Kalundborg Symbiosis, Denmark’s Near-Zero-Waste Wonder of environmentally friendly industry? Astrogeographic position: the town has both coordinates in the self protective earth sign Virgo the sign of reason, the preservation of nature, gardening, protection of ecological systems, the Greenpeace Headquarters and spirits of plants. Valid for field level 2 which describes how the town is embedded in Denmark.

The basic concept behind Flectofin is relatively simple, but it's proven elusive in the world of architecture and design. Essentially, it's a façade shading system that swings open and closed based on the position of louvers attached to a bendable rod. Turning the louver down bends the rod and opens the Flectofin surface, while turning it up straightens the rod which swings the Flectofin closed.

WhalePower, has redesigned the typically smooth blades on a turbine, adding a series of ridges, based on tubercles, the bumps on humpback whale fins. The company says this new blade design could increase annual electrical production for existing wind farms by 20 percent.
