Outline

Outline

Integrating technology for sustainability

Case study 1: Environmental Technology Centre;

Case study 2: Urban ecovillage.

Dr Martin Anda, Environmental Engineering


Integrating technology

Integrating Technology

  • Aim: to achieve sustainable development / sustainability.

  • Hypothesis: the interactions between technologies can increase sustainability outcomes when integrated in a single setting.

  • Method: select a range of technologies in each sector (water, food, energy, shelter) and combine them to achieve aim.

Dr Martin Anda, Environmental Engineering


Case 1 etc

Case 1: ETC

1992

  • University research centre with research into technologies for sustainability and demonstration.

  • 4 basic elements that support life (water, food, energy and shelter).

2001

1998

Dr Martin Anda, Environmental Engineering


Water

Water

  • Harvest water locally;

  • Recycle wastewater;

  • Reuse water and nutrients in wastewater for food production (e.g. permaculture, hydroponics)

  • Use renewable energy for pumping and purifying water (e.g. solar pumping, Solarflow)

  • Mimic natural systems for wastewater treatment (e.g. constructed wetland)

Integrating environmental technology for sustainable development

Food

  • Permaculture for food production and landscaping (‘edible landscape’);

  • Recycle food waste and other organic wastes back for food production;

  • Mimic nature for treatment of organic wastes (e.g. composting, anaerobic digestion for biogas production).

Dr Martin Anda, Environmental Engineering


Energy

Energy

  • Use renewable sources

  • Solar photovoltaic

  • Solar thermal (e.g. hot water heater, solar oven)

  • Wind

  • Biomass (especially organic wastes)

    • Biogas, biodiesel

    • Hydrogen, ethanol (research stage)

Dr Martin Anda, Environmental Engineering


Shelter

Shelter

  • Use waste materials

    • Recycled concrete (for floor), bricks (rammed earth walls), plastics (panels, cupboards), glass (to replace gravel in concrete), flyash (in concrete paving)

  • Green architecture

    • Solar passive (building orientation, placement of windows, thermal mass, ventilation, landscaping)

  • Winner 2002 WA Environment Awards (Ecobuilding category)

Dr Martin Anda, Environmental Engineering


Lessons learnt from etc

Lessons Learnt from ETC

  • Many options available (no single best solution)

    • Costs, availability, advances in knowledge and technology, personal preferences

  • Compromises required to achieve balance between many conflicting factors.

Dr Martin Anda, Environmental Engineering


Case study 2 urban ecovillage

Case study 2: Urban ecovillage

  • Walking village surrounded by landscapes for water, food and renewable energy services; linked by mass rapid transit

  • Harvesting water and managing the water cycle locally

  • Local food production and recycling of nutrients

  • Greenfield land developments (e.g. National Lifestyle Villages Pty Ltd)

Dr Martin Anda, Environmental Engineering


Nlv bridgewater lifestyle village

NLV Bridgewater Lifestyle Village

  • 389 lightweight manufactured park homes;

  • Land-lease Caravan Park title (60 years); weekly rates;

  • Central management at Perth head office (multiple villages) + onsite Village Care & Maintenance Team;

  • Amenities: clubhouse, admin, caravans & boats parking, community gardens, community bus;

  • Winner 2007 Banksia Award (Built Environment).

Lessons learnt from nlv

Lessons Learnt from NLV

  • The question of scale: At what scale should we integrate technologies?

  • Emerging decentralised technologies allow integration to occur at household scale AND urban village scale;

  • Capacity building required for ongoing operation and maintenance;

  • Integrate metering equipment simultaneous with installation to enable performance monitoring for evaluation.
