‘Waste No More’ Environmental Project to Debut in the U.S. at Park Avenue Armory

IT ALL ADDS UP: As part of the fashion industry’s ongoing crusade to make sustainability a more palatable subject, the art installation “Waste No More” will be staged at the Park Avenue Armory starting Thursday.
On view through Nov. 12, the environmentally oriented project will be set up in conjunction with The Salon Art + Design. Curated by Li Edelkoort, the show is meant to raise awareness about the mammoth amount of textile waste that consumers contribute to annually and to also show visitors the upsides of the circular economy.
An estimated $ 500 billion worth of clothing that is barely worn and rarely recycled is lost annually. More simply put, the average U.S. citizen throws away 70 pounds of clothing each year. Without any improvement, the fashion industry will use up a quarter of the world’s carbon budget by 2050, according to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
With a name that seems to riff on the theatrical immersion experience, “Sleep No More,” Waste No More will be set up in the reception rooms of the Upper East Side Armory. It is presented by DesignWork, which is part of Renew, an initiative that turns previously owned Eileen Fisher clothing into felted material for fashion, home

Biofiltration of Waste Gases in Africa and the Caribbean

Biofiltration of Waste Gases in Africa and the Caribbean


Odors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are typical products of industrial processes. VOCs may be originated from chemical mechanisms, solvent use, petroleum processing and several other sources, while odors are emitted mainly from livestocks, food processing industries, landfills, and waste water treatment plants. They are not known to cause serious diseases, however their persistence provokes nuisances to sensitive people in the case of odors whereas VOCs are precursors of pollutants that degrade the ozone layer. Therefore, the need of waste gas treatment technologies has increased tremendously. Biofiltration is a technique that employs a biofilm, containing a consortium of microorganisms in contact with water and waste gases, which by consuming the organic compounds present in the exhaust gases sustain their growth and simultaneously eliminate the content of several pollutants. It has been proven as a very efficient technique for the treatment of VOCs and odor emissions. In this book you will find an assessment of the potential of biofiltration to be established in Africa and the Caribbean (AF & CA). It is focused for engineers and technicians that provide services in air quality management and want to venture in these regions.

Waste in Focus: What America Throws Away (PHOTOS)

Photographer Peter Menzel captured America’s attention with his last photo project, What the World Eats, and his book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets. In that project, Menzel’s images powerfully portrayed differences in income, nutrition, and lifestyle.

His latest project, centering on what Americans across the country throw away and recycle, is no less powerful. The images that make up Waste in Focus feature eight American families surrounded by their weekly waste broken down into what is recycled and what goes to the landfill. The images make it impossible to deny how much waste some households generate, or that it is possible to reduce the amount of waste in our homes by making a few simple changes.
