Material driven design (MDD): A method to design for material experiences | IRIS Politecnico di Milano
Materials research constantly offers novel materials as better alternatives to convention. Functional aptness is taken for granted at the first commercial launch of a new material. Nevertheless, this alone may not be enough for its commercial success and widespread use. The 'material' should also elicit meaningful user experiences in and beyond its utilitarian assessment. This requires qualifying the material not only for what it is, but also for what it does, what it expresses to us, what it elicits from us, and what it makes us do. In search of a proper application through such an understanding, material scientists and industries have reached out to designers to guide the development of materials by experiential goals. However, how to design for experiences with and for a material at hand has been poorly addressed to date. In this article, we propose a method, Material Driven Design (MDD), to facilitate designing for material experiences. After explaining the theoretical foundation of the method, an illustrative case is presented-where 'coffee waste' is the subject of a design effort to conceive a new product concept. Finally, possible research directions are addressed to bring new insights to the effective application of the MDD method to diverse projects.

Innovation Award of Kering x Plug and Play
About:
"The Kering Sustainable Innovation Award is dedicated to accelerating sustainable innovation in the Luxury and fashion sectors in China. Inspired by Kering’s motto Crafting Tomorrow’s Luxury, Kering initiated this program – powered by its partner, Silicon Valley-originated VC Plug and Play – to identify promising change-making startups and technologies in Greater China.
[...]
in order to identify innovative solutions along the entire apparel value chain, from alternative raw materials to circular technologies to extend product life. From biodegradable glitter and fabrics made from algae to new ecological dyeing processes and breakthrough technologies for clothing recycling today Kering has given support to over 50 start-ups who have graduated from the Fashion for Good-Plug and Play Accelerator."

Focus:

1. Alternative raw materials: Solutions that could modernize or be replacements for leather, silk, other natural fibers, etc. Focus areas such as biotech solutions, bio-based plastics, new fibers, regenerative agriculture, etc.

2. Supply chain: Decreasing impacts in the supply chain through technologies that will reduce water, waste and chemical usage and improve production and energy efficiency. For example, low impact dyeing, new processes to customise or automate cut-make-trim, and solutions enabling supply chain traceability.

3. Retail & Use: Solutions that reduce the environmental impacts of retail processes. For example, efficient packaging, retail store energy management, etc. Also, new ways to increase the awareness of sustainable fashion among consumers and make this lifestyle more influential in the Chinese market. For example, omni-channel communication, social marketing, building brand transparency, etc. Also focusing on solutions to improve livelihoods for people working along the supply chain.

4. Circular economy: Transforming materials waste into new products and extending the lifecycle of existing products are powerful ways to reduce impact. For example, chemical recycling, mechanical recycling, repurposing and upcycling, re-commerce platforms, etc.

[...]

The jury is composed of individuals with extensive knowledge of the fashion, Luxury, entrepreneurship, sustainability and innovation fields. This jury includes Jinqing Cai, President of Kering Greater China; Burak Cakmak, Dean of Fashion at Parsons School of Design; Hung Huang, a writer and top media influencer; Ma Jun, Founding Director of the Institute of Public & Environmental Affairs; Katrin Ley, Managing Director of Fashion for Good; Susan Rockefeller, a well-known figure in the world of art, philanthropy and sustainability; Wang Shi, an entrepreneur focused on green construction, forest conservation, biodiversity, and climate change; Jane Zhen Wang, President of Erdos Cashmere Group; Guoxin Yin, Chairman of Chenfeng Group.

Launched together with Plug and Play on December 7th, 2018 in Beijing with Peter Xu, Executive Director and CEO of Plug and Play China. Other participants such as Carol Chyau, CEO of Shokay or Shaway Yeh, Founder of YehYehYeh.

Recycling Technologies
About:
"Developed a machine, the RT7000, to recycle plastics in a more commercially attractive way. RT7000 turns plastic waste into a product they call Plaxx®, for use in processes for making new plastic and wax products."

Can recycle of up to 90% of residual plastics with these five modules (each fitting into a ship container):

Module 1: Thermal Cracker
A fluidised bed containing of hot thermo-granules continuously circulating from/to the Regenerator
Heat transferred into the plastic cracks long-chain molecules into shorter-chain hydrocarbons
Hydrocarbon vapour is treated to remove solids and refined to remove unwanted chemicals
Controlling the temperature and flow allows different volumes of individual Plaxx fractions to be produced.

Module 2: Regenerator
Light hydrocarbon gas (e.g. methane, ethane) from the distillation modules arrives into the Regenerator
Used as a fuel to heat the thermo-granules to 850-900°C for circulation back to the Thermal Cracker.

Module 3: Plaxx Distillation
Hydrocarbon vapour from the Thermal Cracker is condensed into Plaxx and discharged to storage.

Module 4: Light Gas Distillation
Light hydrocarbon gas is distilled and fed into the Regenerator.

Module 5: Flue Gas Treatment
Any remaining gas in the Regenerator is passed into the Flue Gas Treatment module for clean-up already available on site.

Plaxx is a ultra low sulphur oil, cut into four fractions (Petrochemical Feedstock, Low Sulphur Fuel Oils, Petroleum Waxes) which have applications in multiple industrial sectors and can be sold individually.

Note from industry insider:
There are quite a few companies doing it (esp. the USA over many years) but scaling has been an issue. The whole case effectively is an undertaking of doing less bad - its end of pipe is not really getting to the root of the problem. Ergo: It's better than doing nothing.

FlashMapper Tutorials WebGL Terrain
This tutorial will walk through creating a 3D terrain from digital elevation data. In WebGL there are a few different ways to do this. Here are some other tutorials that might work better if you have access to some of these outside resources.
