      • AECOM’s Fifth Urban SOS Student Competition Seeks Designs for “New Industry”


        from 3BL Media / Added

        NEW YORK, April 17, 2014 /3BL Media/ - AECOM has launched “Urban SOS: Towards a new industry,” its fifth Urban SOS student competition. Open to students at undergraduate and graduate levels around the world, this year’s competition seeks interdisciplinary design responses that generate economic development and improve urban conditions at sites of derelict industrial infrastructure. For complete submission requirements, see aecom.com/urbansos. Three finalist teams selected by an internal AECOM jury will present their schemes at the Center for Architecture in New York on Sept. 4, when a jury of renowned industry figures and AECOM leaders will select the winning entry. To help implement the winning scheme, AECOM will provide up to US$25,000 of cash and in-kind staff time to further develop the project, and the judges will also be given a total of US$15,000 to distribute as they see fit. “In the fifth Urban SOS competition, we look forward to engaging with the future leaders of our industry as part of our wider effort to improve cities,” said Bill Hanway, executive vice president, Buildings + Places, AECOM. “Through the student program, we advance the kind of approach that we believe is essential to the future health of cities — multiple disciplines collaborating to reshape the aesthetic, technical, social, economic, and ecological functions of places. These places can then have a positive ripple effect on their surrounding cities.” The program is open to students in a wide array of built environment fields — including architecture, landscape architecture, civil engineering, city planning, urban design, urban studies, environmental studies, economics, geography, and related fields — and students are encouraged to build cross-disciplinary teams to meet the competition’s requirement for integrated design responses. In related news, the winning submission to the 2011 “Urban SOS: Water” competition, titled “Firm Foundation,” has been successfully implemented. Learn more about it from a student team member on AECOM’s Connected Cities blog.

            Greenway Grameen Infra has taken the 'earthen chulah' ubiquitous across rural homes in India and a major health hazard for women and families, and tranformed it into a more eco-friendly stove, without forcing any change in user behaviour. Greenway Grameen breaks even as a business this year and has demonstrated how to co-create products with the users and build ideas that don't challenge deep set behaviours and patterns - enabling rapid adoption. Neha & Ankit, co-founders of Greenway Grameen share with us HOW they have managed to do this.

            • Algae to Fuel

              Where will the next generation of motor fuels come from? It could be as close as your fish tank - or a nearby pond. In "Algae to Fuel," Chief Correspondent Tyler Suiters heads to a place where tourists focus on America's past, and students look to the future. 
In Colonial Williamsburg, students at the College of William & Mary are harvesting algae, or pond scum, for conversion into fuel. Algae be may unsightly in home aquariums, but in the wild, they're actually quite efficient at removing nutrients that pollute the water and metabolizing them as as oil. Tyler talks to William & Mary students, professors and a government official to learn how the program got started and where it's headed. The project has gotten attention not only from the U.S. Department of Energy, but from Norwegian energy firm Statoil. Those funding streams have helped the project take off. Now researchers are trying to determine how to develop it on a scale that could put a dent in America's petroleum use.

              • Algae to Fuel Research at the College of William & Mary

                Karl Kuschner of the College of William & Mary, who leads the school's algal fuel research project, explains how the program got its start and the focus of its research. Blackrock Energy, a local firm in the Williamsburg, Va., area, wanted to start an algae research program, so it started a consortium of companies that were interested, and also secured funding from the Norwegian energy company Statoil. They teamed with several other universities that are interested in the same research, and also with the Smithsonian Institution. Kuschner says as a neighbor of the Chesapeake Bay, William & Mary is interested in the research because it is environmentally friendly and because algae have a carbon-neutral fuel cycle. That helps the bay, because the algae can use nutrients that are considered pollution in the bay's ecosystem. Statoil funded the project for its first year and then renewed for another years starting in May of 2010. Although there are some 100 universities conducting algal research, Kuschner does not feel there is so much competition that the schools won't share information. He says his program's advantage is that it works with wild algae, not a certain species in a bioreactor. He says the process he's using does not use any energy, aside from the energy required to harvest the algae. Kuschner believes the technology is scalable, but in order to go to a commercial scale, it would probably have to use algae grown in the ocean, which can be a harsh, unpredictable environment. That's an engineering problem that other researchers are trying to solve. His team is solving the scientific problems of scaling, such as what types of nutrients, or how much water or carbon-dioxide is needed as the scale gets larger.

                      The EcoCom SIG Presents... A Showcase of San Diego Clean Technology Companies The CommNexus EcoCom SIG has organized an ensemble of 10 local and innovative companies where cleantech plays a major role in their business. These companies are putting the spotlight on diverse uses of technologies that span the gamut from battery free energy storage using ultracapacitors, satellite imaging for remotely controlling irrigation, low power chip design and wireless technology protocols for bidirectional communication with the grid. Other companies use technology that include LED lighting, giving old electronics a second act in markets where they can be reused, software and hardware that better orchestrate how energy resources are directed. Efficiency is making headlines and attracting venture capital focusing on technology applications. This advances better use of information, better designs that use less energy, with less environmental impact creating the cleanest energy resource…energy that is not used. This event will begin with a State of the San Diego Clean Tech Industry address by James Waring, Co-Founder & Chairman, CleanTECH San Diego. The event will then be followed by the showcase companies who will entertain the audience with their stories on what set the stage for how their products and services made their entrance onto the cleantech scene. Following the presentations, the companies will then showcase their business products and services in a tradeshow format allowing attendees to interact with each company. They are looking to dialogue with strategic partners, smart capital and potential consumers of their product.
