Conceptualizing the PC3R Technology® [Pollution Construct, Remediation (bio), Restoration and Re-use] requires fusion of biodegradation science-phytobiomes -materiomics transpose pollutant of concerns interaction with of the microbe–pollutants-soil–microbe-water-pollutants–plant–microbe interface’ to understand the bioavailability for the treatment solutions without residual toxicology or hydrocarbon footprint and the use of treated landscape for ecological services for sustainable development. Three ‘key enabling technologies for the innovation ecosystem for the natural resource management are:
- Biodegradation science – Microbial inoculants (bioremediation) and microbiomes
- Phytobiomes – Networks of interactions among plants, their environment, and complex communities of organisms profoundly influence plant and agro-ecosystem health and productivity – restoration/re-use.
- Materiomics is the ‘complete’ material system bottom-up design of purpose-specific materials its constituents and structure, properties and processes, function, failure, using biological organisms.
PC3R Technology® is service science value-co-creation as transdisciplinary approach to the study, design, and implementation of services systems of complex systems in which specific arrangements of people, materials and technologies take actions that provide sustainable value for biodiversity and development.
- Environmental sustainability
Sustainable electronics brings to mind images and concerns about energy efficiency, resource use, and waste disposal or recycling – that is, building an electronic world that enables sustainable management of natural resources. For example, how can electronic devices be built that operate more energy efficiently than today’s silicon-based devices? Creating more sustainable electronic products is not just about building a more “eco-friendly” or other device, but also using more “eco-friendly” manufacturing methods to do so. It is where, sustainability cuts across the entire life cycle of an electronic product, from raw resources to disposal for example by using carbon-based material instead of precious earth-mined resources and by relying on safer and less energy intensive manufacturing methods than silicon-based electronic processing methods.
- Technology sustainability
Sustainable electronics implies that electronics itself is long lasting – not just the actual devices, but also organic electronic technology in general. Chemical, materials, and other scientists and engineers have only just begun to tap the vast potential for innovative functionality made possible through the use of organic materials in electronic devices.
Organic electronic structures with biological systems opens up a vast world of possibility with respect to medical, sensing, and other human interface applications. In agriculture
using biofertilizer instead of chemical fertilizer for sustainable crop production.
