On the occasion of the last edition of the Green Concept Award, a very interesting project was presented to the public. Let's talk about C-Ecology, an ecosystem 3D printed which aims to revitalize the rivers of cities.
Before concentrating on the description of the project, let's dedicate a few lines to the explanation of the "Green Concept" Award. This recognition is awarded by the organization Green Future Club, with the aim of rewarding those who demonstrate that they have interesting ideas in favor of environmental sustainability. In particular, the call is aimed above all at young designers and students, as well as all new start-ups. The Green Club focuses on young minds, who more than once have shown themselves capable and attentive to environmental problems.
A 3D printed ecosystem to help the environment
C-Ecology is a project conceived by the students of the University of tunghai in Taiwan.
The final product relies on an in ceramic 3D printed, able to adapt to rivers of various sizes. It serves the function of a new "coral reef", offering aquatic organisms new shelters.
Through these innovative 3D printed structures, C-ecology will create a new ecosystem of wetlands within rivers.
Uber alles 3D printing
3D printing allows you to easily choose dimensions and depths of the object, adapting the project to all rivers. The ceramic modules are environmentally friendly, so as not to interfere with life in the waters.
They are then positioned on the surface of the water to provide nutrients, creating an artificial barrier that can accommodate all organisms.
According l 'Tunghai University, the project could help improve the ecosystem in rivers in all cities. By modifying certain details, this 3D printed system could easily adapt to rivers of any region.
At the moment, C-ecology has been nominated among the top 8 entries awarded at the Green Concept Award 2022. The official winner will be announced today, February 25, 2022.
