Our goal Adapting technologies for a waste free environment
Survey Results A total of 20 People studying in the hostels were polled regarding their habits and lifestyles
The many uses of the kitchen sink Washing Food Others Brushing TeethWashing Cutleries NoYes 37% 31% 18% 14% 80% 20% Frequency of Bathroom sink Usage
Estimated amounts of Organic Waste 0% 20% 10%More than 20% 25% 35% 5% 35% Sleeping With Aircon 2 Times More Than 3 3 Times 65%15% 20%
Temperature Settings 21 Degrees 23 Degrees More Than 25 Degrees 24 Degrees 19% 25% 50% 6%
What we Learnt Average of 12.4 kw/day of air con usage in homes. (Panasonic CS-S12NKZW Econavi). 48 liters of grey water being wasted per day per apartment.. (based on the 2 liter flow rate provided by PUB.) In all applications, there will always be a percentage of energy that is always wasted. We decided against focusing our project on changing peoples habits but rather adapting technologies to reduce wastage from everyday habits or lifestyle. Adapting Technologies
Areas identified Waste FoodWaste Heat Waste Water
Microturbines Rainwater falls through pipes, turning microturbines in the process As it flows downwards due to gravity, it will turn turbines to generate electricity to power lights. Sledges to be inserted on HDB walls to collect rainwater which will drip into the pipe. After which this water would flow into a storage container to be used for ie drip water irrigation.
Organic Food Waste Catalytic Decomposition to produce methane Implemented in the kitchen Will be roughly the size of a dustbin. When connected to the gas stove, it could be used for cooking purposes, eliminating the need for electricity. Organic methane Biofuel Digester Students will throw their waste after eating
Timeline Brainstorming to come up with viable ideas Prototyping Creating site models and prototypes Experimentation Interacting with our prototypes and observations. Feedback Having people use them and getting back feedback for the design of our products Improvisation Looking at the flaws of our design and coming up with ways to improve them
Checklist to combine everything for a HDB flat What are some of the parts in each idea that is compatible with one another? How would electricity be harnessed from the biogas generators? What are the materials we can use to make it as cost efficient as possible? What are the different ways in which we can channel the generated energy?
