Could somebody help me with a little detail, please? I didn't understand the 4th step of water usage, after it has been flushed. What do they do with that?
Thanks for breaking that little language barrier for me :-)
The black water goes into the Septic tank which has a south facing window to speed the anaerobic process and help turn that sludge into fertilizer. I wouldn't use it to fertilize food though...
When that fog rolls in, the Namib Desert beetle is ready with a moisture-collection system exquisitely adapted to its desert habitat. Inspired by this dime-sized beetle, MIT researchers have produced a new material that can capture and control tiny amounts of water.
The material combines a superhydrophobic (water-repelling) surface with superhydrophilic (water-attracting) bumps that trap water droplets and control water flow. The work was published in the online version of Nano Letters on Tuesday, May 2.
"Hard Work" is something most people in the USA are afraid of.
Would of been a great idea 100 year's ago but considering how materialistic most of the population is it wont happen,there's no "Bling Bling " involved,lol.
Another reason is that the large corparate companie's that supply the material's and hardware to build home's will find a way to not allow it because they would loose to much money.The same goes for large Real Estate and construction companie's.
Yup, they're testing two different approaches on a larger scale for buildings. IIRC, one of the systems is coming from India (you may want to look it up on Google). The secret is a concrete that hardens fast enough to support the next layer. You can "print" (or "plot") complete costum buildings in no time with that system. I like the earthship approach better, though... I'd love to live like a Hobbit :-)
