Lecture 12: Waste and Manufacturing
Design:
- Retrofit old common equipment to be more efficient and save energy
- Saves energy and possible materials
Examples:
1. Glass industry educe energy by 50%
Improve insulation reduce heat loss out stack
2. Weiss oil refinery Germany
End of the pipe
New Technologies:
- Push efficiency along
- Need to develop a whole-system design to make these innovations work
- Optimistic Lomborg-type argument
Controls:
- Localized monitoring and controls
Whole System Thinking
Office Chair textiles
o Tested 8,000 cloth treatments 38 were non-toxic
o C. 20% less cost pollution control and reduced worker safety inspections and controls
New Processes:
- Materials sciece depend on “heat, beat, and treat methods”
- Biomimic
replicate nature with simple abundant materials
Oil and hair used for oil spills
Saving Materials:
- Each object is as strong as its weakest part
- Reduce font size and double side same materials just less

Document Summary

Retrofit old common equipment to be more efficient and save energy. Examples: glass industry educe energy by 50% Improve insulation reduce heat loss out stack: weiss oil refinery germany. Need to develop a whole-system design to make these innovations work. Office chair textiles: tested 8,000 cloth treatments 38 were non-toxic, c. 20% less cost pollution control and reduced worker safety inspections and controls. Materials sciece depend on heat, beat, and treat methods . Biomimic replicate nature with simple abundant materials. Oil and hair used for oil spills. Each object is as strong as its weakest part.
