This 12-Year-Old Built an Underwater Robot to Fight Plastic Pollution
 
Jan 06, 2019
Category:

Her project is called ‘Developing a Smart Infrared Based ROV to Identify Microplastics in Marine Environments’ – ROV stands for remotely operated vehicle. Inspired by a visit to the beach, where she was struck by the volume of plastic littering the sand, Du has developed an underwater vehicle fitted with an infrared camera that can detect plastic resting on the seabed.

The problem of plastic pollution in the ocean is widely acknowledged and well documented. Yet solutions are still only starting to take shape.

The remains of a sperm whale found in Indonesia in mid-November demonstrate the extent of the plastic pollution problem. (Read: Taiwan & Indonesia Singing the Blues for the Seas)

Almost 6 kg of plastic waste was found in the animal’s stomach, including 115 cups. Plastic has even been found inside freshwater fish living in the Amazon basin. Fish ranging in size from 4cm to almost 30cm, including the parrot pacu, the redhook silver dollar, and the red-bellied piranha, were all found to have consumed plastics and polymers.

Du decided to take part in the competition after seeing the extent of plastic litter at the beach, and how varied it was. “As I was collecting it, I couldn’t help but notice just how much plastics there were,” she says.

Different types of plastic absorb and reflect light in their own unique way, depending on their composition. This is the basis of many automated plastic recycling facilities – light is shone onto the flow of plastic along a conveyor, sensors detect which light is reflected and can group the plastic waste according to type.

The use of light to detect substance composition informed the choices Du made when developing her ROV. Its camera takes photos of the surface of the seabed and compares those images with a reference library she developed based on an online database. That allows it to tell plastics apart from other types of materials.

“The real invention here is the sensing,” roboticist and engineer Dana Yoerger told the Smithsonian Institute.

Eco Expo Asia welcomed record visitor numbers to discover the latest green tech and environmental protection solutions
 
Nov 29, 2018
Category:

HONG KONG --( ASIA TODAY )-- The 13th edition of the show, held in Hong Kong from 25 ‒ 28 October 2018, welcomed a record 14,824 visitors from 106 countries and regions. With 54% of visitors coming from outside of Hong Kong, the expo lived up to its billing as an international gathering point for the environmental protection industry. Jointly organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), the fair is also co-organised by the Environment Bureau of the Government of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

The 2018 fair embraced the theme of “Waste Less Save More for a Low-carbon Future” to align with the global push to raise environmental awareness and strive for better waste management. Highlighted environmental sectors at the show included Waste Management and Recycling, Water Treatment and Quality Management, Green Buildings and Energy Efficiency and Green Transportation. In total, 338 exhibitors from 19 countries and regions participated. The Startup Zone also returned after a successful debut last year. 20 startups showcased their innovative new products and technologies offering a glimpse into the future direction of the green tech industry.

In line with the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area scheme to link the cities in the region and strengthen economic integration, Eco Expo Asia saw pavilions and group participations from all nine municipalities in the region as well as the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macao. The Greater Bay Area Zone represented a major presence at the fair. In recognition of the extensive green business opportunities emanating from the region, a Greater Bay Area Forum was also organised to reveal more about green projects and future developments of interest to the environmental protection industry.

Eco Asia Conference among the key event programme sessions to gather global green industry experts The Eco Asia Conference is a high-level gathering that invites influential industry experts and academics from around the world to discuss important environmental issues. Some 40 speakers delivered talks and discussions on wide-ranging topics that touched on pressing environmental concerns affecting Hong Kong and Asia as well as far-reaching global issues. Meanwhile, a wide range of other event sessions delved into other essential environmental topics including smart construction, green transportation and a government department forum.

Mr Syed Mubarak, Director of Sustainability & MEP-Plant Operations, Sands China Ltd, attended the Green Buildings and the Renewable Energies and Usage sessions of the conference: “While the sessions focused on very different topics, they both offered abundant solutions to help combat climate change and that’s ultimately why we are all attending this fair, looking for fresh new ideas and to connect with different people.”

Comments from exhibitors:

“We are exhibiting reverse vending machines for recycling items like plastic bottles, aluminium cans and glass bottles which operate on a user deposit scheme. We were thrilled to have the chance to speak with representatives from the Hong Kong Environmental Protection Department and explain to them how the system works. We are exhibiting this year as we think our system would integrate very easily into Hong Kong and around Asia. The fair is a great chance to meet potential clients.”

