίωση της καθημερινότητας στο κέντρο.



Στο επτάλεπτο βίντεο του διεθνούς αρχιτεκτονικού γραφείου OCRA βλέπουμε απεικονίσεις από την Αθήνα του 2016, συγκρίσεις με το παρόν, συγκρίσεις με άλλα παρόμοια έργα σε διεθνείς μητροπόλεις, επεξηγήσεις του σχεδίου (και πλάνα του DOC TV).

Το αναβαθμισμένο κέντρο του 2016 περιλαμβάνει:
- Μετατροπή των οδών Πανεπιστημίου και Πατησίων (μέχρι το Αρχαιολογικό Μουσείο) σε πράσινους δρόμους
- Ποδηλατόδρομο από τη Διονυσίου Αρεοπαγίτου μέχρι την πλ. Ομονοίας
- Ανασχεδιασμό της πλ. Ομονοίας
- Υπόγειους ταμιευτήρες βρόχινου νερού για άρδευση και καθαρισμό
- Γραμμή Τραμ από το Σύνταγμα έως την Πλ. Αιγύπτου κινούμενο με μπαταρίες ώστε να μην έχει ανάγκη υπέργειων γραμμών ηλεκτροδότησης
- 800 νέα δέντρα


Info: Για το πρόγραμμα μπορείτε να ενημερωθείτε μέσω του Rethink Athens και του παράλληλου προγράμματος Reactivate Athens ώστε να μοιραστείτε τις ιδέες σας. Είσοδος ελεύθερη. Διάρκεια έκθεσης: έως Δευτέρα 10 Μαρτίου. Στοά Αρσακείου, Πανεπιστημίου 47-49 & Σταδίου 44-46.
