Team Kaizen : Pitch the Future | Shell Eco-marathon

Transcript

Title: Session #1 - TEAM KAIZEN

Duration: 2:02 minutes

Description: 

Team Kaizen, part of the Shell Eco-marathon, describe their experience of Pitch the Future.

Session #1 - TEAM KAIZEN Transcript

[Background music plays]

Rhythmical instrumental music.

[Video Footage]

A series of head shots of individual team members on a video conference talking straight into the camera. Each team member speaks one word. Behind the video is a brightly coloured background comprising yellow, teal and grey cogs turning. Cuts to the six members of Team Kaizen smiling and waving into the camera.

Cut to a head-on frontal shot of another team member.

[Visuals]

Cuts to a sequence of static shots of the team. The first is in a lecture theatre. The second shot shows team members surrounded by equipment and materials. The focus is on a smiling team member wearing a hard hat sitting in the centre of the shot. The third shot is of six team members on a video call.

[Video Footage]

Cuts back to the team member speaking, who raises his fist enthusiastically.

[Team Member]

The most interesting fact about Team Kaizen is the working environment. After a long day of work, to cheer up the team, we organise gaming sessions and movie nights for our team bonding, which, in the long run, keeps the motivation and enthusiasm up.

Footage cuts to a shot of one team member kneeling welding a frame-like structure, observed by other members of the team.

[Animation]

Animation from the team pitch video with wavy lines entering a cylinder and being processed, resulting in two lines of drops, one white and one blue, being discharged from the container.

[Video Footage]

Close up of scientific equipment with water droplets falling into a container, followed by an image of smoke coming out of a chimney against a blue sky. Footage returns to the six members of the team in the video conference, before cutting to focus on the team member who is speaking.

[Team Member]

We, too, have worked on several ideas including generating electricity from water droplets to smoke treatment systems at chimneys. But, to sum them all up, it all boils down to using technology to harvest energy from cleaner unconventional resources.

As engineering students, we learn and deal with technology every day, using tech to improve people's lives and deal with global challenges of climate change. What more can an engineer want?

The biggest challenge was that everyone had to work from their homes because of the pandemic and the lockdown. We missed the lab the most.

One crucial thing that we learned from Pitch the Future is the adaptability to change. At first, our team's aim was to build a highly efficient electric vehicle but, since, life is unpredictable so we need to adapt to new changes.

Team Kaizen’s approach to the home decarbonisation challenge is multifaceted, understanding that a range of solutions are needed to significantly reduce carbon emissions from the residential sector. Some of these solutions include:

Sensor-based smoke treatment system

A prototype vent treatment system, which reduces carbon emissions by extracting carbon from residential chimneys and releasing the decarbonised air safely. The technology relies on:

  • Multiple sensors to measure CO2 levels
  • A carbon filter similar to those used in car exhausts
  • An integrated warning system alarm

Building materials

Injecting cement bricks with carbon during the production process, capturing rather than emitting it throughout manufacture. Doing so also increases the strength of concrete, without compromising its other properties.

Home Biogas unit

A home biogas unit that can be used to provide cooking gas for an individual home from the bacterial anaerobic digestion of biodegradable waste that the home generates.

Daylight sensor

A daylight sensor system, which uses multiple sensors and a micro-controller to measure the amount of natural light entering the home. This helps to judge the need for artificial lighting at each point throughout the day, automatically adjusting the level as required.

Air conditioning systems

Modified HVAC units that can capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and subsequently transform it into a fuel for powering vehicles. To achieve this, Team Kaizen suggests adding a filter to absorb CO2 and an electrolyser to strip the oxygen molecule from H2O, creating H2 that can be combined with CO2 to produce hydrocarbon fuels.