Mr Andre Farstad, Business Development, Circular Economy, TOMRA Sorting Technology (Xiamen) Co Ltd (Norway)

“This year we met many new customers and they found our products very interesting. We managed to verbally confirm some orders at the fair, some from the private sector, some from various government departments. Eco Expo Asia has always been able to help us to achieve our exhibiting targets and it is well established in Hong Kong. We will come back next year, and we may even need a bigger booth!”

Mr Matthew Hin Sum Ho, General Manager, Enviro Process Technologies Co Ltd (Hong Kong)

Comments from buyers:

“My business concentrates on waste management solutions and I create waste management plans for different types of clients, ranging from governmental bodies to private organisations. I found that the exhibitors have been very friendly and happy to take the time to analyse my requirements and suggest solutions. This is much more important than just being sold a product as you are able to see whether it truly fits with your needs. In the past I have only visited environmental protection trade shows in Europe, but this year I wanted to try somewhere in Asia and Hong Kong seemed like the perfect place to start, I haven’t been disappointed.”

Mr Rustem Bassenov, Managing Partner, Tau Innovative Solutions (Kazakhstan)

“Our company primarily focuses on the IT aspect of the environmental industry. This year, I was searching for products related to energy management, sensors, odour-removers and air purifiers. I have found many useful business contacts at the fair and some are potential clients that we may cooperate with in the future. Eco Expo Asia is the major environmental fair in Hong Kong, and it is an effective platform for business traders to exchange information. I will definitely return next year.”

Mr Frederick Lee, Project Manager, Digital Green Technology Co Limited, Hong Kong

Comment from a speaker:

“I always enjoy coming to Eco Expo Asia as you are exposed to a variety of new, unexpected solutions. The panel discussions at this conference are a great platform for sharing and it was a good opportunity for me to update people on the environmental situation in Malaysia. It’s important to have these fringe programme events, and I think that we need more informative discussions year-round. This is also a good platform for networking; there were a lot of government officials from China, and I’ve met overseas media including from Finland. There’s no doubt that this is a good place to meet interesting people.”

Dr Theng Lee Chong, Deputy Chairman of the Association of Environmental Consultants and Companies of Malaysia (AECCOM), Malaysia

The next edition of Eco Expo Asia will be held from 30 October ‒ 2 November 2019 at AsiaWorld-Expo. For more information, please email ecoexpo@hongkong.messefrankfurt.com or exhibitions@hktdc.org

    Singapore’s HES Unveils Plans for Regional Hydrogen-Electric Passenger Aircraft
     
    Oct 02, 2018
    Category:

    SINGAPORE & PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--After 12 years developing hydrogen propulsion systems for small unmanned aircraft, HES Energy Systems is today unveiling its plans for Element One, the world’s first regional hydrogen-electric passenger aircraft.

    One century after the start of commercial aviation, HES is joining forces with a variety of partners to pioneer a new form of aerial mobility: quiet and zero carbon, personalized, on-demand, decentralized and economically inclusive of rural communities.

    Designed as a zero-emissions aircraft, Element One merges HES’ ultra-light hydrogen fuel cell technologies with a distributed electric aircraft propulsion design. With virtually no change to its current drone-scale systems, HES’ distributed system allows for modularity and increased safety through multiple system redundancies.

    Element One is designed to fly 4 passengers for 500 km to 5000 km depending on whether hydrogen is stored in gaseous or liquid form. This performance is several orders of magnitude better than any battery-electric aircraft attempt so far, opening new aerial routes between smaller towns and rural areas using an existing and dense network of small-scale airports and aerodromes.

    Originally from Singapore, HES has been working with a number of fast-moving start-ups and SMEs in France over the past year and exploring various locations to execute its Element One vision, including Aerospace Valley, the global aviation R&D hub located in Toulouse. Its parent company H3 Dynamics has been a symbol of intensifying technological cooperation between the two countries as part of the 2018 Year of Innovation.

    The promise of hydrogen-electric power could shape the future of aviation. “It’s now possible to break past the endurance limits of battery-electric flight using HES’ ultra-light hydrogen energy storage in a distributed propulsion arrangement,” says Taras Wankewycz, founder of HES. “Element One’s design paves the way for renewable hydrogen as a long-range fuel for electric aviation.”

    Refueling Element One will take no more than 10 minutes using an automated nacelle swap system that applies AGVs and automated warehouse operations such as those used by Amazon and Alibaba.

    Last week, HES announced its plans to begin associating on-site hydrogen generation with fuel cell powered unmanned aircraft across a network of hydrogen-ready airports, in preparation for larger-scale electric aircraft such as Element One. HES is now in discussion with industrial-scale hydrogen producers to explore energy-efficient refueling systems using renewable solar or wind energy produced locally.

