Me and my friends from M.Sc. Architecture & Environmental Design recently went on an amazing excursion to Centre for Alternative Technology in Wales. Nature, passive technologies and delicious vegan food! What more do you need!? This is a tour around one of the eco cabins – amenities, how the cabin works, history, energy meters and composting toilet! 💩 Worth watching before your trip to CAT – remember no chemical toiletries allowed on the premises so invest in some natural cosmetics, which are also available in CAT’s store. This is due to the water cleaning system as eco cabins are fully sustainable and off grid. Thanks for watching! ★ https://www.instagram.com/veganarchitecture/

New knowledge and new technology are required to increase the extraction of oil and gas from existing fields in the North Sea. This challenge is now being taken up by a new national research centre: The Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre at DTU. Apart from identifying new technological and conceptual solutions that boost oil and gas extraction, the goal of the research centre is to provide the framework for international research, and to lay the foundations for relevant, research-based study programmes with the potential to support interdisciplinary and interdepartmental research programmes. http://www.oilgas.dtu.dk/english
