  10. 10. Business Case Proctor & Gamble plans to generate >$50 billion sales from products with reduced environmental impact over the next three years. This was recently revised up from the 2007 target of $20 billion reflecting a strengthened pipeline of initiatives. GE ’s ‘ecomagination’ portfolio has grown from 17 to more than 80 products in 2009. 2008 revenues reached $17 billion, an increase of 21% over the prior year. AkzoNobel state: “ Social and environmental trends are re-shaping the competitive arena, and thus our customers’ futures .” 18% of sales come from sustainable products with the aim to have 30% by 2015
  11. 11. <ul><li>For every tonne of household waste that we throw away, there's a further 5 tonnes of materials that have been used in the manufacturing of the products consumed </li></ul>Don't throw anything away. There is no 'away' - Shell advert 90% of all products are waste within 6 months of purchase
  12. 12. Water Source: World Council, UNESCO, DEFRA by 2020 we will need 17% more water than is currently available ‘ water is the oil of the 21st century’ Dow CEO Andrew Liveris ‘ embedded’ water content (litres) 1 pair of shoes 1 cotton T-shirt 1 hamburger 1 glass of milk 1 cup of coffee 1 microchip (2g) 8000 4100 2400 200 140 32 about how much a dishwasher uses in a year
  13. 13. Endangered Elements
  14. 14. Sustainable Design Approaches <ul><li>Design for life‑cycle </li></ul><ul><li>Designing for the total life-cycle of a product should be standard. </li></ul><ul><li>Design in biodegradability and low aquatic toxicity. </li></ul><ul><li>Design for separation and recovery of materials – plastics, precious metals, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Design for recycle and re‑use </li></ul><ul><li>Extend experience of recycling and reusing catalysts, lubricants and solvents. </li></ul><ul><li>Efficient process design </li></ul><ul><li>Integrating product and process design – holistic approaches. </li></ul><ul><li>Reducing material intensity </li></ul><ul><li>Reducing the amount of material required to produce a specific outcome. </li></ul><ul><li>e.g. micro- and nano-particles formulation; ‘atom-efficiency’ and E-factor concepts; etc. </li></ul>

  18. 18. Ship Hull Anti-foul Coating <ul><li>Problem </li></ul><ul><li>Ship’s lose sailing performance and are damaged due to barnacles settling onto a vessel's underwater hull. The usual approach is to coat the hull in a biocidal paint. </li></ul><ul><li>Technical solution </li></ul><ul><li>Intersleek ® produces a slippery, hydrophobic, low friction </li></ul><ul><li>surface onto which fouling organisms have difficulty settling. </li></ul><ul><li>Benefits </li></ul><ul><li>no leaching of biocides into the sea </li></ul><ul><li>reduced fuel consumption </li></ul><ul><li>reduced carbon dioxide emissions </li></ul><ul><li>reduced wash water treatment costs at drydock </li></ul><ul><li>longer intervals between drydock servicing </li></ul><ul><li>reduces fuel costs by at least 6% </li></ul><ul><li>$2.5 million savings over a five year period for a typical ship </li></ul>source: Sustainable Technologies Roadmap
  19. 19. Energy Efficient ‘Spray-On’ Heating Elements <ul><li>Problem </li></ul><ul><li>Resistance coiled heating elements are widely used. Their manufacture uses a high impact 27 step process and they are energy inefficient . </li></ul><ul><li>Technical Solution </li></ul><ul><li>A new flat heating element is made by spraying metal alloy oxides onto an insulating base to form a 50 – 250 micron coating. </li></ul><ul><li>Benefits </li></ul><ul><li>lightweight but robust element that can be applied to shaped surfaces reduced </li></ul><ul><li>up to 40-50% energy savings </li></ul><ul><li>safety in use, with lower current densities </li></ul><ul><li>3-4 stage manufacture </li></ul><ul><li>1/16th material use </li></ul><ul><li>50-80 fold reduction in energy during production </li></ul><ul><li>avoids of acidic waste streams and open-cast mining of magnesium oxide </li></ul>source: Sustainable Technologies Roadmap
