Ultrashort-Pulse Laser Could Solve Dilemma of Nuclear Waste Disposal.... Researchers in Lithuania have developed an ultrashort-pulse laser that could eradicate nuclear waste and decrease the decay period from tens of thousands of years to seconds, hours, or months, depending on the material, they said.

Footage shows the man tipping the fridge down ravine in Valle de Almanzora

A man who was caught on film fly-tipping a fridge down a ravine in southern Spain has been fined and forced to drag it back up after being identified by police.

The video went viral after the man, who works for a company that recycles domestic electronic equipment in Olula del Río in Almería was seen tipping the fridge in the Valle de Almanzora. In the video, the man and his companion who filmed the incident can be heard joking about “recycling, let’s go, let’s see how many flips it can do”.

The city was dying. Then somebody had a great idea to save it – make it the greenest place on Earth

‘People talk about Eskilstuna as the place where nothing new is invented,” says the shopping mall manager Anna Bergström. An hour’s train ride from Stockholm, the “Sheffield of Sweden” has had something of an image problem in recent years. Once a steel-producing powerhouse, the town has fallen on hard times, thanks to the rapid decline in the industry throughout the 1970s. It now has an unemployment rate that is almost double the national average of 8%.

But the town has come up with an answer: recycling. Far from the Scandinavian stereotype of glossy modernity, Eskilstuna’s wide-paved, near-deserted grey streets are populated by kitsch 1980s pizzerias, workers’ cafes and gloomy pubs – not a place where you would expect to find such a radical approach to the environment. Yet since 2012, Eskilstuna has implemented a spate of green initiatives, vying to make it the most environmentally friendly city in Sweden –... Show more...

#Radiation 6,000 Times Higher In Giant Clams Near #Runi Dome Than In #Open #Ocean

A few weeks ago, I was reporting that the #Runit #Dome had some cracks in the concrete from where the #nuclear #waste stored in it was most probably #leaking into the open ocean.
Now researchers have found high levels of radiation in giant clams near the Central Pacific site"

This Post has two points, environmental and economic. Firstly, the unconstrained consumption of a shared resource, ie: water from New Zealand sources, by self interested individuals/ corporations will lead to congestion and the depletion of the resource for all. In the case of water bottling companies taking a public resource and privatising it to sell to us and the world, Individuals should never triumph over collective rationality and care. In this regard, I dont believe anyone should be bottling water in New Zealand at the expense of locals. The negative impacts of plastic bottles and the ethical questionability of selling water would make factories unjust. However if Water bottling factories had to be built for whatever reason, the factories should be government owned public industries. Privatisation of necessities is a slippery slope towards mass corporate takeovers of our lives. Because of this, the government must step in to control these resources for the benefit of the public. #newzealand... Show more...

🇮🇹-Gran parte dei problemi legati all'enorme mole di rifiuti in plastica potrebbero essere evitati se solo non fossero prodotte e realizzate confezioni di questo tipo.
Mazzi d'aglio racchiusi in contenitori di polistirolo, non sarebbero meglio sfusi?

🇬🇧-Most of the problems related to the huge amount of plastic waste could be avoided if only these types of packaging were not produced and manufactured.
Bunches of garlic enclosed in polystyrene containers, wouldn't they be better off?

🇮🇹-Abbiamo deciso di pubblicare questo video per mostrare i danni che oggetti semplici come una busta di plastica possono provocare agli animali.
Nella nostra vita quotidiana cerchiamo di ridurre il nostro impatto ambientale non acquistando plastica usa e getta.
Anche una busta in meno può fare la differenza.

Unser Stand heute war ein voller Erfolg. Alle Flyer mit Tipps für Plastikvermeidung im Alltag sind weg und es werden hoffentlich viele davon umgesetzt. Klar stehen wir ganz am Anfang und viele Leute denken es bringt nichts, allerdings ist jeder noch so kleine Schritt wichtig. Danke an das Team, die Interessenten und alle Helfer die spontan dazu kamen. 💚

Today I went to see a friend who lives on the other side of Utrecht. I decided to go by bike this time (about 12 km) and when I was riding on the Catharijnesingel, near Central Station but on the other side where I don't go that often, I saw this. A giant whale made of plastic waste. Impressive!

Coke Company confeeses to produce more than 3.3 million tonnes of plastic garbage


The figures – which the company has refused in the past to disclose – reveal the amount of plastic packaging Coca-Cola produced in 2017. The company did not reveal the scale of its bottle production but when its packaging footprint is translated into 500ml PET plastic bottles, it amounts to about 108bn bottles a year, more than a fifth of the world’s PET bottle output of about 500bn bottles a year.

“We applaud the companies that are publishing this data and encourage all companies that make and use plastics to disclose their plastics footprint.”

“Ambition levels must continue to rise to make real strides in addressing global plastic pollution by 2025, and moving from commitment to action is crucial.”

Los residuos electrónicos constituyen actualmente la basura de más rápido crecimiento en el mundo.
En la actualidad se recicla formalmente apenas 20 por ciento de los desechos electrónicos.
De no producirse ningún cambio, los residuos tecnológicos podrían casi triplicarse para el año 2050.

Beginning with the principles of the Stirling engine, SoundEnergy's THEAC thermal acoustic engine takes heat – either industrial waste heat or solar heat – and turns it into powerful cooling without requiring any other power source. This completely renewable technology could prove highly disruptive.

Dirty work: a photo essay
https://newint.org/features/2018/11/01/living-from-waste

Fifteen million people – including children – earn a living from the waste. They often work in dangerous conditions, risking their health, sometimes their lives; and struggle to improve their working conditions. Dirty Work showcases the everyday lives of those making a living in the waste trade.
