Now That’s Cool Featuring: LifeMade
Today, keeping things cool has never been more important- from food & drink- to critical medical supplies, the traditional foam cooler has been the standard for decades. Although until now, you’d have to sacrifice performance to achieve sustainability- but today, that’s no longer the case. Thanks to biodegradable foam technology, one company has developed a game-changing solution. A product that not only takes less energy to produce- but also ends up degrading and completely going away in a landfill in a matter of weeks. Now that’s Cool!
Water - The Backbone of Civilization Featuring: Northwest Pipe Company
Nowadays the demand for water has never been more critical. As new population centers rise, the demand for reliable water sources also surges… but for decades there has been a substantial underinvestment in pipelines and needed water infrastructure. Much of our drinking water infrastructure in the U.S. was built in the mid-20th century with an expected lifespan of 75 to 100 years and will take an estimated 200 years to replace that aging system. Fortunately, a host of huge water-supply projects are currently underway that are safeguarding the transportation of safe water supply in North America. One company is bringing fresh ideas to a timeless industry, including seismic resilient joints for steel water pipe designed to endure a seismic event, like an earthquake.
A Desert Oasis – The Next Generation of Farming Featuring: iwi
Our global population is growing by leaps and bounds- predicted to hit 10 BILLION people by the year 2050. This is placing a huge strain on our agricultural land resources to produce food as well as our freshwater and ocean resources. To meet the demands that a new population will have we’re going to need novel agricultural practices to provide new food sources that don’t compete with arable land that’s already overstretched, and with freshwater sources that are also scarce. One of the answers may lie in the middle of the hot, dry desert of New Mexico, where a whole new way to farm non-arable land has been re-invented.
A Look into the Future of Green Mobility and Zero Emissions Featuring: Toyota Motors North America
One of the new engine technologies for zero emissions is HYDROGEN fuel cells- capable of creating electricity to power vehicles, leaving WATER as its only emission. As the largest container port in the Western Hemisphere, the Port of Los Angeles set a goal of zero-emission by year 2030 for any equipment that handles cargo and leads the way in what future GREEN MOBILITY will look like for our country when it comes to zero-emission cars, trucks- and yes- even boats. The research to create a zero-emissions world through hydrogen cell research has been going on for decades at Toyota’s R& D Center in Gardena, California, and is why the Port has partnered with Toyota to start testing that same hydrogen fuel cell technology in heavy duty semi-trucks.
