This training presents a very effective strategy to use for boosting the rehabilitation phase after earthquakes. All is done with natural solutions. Moreover, chemical pollution is removed as well.
- How to prepare communities for earthquakes in high-risk areas
- How to recover some energy from the process (from debris and collapsed buildings/facilities)
- How to remediate (or remove) chemicals released from several sources by the accident
During this training you’ll learn some important advantages related to the composting of construction & demolition waste. This applies very well to most debris left after earthquakes. By adding these very special waste to beef cattle feedlot manure, the final quality of the compost is increased. In addition, higher temperatures are reached during the process, with more significant thermal energy generated. Moreover, a strong reduction of harmful emissions from composting is expected. This means that a higher yield of energy is coupled with a final product more beneficial for agricultural purposes. This so important outcome can be reached in about 100 days of composting.
In addition, you will also discover the steps to follow for an effective and quick rehabilitation phase after disaster. There are four steps to follow: how to recycle debris after disasters, how to use them to generate energy, how to use them to achieve food independence and how to use them to re-activate local development. Cinchona is the Province in Costa Rica when this framework has been adopted for the first time by UNDP, in 2009. However, in this case such framework is targeted only to energy generation and supply. A very innovative series of events, can be implemented right away after a disaster, by affected communities and energy companies.
Finally, you will learn how to organize communities, companies and more in general all the affected area in order to make the whole process more feasible. One more time, the preparedness phase is essential. From materials collection to the application on the field, all has to be done with the highest attention and care.
What materials you should consider (starting from debris after disasters) for the application of this strategy; please note that a very good organization within the community is essential.
The right natural and easy to apply processes for coupling the rehabilitation phase with the generation of new energy, basically for free. Please note that this key feature is very helpful also in the case of post-conflict reconstruction.
The best natural processes for removing the highest amount of chemicals released by the disaster; please note that asbestos and many heavy metals may be present, so it’s mandatory carry out a deep investigation on the quality and quantity of involved buildings and facilities.
This live training focuses the attention on earthquakes and belongs to the bigger framework called “Disaster Blaster – Energy Faster”. This very special framework is aimed at optimizing natural resources in order to increase the level of preparedness among communities and energy industries.
If you wish, there is the chance of ordering a customized handbook that covers more deeply a specific issue related to opportunities for increasing natural protection measures against earthquakes. You only need to send us a message and we’ll reply with our proposal.
