IMDEA Water Institute posted this:Water Footprint assessment to minimize the impacts to the Water Footprint valueWater footprint is a novel indicator of freshwater use, which quantifies the volume of water required by a product, service or activity when and where it is consumed. It includes both direct and indirect freshwater consumption. It also provides information on sustainability, by comparing the Water Footprint value with the availability and quality of water resource in situ. The final aim is to manage an improvement strategy designed to minimize the impacts related to this Water Footprint value. The three colours of water: • Green water. Rainwater, stored in soil as humidity, removed by plants in evapotranspiration processes. It is the main component in agrifood industries. • Blue water. Water volume that depends on a more or less complex infrastructure for its use. Its origin may be surface or subterranean. The traditional indicators for water use have focused on this component. • Grey water. Water volume that is required to buffer the concentration of pollutants that are spread in the environment. It depends on the quantity and quality of the spill, the essential quality of the receiving environment and the standards that are used to assess the environmental quality. Water footprint can be assessed in multiple scopes or levels (process, product, consumer, producer, business) by considering both direct and indirect impacts over the whole life cycle. Nowadays it is possible to achieve Water Footprint certification by implementing one of these two international standards: • WATER FOOTPRINT NETWORK – Water footprint assessment manual • ISO 14046 – Water footprint – Principles, requirements and guidelines
Laser Consult Ltd. posted this:“Air filter integrated in a bicycle’s wheel” – giving bicycles the power to provide cleaner urban airThis product offers a simple, end user inclusive, and inexpensive way of filtering the air from particulate matter particles (PM 10, PM 2.5 and similar). This product is integrated in a bicycle wheel. The basic concept of the product is using the rotation of the wheel, combined with the axial motion of the bicycle to push air through the filter material, thus filtering the air. The device itself is actually quite simple, and it has a goal of helping towards the solving the problem of air pollution in urban areas. Everyone who has a bicycle is a potential user of the product, but the users that would benefit the most are people living in urban areas that face the problem of air pollution. The best possible way to implement this device is to integrate the filters on bicycles sharing or renting systems that have a significant number of users, for example such systems are common in East Asia. Another way to implement the product is offering it to people as a product that can be added to their bicycle while buying a new one, or fixing their old bicycle. With all of the statements above, the ideal partnership would be with a company, but it is not exclusive to other companies, that works in the mentioned fields. The partnership could be via licensing the product, or selling the rights together with the complete documentation.
