CalStar Publishes EPD for Fly Ash Brick

CalStar Products makes brick with a proprietary manufacturing process and a binder of fly ash.  By using fly ash, the company diverts waste from the landfill (37% recycled content) and eliminates energy-intensive firing — these bricks are cured overnight at temperatures below 200° F, according to CalStar.  To give the market comfort with their sustainability claims, CalStar obtained a lifecycle analysis (LCA) from Perkins + Will and published the results in an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD).

It turns out cradle-to-gate (raw material extraction/transportation and manufacturing) CO2 emissions for a single CalStar brick is 0.13 pounds, compared to 0.81 for a single clay brick.  Cradle-to-gate embodied energy is 1,203 BTU of energy for the CalStar brick versus 6,251 BTU of energy for a traditional clay-fired brick.

In other words, that’s 81% less manufacturing energy and an 84% smaller carbon footprint delivered with the CalStar fly ash brick.  The CalStar brick is available in modular and utility sizing and a palette of earth tones.

Perkins + Will finished the LCA using data sets from GaBi 5.0 software, while the Institute for Market Transformation to Sustainability verified the EPD under the SMaRT Certified rating system, according to a CalStar press release.

Unity is an Ultra-Efficient Factory-Built Home

Today New Hampshire-based Bensonwood, an innovator in home building, announced the launch of a new brand of prefab homes called Unity Homes. With Unity Homes, the company expects to raise the bar for home construction without raising the price tag, too. There will be four diverse home collections — renderings of which are shown in this article — each with several configurations and two-four bedroom options, and all of the homes will use at least 50% (and up to 75%) less energy than a typical home on the market.

The mission of Unity Homes is to offer the highest quality homes for the lowest possible cost. This will be done to a certain extent through the pre-engineered collections of home designs.

These prefab homes are built in a factory as assemblies and sub-assemblies — typically a panel — using advanced software systems, automated cutting machines, and a streamlined manufacturing process, according to a company statement. All of the fabricated elements are then stacked and packed, again using software to optimize the use of space, and assembled on-site in about one to three days.

The total amount of time required to assemble and button-up a home is roughly 20-60 working days, according to Bensonwood.

In order to deliver ultra-efficiency as a standard feature, each Unity house will have high levels of insulation with R-35 walls (the OBPlusWall) and an R-44 roof, triple-pane windows, an all-electric hot water heater, an air-source heat pump, an energy recovery ventilator, and rigorous envelope assembly to ensure a Passive House level of airtightness to 0.6 ACH @ 50 Pascals or better.

With an added investment in some form of renewable energy, such as solar PV, most of these energy-efficient homes should achieve zero net energy consumption.

In addition, they will be Open-Built, to use a term that’s unique to Bensonwood. In short, various mechanical systems are separated from the structure in order to make future repairs, upgrades, and additions easier.

Unity truly has a broad array of home designs to start with, including the American bungalow (Xyla; size 1,113 – 1,591 SF; from $199,750), classic tall Cape (Tradd; 2,056 – 2,452 SF; from $339,500), Swedish-inspired two-story (Värm; 1,782 – 2,896 SF; from $298,250), and a modern green cabin (Zūm; 1,594 – 2,133 SF; from $298,500). Pricing is generally between $200,000 – $450,0000, excluding land, permits, taxes, site improvements and excavations, and transportation greater than 50 miles.

Omnivex to Showcase the Capabilities and Business Benefits of Moxie Software at InfoComm

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) June 13, 2011

Omnivex Corporation, Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and provider of enterprise-level software for digital signage networks, will be exhibiting in booth #4549 at this year’s InfoComm tradeshow taking place in at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, June 15 – 17. Omnivex will be demonstrating the latest features of their recently released version of Moxie software, 6.08, which includes a new dynamic wayfinding module. Moxie enables customers to develop engaging and informative digital signage content that drives business results and improves operational efficiencies.

Omnivex Moxie software offers customers the ability to distribute information and communicate with their targeted audiences through the effective use of real-time data. Omnivex is known for their ability to make content on the screens more relevant to viewers by utilizing both internal and external data to determine what content to display on the screens. From an operational standpoint, Moxie automates many of the processes associated with maintaining real-time digital signage networks, resulting in increased efficiencies and therefore reduced costs. With its ability to manage complex playlists by combining meta-data tags with content assets and predetermined rules for where and when those assets should play, managing a large network of screens is made simple. It is suitable for a wide range of applications and offers a long term, scalable solution for contextual visual communications.

Moxie 6.08 offers a number of performance enhancements which not only broaden the scope of its graphical and functional capabilities, but also make it more user friendly. By replacing the previous MSMQ communication protocol with TCP, the software offers faster and more reliable message delivery between applications. Further benefits of 6.08 include improved playlist management features and greater encryption control for better security and stability of user networks.

The new wayfinding module will be on display at the Omnivex booth. It represents an innovative and highly anticipated addition to the Moxie software platform. The new module allows users to dynamically generate interactive wayfinding maps by actively responding to real-time environmental factors and determining the best path a user should take. In the past, predefined routes were used to provide a path from point A to B, but with Moxie everything is based on current conditions, making it far more sophisticated. The system even enables a user to send themselves an SMS message with the wayfinding directions or print a copy of the map for their reference. With the software’s easy to use, drag and drop interface, the network operator does not need to have any specialized programming skills to set up and maintain interactive wayfinding maps in Moxie.

InfoComm focuses on the AV market, with more than 32,000 AV professionals and 950+ exhibitors. From audio components to telepresence systems, digital signage to 3D projectors, InfoComm 2011 will showcase the latest products and applications for the AV industry. Omnivex software is sold and supported worldwide by our Value Added Reseller partners.
