Let's Celebrate How Engineers are Improving the Planet
This year, on World Engineering Day for Sustainable Development, we are taking time to pat Engineers on the back. Engineers all over the world are making innovative and inspiring advances helping humanity and our environment. Titan Recruitment is proud to continue opening doors to talented, hardworking individuals that make up Australia's incredible engineering workforce.
Engineers must have their eyes on the future. As put eloquently by the chairman of Engineers Australia's Sustainable Engineering Society, Steve Posselt:
"Just about everything you see has the fingerprint of an engineer on it. The buildings in a city, even the trees in the street, have been through a process of deciding where you're going to plant them and how you're going to get water to them. Engineers have had something to do with it all."
Our roles impact countless aspects of everyday life across the globe. We are always looking ahead to anticipate what the world will need and how we will provide the solutions. Let's take a look at some of the cutting edge ways engineers are helping humanity and Mother Earth:
1. Making Water Out of Thin Air
Access to clean drinking water is something that many of us take for granted every day. However, millions of people do not have this privilege. It is this fact that has spurred the creation of the Warka Tower.
The Warka Tower uses gravity, condensation, and evaporation processes to collect water from the air. The tower is run by solar power and built with sustainable, recyclable materials. It comes with an irrigation system that can help grow a garden, producing enough food for an entire community. By providing environmentally friendly, safe drinking sources, this innovative technology is transforming the lives of countless people all over the world.
