Utilize unused concrete silos on agriculture farms to construct Omni-directional low velocity wind turbines for generating supplemental electrical power for agriculture operations. Construct multiple wind collectors or sails around the perimeter to direct low velocity wind into vertical chamber and direct it into the turbine. See sketch and attached photo of a ...

Invention of the Lyne Atomic Hydrogen Furnace began in 1964, when William Lyne took interest in the atomic hydrogen welding process while attending an industrial processes course at Sam Houston State University, Huntsville, Texas. Irving Langmuir discovered the process in the 1920s and developed it only for welding. Lyne discovered errors in Langmuir's theory and immediately conceived and designed a completely new use, as a means for domestic and industrial heating applications and production of superheated dry steam for turbo-electric power generation.

Lyne has continued to refine and develop his furnace with many improvements, composed of a unique and ingenious combination of components and technology.

In the atomic hydrogen reaction, diatomic hydrogen molecules are dissociated ...

Just think about it:

Carbon dioxide is the chief greenhouse gas and most of it lasts about 100 years in the air, but some of it stays in the atmosphere for thousands of years. The burning of fossil fuels, such as oil for gasoline, has caused the overwhelming bulk of the man-made increase of carbon in the air. The International Energy Agency reported that global carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels was at a high of 34.8 billion tons in 2011. Temperatures through the entire decade of 2000-2010 were the warmest on record.

Just thought about it:

Greenhouse gases will continue to cause exceedingly high temperatures. MagnaNgine is a revolutionary solution to OUR problem.

Turning polluting emissions into liquid fuel seems rather improbable, doesn't it?

But I have developed a technology which can generate liquid fuel from harmful gases that are produced when fuel is burnt by a vehicle. If commercialized, and further researched, the new technology could lead to a massive reduction in pollution levels of the country.

FUEL MAKING: The bio remediation-based catalytic convertor creates liquid fuel out of emissions. To make fuel from carbon emissions, I tweaked the catalytic convertor of a vehicle to prevent it from using any chemicals and instead use Algae named coccolithophorids with media, enabling it to reduce emissions and in the process produce liquid fuel.

Our urge to create a ...

This project aims at increasing the conversion efficiency of photovoltaic modules applying the concept of moveable mounting panels to the microscale. Thanks to the improvements in micro-fabrication processes, it is now possible to integrate solar cells over movable structures, realizing the first Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Sunflower (MEMSflower).

Nature has elegantly solved with the sunflower the problem of tracking the Sun during the course of the day to get the maximum irradiation. Man, as often happens, has copied this concept integrating solar panels over movable platforms to track the (relative to Earth) movement of the Sun during the day. This is of paramount importance, since the efficiency of any photovoltaic system is reduced by the angle of incidence at which sunlight strikes ...

Saving energy is similar to creating energy in this way: if someone saves 1 KWH of energy then there is no need to produce that 1 KWH. This alleviates pollution and helps in carbon credit.

At present, there is a great need for an ultra high efficiency light source (Lumen per Watt), long life (hours), affordable cost ($) and use of minimum (close to zero) toxic materials like mercury.

Incandescent bulbs are notoriously least efficient, producing about 12 Lumen per watt. Their life is also much shorter, at about 1,000 hours. The Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFL) may have higher efficiency of about 40 Lumen per watt but their color rendition is undesirable. Also they contain anywhere from 5 to ...

The core idea behind this proposal is the scientific expectation that surface functionalized carbonaceous nanoparticle containing pre-heated diesel engine fuel (petrodiesel, biodiesel etc.) would have increased molecular kinetic energy and better reaction characteristics resulting in a more efficient and greener combustion process.

When exposed to certain microwave spectra, graphitic nanoparticles tend to absorb directed energy instantaneously owing to their intrinsic dielectric properties and enhanced quantum rotational resonances induced by the presence of polar functional side group chains on their surface [1]. Entrapped microwave energy will be immediately converted into heat and transferred to fuel molecules in the immediate vicinity of the excited functionalized graphitic nanoparticle thus presenting an extremely quick and energy efficient fuel pre-heating opportunity before combustion.

Migrating Floating Gardens is a sketch for a project that predicts the next location for green in urban environments. Historically, urban environments encroached upon outlying wilderness and green was detached from the city. Subsequently green was introduced first on the horizontal plane in the form of parks. Modernity and the development of dense, high-rise construction pushed green to rooftops. Currently, the vertical surface is receiving much attention as the axis for green in urban environments. As the Cartesian axes have all been heavily considered as sites for green, the logical next location lies in non-Cartesian space—floating in the air.

The gardens would be suspended in the air from large remotely controlled dirigibles. Each inflatable craft would house thousands of ...

Currently much motivation exists for development of wind turbines in the lower wind speed regimes.

Many wind turbines face difficulties during high wind speed (e.g., during a storm) and must either apply overspeed protection, in the form of a reverse torque, or shut off altogether in a feathered mode to avoid damage. Extraction of energy in the high wind speed regime is generally more difficult for that of low wind speed, partially because of the engineering challenges involved to handle capability with high wind speed. The problem is also compounded by the increasingly sporadic, punctuated frequency of event occurrence as a function of wind speed.

On the other hand, extraction of the low wind speed regime, despite energy limits, ...

One of the biggest Gas Industry in Abu Dhabi is conducting a pilot test of gas recovery and injection in the United Arb Emirates. The $90.7 million project must be completed within 34 months. A major challenge was the provision of a roadmap for implementation of MODULARIZATION of the construction process in synchronization with other project activities. To achieve this, various design tools were used for CAD & CAE so as to expedite various activities in a synchronized manner and interoperability between various design tools made it a lot easier to achieve the task in hand within the strict schedule and saving 2.25 times the cost of designing with another method.

As the project is an expansion of an already running ...
