Up-and-coming technologies

Technologies still under development

  • Cradle-to-cradle mfg.
  • Radical design
  • Plastic recycling

    • Precious Plastic is a firm that has developed a kit of tools for DIY plastic recycling. They have a shredder, a melter, and some way to mold the molten material into a brick.
  • "Global village construction set" (Open Source Ecology)

    • Open Source Ecology is a set of designs for tools that can be built at the village level. They have been carefully designed so that each tool when built allows the next one to be built. The result (some 50 tools) allows the village to lift itself, as far as it wishes, into a sustainable future.
    • Marcin Jakubowski's wiki page (He created the 'Open Source Ecology' concept.)
  • Green Matters

    • Green Matters.com is a feast of new ideas that are being worked on now: such as bio-Diesel from used coffee grounds, and Kernza (Land Institute's new perennial wheat) as a no-maint road shoulder planting!
