International professor’s guest lecture talks sustainability abroad – The Daily Free Press

Sustainability and international activism are more relevant than ever in the 21st century, yet the impact of voluntourism — international volunteering — is less discussed. Global Engineering Brigades at Boston University, a student organization that works to install water systems in the majority world, hosted a Zoom event Nov. 15 to address this topic. The guest lecture featured Kimberly Samaha, CEO of technology commercialization program Born Global and an adjunct professor at American University of Beirut. Born Global, based out of Maine, works to innovate in the sectors of food, energy and waste. Samaha said when finding sustainable solutions, companies should think more critically about what the term “sustainable” actually means and whether that mindset is useful to their business. “If our goal is just to sustain the mess that we’re in, then let’s just give up right now,’” Samaha said at the event. “The idea now is that we really have to completely change the way we go about doing this stuff.” In light of the pandemic, Samaha said adapting to a new lifestyle has proven people’s ability to innovate, which she said could be applied to sustainability actions as well. “A big lesson that [COVID-19] has taught us is that we as humans can radically change our behavior real quick,” Samaha said. “I’m an optimist, but I think that Mother Nature is forcing our hand to the fire on this.” Taking real actions to rejuvenate the environment is also the main mission of BU’s Global Engineering Brigades, said co-President Macie Monborne, a senior in the College of Engineering. Monborne said the service chapter, part of the larger Global Brigades organization, has focused on neighborhoods in Honduras, where it typically travels each year to implement clean water infrastructure. To take those trips, however, the group fundraises the expenses itself…

Navigating waste on the journey to circular economy | Infosys InfyTV

What was considered as a good to have, is increasingly becoming a must have. And this rings true for organizations across the globe, especially as the conversation around topics such as sustainability, circular economy, and ESG metrices are gaining steam. Governments, environmental agencies, industry associations, among many others, are all moving to tackle this new reality of depleting resources, coupled with climate crisis, that we are faced with today. Everybody is thinking about it. Everybody is talking about it. Many are even doing something about it. What is missing, however, is bringing them all at the same table, says Dr. Trevor Thornton, a senior lecturer at Australia’s Deakin University. In an insightful conversation with Kamal Raj, who leads Solid Waste Management as part of the Green Initiatives team at Infosys, discussed with Thornton a range of topics from waste management, to circular economy. “It was Carl Sagan that said that waste is stuff that we are too stupid to use,” says Thornton, who believes that people across sections of the ecosystem, such as governments, businesses, industry associations and conservationists should work together to figure out how to actually manage waste better. “It was Carl Sagan that said that waste is stuff that we’re too stupid to use.” Thornton, who teaches at the Faculty of Science Engineering & Built Environment, School of Life & Environment Sciences, believes that at an organizational front some companies are looking at the aspect of circularity, and are realizing that this is the way of the future. “Some companies are saying that, yes, there is that environmental and social aspect of doing things. But they’re also realistic to know that there’s the economic benefits associated with it,” he says, adding that they are starting to use the principles of circular economy, and some are even entering…

Showcase ‘P-lab’: urban raw materials in a small-scale circular economy

Two to three carrots Manufacturer Laufen supplied two special toilets that separate the urine from the flushing water and the faeces. Conthe coupled these together with a waterless urinal to a bioreactor and a vacuum evaporator to recover various valuable nutrients plus high-quality water using a process of nitrification and distillation. Besides phosphorus, the plant also recovers nitrogen and small amounts of potassium and boron. Harmful substances such as drug residues and hormones are in principle removed during the process. “The plant can handle 30 litres of urine a day”, she explains, “that’s enough to deliver around 10g of phosphorus. Next to the container we have a small greenhouse where we use the recovered nutrients to feed various crops. This enables us to also study what effects different proportions of fertilisers have on different food crops.” In this way the urine of city dwellers can be used right away and on location to grow fruit and vegetables that the same city dwellers eat and then re-excrete…. and with the least possible burden on the environment. The result: a safe, small-scale recycling system that helps make cities circular. According to Conthe’s calculations, one pee provides enough nutrients to grow two to three carrots. “Scaling up this demonstrated process will enable us to go some way to meeting urban food needs. For example using forms of urban farming.”

