A Liter Of Light *Official Version*

A Liter of Light is an inspiring project aiming to bring light to the poverty-stricken regions of the Philippines. Dwellings built too close to one another made natural lighting almost impossible, while electricity is unaffordable. The project aims to light up these houses by creatively reusing plastic bottles, filling them with water and bleach, then fixing them into holes on the roof. Best of all, its all eco-friendly.

Milos Crafts's curator insight, December 12, 2012 5:24 AM

Vast greenhouses that use sea water for crop cultivation could be combined with solar power plants to provide food, fresh water and clean energy in deserts, under an ambitious proposal from a team of architects and engineers.

The Sahara Forest Project, which is already running demonstration plants in Tenerife, Oman and the United Arab Emirates, envisages huge greenhouses with concentrated solar power (CSP), a technology that uses mirrors to focus the sun's rays, creating steam to drive turbines to generate electricity.

The installations would turn deserts into lush patches of vegetation, according to its designers, and do away with the need to dig wells for fresh water, an activity that has depleted aquifers across the world.

 

This is an an incredible feat !!!

Congratulations to Azza Abdel Hamid Faiad, a Young Egyptian Scientist from Alexandria, for finding a new way of turning plastic into biofuel.

Congratulations to Azza Abdel Hamid Faiad, a Young Egyptian Scientist from Alexandria,  for finding a new way of turning plastic into biofuel. | Reciclaje y Upcycling | Scoop.it

Azza Abdel Hamid Faiad was the winner of the 2011 European Union Contest for Young Scientists for finding a new way of turning plastic into biofuel.A sixteen-year-old Egyptian student, Azza Abdel Hamid Faiad from the Zahran Language School in Alexandria has identified a new low-cost catalyst which can generate biofuel by breaking down plastic waste.

The idea of breaking down plastic polymers into fuel feedstocks, the bulk raw material used for producing biofuel , is not a new idea. But Faiad has found a high yield catalyst, aluminosilicate catalyst, that breaks down plastic waste producing gaseous products like methane, propane and ethane, which are then converted into ethanol to use as biofuel.

Faiad and her mentors propose using this discovery to exploit Egypt’s high plastic consumption, which is estimated to amount to one million tons per year, and make money from recycled plastic! She calculates that this technology “can provide an economically efficient method for production of hydrocarbon fuel namely: cracked naphtha of about 40,000 tons per year and hydrocarbon gases of about 138,000 tons per year equivalent to $78 million.”

As we know plastic waste is a huge problem in the Middle East and for our oceans, but hopefully this idea will help convert the problem into a solution.

For her findings, Faiad was presented with the European Fusion Development Agreement award at the 23rd European Union Contest for Young Scientists — involving 130 competitors from 37 countries — held in Finland last year from 23t o 28 September.

Faiad is now looking to get her findings patented this year through the Egyptian Patent Office and scaling up the idea so that it can become a tangible project on the ground.

Congratulations again!!!

Milos Crafts's curator insight, December 14, 2012 6:11 AM

The City of Vancouver has set the lofty goal of becoming the greenest city in the world by 2020 and, judging by their latest green innovation, they are thinking outside of the box to get there. To help up their green quotient, Vancouver has started paving its streets with recycled plastic.  The city teamed up with GreenMantraof Toronto to melt together old plastic and asphalt to create a paving mixture that is much better for the environment than traditional asphalt.

Garbage Homes - Bolivia

Garbage Homes - Bolivia | Reciclaje y Upcycling | Scoop.it

Ingrid Vaca Diez is on a mission to build better homes for the poor.

With few funds and little support, she uses the only resource she can find in abundance - empty plastic bottles.

Her own life in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, is one of relative comfort but she is shocked by the rising level of poverty she sees around her.

Though completely self-taught, she designs and builds new homes using recycled plastic bottles filled with dirt as the "bricks". So far, she has built 10 of these homes.
