The Ukraine has been totally disrupted and has this powerful opportunity to show the world that “GREEN WORKS”.
Ukraine, manmade or Natural Disasters, use GREEN recovery !!!
Powerful Opportunity for us all!
“Symbol of Hope”
Ukraine is already involved in the GREEN movement !
>> So important to work on GREEN Recovery, cleaning up after each Catastrophe.

UKRAINE! REBUILD GREEN!
This Horrible Powerful Opportunity offers Ukraine the chance to join the The Achieved Club at the UN and become the largest nation to get closer to Zero Waste – Net Zero!
Take a look at what
new technologies can help you rebuild GREEN today!!!!!
The investigations of mine suggest many potential businesses, jobs, projects that can restore Ukraine in a sustainable way. It has been proven that the GREEN WAY supplies better return-on-investment than the old way. Investors are eager to invest in GREEN businesses and projects.
…………………Maybe one fits YOU!
These are presented here as ideas. They are what people are doing around the world, today. But planet Earth is showing us that even though we can ship something anywhere in the whole world, LOCAL INDUSTRY is actually much better for our planet. Maybe there are people locally in Ukraine, who have good ideas for these same needs…………………
HEATING / COOKING
Urban Energy Retrofits For Existing Buildings
There is a GREAT DEMAND for contractors to do this work!
I have seen in the destroyed apartment buildings, that many people in the Ukraine already use heat pumps. Heat Pumps are very important for cleaning city air and cutting electric use says the IEA.org.
Big Demand !
“Urban Retrofits with Heat Pumps” is one solution that every community, worldwide needs, to help us harmonize with planet Earth and cut emissions. Can your business get on-board?
If you are ready to get into the Heat Pump business, start to look for technicians that can save heat pumps that have been busted. Increase your inventory….Ukraine will need many new ones.
For a whole building!
Planet and People-friendly heating and cooling
“Heat Pump” Technology Comes to “Window AC Units” Planet-friendly heating and cooling for home. August 2021 – …..New technologies are emerging to help city cooling and heating …One startup, Gradient, has developed a window air conditioner (AC) unit that uses “heat pump” technology coupled with a refrigerant that has a lower environmental impact….
Four easy steps to ‘ahhhh’. Our installation bracket enables you to install Gradient safely and securely without fear of dropping or breaking it — no tools required. It is designed to be installed by two ordinary people — not professionals. Our do-it-yourself (DIY) installation approach generally takes about 15 minutes.
BEYOND FIRE: how to achieve electric cooking
May 28, 2019 – Achieving “sustainable cooking” is one of the great challenges of our time.
Cooking with charcoal, firewood or natural gas sources still accounts for 4 million premature deaths due to indoor air pollution or gas leaks, puts significant strain on already stressed forest resources, and it is the single largest source of greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs).
Cooking with renewable electricity is now well within the range of cost-competitiveness of other cooking alternatives, concludes a new report called Beyond Fire: How to achieve electric cooking by Hivos and World Future Council. This is a significant improvement from three years ago when the two organizations studied this for the first time.
ORGANIC WASTE to ELECTRICITY?
QUICK AND SIMPLE!
As popular as Gas Cooking is, too much is dangerous to health and planet Earth. Natural Gas is Methane!
Or use cleaner Bio Gas if you must! Bio Gas is also Methane, but it burns cleaner as Bio Gas.
Bio Gas is so easy and quick to make from almost any Organic Waste…………

