The mountain chalet is located at the altitude of 1000 meters above sea level and it contains two residential units. The building responds to the local construction traditions whilst meeting the standards of 21st-century ways of family life. It provides adequate living comfort while being respectful to the mountain settlement with a unique surrounding landscape. The interior arrangement is based on the traditional principle of transversal separation applied to a building typology with two mirrored and separate residential units.Save this picture!© Tomáš RaslSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Tomáš RaslEach unit has its own front and back door, a communal space on the ground floor, and a bedroom in the attic. The shared facilities include a basement with a technical space, a ground floor sauna and a multiuse entrance vestibule and a front porch.Save this picture!© Tomáš RaslThe concrete basement creates a solid base for the upper wooden CLT panel structure combined with a timber joist ceiling and attic structure. The advantage of the used construction is its stability, eco-friendly performance, and quick assembly. The facade consists of traditional wooden cladding with a vertical cover molding. The roofing is natural slate, and the base of the house is a massive granite plinth for weather protection.Save this picture!© Tomáš RaslWithin the interior living space, there are standalone exposed concrete “bunkers” that contain sanitary facilities. Together with the staircase cores, they perform structural and microclimatic functions. The inner CLT panel surfaces are largely treated with white-transparent oil colour to obtain a visually smooth finish.Save this picture!© Tomáš RaslProject gallerySee allShow lessShaping Soundscapes: Multi Scales Design GuidelineArticlesZaha Hadid Architects’ Opus Through the Lens of Laurian GhinitoiuArticles Share Area:  462 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” Michal Fišer, Tomáš Zdvihal Architects: triarchitekti Area Area of this architecture project 2018 Save this picture!© Tomáš Rasl+ 25Curated by Paula Pintos Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/939084/mountain-chalet-in-the-sumava-national-park-triarchitekti Clipboard Photographs:  Tomáš Rasl Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Photographs CopyHouses•Czech Republic Year:  ArchDaily Mountain Chalet in the Šumava National Park / triarchitekti “COPY” Houses Czech Republic Lead Architects: CopyAbout this officetriarchitektiOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookCzech RepublicPublished on May 10, 2020Cite: “Mountain Chalet in the Šumava National Park / triarchitekti” 10 May 2020.

Advanced Biofuel Pathway for Camelina Approved

first_img SHARE Advanced Biofuel Pathway for Camelina Approved The Environmental Protection Agency has finalized its rule approving camelina oil as a new low-carbon feedstock under the Renewable Fuel Standard. With camelina oil added to the growing list of biodiesel feedstocks that meet the EPA’s standards for advanced biofuel – National Biodiesel Board Vice President of Federal Affairs Anne Steckel says the decision provides another option for producing sustainable, domestic biodiesel that displaces imported oil. She says that’s important for our energy security, our economy and for addressing climate change.The RFS requires a 50-percent greenhouse-gas emissions reduction for qualifying biomass-based diesel or advanced biofuel. A comprehensive evaluation of the lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions of the renewable fuel as compared to the lifecycle emissions of the gasoline or diesel fuel that it replaces is required to determine if a fuel pathway meets that threshold. A handful of biodiesel feedstocks qualify as advanced under the program – including recycled cooking oil, soybean oil and animal fats.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Feb 26, 2013 Home Energy Advanced Biofuel Pathway for Camelina Approved Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleHearing on Mid-Level Ethanol Blends Doesn’t Include Ethanol IndustryNext articleBudget Views and Estimates Letter Adopted by House Ag Committee Andy Eubanklast_img read more

Dolores Guadalupe García Escamilla, of Estéreo 91 XHNOE radio, died from her injuries on 16 April after a being shot 11 days earlier.”The climate of terror and impunity for which journalists pay the price in Mexico’s northern states is reaching alarming and unacceptable proportions”, said Reporters Without Borders.”Once again we call for a serious investigation to unmask not only the killers but those who order these repeated bombings against the press. We also hope that the special prosecutor’s office, set up at a federal level, will support the judicial process”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said.Natividad’s van was parked in front of his home a few streets from the newspaper’s offices when the interior was completely wrecked by a crude bomb. Police found a Coca-Cola bottle and a petrol-soaked cloth inside the vehicle. “I have no enemies or fight with anyone. I am afraid because I don’t know where the threat could come from”, the editor told Reporters Without Borders. Natividad also said he had not received any warning, although a colleague specialised in criminal cases had been sent threats that were intercepted by the police. Dolores Guadalupe García Escamilla had also been threatened before being attacked.An article in Primera Hora about drug-traffickers might have been behind the attack on Natividad but he pointed out, “This case goes back eight months and it was reported on by all the media, based on information provided by the authorities.”Witnesses said they saw a man of around 1.70m in height wearing a striped shirt fleeing the scene after the explosion.

Australian DoD Hands Over Perth Wave Energy Project’s Onshore Site to Carnegie

The system can also be used for co-production of zero-emission electricity and freshwater.The Perth Wave Energy Project, including the addition of desalination, is supported by a total of $19million in grant funding from the Australian Federal Government’s Emerging Renewables Program, the Clean Technology Innovation Program and the Western Australian State Government’s Low Emissions Energy Development fund.Completion of the construction phase is anticipated to occur in September 2013 with commissioning of the project forecasted for the first quarter of 2014.[mappress]Press Release, July 12, 2013; Image: Australian Navy View post tag: project Equipment & technology View post tag: wavelast_img read more

Vectren Finalizes Plan For Beneficial Reuse For Coal Ash Pond Excavation And Recycling

first_img Vectren, a CenterPoint Energy company, today announced as part of its ongoing sustainability efforts, ponded coal ash from its southwestern Indiana generating station, A.B. Brown, will be excavated and recycled for beneficial reuse. This partnership is a result of the federally mandated Coal Combustion Residuals Rule (CCR) requiring certain compliance measures for the long-term closure plans of coal ash ponds.This week, Vectren filed an application with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC) to recover the costs associated with the ash pond remediation. The company will soon begin construction of the infrastructure needed to transport the coal ash to the Ohio River for transport by the manufacturer that will reuse the ash. The material that can be beneficially reused will be removed from the site, thereby greatly reducing future cost and environmental risk compared to alternatives that would leave all the ash on Vectren’s property.“This partnership with the manufacturer is an ideal solution – the material is removed from the environment, it will be used for beneficial purposes, and the cost to customers will be less than other viable compliance options,” said Lynnae Wilson, chief business officer, Indiana Electric. “Vectren’s decision to recycle the ponded coal ash reduces the impact on the environment and allows for the safe clean closure of the A.B. Brown coal ash pond.”Vectren signed a multi-year agreement for the excavation, conversion and recycling of up to six million tons of ponded ash, a by-product of coal-fired generation, beginning in 2021. Since 2009, Vectren has been shipping dry fly ash from A.B. Brown, F.B. Culley and Warrick coal plants for use as a raw material in cement manufacturing. Forward Looking StatementThis news release includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
