The building industry produces a significant volume of waste which, in turn, creates a sizeable environmental impact. EU-funded research has developed know-how and tools to help the construction sector embrace the circular economy and increase the reuse, reconfiguration and recycling of products, materials, components and buildings.

Photo of article La robotica aiuta le piante a prosperare negli ambienti urbani

Le città affollate non sono esattamente luoghi ottimali per lo sviluppo delle piante. Tuttavia, un team di ricercatori finanziato dall’UE usa la robotica per far crescere le piante nelle configurazioni innaturali richieste dagli ambienti urbani. Le città potrebbero presto beneficiare di una robusta infrastruttura verde impiegata per ogni cosa, dalla produzione alimentare al controllo climatico.

Zatłoczone miasta nie kojarzą się z ostoją dzikiej przyrody. Jednak zespół finansowanego przez UE projektu postanowił sięgnąć po rozwiązania z zakresu robotyki, żeby pomóc roślinom osiągać nienaturalne kształty, rozmiary i formy, które pozwolą im idealnie przystosować się do życia w środowisku miejskim. Może to oznaczać, że już wkrótce będziemy mogli zmieniać nasze miasta dzięki zielonej infrastrukturze wykorzystywanej do różnych celów: od produkcji żywności po kontrolowanie klimatu.

Photo of article La robotique au service de la croissance des plantes dans les environnements urbains

Les villes surpeuplées ne sont pas un environnement optimal pour la croissance des plantes. Une équipe de chercheurs financés par l’UE a recours à la robotique pour aider les plantes à prendre les tailles et configurations qu’exigent les milieux urbains. Ainsi, les villes pourraient bientôt bénéficier d’une infrastructure verte utilisée pour tout de la production alimentaire au contrôle du climat.

Photo of article Robótica para ayudar a las plantas a proliferar en entornos urbanos

Las ciudades abarrotadas no son el mejor lugar para que proliferen las plantas. Un equipo de investigadores financiados con fondos europeos emplea la robótica para que las plantas adapten automáticamente su morfología a los entornos urbanos. Así las ciudades podrían beneficiarse pronto de una infraestructura verde y robusta multiuso: desde la producción de alimentos hasta el control climático.

Photo of article Robotics to help plants thrive in urban environments

Crowded cities aren't exactly optimal environments for plants to thrive. However, a team of EU-funded researchers is using robotics to help plants automatically grow into the unnatural shapes, sizes, and configurations that urban environments demand. As a result, cities could soon benefit from a robust green infrastructure used for everything from food production to climate control.

Photo of article Roboter helfen Pflanzen, in urbanen Räumen zu gedeihen

Überfüllte Städte sind nicht gerade die ideale Umgebung für ein gutes Gedeihen von Pflanzen. Ein EU-finanziertes Forschungsteam lenkt mithilfe von Robotik das Wachstum von Pflanzen in die unnatürlichen Formen, Größen und Ausrichtungen, die urbane Räume erfordern. So könnten Städte bald von einer soliden grünen, vielseitig nutzbaren, Infrastruktur profitieren, die von der Lebensmittelproduktion bis hin zur Klimaregulierung reicht.

Photo of article New crop to provide bio-based products from poorest soils

By adapting the Andean lupin to grow as a biomass crop in Europe's poorest soils, the goal of the EU-and industry-funded LIBBIO project is to supply a range of products to the food, animal feed and cosmetics industries.
