Software Solutions Support Sustainable Design
 
Once delegated to the periphery of product design and development, environmental issues have emerged as a core concern for manufacturers. Instead of designing for sustainability, design should be viewed as synonymous with sustainability. An article and 17 min. video hosted by Engineering.com expound on this emerging view, highlighting the role of product lifecycle management principles in assessing environmental impacts from product cradle to grave. Simulation tools that aid in decision making and design iterations on the basis of energy and water usage, cost, and greenhouse gas emissions reduce lead times and capital costs, as well as protect 'natural capital.'

The Value of Social Plastic
 
Removing plastic debris from the oceans is a good thing, but then what does one do with it? Print something, and "make plastic too valuable to throw away." Canada-based The Plastic Bank is establishing plastic repurposing centers and encouraging people to collect and exchange waste plastic for tools and 3D printing. The social enterprise just made its first product with 3D printing filament derived from recycled ocean plastic.

This House is Just Garbage
 
What does one do with 2,000 used carpet tiles, 2,000 floppy discs, and 20,000 used toothbrushes? Build a house, if you're on the campus of University of Brighton, UK. The structure is composed of 85% waste material, including damaged plywood, 4,000 VHS video cassettes as wall insulation, and bicycle inner tubes as window seals.

A Greener Way to Keep Lawns Green
 
Operating a gasoline-powered lawnmower for one hour produces 11x the emissions of an automobile. Particulate emissions are reduced 93% with a stainless steel filter and catalyst attachment designed by University of California (Riverside) students. Outputs of carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides are also markedly lowered, and Green Car Congress adds that noise and gasoline odors are controlled as well.

Less Sludge, More Clean Water
 
Virtual Curtain technology developed by Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation successfully treated 50 megaliters of mine wastewater in its first commercial application. Effluent chemistry is manipulated to form hydrotalcites, minerals which trap heavy metals and help reduce sludge formation by up to 90%. The approach is simpler and cheaper than traditional lime-based treatment.

A Cure for Pharma Wastes
 
A small-scale pyrolysis system is undergoing final trials at University of York, UK, prior to commercialization for the destruction of clinical and other types of hazardous waste. The system offers an alternative to incineration and is reported to inactivate the most thermally resistant active pharmaceutical ingredients. The unit is capable of disposing 8 kg of hazardous waste per cycle, or 17 tpy.

Mycoremediation Mops Up Persistent Organics
 
Most organic pollutants in soils can be treated by composting, but dioxins and polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) cannot. A bioremediation alternative was demonstrated by a researcher from Aalto University, Finland, to degrade 64% of dioxins and 96% of PAHs in contaminated soils during laboratory trials. The active agents: white rot fungi grown on pine bark.

A Cosmic Aid for Carbon Storage
 
How to gauge the fill status of subsurface sites is an issue for carbon capture and storage projects. A more reliable and less costly option than 4D seismic surveying is being pioneered by University of Sheffield, UK, researchers. Detectors of cosmic ray muons are being tested for this application in the deepest potash and salt mine in the UK.

Test-kit Method for Quick Analysis of Cr(VI) in Soil
 
This ISO Technical Report describes a procedure to screen soil samples to detect hexavalent chromium using test-kits based on water extraction of Cr(VI) in soil. The approach quickly screens soil samples using calibration to indicate the concentration level. Applicable in laboratories as well as for site screening in the field, it covers the range mg/kg to % for Cr(VI).
