Earth-Saving Stone Paper with Zero Waste, Part 1 of 2

00:15:35

Earth-Saving Stone Paper with Zero Waste, Part 1 of 2

Can you imagine a paper made of stone instead of trees? Stone paper is made of stone particles and non-toxic resin. It produces zero waste and requires no water during its production, and has a much smaller carbon footprint compared to traditional tree-based papers. Stone paper was firstly launched to the market in 2008. Currently, stone paper accounts for 1% of all paper sales globally. When compared with regular pulp paper, stone paper is superior in several ways. For example, it is completely waterproof and has higher resistance to tearing.

Time Travel and Other Inventions: from Science Fiction to Reality, Part 2 of 2

Holographic communication has appeared in numerous science fiction writings as a fascinating form of telecommunication. One iconic depiction of a hologram is Princess Leia’s message to Obi-Wan Kenobi recorded by the droid R2-D2 in Star Wars: A New Hope. Recently, Microsoft released a technology called “Holoportation” whereby two distant individuals can communicate with each other as if one is teleported to the other’s vicinity.

Circular Fashion Technologies: Sustainable Future Clothing, Part 2 of 2

Today we will learn Incredible technology applied to clothing industry to achieve the “wasteless” target in a circular fashion movement. Well, Swiss-based Dimpora has developed a membrane which can integrate with any outdoor clothes through painting, spraying, coating, or printing. Different from other traditional types of membrane, Dimpora membrane is mineral-based, biodegradable, fluorine-free, waterproof, winterproof, breathable, and seamless. That means you will enjoy nature comfortably without causing any harm to the surroundings. With a zero-waste philosophy in mind, Hallotex – based in Barcelona, Spain, with a production station in Morocco – creates clothes from recycled raw materials. One of the company’s special projects is The Loop, a fascinating way of reusing fabric to recreate new garments. In Asia, Japan-based Synflux has developed a wonderful innovation to help clothing makers reduce waste in the cut procedure. Algorithm Couture allows the production of garments with minimal waste of material and energy. When it comes to a cruelty-free and sustainable way to produce stylish clothes, perhaps the first person who comes to mind is the award-winning and world-famous fashion designer Stella McCartney. A vegetarian and animal rights activist, Ms. McCartney does not use animal fur or skin in her creations, while she is also concerned with the final destination of what we wear as she knows the fashion industry is currently one of the most polluting industries globally. Bolt Threads is a state-of-the-art technological material company located in California, USA, and makes renewable and biodegradable fabrics in laboratories. One of their innovations is Microsilk, a vegan silk inspired by spider silk, but made by humans without harming any spiders. With Bolt Threads, Stella has designed incredibly modern and nature-respecting dresses using Microsilk. Those were just a few of many examples on how clothing manufacturing can go on without damaging nature and innocent creatures, while adopting concepts of “zero-waste” and “from cradle to cradle” with cooperation of consumers and material sorters. We would like to convey our sincere gratitude to all involved in the circular, planet-friendly, and animal life-sparing fashion industry.

Building on Water: Dutch Architect Koen Olthuis, Part 1 of 2

Koen Olthuis was featured in TIME Magazine’s 2007 list of the world’s most influential people, as his work has gained global interest. His firm, Waterstudio.NL, is behind a unique form of water-based architectural development that places homes, buildings and other structures on water by using floating foundations. Floating structures are mobile and can be transported from one location to another. There are many benefits to building on water, such as adding space to densely built areas, economic benefits, social benefits and the sustainability.

Biomimicry: Nature-inspired Solutions for a Green Future, Part 1 of 2

The central idea of biomimicry is that the strategies nature has adopted have evolved and succeeded over billions of years. These time-tested patterns and approaches have already solved many of the issues that we are addressing today. In 1997, the Shinkansen train nose was changed from the shape of a bullet to something which closely resembles a kingfisher’s beak, then a faster, cleaner and quieter Shinkansen electric train was born. By mimicking the shape of lotus leaves’ surface, one can create a paint for a building that has similar self-cleaning effect.

Transcending the Limits of Microchip Fabrication: Extreme UV Lithography, Part 1 of 2

The development of mobile phones has brought great convenience to users. How can such a small device have so many functions? The answer lies in its sophisticated “brain” — a whole collection of microchips. Inside a chip are a large number of densely packed circuit elements, which can contain billions of transistors. The size of each transistor is approximately one thousandth to ten-thousandth of a hair’s breadth. How are these circuits made? The answer is through “microlithography.” On today’s show we’ll introduce the advanced next-generation lithography technology—Extreme UV Lithography.
