Connected design

At the core of developing sustainable design is to learn a basic set of values and a deep understanding that everything is connected. Sustainable design or meta design processes use’s tool that is wide and not narrowed. The concept that everything is connected is far from new; in Buddhism, one of the fundamental pillars is a profound understanding that everything is connected and dependent. In sustainable design Buddhism can teach us that an idea of causality is extremely important. Nothing can exist of its own accord. Translated into a language we understand is that influence through a design process of different scale influence someone or something directly or indirectly locally or global in our society. It can make an impact now, here or elsewhere or soon. Both as a tool of design and sustainable development connected can teach us to be less selfish and evolve compassion, which is one of the main reasons to care for the environment anyhow.

Tissue engineering

Tissue engineering can perhaps be best defined through the use as a combination of cells, engineering materials, and suitable biochemical factors to improve or replace biological function bio materials. Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Engineering are fields of disciplinary applied within tissue engineering; the main function is to replace, repair or enhance biological function of diseased and damaged human body parts. The materials used for the process to restore issue can be polymer hydro-gel, self-assembly, non-woven matrix, Nano-fibrous electro spun matrices, 3D weaving, or any other textile technology-based techniques, depending upon their structural and functional requirements. Tissue engineering concept

The market globally is estimated to be 725 billion, growing approximately 10 to 15% per annum. Bio material’s application consists of low-tech bio material-based prosthetic devices used in the fields of high-tech bio materials, orthopaedics, dental, drug delivery, cardiovascular, ophthalmology, bone regeneration, wound healing, bio-adhesives, radio-therapeutics and cosmetic surgery. Growth figures of tissue engineering within the cosmetic industry are as high as 10–25% per annum.

Main applications of bio materials are:

  • Bio-films/membranes/barrier
  • Tissue regeneration
  • Bio-engineered nerves/tendons
  • Artificial skin
  • Wound management
  • Absorbents/wound dressings
  • Homeostatic agent

Tipping point indicators

Tipping point

Tipping point is an irreversible moment when the dreaded feedback loop begins. The most central issue today for the scientific community is the tipping point; have humans already went too far, and may we now be helpless to stop and reverse global warming? A tipping point happens when the temperature gets high enough to cause forests to give up their CO2 rather than absorb it, those tons of gas rise temperature even more and cause the loop to spin faster in the wrong direction. What kind of indications give answers to when we reach the point of no return? More information about tipping point indicators BAMS State of the climate – 2009

The following potential climatic indications are happening now:

  • Destruction of the Amazon rain forest
  • Disruption of the North Atlantic current
  • Decrease in ocean salinity
  • Disintegration of Greenland’s ice sheet
  • Slowdown of the Antarctic circumpolar current
  • Collapse of the West Antarctic ice sheet
  • Thinning of the ozone layer
  • Recession of glaciers on the Tibetan Plateau
  • Shrinking of the Sahara desert
  • Disruptions in the Asian and West African monsoon
  • Unleashing into the atmosphere of Tundra methane stores
  • Creation of a permanent El Niño conditions

Alginate Adhesive Foam Heel Dressing

Alginate fibres

Alginate fibres can be tracked back as far as 3000BC, use of seaweed extracts for medicine and food has been frequently applied in history, and another era is food industry, pharmaceuticals and textiles. In 1880, it was developed a new method for extraction of iodine and salts from seaweed and named the substance ‘algin’. The most widespread commercial use is the brown highly viscosity alginate fibres. Alginate is non-flammable and combined with other fibres. It takes on a sheer appearance. The biological strength and flexibility to the algal long with the ability to produce fibres from its isomers, make alginate the ideal wound dressing. When added to the fibre it provides a superior wound-care dressing.

Equity

Equity: using the law to restructure human nature. It’s been proved in the that a more fair society it develops a better human skills in almost all fields of social importance. The book The Spirit Level: Why More Equal Societies Almost Always Do Better was published in 2009 and highlight the fact that in almost every era social problems are significantly better than in more unequal rich countries; physical health, mental health, drug abuse, education, imprisonment, obesity, social mobility, trust and community life, violence, teenage pregnancies, and child well-being.

The Triple bottom line

The triple bottom line is a development of the existing economic model whereof revenue minus expenses, which is either “loss” if negative, or “profit” if positive.; it adds two more bottom lines, environmental and social concerns. Triple bottom line is often referred to as the “three pillars”; profit, people and planet.
PEOPLE
Social progress:
education community outreach human rights diversity
Socio environmental:
environment health & safety, global climate change crisis management, environmental policy
PLANET
environmental stewardship:
biodiversity clean air – water – land emission reductions minimize waste
eco efficiency:
resource efficiency product stewardship life-cycle management regional materials
PROFIT
economic growth:
innovation, capital efficiency risk management, growth enhancement
socio economic:
job creations skills enhancement local economic impact social investments

Recycled fibres

It should be no surprise that recycled polyester represented the lion’s share of recycled textiles in the apparel and textile industries. Sports apparel, uniforms, and home furnishings as well as lifestyle products were the leading users of the fibre among respondents. Those companies able to provide forecasts for 2011 and 2012 anticipate steady growth of recycled polyester products and most indicate a high level of interest in other recycled fibre such as nylon and cotton
