Green Mountain Roaster, who supplies such chains as McDonald's and Starbucks, is experimenting with turning the waste produced from coffee production (and consumption) into usable energy. The process was originally developed for NASA's lunar bases. In other news, Design Museum London gets a new home and the Smithsonian's Archives of American Art celebrates Jackson Pollock's 100th birthday.
