Five companies using green technology to sustain the environment

It may not be an exaggeration of sorts to say that sustainability may be the keyword upon which the entire substratum of human existence rests. The biggest of companies have recognized the fact and consequently are putting up with environment friendly policies and practices. The three P’s – people, planet and profit are the guiding forces of modern day corporate. Five companies using green technology to sustain the environment

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

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. Five industries that use thermoacoustics for greater efficiency

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 […]

Benefits of Solar Battery Chargers

If you make use of a portable solar battery charger, you have already taken the very first step down the road to recognizing the value of the power generated by the sun as a possible means for energy. Those few individuals who are not aware about the utility of solar power should make an active effort to bear out the responsibility that has been handed over to them. Batteries which are capable of being recharged or more likely the solar battery have turned out to be a great substitute actually for throwing the use-and-throw batteries into waste dumps. Portable Power Solar battery chargers are generally portable and are almost as […]
