Deconstructing Construction Waste & Saving Big with Modular [infographic]

Deconstructing Construction Waste & Saving Big with Modular [infographic] | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Construction accounts for 24 percent of all solid waste produced in the U.S. That’s approximately 160 million tons of construction and demolition debris created every year.


Reducing construction waste can have a tremendous impact on landfill costs, not to mention the obvious benefit to our environment. One solution for greener building is modular construction. Modular is inherently more resource efficient, and can dramatically reduce C&D waste.

This infographic shares some staggering construction waste figures and the waste and money savings that can result from modular building...

Empire State Building goes green in more ways than one | scatol8® | Scoop.it
The Empire State Building is going green in more ways than one.


The Empire State Building was never intended to be low-impact. It was built as a symbol of the power of New York--and today, it's a surprising case study in the power of efficiency. A series of cost-effective, energy-efficient retrofits have dramatically reduced energy waste in the Empire State Building, saving $2.4 million in operating costs in the first year alone. In the next few years, when the project is complete, the building is expected to reduce its energy use by nearly 40 percent--and save about $4.4 million each year...

Waste-to-Energy: Green Power Generation

Waste-to-Energy: Green Power Generation | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Waste-to-energy (WTE) is the process of creating energy in the form of electricity or heat from the incineration of a waste source. But how does the process generate green power?

A form of energy recovery, such processes produce electricity directly through combustion or produce a combustible fuel commodity.
