EcoArk Taiwan台灣環生方舟

Taiwan's plastic bottle building -- EcoARK Exhibition Hall.
Not just a bottle picked off the street. Polli-Brick from Hymini is made from recycled PET bottles. The building can be disassembled and then reassembled elsewhere. Looks like that might take a bit of time though as the building is 85 meters long (279 feet).
EcoARK PET bottles to be spread among 100 schools
GREEN USE:The bottles used to build a pavilion at the flora expo will be reused in creative projects to raise environmental awareness among local communities
Staff Writer, with CNA

A total of 1.52 million recycled plastic bottles used to build a pavilion at the Taipei International Flora Expo will be taken apart and sent to elementary schools nationwide to raise environmental awareness, the building’s sponsor said yesterday.

The Far Eastern Group, commissioned by the Taipei City Government to build the EcoARK — a boat-shaped exhibition hall made of PET bottles — said it would work with the Ministry of Education to distribute the bottles to 100 elementary schools for “green use.”

Schools that were damaged by Typhoon Morakot in 2009 will be given priority, group chairman Douglas Hsu (徐旭東) said.

He said all the honeycomb-shaped PET bricks used to build the EcoARK will be reused in creative projects so local communities can join in on the environmentally friendly action.

For instance, he said, the bricks can be reassembled into bus stops, greenhouses, galleries or even sheds for keeping livestock.

“Since the bottles were collected from the public, we think it is best that the materials go back into the hands of the people,” Hsu said.

The group said the inspiration for EcoARK came from the large number of PET bottles recycled in Taiwan every year — about 90,000 tonnes.

EcoARK, also known as the Pavilion of New Fashion, attracted more than 2 million visitors at the expo. It was featured on the National Geographic Channel’s Megastructures, which was aired in 168 countries in 34 languages, with an estimated audience of 370 million.

CAYIN Digital Signage Introduces New Green Era in Pavilion of New Fashion (FE EcoARK)

2010 Taipei International Flora Exposition, certified by the International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH), was held in Taipei, Taiwan from November 6, 2010 to April 25, 2011. The main concept of this exposition was to convey the essence of horticulture, science, and environmental protection, all of which were perfectly accomplished by the FE EcoARK – Pavilion of New Fashion. Designed for a new eco-friendly life, FE EcoARK grabbed worldwide media attention during the construction period and was always packed with people waiting in a long line after its grand opening.

Elaborate the New Green Era via Digital Signage
FE EcoARK, sponsored and operated by the Far Eastern Group, was the world’s first green building made from recycled PET bottles. It was built by 480,000 PET bricks which were reshaped from 1.52 million recycled PET bottles. The whole pavilion included seven areas and each and every detail reflected the idea of creating a fashionable and eco-friendly life via high technology.

In order to let visitors fully understand the design and planning of the unprecedented plastic building, the Far Eastern Group consulted Paoan, CAYIN’s premium partner in Taiwan and installed nine 42” LCD displays and CAYIN digital signage players at the main entrance as the promotional channel. As a result, visitors in the queue could come up with preliminary ideas about the green building and reduce impatience waiting in a long line.

CAYIN’s digital signage solution conveyed the design of this modern-day “Noah’s Ark” with high quality video playback. Visitors were able to learn the whole amazing process including: soliciting 1.52 million discarded PET bottles, grinding the bottles into plastic flakes, molding 480,000 PET bricks, and assembling and constructing the FE EcoARK. This high-tech and eco-friendly journey started from the waiting area at the entrance where green ideas were taking root in people’s minds.

Convey Instant and Fashionable Information

At the Pavilion of New Fashion, FE EcoARK had another mission; to present all kinds of fashion and art. Therefore, EcoARK hosted over 200 fashion exhibitions and artistic events in six months. To present visitors with the creative concepts of each piece of artwork, the organizer deployed CAYIN’s digital signage players in major exhibiting areas. Visitors could appreciate works of art while simultaneously viewing a video on the screen of the designers’ inner world.

Reduce Energy and Operating Cost with CAYIN Digital Signage Solutions
CAYIN’s digital signage solution is equipped with powerful playback and managerial functions, largely reducing the operating cost for FE EcoARK. Administrators can schedule playlist to playback different multimedia content automatically at a designated period of time. Therefore, information can reach visitors both inside and outside the building effectively.

Moreover, CAYIN’s digital signage players can turn on and off remote screens automatically in accordance with the exhibition activities. Volume can also be lowered automatically at night. Judging from the number of visitors, administrators can sit in the office and shut down players immediately to save energy. In addition to high quality presentation and powerful remote management, these environmentally-friendly designs are one of the main reasons why the organizer chooses CAYIN’s digital signage as the information platform in this big exhibition.