It takes very little money and time to make an Organic Digester……
More DIY videos here
And there is more than one way to make one…….
Or you can buy one already made and simple to set up….all the way to the kitchen cooking.
But, I ask:
Is it possible to take a russian tank engine and turn it into a Bio Gas electricity generator?
>>>World Bank estimated $60bn+ in physical damage in Ukraine – The World Bank has estimated that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has caused $60bn+ in damage to buildings and infrastructure across Ukraine so far. This figure as already increased a number of times over this last 6 months.
Satellite Leak Detection technology
An Entire City at Once to be sure that all repairs are made….
ASTERRA – satellite-based leak detection
ASTERRA Recover locates and analyzes moisture leaking from underground pipes so that repairs can be planned and expedited using hard data.
With Recover, entire city-wide systems for drinking water and wastewater can be viewed and analyzed at once. Even leaks that have left no surface evidence at all are easily located. Ground crews can then be used with maximum efficiency, digging to repair the leaks that Recover has found rather than digging to look.
Behind every ASTERRA product is satellite-based synthetic aperture radar (SAR) technology, detecting subterranean soil moisture with Utilis-patented algorithms. It’s this technology that lets us see and analyze the actual moisture itself as it accumulates below ground, a capability unique to ASTERRA. The radar’s “eye-print” of over 1,300 sq miles (3,500 sq km) is larger than most cities and will revisit the same location every 14 days.

how fungus could help rebuild derelict Cleveland or M, or K
“I like to refer to Cleveland as ‘ground zero’ for biocycling,” says Christopher Maurer.
Biocycling combines construction waste and debris with “biobinders” (a natural glue or cement) like fungi, plant materials and microbes to create new building materials. In practice this means that on-site “construction waste” is ground up into a pulp and mixed with plant materials, which are allowed to grow in place. The resulting “bio-materials” are then pressed and treated to make suitable bricks and insulation wall board. “The ultimate goal,” says Maurer, “is to reduce the carbon footprint, to be able to make new buildings entirely out of old ones.”
“This work is hard,” admits Maurer. “We’re asking our collaborators to be farmers, architects, engineers, and biologists, and we’re asking microorganisms to help us construct buildings.
Biocycler/Bioterials™ produced from mycelium as a binder show results better than the compression of wood framing, the bend resistance of concrete, better insulator than fiberglass batts and has strong fire resistance. These and other biomaterials may have the capacity to revolutionize the building industry with better qualified materials while they lower carbon footprints.
Biocycler will be exactly what we need to rebuild after disasters, both natural and manmade as in the case of Putin’s war in Ukraine. Clearing debris is one the biggest tasks in order to rebuild. Instead of millions of tons of debris going to landfills, imagine being able to use that material to rebuild. This could limit having to buy new construction materials.
Beyond resource management, the environmental impact of recycling materials can be huge. New construction emits 50-75% more carbon than renovation does. 84% of the embodied carbon of building materials comes from the raw material extraction. Using waste material like building debris minimizes both new resource extraction and the carbon related to extraction. Thanks, Chris

Sustainable Ideas worth considering
- Second-hand materials
The fact is that the process of using recyclable materials is only now getting the attention it deserves. And the best thing about this idea is that it’s so practical, useful, and versatile. Such materials include recycled bricks, timber, and steel, as well as glass and other materials that can be used over and over again. This minimizes the need for buying new resources.
- Modular construction
Check out / consider modular construction. Instead of doing everything on-site, you complete a section of your building process off-site. Then put everything together on-site.
This process comes with a rich history behind it and it has been around for ages. If you’re looking for ways to minimize construction time and your costs and add of the sustainability factor of your construction business. Modular building is another opportunity to use second-hand materials, help you reduce waste, become more efficient, and conserve time, energy, money, and resources.
It is the information that LEED can give Ukraine that is important here. How to re-construct buildings in a Circular Economy
What is LEED?
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a voluntary program meant to objectively measure how sustainable a building is.
LEED is one of the most widely used green building rating system in the world. The European one is BREEAM. Available for virtually all building types, LEED provides a framework for healthy, efficient, and cost-saving green buildings. Certification from LEED is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement and leadership.
This framework informs all building types including new construction, interiors, operations and maintenance, and core and shell. Unsure of which rating system to use? Learn more about how to select the appropriate rating system for your need.