Looking for a sustainable packaging solution? Choose metal packaging! | Metal Packaging Europe

Looking for a sustainable packaging solution? Choose metal packaging! Consumers, businesses and governments across Europe are all increasingly aware of the need to reduce waste and adopt sustainable practices. Initiatives such as the European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR), which takes place every November, help reinforce this by encouraging Europeans to carry out awareness-raising actions aimed at improving waste management. The metal packaging industry is proud to play a key role in reducing waste: infinitely recyclable with no loss of quality, it is hard to find a more sustainable packaging option than metal! With this year’s European Week for Waste Reduction set to take place from 21-29 November 2020, there’s no better time than now to explore why metal should be the first choice when it comes to sustainable packaging. Metal Recycles Forever Metal is a recycling champion. Around 80% of metal ever produced is still in use and, with a recycling rate of 82.5% for steel cans and 74.5% for beverage cans, metal packaging boasts among the highest packaging recycling rates in the European Union. As a permanent material that can be fully recycled over and over again with no loss of quality, metal forms part of a never-ending material loop, helping to create a truly resource-efficient society. Easy to recycle Metal packaging is designed for recycling: not only is metal a fully recyclable permanent material, it is also easy to recycle! Composed of one packaging material only, it is quick and easy to sort and separate from other waste and to then recycle into new packaging and products. Scrap metal is easily recovered from metal recycling plants, remelted and reshaped into new products, over and over again. Minimal invisible waste Many production processes result in a significant amount of invisible waste; waste produced during the manufacturing process. The…

SSF Guidelines | Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries | Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

Get to know the SSF Guidelines The principles in the Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (SSF Guidelines) address policies, strategies and legal frameworks concerning small-scale fisheries, but also other matters affecting lives and livelihood in fishing communities. They have a clear human rights-based approach, and they put people, rather than fish, in focus. The SSF Guidelines are global in scope, and they guide dialogue, policy processes and actions at national, regional and international level. Key issues in the SSF Guidelines include managing resources and allocating tenure rights responsibly; supporting social development and decent work; looking at fish workers along the entire value chain from catching through processing to trading fish; promoting gender equality; and taking into account climate change and disaster risk. Explore the content of the SSF Guidelines by clicking on the themes.

Female-Founded: &SISTERS, Ethical, Sustainable & Smashing Stigma

When investing, your capital is at risk. — The femtech market is set to reach $60 billion USD by 2027. Why? Because it provides crucial innovations to improve the health and happiness of 50% of the global population – the women that menstruate, and those that don’t want to. Those that go through pregnancy and those who want to prevent it. Those who are tackling menopause, or teenage hormonal fluctuations, or new motherhood and want to understand and respond to the totally natural changes their bodies are undergoing. The list goes on. While femtech used to refer to the uterus and little more, its definition has expanded to infant nutrition, egg freezing, childcare support, menstrual tracking, data-driven health products and more. Unsurprisingly, the majority of the business leading the space are founded by women – women who noticed gaps in the market and recognised the expansive healthcare and lifestyle needs of billions of women worldwide that have traditionally been left behind by advancements in medicine and technology. And yet, only 10% of global investment goes into female-founded businesses – despite the fact that female-led businesses are more likely to exit than their male-founded counterparts. This is something that all of us in the investment space are looking to change – and it starts by recognising the ambitious, game-changing startups dedicated to improving the lives of women, at every phase of their lives, around the world. &SISTERS is one of these. Founded by daughter mother duo, Lucy and Claire, &SISTERS is developing the menstrual health ecosystem of the future. They recognised that a person menstruating uses 11,000 period products in their lifetime on average – and most are completely unaware that the products they reach for in the period care aisle are laden with chemicals and plastic. So, they set out…

Kerry Washington Invests in Female-Owned Sustainable Jewelry Brand Aurate – J Haleem TV

Actress Kerry Washington has made an investment of undisclosed size in direct-to-consumer jewelry startup Aurate. This isn’t the first time Washington has gotten involved in startups — she’s also backed The Wing, Community and Byte. In fact, when we asked her about her dream investment at Disrupt in September, she hinted at a new deal that “feels pretty dreamy.” When I brought up those comments earlier this week, Washington laughed and confirmed that Aurate is exactly what she’d been thinking about. In addition to providing funding, Washington also collaborated with the company to create The Lioness Collection, which features two of Aurate’s bestselling gold chains bonded together as both a necklace and a bracelet, along with hoop earrings and a pendant inspired by the Egyptian goddess Sekhmet. Washington was excited about Aurate’s goals of sustainability (its gold comes from sustainable sources) and making fine jewelry more affordable. Plus, she said, “I love working with female founders,” to the extent that she and Aurate founders Sophie Kahn and Bouchra Ezzahraoui have become “our own lioness tribe.” “I was inspired by the themes of what the lioness means, how lionesses operate, how the lionesses hunt together and nurture their cubs together,” she added. “There’s no hierarchy among lionesses … They are fierce and ambitious but they also take care of each other.” And while the average price point of Aurate jewelry is $300, pricing for items in the Lioness Collection starts at around $150, with 20% of the proceeds going to women’s activist group Supermajority. Kahn recalled “countless Zoom conversations” with Washington to develop the collection, while Ezzahraoui said that the team has been talking to her for the past three years — it took a while to make sure everyone was “aligned philosophically” and to figure out the right partnership. “Aurate…