During the six-month exposition, CAYIN’s digital signage solution successfully assisted Far East Group in conveying the green ideas to all visitors in FE EcoARK, the world’s first building made from recycled PET bottles. The building was also featured in “Megastructures”, the National Geographic Channel’s popular series, and will be broadcasted in 34 languages to 166 countries around the world.

2010 Taipei International Flora Exposition
The 2010 Taipei International Flora Exposition, authorized by the International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH), was the first international certified standard exposition that Taiwan has ever held. This exposition opened on November 6, 2010 and continued presenting the most spectacular scenery and more than 7000 cultural performances all the way until April 25, 2011. The six-month exposition covered 91.8 hectares of exhibiting areas and was conducted on the riverside and 14 featured parks. The basic design concept of this exposition was based on the symbiosis theory which merges humanity’s basic needs in the desire to pursue happiness and extends the boundary of imagination, thus creating a future full of countless possibilities.

A special thanks to Far Eastern Group who adopted CAYIN’s digital signage solutions in the Pavilion of New Fashion (FE EcoARK), so that CAYIN could be part of this great exposition.

全世界獨一無二,用150萬支PET寶特瓶打造出來的展覽館,將在這次台北花博會亮相。這棟建築物還有個很特別的名字「環生方舟」,雖然還在施工階段,但是負責贊助興建的遠東集團董事長徐旭東今天已經迫不及待地帶媒體參觀內部構造。

台北花博將於11月6日開展,由企業贊助興建的環保展館「環生方舟」在今天搶先亮相。這座以150萬個寶特瓶為建材的展館,長度達130公尺,最高處有9層樓高,從研發到製成,全部都是台灣人的智慧結晶,也可以說是台灣的驕傲。因為這是2010年台北國際花卉博覽會14個展館中,唯一在結束後可以拆除再重組利用的設施。

擁有哈佛大學建築碩士的環生方舟總設計師黃謙智指出,「很輕的房子是不怕地震的,越重的房子越怕地震。」所以它可以抵抗15級強風,以及比921 、四川大地震更大的震度,也就是震度9級的強震,但造價僅要一般鋼骨結構的四分之一,而隔熱效果卻是傳統玻璃帷幕建築的4倍。

打造寶特瓶綠建築的遠東集團負責人徐旭東則表示,台灣每年產生逾24億個廢棄寶特瓶,但回收再利用寶特瓶比例僅4%,其餘的都是垃圾,成為環保一大致命傷。

徐旭東說,兩年前透過旗下通路在全台回收150萬個寶特空瓶,經過清洗、打碎、融化等步驟製成獨特的寶特瓶建材,這次期盼藉花博讓台灣綠建築技術登上世界舞台。

遠東環生方舟緊鄰著2010台北花卉博覽會主展場,就在中山北路與酒泉街交叉口。徐旭東表示,9月起希望民眾帶著好奇、探險的心,一起來「環生方舟」,將環保和希望的種子灑落在世界各處。(新聞來源:東森新聞台記者葉炅龍、蔣紀威)

菜豆

菜豆喜溫暖,不耐高溫和霜凍。菜豆種子發芽的適溫為20-30℃;在40℃以上的高溫和10℃以下的低溫,種子不易發芽。幼苗生長適宜氣溫為18-25℃。花芽分化的適宜氣溫為20-25℃,過高或過低溫度易出現發育不完全的花蕾、落花。

菜豆對光照強度的要求較高。在適宜溫度條件下,光照充足則植株生長健壯,莖的節間短而分枝多,開花結莢比較多,而且有利於根部對磷肥的吸收。當光照強度減弱時,植株易徒長,莖的節間長,分枝少,葉質薄,而且開花結莢數少,易落花落莢。

菜豆根系強大,能耐一定程度乾旱,但喜中度濕潤土壤條件,要求水分供應適中,不耐澇。生長期適宜土壤濕度為田間最大持水量的60%-70%,空氣相對濕度以80%為宜。開花結莢期對水分最敏感,此期土壤乾旱對開花結莢有不良影響,開花數、結莢數及莢內種子數減少。土壤水分過大時,下部葉片黃化,早脫落。空氣濕度過大會引起徒長、結莢不良。

菜豆具有深根性和根瘤菌,對土壤的要求不甚嚴格,但仍以土層深厚肥沃、排水良好的輕砂壤土或粘質壤土為好。土壤過於粘重、低溫、排水和通氣不良則生長不良,炭疽病重。菜豆喜中性至微酸性土壤,適宜的土壤pH為5-7.0,其中以州6.2-6.8最適宜。菜豆最忌連作,生產中應實行2-3年輪作。

菜豆生育過程中,主要吸收鉀和氮較多,還要吸收一定量的磷和鈣,才能良好發育。結莢期吸收磷鉀量較大。磷鉀肥對菜豆植株的生長發育、根瘤菌的發育、花芽分化、開花結莢和種子的發育等均有影響。缺乏磷肥,菜豆嫩莢和種子的品質和產量就會降低。缺鈣,幼葉葉片捲曲,葉緣失綠和生長點死亡。缺硼,則根係不發達,影響根瘤菌固氮,使花和豆莢發育不良。 耐陰半陰(大概3-4小時日照) 應選擇耐陰的蔬菜種植,如萵…

