8. sustainable energy

8.1. using energy in sustainable way

8.2. preventing exploiting it

8.3. better ways of generating energy

9. efficient implementation

9.1. make resource use more efficient: global network for communication between countries on availablility of resources (f.i. icehubs network)

9.2. recycling the undamaged

9.2.1. trade / share abundant resources

10. in-field gazifier

10.1. avoid "black cloud"

10.2. ecological burning of rize straw on location & use the ashes for terrapretta
