Biomimicry: Nature as Model, Measure, and Mentor

Date: Thursday, August 27, 2009
Time: 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM (Pacific Standard Time)

Description:

Nature as model.  Biomimicry is a new science that studies Nature’s models and then imitates or takes inspiration from these designs and processes to solve human problems.

Nature as measure.  Biomimicry uses an ecological standard to evaluate the “rightness” of our innovations.

Nature as mentor.  Biomimicry is a new way of viewing and valuing Nature.

Biomimicry is an approach that looks to nature for effective ways to look at a system in a holistic fashion.  This overview will provide some examples of how some of nature’s designs can be imitated in our products and processes to achieve optimum efficiency, and in a sustainable way.  In addition, insight will be given to the Biomimicry Guild’s Functional Taxonomy, which is an organized collection of functions that covers everything that life does and what we want a design to achieve.  Furthermore, this presentation will showcase how using biomimicry methodologies and practices can be applied and used by individuals in a variety of settings, including, but not limited to, regulatory and non-regulatory agencies, non profits, business assistance programs, private companies, universities, etc.

You’ll hear about emerging topics in Biomimicry and how this science is being used by a wide range of sectors as they seek out ways to become more sustainable.

You’ll learn about the many businesses and organizations that have used biomimicry tools to effectively translate the wisdom of our teacher – the organisms and ecosystems of the natural world – into designs and systems that are both innovative and sustainable. Some of the current topics you’ll hear about include:

Nature-based building development

  • Site Design
  • Manufacturing
  • Education
  • Policy development

 

PRESENTER: Marie B. Zanowick, Environmental Engineer, EPA Region 8 Pollution Prevention and Toxics Unit and current student in the Biomimicry 2 Year Certificate Program through the Biomimicry Institute and the Biomimicry Guild.

HOSTED BY: The Western Sustainability & Pollution Prevention Network (WSPPN) and the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable’s (NPPR) Sustainability Workgroup.

Overview of the P2 GHG Calculator and Cost Savings Calculator

GHG Calculator:

EPA’s Pollution Prevention Program (P2) developed a GHG Calculator tool to help quantify the linkages between P2 activities/strategies and GHG reductions.  The GHG calculator was designed to assist P2 managers, staff, and grantees in calculating GHG reductions from established conversion factors in the following categories:

  • Electricity Conservation (GHG reductions from electricity conversation or reduced use of energy)
  • Green Energy (GHG reductions from switching to greener or renewable energy sources)
  • Fuel Substitution (GHG reductions from reduced fuel use, substitution to greener fuels)
  • Greening Chemistry (GHG reductions from reduced use of GWP chemicals)
  • Water Conservation (GHG reductions from reduced water use)
  • Materials Management (GHG reductions from green manufacturing processes and waste management scenarios)
  • Cross Reference to other applicable tools (A reference table that provides end users an overview of applicable GHG tools and models)

The 1st presentation will provide an overview of the tool and examples of how specific P2 activities directly contribute to GHG reductions.
 

P2 Cost Calculator:

The P2 Results Database, a web-based tool, designed to collect and quantify P2 progress related to air, water, waste and energy reductions from non-profits, local, state, and federal entities plays a significant
role in demonstrating P2 benefits on a regional and national level.  A critical part of the P2 Results Database is documenting cost savings that result from government, businesses and facilities implementing P2 activities. This database uses a P2 cost calculator to quantify cost savings based on established methodologies and sound research.   Over the last several months, The Pollution Prevention Program worked to update and redesign the tool to enhance functionality and better document cost benefits over time.  

The 2nd presentation will also present an overview of the P2 Cost Calculator tool.

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Draft Pollution Prevention Program Strategic Plan

Description: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Pollution Prevention (P2) Program would like to invite representatives from local, state and tribal pollution prevention programs (and others) in the P2 community to a webinar on its draft five-year strategic plan.  The U.S. EPA Pollution Prevention Program’s draft strategic plan identifies a number of areas where enhanced collaboration and coordination among federal, state, tribal, and local partners would be beneficial.  

Examples include:  increasing policy and programmatic dialogue on sustainability, climate change, and other issues; continuing to work together to address regulatory barriers to P2; and developing unified national approaches to promote further environmental progress in specific sectors.  This webinar will give background information on the draft strategic plan and provide an opportunity to discuss areas of synergy with state and tribal P2 program priorities.

Making a Difference for the Planet and Your Bottom Line with U.S. EPA Climate Partnership Programs

Many of us may have heard of EPA’s Climate Partnership Programs such as Energy Star (there are literally dozens of them). But do you really know what they are? How they work? Whom they serve? As a technical assistance provider (TAP), do you ever promote these programs when you come in contact with businesses in your area? If not, then this webinar is for you. The purpose of this webinar is to show how EPA Climate Partnership Programs can help you assist businesses to reduce GHGs, and other forms of waste, save money and energy.

Most programs offer technical assistance, professional networking, and public recognition. Many offer financial and environmental analysis tools, training, seminars, guidebooks, toolkits, and environmental performance benchmarking. Others help businesses identify potential buyers and sellers of environmentally superior products and connect them to environmental financing opportunities. Learn how Energy Star, WaterSense, Green Power and Wastewise can help you with your service delivery.

Date: January 22, 2009 (Thursday)
Time: 11:00 am – 12:30 pm (Pacific Standard Time); 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm(Eastern Standard Time)
