    What would be different had Rachel Carson discovered PFAS rather than DDT?

    What would be different had Rachel Carson discovered PFAS rather than DDT?

    Sixty years ago, the American writer, scientist, and ecologist Rachel Carson published her book, Silent Spring, exposing the hazards of the pesticide DDT on the environment. For the first time, the need to regulate the industry to protect the environment became widely accepted, and environmentalism was born. 
    Sarah Hale and Hans Peter Arp lead the EU research and innovation project ZeroPM to tackle pollution from thousands of hazardous PM substances. They ask: What would be different had Rachel Carson discovered PFAS rather than DDT? And what key lesson should be learned to avoid more Silent Springs from happening?

    The development of Suction Bucket foundations for offshore wind turbines

    The development of Suction Bucket foundations for offshore wind turbines

    NGI's Per Sparrevik was in 2015, with two NGI colleagues, inducted into the Offshore Energy Centre's Hall of Fame in Galveston, Texas, USA for his work on suction anchors. He has been part of the development of suction buckets foundations from the early days in oil and gas projects to today's use for offshore wind turbines. Rasmus Klinkvort has talked with Per about suction buckets in general and the transition from oil and gas to offshore wind turbine projects. If you are interested in suction caisson design for offshore wind turbines this is the podcast for you.

    The PISA project and how that changed monopile design

    The PISA project and how that changed monopile design

    The PIle Soil Analsis (PISA) project was a big joint research project performed some years ago. Today the project is finalized and the outcome of the project is reported as open access article. The project has had a big influence on the industry and how we design monopiles today. Rasmus Klinkvort has talked with the academic leader of the project Professor Byron Byrne from the University of Oxford.  He explains the principle and findings of the projects and also looks ahead to where new research on cyclic loading is heading. If you are interested in monopile design for offshore wind turbines this is the podcast for you.
