Sustainable Game Show and Biodegradable Plastics

  1. 1. What is sustainability…? … Humans living in harmony with the planet by optimizing well being without negative impacts. … long lasting and cyclical.
  2. 2. Sustainability Game show with Bob Barker and Jenna Thompson What is the following image and how does it relate to sustainability? Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill 2010 Damages ecosystems, economic systems, highlights our dependence on fossil fuels… The Environment is Right!
  3. 3. Sustainability Game show with Bob Barker and Jenna Thompson What is potable water? Where does Memphis get its drinking water? Potable water requires lots of energy through the process of treating and disbursing, therefore nonpotable water should be used for non drinking activities. Landscaping, toilet flushing, janitorial, process water from building systems. Water that is considered “fit to drink” by federal, state, and local municipalities. Memphis Sands Aquifer The Environment is Right!
  4. 4. Sustainability Game show with Bob Barker and Jenna Thompson What is the most sustainable form of naturally generated energy? About 40% of the freshwater used in the United States – 136 billion gallons per day – is used for power generation. <ul><li>Human energy </li></ul><ul><li>Walking, running, swimming, exercising </li></ul><ul><li>Compostable waste – Rural studio </li></ul><ul><li>Alternative forms of energy production </li></ul><ul><li>Wind </li></ul><ul><li>Solar </li></ul><ul><li>Biomass – plant material that is living or recently living </li></ul><ul><li>Waste in materials used to harness energy </li></ul>The Environment is Right!
  5. 6. Sustainability Game show with Bob Barker and Jenna Thompson Name the six main recyclable materials? <ul><li>Paper, Plastic, Glass, Metal, Aluminum, Cardboard </li></ul><ul><li>60-70% of all items deposited in landfills could have been recycled. </li></ul><ul><li>In the United States alone, 60 billion pounds of plastic becomes unusable or non-recycled waste. </li></ul><ul><li>Plastics most commonly accepted are 1’s and 2’s. </li></ul>Ocean debris kills at least 1 million sea birds and a 100,000 mammals each year estimated by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association. Great Garbage Patch – North Pacific Ocean 3.5 million tons and growing Only 5% of plastic is recycled globally The Environment is Right!
  6. 7. nature’s plastic in the world of architecture and interior architecture How can architecture begin to use biodegradable plastics as a renewable material to replace toxic plastics in interior and exterior design applications?
  7. 8. WHY REPLACE TRADITIONAL PLASTICS? <ul><li>CONSERVATION </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Plastics are primarily produced from petroleum which is a non-renewable feedstock </li></ul></ul><ul><li>WASTE </li></ul><ul><ul><li>In the United States alone, 60 billion pounds of plastic becomes unusable or non-recycled waste </li></ul></ul><ul><li>OFF-GASSING </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Phthalates: used as softeners or plasticizers in products such as children’s toys, interior decorative products, and building products </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Dioxins: pollutant released during and after production of plastics </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>ENERGY CONSUMPTION </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Plastic production depends on fossil fuels creating economic price increase trends </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Plastic incineration creates ecological and efficiency problems </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Biodegradable plastics are a renewable feedstock </li></ul><ul><li>Sustainability: Reduce · Reuse · Recycle </li></ul><ul><li>Biodegradable plastics can be broken down by naturally occurring microorganisms </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Biodegradable plastics are non-toxic!!! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Less obtrusive extraction methods </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Less heat to produce </li></ul></ul>
  8. 9. Reemergence of Bio-plastics Nature’s Plastic Soybean Car_Henry Ford 1941 Native American Horn Spoon Parkesine (cellulose) Plastic 1860
