From Waste to Circular Economy Through History. eBook (Italian)

Italian Version . Sometimes it happens to be convinced that some processes, some products or some services are the result of recent discoveries, that some strands of thought such as recycling, green economy, circular economy, renewable energy or the function of plastics, among supporters and against, have been born in recent years. Everything seems so close in time, the seas polluted by plastic, the garbage on the streets, the separate collection that does not work as it should, global warming, vehicular traffic and the fossil combustion boilers that pollute the air, the hope of hydrogen, wind and sun for cleaner energy and to combat rising temperatures on the planet. The media, social networks, people talk about climate change, the rationalization of the use of products, the reuse and refusal of disposables, sustainable mobility, a less unbalanced diet towards meat, forestation for carbon balance, of desertification and upheavals of natural habitats with the consequence of the emergence of new, unknown viral strains that threaten man. A bombardment of news, concentrated, which seem to have been born all together, developing as an intertwining of interconnected rings that strengthen our sense of restlessness. ; Between hopes and anxieties we try to understand the evolution of the intertwining between environment-consumption-production-energy-waste-food, as if no one before today had realized how much the correct management of these phases are indispensable for our future and that of our children. But nothing seems certain as in this period, nothing seems to have an evolution from the past that makes us understand how to face the future based on the experiences of those who preceded us, everything seems new and unknown. ; But it is perhaps the load of news that pervades our daily life in which we sometimes do not have the time to investigate and weigh things, which makes us think that there is no past and everything happens today. ; In reality there are many things in our life that although they seem recent or relatively new or even only sketchy and of which we await the arrival as the resolution to current problems, in reality, in most of the times they are known to historical paths. Maybe they were sketched, used then abandoned and then resumed, they were immature and today they can come back vigorously thanks to technological advances, out of time then and now current, not essential in the past but useful today. ; We are talking about scientific discoveries, indispensable materials, innovative industrial processes, initiatives to protect the environment, sustainable economy and attention to the environment, in a historical period in which none of this was really considered important, but that marked a beginning, through far-sighted and out of the ordinary men who stubbornly sowed a small seed that, after years or centuries, made a continuity with modern times blossom. In this book we start from afar, from the medieval period, to link our present with our past and, through characters who worked in completely different sectors, we go up the slope of the years, up to the present day, with what still seems to we the future: hydrogen. It is not a history book, but an episodic story, liberations drawn from the life and work of famous or completely unknown people, told on the basis of the contribution they have made to progress, small or large, but always innovative and still useful today for our life. Many other characters can follow, all united by the certainty that today we are where man wanted to be, for better or for worse, and that nothing is born by chance, suddenly. ; The book is available in the Italian version on Amazon in eBook version or in the PDF version by writing us an email.

Environment and Circular Economy: 30 Pills to Reflect in the Italian version. Environment and circular economy are two sides of the same coin. There is no concept of sustainable environment and ecosystem if we fail to implement a circular management process of the waste we produce and a massive use of renewable energy. ; Let's imagine a great engine that is powered by our actions through a chain of conjunction that generates our life.  Without energy we cannot live, but this engine must be powered by actions in our life that allow and justify, over time, the existence of the circuit. ; The actions are represented by a correct approach to waste management according to the 4R concept, reduce, reuse, recycling and recovery, and by the unconditional use of renewable energy sources. ; But what do these 4Rs actually mean? Reduce It starts from the concept of eliminating what may be superfluous, for example trying to buy products without packaging, such as bulk detergents or mineral water from municipal distributors. In other cases it means choosing products that have a totally recyclable mono-plastic packaging (i.e. avoid product packaging with multilayer plastics) or wood or non-plasticized paper or glass or metal, all recyclable. Reuse We should have already learned the concept of reuse from our grandparents and their ancestors, who reused everything that was possible until the natural exhaustion of the materials. A used or "out of fashion" dress (a modern concept although questionable if too much weight is attributed to it) should not be thrown in the garbage, but placed in the garbage cans, with which many associations will give clothes to those who cannot allow you to buy them. They can also become rags for dust or other uses. Plastic bags, once received by the merchant, can be reused in many ways, as can paper bags. The wooden or plastic fruit box can be used in the cellar or garage or at home to tidy up. The detergent bottle can be used by refilling it, like glass or plastic water bottles. These are just trivial examples that, however, must make us think before throwing away a product, because each recovered packaging reduces waste in the environment and saves precious raw materials. Recycle It is understandable that not everything can be reusable, therefore, when we decide to transform an asset that we no longer need into waste, we must think that we are not throwing a useless object, but a raw material that can and must be reused so as not to weigh on the environment. So it is important to separate the paper from glass, plastic, metal and wood, so that recycling centers can transform them into new raw material. If this operation is not done, the materials that could be recycled will be considered non-usable waste, therefore lost, with a negative environmental impact. Recovery At the end of the virtuous cycles expressed as reduction, reuse and recycling, there may be fractions of non-workable and reusable waste according to the rules described. Once again nothing is lost, because non-recyclable waste can take two ways: to produce electricity and heat through modern waste-to-energy plants, or subject them to chemical recycling that breaks down the products into original fractions of polymers, for example, to make them reborn as a new raw material. All these operations have a deserving influence on the environmental impact, reducing water, air and soil pollution and saving exhaustible natural resources. Another essential element in defense of the environment is the use of renewable energy in any form: wind, solar, geothermal, hydraulic, fusion and marine. The growth of their use must be continuous, both in the civil and industrial sectors, because saving oil not only reduces the emissions into the atmosphere that are strangling the world , but avoid negative, collateral consequences, such as deforestation, the destruction of natural ecosystems and seas. Finally, in this great moving chain that unites everyone, the environment must have a correct balance between human needs and climate protection. Climate change is not expressed only with the annoyance of the heat that disturbs our life, so we worry about turning up the air conditioner, or seeing the melting on television of the arctic ice caps as an abstract documentary that fills our days. Global warming leads to prolonged droughts in some areas of the planet, which creates famines, mass migrations to countries less exposed to climate pressures, increasing tensions at the borders among the various countries, the clandestine trafficking of human beings, the spread of pandemic diseases, the wars for water, for food and for the land that remained fertile, the devastating fires such as those that occurred in Australia that kill, destroy the forests that they give us oxygen, animals and agricultural activities, leading to the spread of poverty and the reduction of agricultural production, it also reduces international trade and increases global insecurity. In the book we wanted to collect articles, published on the Web and expressed in pills, in order to continue this reasoning of correlation between environment, waste, clean energy, and their consequences if we do not accelerate on these three cornerstones of our life. The 30 pills, to light up your reflections, embrace in different forms and with different news, the indissoluble chain that moves our life, with the hope that each , reflecting, he sees his own existence in a different and less impactful way.
