Pinecones Could Help Make Buildings More Energy Efficient

Pinecones Could Help Make Buildings More Energy Efficient | fisheries-management-biomimicry | Scoop.it
Cones produced by such trees as pines, spruce, hemlock, and fir respond naturally to different degrees of humidity by opening and closing, without consuming any electrical energy in doing so. Designing window blinds based on their mechanical properties that could open and close in response to moisture — but use no energy in the process — could conserve a lot of energy.

Heatwave enhanced bluefin tuna larvae growth... | fisheries-management-biomimicry | Scoop.it

The researchers recalled that during the European summer of 2003 there was a heatwave that has been the most intense worldwide since records began. At that time, the temperature of the surface waters in the Balearic Sea was 2.7 °C above the average level.

The heat not only affected bluefin tuna growth but also influenced the marine ecosystem: it had an impact on some bottom communities in the western Mediterranean and in the movement pattern in some areas, among other issues.

bioMason Grows Bricks Without Using Any Heat

bioMason Grows Bricks Without Using Any Heat | fisheries-management-biomimicry | Scoop.it

"[...] bioMason grows bricks and masonry without using any heat.

[...] It starts by packing sand into regular molds, which are then inoculated with bacteria. The bacteria wrap themselves around grains of sand. Each grain acts as a nucleus and calcium carbonate crystals form around it. The bricks are then fed nutrient-rich water via an irrigation system for the next couple of days, speeding up the growth of the crystals which then fill the gaps between grains of sand. After four days, the bricks are strong, durable and ready to be used on the construction yard, and the water is then reused for the next set."