    In an effort to explore new business models that help position Element One into new travel segments, HES has aligned its zero-carbon aviation roadmap with Wingly, a French startup that offers flight sharing services for decentralized and regional air travel: “We analyzed the millions of destination searches made by the community of 200,000 pilots and passengers on our platform and confirm there is a tremendous need for inter-regional transport between secondary cities,” says Emeric de Waziers, CEO of Wingly. “By combining autonomous emission free aircraft such as Element One, digital community-based platforms like Wingly and the existing high density network of airfields, we can change the paradigm. France alone offers a network of more than 450 airfields but only 10% of these are connected by regular airlines. We will simply connect the remaining 90%.”

    Targeting a first flying prototype before 2025, HES is in the process of building a technical and commercial consortium involving both the aviation and hydrogen eco-systems.

    About HES Energy Systems (Singapore)

    HES Energy Systems specializes in building high performance hydrogen fuel cell systems to extend the flying range of autonomous aerial vehicles. With a presence in Singapore since 2009, HES has grown to become a global leader in developing ultra-light fuel cells and hydrogen energy storage systems. Hired by tier-one UAV manufacturers and leading aerospace institutes around the world for over 12 years, HES has developed a variety of hydrogen storage approaches to continuously push the limits of on-board, off-grid or portable energy. HES’ parent company H3 Dynamics Holdings is backed by Japan’s SPARX representing Toyota Mirai Creation Fund, ACA Partners, and Capital Management Group.

    Category:

    SINGAPORE – SEPTEMBER 05, 2018 --( ASIA TODAY )-- The Singapore Green Building Week opens its doors today, with its two flagship trade platforms off to a great start. Build Eco Xpo (BEX) Asia, Southeast Asia’s leading trade exhibition for the region’s green building market, and Mostra Convegno Expocomfort (MCE) Asia, a regional HVAC-R, water and energy exhibition, kick off today, offering visitors a glimpse into the array of innovations that will soon become the norm in buildings and spaces of the future.

    Taking place from 5 to 7 September, BEX and MCE Asia, along with the annual International Green Building Conference (IGBC), offer a strategic platform for key stakeholders to deliberate on the future of green buildings and sustainable development in the region and globally. Over 12,000 international visitors, including green building industry professionals, thought leaders, policy makers and end-users are expected to congregate at the events to discuss and exchange ideas on the latest innovations that will shape the future of sustainable cities.

    Diverse solutions to cater to Asia’s diverse needs

    Capturing attention on the show floor this year is Surbana Jurong’s curated showcase, “City of ____”. Depicting the possibilities that technology can bring to future cities, the setup brings to life an environment that integrates sustainable, smart and productive technologies to transform how humans interact with their surroundings. The life-sized urban mock-up will allow visitors to visualise how spaces associated with living, work and play can be reimagined to bring about an improvement in quality of life.

    Walking through the simulated city grid, visitors will witness first-hand the benefits offered by DVUCA’s city management system, which enables better traffic monitoring and optimised energy usage. This curated exhibit also showcases how innovative technologies such as (these)abilities’s keyguard will level the playing field at the workplace between the able-bodied and people with disabilities. Aesthetics and functionality are seamlessly weaved into sustainable building practices as showcased by Thinkphi’s solar panel-equipped outdoor umbrellas.

    Making innovation in green buildings and energy efficiency the gold standard

    Visitors at BEX and MCE Asia 2018 are getting a first look at several innovations to be launched at the events. From industrial applications to commercial buildings and even homes, over 400 exhibitors from 31 countries will provide a comprehensive look into innovations that are continuously advancing the building sector.

    Delta Technology is introducing the Insulated Fire Rated Curtain (IFRC), a failsafe double layer curtain that can seal off even the toughest fire outbreaks. Providing up to four hours of fire integrity and insulation, the curtain could potentially save lives in industrial emergencies.

    Advancing its ‘Quality Air for Life’ message, Panasonic is showcasing the latest integrated air solutions, which combines air-conditioning and ventilation to improve overall indoor air quality, an important but often overlooked aspect of sustainable living.

    To improve hygiene and enhance convenience for users, Dyson’s Airblade Wash+Dry combines a tap and hand dryer. The smart innovation saves space in the washroom while reducing the problem of water dripping on the floor as users move from a handwashing area to a separate hand drying station.

    In the home setting, Kruger’s Secomat dehumidifiers help enhance indoor air quality in living spaces by maintaining a constant 40 to 60 per cent relative humidity. In spaces with limited air circulation such as basements and storage rooms, dehumidifiers help to inhibit the growth of mould and bacteria, brought about by the region’s humid and tropical climate.
