Bid to lift recycling, efficiency | - 0 views

  • Victoria’s leading sustainability bodies should focus more on recycling and energy efficiency instead of renewable energy, a major review recommends.
  • The review says some programs had cost more than $1000 for every tonne of carbon reduced.

ScienceDaily: Recycling Wind Turbines - 0 views

  • Wind turbines are one of the most environmentally sound technologies for producing electricity, explain the researchers. However, the removal and recycling phase of wind turbines has been identified as a blind spot in assessing their overall environmental impact. Most studies have ignored this phase and focused entirely on their operation and in some cases the production and installation of wind turbines.
    Danish researchers now suggest that in order to assess the overall environmental impact of wind power, however, the finite lifespan of wind turbines and the need to replace and recycle them must be taken into account.

Global sustainability and key needs in future automotive design - 0 views

    Environ Sci Technol. 2003 Dec 1;37(23):5414-6. Global sustainability and key needs in future automotive design. McAuley JW. Basell USA Inc., 912 Appleton Road, Elkton, Maryland 21921, USA. Abstract The number of light vehicle registrations is forecast to increase worldwide by a factor of 3-5 over the next 50 years. This will dramatically increase environmental impacts worldwide of automobiles and light trucks. If light vehicles are to be environmentally sustainable globally, the automotive industry must implement fundamental changes in future automotive design. Important factors in assessing automobile design needs include fuel economy and reduced emissions. Many design parameters can impact vehicle air emissions and energy consumption including alternative fuel or engine technologies, rolling resistance, aerodynamics, drive train design, friction, and vehicle weight. Of these, vehicle weight is key and will translate into reduced energy demand across all energy distribution elements. A new class of vehicles is needed that combines ultra-light design with a likely hybrid or fuel cell engine technology. This could increase efficiency by a factor of 3-5 and reduce air emissions as well. Advanced lightweight materials, such as plastics or composites, will need to overtake the present metal-based infrastructure. Incorporating design features to facilitate end-of-life recycling and recovery is also important. The trend will be towards fewer materials and parts in vehicle design, combined with ease of disassembly. Mono-material construction can create vehicle design with improved recyclability as well as reduced numbers of parts and weight.

'Recyclable' Is So Last-Century :: PNN Planet2025 News Network - 0 views

  • Suddenly, “recyclable” seems so old-school. When the FTC held its first workshop reviewing its Green Guides in January, carbon offsets and renewable energy credits were the topic of the day, and the only consensus was that the carbon market is chaotic and difficult to define.

8 Ways to Green Your Battery Use: ENN - 0 views

    You may not realize how often you use batteries until you have to operate for a few hours without electricity. Batteries are great at keeping a charge in our mobile devices, but the components that help generate these charges wreak havoc in landfills. You can use Earth911 to find out where to recycle batteries for a number of devices, including your car and cell phone. Here's eight ways to optimize your battery use so you'll create less waste in the first place.
