Progressing eco-friendly technology to make the world a better place

Eco-tech is on the rise as more and more people get behind the go green campaign. European countries have begun banning plastic bags from being used in stores. Laws that concern harsher punishments for carbon emissions are being created. All around the world people are waking up to the reality of climate change. It is only obvious that technology that forms a bedrock of our life nowadays should also follow the development and new thought.

Risk of using Hydrogen fuel cells and alternative energy sources to explore

As most of our non-renewable energy sources are depleting, we are looking towards alternatives. At present, many alternative sources are being used and one of them that drew attention was hydrogen. The technology for production of vehicles which run on hydrogen and the fuel that runs these vehicles has been developed long time ago but experts believe that its commercial mainstream use will take another ten to twenty years to start.

The Big Question: Will piezoelectricity ever become a viable source of electricity

The ever increasing demand for power has made us look out for alternate forms of renewable energy like solar power, hydro-electric power, geo-thermal power and wind power etc. One such renewable source of energy that has been gaining popularity over the past few years is the Piezoelectric Technology that generates power from the electromagnetic properties of some minerals found on earth.

Five industries that use thermoacoustics for greater efficiency

You must have observed the Thermoacoustic effect when partly molten glass tubes connect to different glass vessels. The spontaneously loud and monotone sound is produced. Similar effect is observed in stainless steel tube with one side kept at room temperature and the other is in contact with liquid helium at 4.2. The major role of thermoacoustic can be seen in heat engines. But now, thermoacoustics are used in air-conditioners, refrigerators and cryogenic applications.

Scientists to develop ‘game changing’ carbon neutral fuel technology

A UK university-led team of scientists is to develop a reactor that converts CO2 into fuel so efficiently it could offset every year more than three times the amount of carbon produced by Britain. The team led by Edinburgh-based Heriot Watt University has won a grant worth £1.2 million from the Government’s main scientific research funding agency, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), to carry out the research. It will look to make ‘photo-catalytic reductions,’ which use solar energy to create common fuels from CO2, into highly efficient processes. The team estimates their high-efficiency photo-reactors could produce enough fuel to offset 700 million tonnes of carbon in the […]