Lowering emissions in the Northeast: Key Strategy for a New, Sustainable Grid

Figure 2. Marginal Emissions by Month of Year, and Hour of Day. Columns 1 to 12 on the y-axis equate to Midnight through Noon; columns 3-24 are the PM hours. Source: NYSERDA, NY DPS 2016. New England: Reducing Emissions In New England, off-peak marginal emissions were shown to be significantly lower –0.7 percent less than during on-peak hours.[vii] On-peak emissions are at their highest when the temperature is highest. “In New England, high electric demand days (HEDDs) are typically characterized by high temperatures leading to elevated cooling (energy) demand. During peak energy demand periods, such as HEDDs, the ISO relies on peaking units, which are less utilized during the rest of the year but respond quickly to meet system demand. These peaking units are often jet (aero-derivative) or combustion turbines with higher emission rates.[viii] – ISO-NE. April 2019. Research showed that marginal emissions for hot, “high electric demand days” in 2017, were a full 34 percent higher than during off-peak hours.[ix] So by relying on energy stored at night to cool the building during the day, thermal energy storage can have a big effect on greenhouse-gas emissions in New England. This impact is only expected to grow as more wind power comes online across the region.[x] From Ice to Heat: Thermal Energy Storage in the Age of Electrification In recent years, regulators and policy-makers across the Northeast have embraced the electrification of heating as a means of reducing the region’s greenhouse gas emissions: by shifting heat from natural gas-powered boilers to electric heat pumps, consumers and businesses can reduce their carbon footprint by relying on an ever-cleaner grid rather than a fossil fuel. Thermal energy storage will soon be playing a role in this transformation. Trane has developed a thermal energy storage solution for both heating and cooling, the Thermal…

Participatory analysis of sustainable land and water management practices for integrated rural development in Myanmar | Journal of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene for Development | IWA Publishing

Besides providing reliable water resources for agricultural production, rural development efforts in Myanmar should target rural water security in terms of safe water supply and sanitation, and by mitigating water-related hazards. However, very few studies are available over the status of water-related development in rural areas of the country, and consequently on suitable practical solutions. The present paper describes a participatory workshop undertaken involving 45 rural development officers of the Department of Rural Development (DRD) of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation (MOALI), aimed at identifying suitable sustainable land and water management (SLWM) practices to be developed in rural areas of the country. Adoption of water safety plans (WSP), water harvesting, and soil and water bioengineering were strongly supported, while the need of improving water sanitation, especially in the poorest areas, was made evident. Insights of the participatory process confirmed that the poorest regions of Myanmar have also the worst water management structures. The results of the present work can represent a baseline information and a needs assessment for future development projects in the country. However, there is a strong need of more studies and reports targeting marginalized rural contexts of Myanmar, to support an equitable development.

19 November is World Toilet Day…Everyone must have sustainable sanitation that can fight climate change! | Land & Water | Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations | Land & Water | Fo…

Safe reuse of human waste helps save water, reduces and captures greenhouse gas emissions for energy production and provides agriculture with a reliable source of water and nutrients. Climate change is accelerating. Flood, drought and rising sea levels are threatening sanitation systems, from toilets to septic tanks to treatment plants. Floodwater can contaminate wells used for drinking water. Flooding can also damage toilets and spread human waste into communities and food crops, causing deadly and chronic diseases, and posing risks to crop and food safety. Today, 4.2 billion people live without access to safely managed sanitation. Instead they often use unreliable, inadequate toilets or practice open defecation. Open defecation and unimproved sanitation are one of the main factors leading to malnutrition, being major contributors to water and soil pollution. In rural areas, polluted waters are used for crop irrigation and other agricultural activities such as livestock watering, bringing pathogens and other contaminants into contact with crops and animals. Globally, 80% of the wastewater generated by society flows back into the ecosystem without being treated or reused, as well as untreated human waste gets out into the environment and spreads deadly and chronic diseases. When water is exposed to untreated human excreta, it becomes a breeding ground for parasites and, soil and water-borne diseases such as cholera, dysentery, E. coli, salmonella and soil-transmitted intestinal worms (helminthiases). Everyone must have sustainable sanitation that can fight climate change and keep communities healthy and functioning. Sustainable sanitation systems also make productive use of wastewater and bio solids that contain valuable water, nutrients and energy, to safely boost agriculture while reducing and capturing greenhouse gas emissions. FAO is supporting member countries to adopt the circular economy approach applied to agriculture, making it environmentally friendly, sustainable and more resilient to shocks such as COVID-19. It is…
