Renewable Energy

clean energy

Renewable energy is energy that is collected from renewable resources that are naturally replenished on a human timescale. It includes sources like sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat.

Green Materials

local & renewable

Green materials are materials that are local and renewable. These materials are non-toxic, they improve occupancy health, lower cost, conserve energy, water use, and waste products.

Sustainable Agriculture

farming methods

Sustainable agriculture consists of  farming methods that allow the production of crops or livestock without damage to human or natural systems.It maintains environmental soundness. 

Waste-to-energy or energy-from-waste is the process of generating energy in the form of electricity or heat from the primary treatment of waste. Environmentally friendly. Cubes of pressed metal beer and soda cans.

Waste to Energy

recycling waste

It is the conversion of non-recyclable waste materials into usable heat, electricity, or fuel through a variety of processes, including combustion, gasification, pyrolization, anaerobic digestion and landfill gas recovery. 

Renewable Energy

Renewable energy is energy that is collected from renewable resources that are naturally replenished on a human timescale. It includes sources like sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat.

Renewable sources are often associated with green energy and clean energy, but there are some subtle differences between these three energy types. Where renewable sources are those that are recyclable, clean energy are those that do not release pollutants like carbon dioxide, and green energy is that which comes from natural sources. While there is often cross-over between these energy types, not all types of renewable energy are actually fully clean or green. For example, some hydroelectric sources can actually damage natural habitats and cause deforestation.

Renewable energy is important as it has the potential to provide a ready supply of power without using natural resources. There is also a lower risk of environmental problems like fuel spills and minimal issues with emissions, while also reducing the need for imported fuels. With reliable supplies and fuel diversification, renewable energy could meet our power needs for years to come.

Green materials

Green materials are materials that are local and renewable. Today, they are defined as materials that are non-toxic, improve occupancy health, lower cost, and conserve energy and water use, and waste products. Local materials often are unique to the place and connect whatever people make within an area or region. Materials from the ground such as clay, sand and stone are green materials as they are found underfoot. Plant materials such as grasses, straw, wood and bamboo are also materials that have been used by humans since they started building. Plant materials that grow quickly are for the most part renewable. 

Reclaimed materials are materials that can be reused in their existing form for new purposes; these reclaimed materials are green in the sense that they can be re-purposed and reused. Recyclable materials are materials that can move from being waste material to being reused through reprocessing or re-purposing. Non-toxic materials are materials that do not cause harm to the environment, to the users of the material or to the producers of the material. Green materials are also materials that have low embedded energy in their harvesting or collection, production, transportation and use.

WASTE TO ENERGY

“Waste to energy”(WTE) as the name implies is a process. It is the conversion of non-recyclable waste materials into usable heat, electricity, or fuel through a variety of processes, including combustion, gasification, pyrolization, anaerobic digestion and landfill gas recovery. This process is often called waste to energy.

 The term WTE is commonly used in specific reference to incineration which burns completely combusted waste at ultra-high temperatures allowing for energy recovery. Modern incineration facilities use pollution control equipment to prevent the release of emissions into the environment.  Currently incineration is the only WTE technology that is economically viable and operationally feasible at commercial scale. 

Another example of WTE is anaerobic digestion (AD), an old but effective technology that biologically converts organic material into compost as well as biogas for energy

 

AD systems have large potential and can range from low to high tech, therefore they can service communities of all income levels. Another process, called pyrolysis, can thermo-chemically convert waste products into clean liquid fuels.

SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE

Sustainable agriculture consists of  farming methods that allow the production of crops or livestock without damage to human or natural systems. It maintains environmental soundness.

Sustainable agriculture is a type of agriculture that focuses on producing long-term crops and livestock while having minimal effects on the environment. This type of agriculture tries to find a good balance between the need for food production and the preservation of the ecological system within the environment.

In addition to producing food, there are several overall goals associated with sustainable agriculture, including conserving water, reducing the use of fertilizers and pesticides, and promoting biodiversity in crops grown and the ecosystem. Sustainable agriculture also focuses on maintaining economic stability of farms and helping farmers improve their techniques and quality of life.

There are many farming strategies that are used that help make agriculture more sustainable. Some of the most common techniques include growing plants that can create their own nutrients to reduce the use of fertilizers and rotating crops in fields, which minimizes pesticide use because the crops are changing frequently. Another common technique is mixing crops, which reduces the risk of a disease destroying a whole crop and decreases the need for pesticides and herbicides. Sustainable farmers also utilize water management systems, such as drip irrigation, that waste less water.

Benefits of Sustainable Agriculture

There are many benefits of sustainable agriculture, and overall, they can be divided into human health benefits and environmental benefits. In terms of human health, crops grown through sustainable agriculture are better for people. Due to the lack of chemical pesticides and fertilizers, people are not being exposed to or consuming synthetic materials. This limits the risk of people becoming ill from exposure to these chemicals. In addition, the crops produced through sustainable agriculture can also be more nutritious because the overall crops are healthier and more natural.

 

Sustainable agriculture has also had positive impacts of the environment. One major benefit to the environment is that sustainable agriculture uses 30% less energy per unit of crop yield in comparison to industrialized agriculture. This reduced reliance on fossil fuels results in the release of less chemicals and pollution into the environment. Sustainable agriculture also benefits the environment by maintaining soil quality, reducing soil degradation and erosion, and saving water. In addition to these benefits, sustainable agriculture also increases biodiversity of the area by providing a variety of organisms with healthy and natural environments to live in.
