Sustainability Materials

Concrete has been used since the Romans, today it contributes 16% of global CO2 emissions from its production (liquid stone), recycling concrete and adding aggregates including Ash and polymers reduces use of rare materials and CO2 emissions, and produce lighter materials for taller buildings.

Concrete absorbs heat in the summer releasing it during the Night, artificially raising the temperatures of towns and cities, and in Winter absorbing low temperatures and cooling homes and offices requiring additional heating.

Resources: Planning Water

Dec 2019 met Trinidad scientist from the Adopt a River Program, who asked for ideas to assist the water authority through the seven years of lower than expected annual rainfall and daily temperatures of 35°C, leading to national water rationing, highly subsidized water $68sq meter to provide while charged at $304 per quilter last increased in 2019 from $108 set in 1993, the main course of problems is the align infrastructure which often undermines roads.
After seeing the scale of home gardening/farming and irrigation on social media, ideas included methods to economise use, collection of rain water, storage and irrigation methods i.e. reusing water to flush toilets, flow regulators on taps and education projects in schools.

National Power: Energy vampires

Our disposable, consumerist driven society continues to produce household and handheld devices that on standby drain electricity i.e. Games consoles, televisions, Microwaves etc. the technical term is Energy vampires and they increase energy bills and CO2 emissions.

Power stations need to meet peak demand to avoid outages, i.e. electric Kettles simultaneously switched on across the nation during popular television show advertisement breaks (boil only the required amount to save gas or elec), turning on lights and Air conditioning at dusk across hot countries, reducing unnecessary electricity use reduces demand on suppliers and the production of CO2 from the burning of fossil fuels.

Global population: Migration to Cities

Migration from the countryside to the cities, today more people live in the cities of Sub Saharan Africa than the whole of Europe and North America combined, a younger population with up to 80% access to the internet and online education, high percentage for developed countries, small habit changes on a large scale can make a significant difference.

Sustainability: Renewable energy

Had Solar panels generating the majority of electricity used, with feed in tariff paid to exported electricity to the national Grid (in Gray old England), using electricity smart meter managing kW kilowatt-hours used, using power hungry electrical appliances only on Sunny days.

Co-efficacy has improved generating for electricity in higher temperatures than previously and the price has dropped significantly in the past decade.

Survey: Humidity and condensation

Modern building materials seal in layers apposed to traditional buildings which breathed, combined with central heating / Air conditioning systems which can dry the air in living areas, create sore throats leading throat and chest infections and through mold spores in the air in other areas of the home.

Simply solution is opening windows east and west each morning, improving humidity and ventilation issues a principle of Bauhaus 1919 - 1933 concrete Modern architecture, small cup of water next to central heating can reduce sore throats from central heating.

The National Trust is the only government department which generates income from tours and boat trips etc, and accounts where used to fund Covid 19 financial support at the beginning of the pandemic.

Smart Cities: Smart devices

Witnessed the moments after a black teenager was stabbed in the wrist in East London, and the growing trend for basic mobile phones, saving on the high cost of regularly obsolete/damaged and the trauma from street crime especially on children who are at key stage in develop, hatred and discrimination from losing Birthday or Christmas presents.

Telecommunications

This is already impacting manufactures the last three months of 2022 Samsung expect their profits to fall by 69% to lowest levels in eight years. I worked with prototype render artist for Nokia in 2003 and watched mobile phones continuously rise in value, while there is growing need for food banks / stamps to feed families.

OEM devices without bloatware, which are not rooted and are kept up to date with recent OS security patches are more secure for personal data security.
