It’s not a dream anymore to actually drive the cleanest car in the world. Zero pollution vehicle is going to be born, the Compressed Air Vehicle is the first affordable and accessible clean car. It brings us our dream: to drive pollution-free and free of fuel dependency. Since the Compressed Air Vehicle is running exclusively on compressed air, it emits only air – zero pollution. The air expelled from the tail pipe is actually cleaner than the air used to fill the tank. This is because before compression, the air is run through carbon filters to eliminate dirt, dust, humidity, and other urban Air impurities that could hamper the engine’s performance. At speeds over 35mph the Compressed Air Vehicle uses small amounts of fuel either gasoline, propane, ethanol or bio fuels to heat air inside a heating chamber called the as it enters the engine. This process produces emissions of only 0.141lbs of CO2 per mile. That is up to 4 times less than the average vehicle and more than two times less than the cleanest vehicle available today.

Designed by Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill, this tower called “Clean Technology Tower” would be constructed in Chicago as highly efficient building. The wind turbines will be placed at the corners of the building, to make sure it captures the wind at its highest velocity as it accelerates around the tower. If you have heard about recently featured solar Masdar Headquarters, that building also designed by the same firm who will build this clean technology tower. At the apex, where wind speeds are at a maximum, a domed double roof cavity directs the wind towards an array of wind turbines. The negative pressure created by the turbines will be used to ventilate interior spaces. The dome itself is shaded by solar cells that capture the southern sun.
Can you see yourself live in this cardboard house in the future ? Actually if you think about it, this is not so bad, this cardboard is very strong, waterproof, and easy to build (in fact you can build it today and live inside it tomorrow). The Cardboard House represents the reduction of technology and the simplification of needs. By demonstrating that they are able to recycle 100% of the building components at extremely low cost, the Cardboard House is a direct challenge to the housing industry to reduce housing and environmental costs.
The future expects us to be more eco friendly or we doom. All the material in the Cardboard House is recycled, and recyclable, making it an excellent environmentally sustainable option for housing. The Carboard House is made of recycled carboard supplied by Visy Industries. This is completed with a waterproof roof made from HDPE plastic, which also forms the material of the flexible under-floor water tanks and the novel kitchen and bathroom ‘pods’.

Another iconic building is going to be built in Malaysia. This is not surprising, since they do have two of the tallest buildings in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers. The design of Precinct4 is very unique, based on traditional Islamic architecture, marine-inspired structures, and radiating block of bioclimatic architecture.
The architect’s goal (Hijjas Kasturi Associates, Malaysian architects) was to design buildings that tell of its place of origin which is culturally modern, Islamic and tropical in nature. While the designers goal (Studio Nicoletti Associati) was to provide a model for sustainable residential design that was inspired by the city’s unique landscape which includes an expansive artificial lake. The biggest inspiration came from the sea and the entire development resembles a fleet of ships.
It is also said that the buildings will source from alternative energy and are expected to produce 50% less CO2 emissions than similar residential projects.
This USB device is very eco friendly by using bamboo as its material. Bamboo itself is a fast growing resource, which make it an ideal natural resource to create your daily gadgets because you don’t do any harm by taking away greenery from it. Designed by Gernot Oberfell, this Bambus flash drive is having capacity of 2GB, great green gadget concept.

The idea behind this concept is to make user waste water that coming out of your washing machine. We do use around 150 litres of water for a washing machine, after that … why don’t we use it again before the water finally go down the drain ? “WashUp” is integrating washing machine with toilet, which mean, it can store wasted water in the toilette-flush tank for us to use when flushing. This also can be a solution for small living space, combine your washing machine and your toilet in the bathroom

There’s only one certainty in life: we will all die someday. In our society there’s a trend towards cremation. Cremation however demands for specific solutions. Therefor we’ve created a cremation coffin with integrated urn in order to appeal to the specific functional needs and emotional circumstances of a cremation funeral.
Most coffins on the market are too expensive for cremation and aren’t made for burning. Our cremation coffin however is fully executed in ecological materials (corrugated board, papier-much and wood), is budget-friendly and easy burnable. As a result, the cremation process itself goes faster having both an economical as well as an ecological benefit.
On top of the coffin there’s a memory capsule. The urn is executed in stainless steel and has the shape of a sandglass of Time heals all wounds. The urn withstands the cremation process during which it will be coloured through the heat, to give it a personal patina.
