Environmental design

Environmental design is a new approach in planning consumer products and industrial processes that are ecologically sustainable and intelligent, and healthy both the environment and humans. Environment design based on the work of innovative thinker’s chemist Michael Braungart, business Swedish physician Dr. Karl- Henrik Robert. The industrial revolution 200 years ago, raw materials such as minerals, clean water and timer seemed inexhaustible; nature regarded to be tamed by us as it was a hostile force, to begin with.

This old philosophy and approach have given us the abundance of material things but has produced massive pollution and environmental degradation. These approaches are besides very energy demanding and lead to an incredible waste. By this means a car might that only 1% burned in a car actually moves the passengers while all the rest is used to vehicles itself. It produces nitrogen oxides, unburned hydrocarbon, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and rubber waste. The car life cycle is short, and all its parts need to be recycled or end up in a landfill. Therefore, a brand new approach to design is following new guidelines to use the energy for its purpose. For example, in living systems, almost nothing discarded or unused. The wastes from one organism become the food of another. Industrial processes, to be sustainable over the long-term, should be designed on similar principles, designers argue. Use of renewable energy and nonpolluting materials, reuse, recycle, energy-efficient is keywords. Evaluating of the new economy based upon productivity by how many people are gainfully and meaningfully employed. It is a very interesting fresh concept, of how we see environmental design in the future.