錦鯉養殖基本知識

◎飼養與管理的重點 只要不是劇烈的變化,錦鯉很容易適應各水溫水質等環境的變化。並不是沒有大庭園就無法飼養,有人甚至在二樓陽台或頂樓陽台造水池飼養。然而我們是欣賞錦鯉雄壯豪邁之氣,因此水池盡量寬闊為宜,以水深1.2m以上為理想。魚池必須有底水排出,過濾循環等設備。用水不一定要取地下水,自來水也可以飼養。
<因為都市中有景觀安全的需求,及屋頂花園有荷重的需求,錦鯉池水深可以低到30cm左右。>
◎每天排水
A、糞或枯死的藻類全部送至過濾槽的話,耗氧量會增大,pH就下降,更會轉變為亞硝酸,增了過濾槽的負擔。為了盡量減輕過濾槽的負擔,每天至少把魚池的底水排水使固物排出去,把中間水送去沉澱槽及過濾槽。 
B、把固體廢物的魚糞集中排出,最好不要從池底打氣而是從排糞口的上方40~50公分打打氣。如此氣泡往上昇。池水產生對流。污物就集中於排糞口。
<可以設計水流把固體廢物盡量集中或排出到過濾系統中。>
◎過濾槽管理
A、細菌附著於濾材,分解固體廢物會消耗大量的氧。 
B、溶氧不足時,厭氧菌會把硝酸還原亞硝酸,或從碳酸氣發生沼氣,也會從硫酸分解產生硫化氫等有毒氣體。
<如果溶氧不足,可以優先把打氣設備放置到生化過濾槽中。>
◎溶氧要充份
A、水中溶氧不足的話,會影響錦鯉的生育,飼料的消化,,水質的維持等等。
B、硝酸,亞硝酸的濃度增高時,會影響溶氧量。所以優先去除硝酸及亞硝酸。
C、使用沸石可輕易去除硝酸,沸石量約等重於魚體總重量。
<沸石再生法,是將沸石浸泡25℃以上1:10食鹽水數小時,再以清水洗淨即可。>
◎水質的控制
水質硬度高的話,錦鯉肌膚經常會有少許充血的狀態。豔麗性也會慢慢消失,紅緋會上升。pH值低,肌膚變的很不好看,但是雖餵增色飼料,依然不見起色,徒增浪費。pH值7.1~7.5最適宜的。
◎鯉餌的重要性
良好的魚餌不會崩壞鯉的體型。餌的量也是在夏天水溫 高的時候,訂定停餌期間,才是整體來說使鯉變胖最重要的秘訣。如果還是想 要給很多餌的話,要增加循還量。錦鯉在水溫超過28度的時候,應給與相當於 鯉全體重量3%的餌。水溫25度時1.5%,水溫20度時0.3%,16度以下則要停止鯉餌,這就是鯉魚長得強壯的要訣。連續不斷地給鯉餌的話,引起內臟障礙, 而影響到鯉不會長壯,甚至導至體型的變歪。
◎魚病預防
水的管理與定期消毒都是很重要的步驟,…

蝶豆花

蝶豆花 原產拉丁美洲的蝶豆花是一種典型的熱帶蔓藤植物,全年盛開。
butterfly pea,拉丁語叫:Clitoria ternatea,泰語叫Dok Anchan
中文名叫蝶豆花,藍蝶花,藍蝴蝶、蝴蝶藍花,還有蝴羊豆、豆碧等別名。
用蝶豆花當作高品位浪漫的茶品飲用、以及當作天然食品色素制作糕點是拉丁美洲和南洋國家的風情和習俗。
蝶豆花的味道自然甘甜,南洋國家的一些五星級酒店通常把蝶豆花茶當作高貴的迎賓茶來接待貴賓。
營養價值 蝶豆花具有豐富的維他命A,C和E, 而且可以提高免疫力, 幫助和促進皮膚的彈力和骨膠原, 同時還具有補腦,促進腦的活力,防止胃痛,抗憂郁、抗壓力、鎮靜、止驚厥、緩和情緒等天然保健功效。
蝶豆花中的天然藍色素,也是有療效的。如果將其加入檸檬並調制成花茶飲品,就是保健心臟血管的絕佳飲料。
食用價值 蝶豆花的可食部位是葉、花及嫩莢。較幼嫩的葉片及盛開的花朵,亦可拿來煮湯、油炸等。用嫩芽來炒肉絲或煮熟後食用,都十分可口。蝶豆花的葉及花的萃取液,可當作純天然的食品染料。
