Substituting floating plastic for floating houses

Substituting floating plastic for floating houses
Architect student Ludvig Hofsten wanted to address the issues of rising sea levels and plastic waste in the ocean. He designed Villa Nemo, a project that sees the potential of living on water in the future; with both lifestyle and environmental benefits. ”Our cities are becoming fairly dense, and there’s less space to build new houses. Quite a lot of cities are starting to look at the possibility of building on water”, says Ludvig Hofsten.

Self-powered system makes smarter windows

Self-powered system makes smarter windows
  By applying a solar cell technology, researchers at Princeton University have developed a different type of smart window: a self-powered version that could be inexpensive and easy to apply to windows. This system features solar cells that selectively absorb near-ultraviolet (near-UV) light, so the new windows are completely self-powered.

Biomass power station aims for zero carbon footprint

Biomass power station aims for zero carbon footprint
Italy's largest agricultural biomass power plant has opened, integrating four 1MW generators using Movicon SCADA technology for control and visualisation for efficiency monitoring. The SCADA system is providing the information required to provide power for 10,000 homes while offsetting the carbon generated by the plant with the carbon consumed by the in-feed crops as they grow, resulting in a target zero carbon footprint.
