Question: International Symposium on Global Sustainability Institute of Sustainable ScienceCan technology development make the sustainable society?－not for the short-term, but to support the development without sacrificing environment, economy and citizen life.Short-term technology, i.e. increased production may not provide ultimate solution for sustainability.What does technology have to do?- to provide long-term solution for sustainabilityBut, the researchers do not understand how their work would CHANGE the social system.- regardless of the source, energy itself is not sustainable.
Small quis A cell of yeast doubles in an hour. Each cell consumes １０－１０mol sugar tomake ethanol as follows; C6H１２O6 →２C2H5OH ＋ ２CO2 Initial condition： ①glucose 18 g in 100 cc water, 1 cell of yeast ②glucose 90 g in 100 cc water, 1 cell of yeastDescribe what happens. Yeasts cannot live in 12 % ethanol or more.（log2=0.301, where ２１０＝１０３）Solutions：１） cells n, time t(h), then number of yeast is n=2t consumption of glucose is expressed : Σ10-10n(t-1)=Σ10-102t =10-10(2t-1 )(mol) t-1 where glucose is 180g/moland ethanol is 46g/mol. In 100ccof water, maximum t=0allowable ethanol is 0.3mol equivalent, that comes from 0.15mol sugar. ( n(t-1)+n(t-2)+…+n2+n+1)(n-1) = nt-1 with initial condition ①, glucose0.1mol is completely exhausted at t=30 with ②, while sugar could be spent out 32.3hours, yeasts die at 30.7hour.
There are various ways to explain what happens.Equations are strong to calculate the exact amount, but sometimes inadequateto explain to others.In any case, Yeasts extinct after the exponential increase in number by 1) running out of foods : RESOURCE CONSTRAINT 2) killed by pollution mad by themselves : ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMIs Mankind free from this mechanism? After the exponential increase ofpopulation, either RESOURCE or ENVIRONMENT may kill us. Can we acquire unlimited clean energy resource? Does it assure SUSTAINABILITY?
Lessons to Learn０）respond within the time and resources….imagination helps.１）There could be several Solutions. ーvarious approaches ーequations and numbers are not perfect. Sometimes inadequate. －equations are only useful when implication is well understood. simple explanation works usually better.２）Energy, environment and resource problem has a very simple structure. to know and to understand is different. －analogy is a very strong tool. －but,excessive simplification (sometimes on purpose) is dangerous. （Even for yeast, mother nature is not such simple.）３）Real problem comes later.

Question・In a closed water system, algae, water flea, and fishes areliving.-Describe the mechanism that this system runs stably withoutany input/output of materials. fish energy energy Water flea bodily wastes algae lives environment society materials waste systemWater tank：system energy balance？ material balance？ what else？
energy energy lives environment heat society enthropy materials system waste (1) energy balance fish Water flea ・input：light ・output：heat bodily wastes algae (2) material recycle (3) these are not enough! Wat is needed? If not how the system cannot be stable?２．What is different from the case of yeast in the last class?３．What lesson do you have to learn?

Environment from system viewInternational Symposium on Global Sustainability Institute of Sustainable Science Previous concepts ① Environment is given favour ② Creatures either adapt or fail constraintsENVIRONMENT ③ better adaptation causes Adaptation Creature evolution disturbance ④ Creatures disturb environment ① Environment changes with Present concept creatures living there ② Combination of Reformed ENVIRONMENT reform Creature environment and creature make material cycle System ③If System is suitable for creature ENVIRONMENT’ and sustainable, it survives Material cycle System ④Sustainability is an accidental consequence
Growth in the local environment International Symposium on Global SustainabilityInstitute of Sustainable Science ENVIRONMENT Each reformed Energy Material cyclematerial nuclei growth saturation ① System has a process of the generation of nuclei, growth at the front, and saturation. ② Growth speed is described with Logistic functions. ③Stable state is controlled by the constraints of supply and environmental capacity
Logistic curve growth International Symposium on Global Sustainability Institute of Sustainable Science Saturation occurs in all material cycle systems. ②growth ③stabilization ①generation①nucli generation and their growth environment and resource does not limit②glowth look like exponential③stabilized growth, resource and/or environment limits④in the stable state, material recycle established with other organisms sharing the same environment. (when it is successful to survive)⑤ genetic change is neutral and steady
evolution International Symposium on Global Sustainability Institute of Sustainable Science ②generation of new species ①stable ③evolution (progress) of a species ④extinctionSame logistic process are applied all the species on theearth.This mechanism well explains apparent evolution of thespecies.
Problem: International Symposium on Global Sustainability Institute of Sustainable ScienceWe need energy. Mainly to sustain our body and activity.－The energy drives the circulation of material in the environment.We humankind increased our activities with increased energy demand and supply.Energy technology is being developed and improving.But, the researchers do not understand how their work would CHANGE the social system.- we have to understand how energy technology change our world.
Institute of Sustainable Science Economy growth International Symposium on Global Sustainability Energy Sustainability Development Energy Demand Growth (GDP) PopulationEnergy supply causes population increase→energy demandEven a clean energy is not sustainable under the industrial revolution model.
Evaluation of Energy International Symposium on Global Sustainability Institute of Sustainable ScienceFuture energy must respond to thedemand of the society.・All the R&D programs are evaluated from the aspect of cost effectiveness = “Value for Money”. －All the energy technologies are evaluated from the aspect of future social demand. － “Effect” can be measured in monetary terms. －However, market is not the only place where its value is estimated. － Energy supply affects environment, public and society through various paths other than market. (Externality) →Investment for research and development can be justified from the expected effect to the future society.

Resource exhausts? Institute of Sustainable Science International Symposium on Global Sustainability ・What is R/P ratio? Exhausting year?R/P = resource (t)/consumption(t/y) year 164 85 67 41oil gas coal uranium change of R/P of oilEnergy resources and R/P ratio by BP2005
Never run out Institute of Sustainable Science International Symposium on Global SustainabilityIt is not a lack of materials ・R/P ratio shows the measure of demand to start exploration →people will not start resource search until it is stronglyneeded newly found resource may be sold after R/P years later. →R/P ratio controls the searching activity.・when resource price increases, expensive sources disregarded as “resource” becomes available.(distant, poor, expensive, unconventional..)・increased price discourages consumption and promote savings.・technology to find, produce, process and use improves always.・resources are substituted. “Stone age finished before stones run out” →nevertheless resource constraints and sometimes run out ….particularly “renewables” would.

Energy for sustainability International Symposium on Global Sustainability Institute of Sustainable ScienceFuture energy must respond to thedemand of the society.・clean.・ abundant.・ economical. －However, market is not the only place where its value is estimated. － Energy supply affects environment, public and society through various paths other than market. (Externality) － Demand does not guarantee the sales. Supply chain constraint →Limitation →glow speed
Sustainability question Institute of Sustainable Science International Symposium on Global Sustainability Developers and users are different by area and generation.Innovative technology provides clean energy to respond demands. ーmay we satisfy the demands if energy is clean? ーdoesn’t clean energy jeopardize sustainability?Impacts of the energy technology can be analyzed －does it analyze all the risks? ー is transition (growth) always good?…good index for “sustainability” yet to find.
