This is an idea of a tree which produces electricity upon planting in specified areas. Its name is Energy Tree. And it is basically a type of vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT).

Its speciality over the other VAWT is that it can work at all the times, irrespective of seasons and specific time period of a year.

In today’s scenario, all the petrol and diesel engines in the whole world converts only about 14-30% of chemical energy of its respective fuel into mechanical movement of their vehicles. Remaining amount of energy obtained is wasted unused by means of engine losses (exhaust heat, radiator losses, pumping, internal friction, etc.,), driveline losses, rolling resistance losses, braking losses, accessories losses, ...

Engines are the commonly power producing machine running on either Petrol or Diesel or Gas. Engines are widely used in automobiles.

Newer technologies have made engines lighter and super-efficient. But still there are a lot more things that can happen.

Introducing the world's first “Engitronics”-Camless Engine. Engine made with mechanical and electronic technologies. Latest Electronics have made Engines and automobiles more efficient and reliable and powerful.

Here in Engitronics Camshaft part of Engine cylinder head had been totally replaced by Automatic Actuated injectors as shown in figure.

Currently most of the engine are using direct injection system. Which spray fuel directly in the chamber, and air is sucked through the inlet valve.

Here ...

At Cavitational Energy Systems LLC we are able to completely convert large amounts of heat energy at very cold temperatures (~30K) to electricity; using the heat energy in the ~30K to ambient temperature difference. The transmission of resultant Electric Energy across the cryogenic to ambient temperature gradient does not incur the loss normally associated with the transmission of Heat energy across the same temperature gradient. We are then able to use this electricity at ambient temperatures to power a vehicle/car at highway speeds. Once this process is started there is no need for a battery to power the electric vehicle as we are able to power the vehicle from the heat in the air; additionally device / process ...

The problem with a Savonius Rotor is that it has no torque, as the blades are only powering the shaft for 120 degrees of one turn, while for the remaining 240 degrees the blades are consuming energy. The Savonius Rotor micro mini wind turbine, with the blades being powered for the full 360 degrees, makes it the only micro mini wind turbine that can mounted on a house, without any of the disadvantages of a propeller type wind turbine, and still produce an effective electrical current to be connected to solar panels or a battery. Providing Clean, Free, Renewable energy at much cheaper than coal, with no environment problems. By the use of a wind shield and over head ...

Concrete production uses a considerable amount of natural resources that cannot be replaced or replenished. With landfills being created at an alarming rate compounded with the increased cost of dumping trash, the need for recycling has reached an all-time high. It is logical to try to find an acceptable replacement for material that is normally consumed with one that is typically thrown away in landfills. Thus, this study considers the use of recycled tire rubber as a fine aggregate in place of sand in concrete. Novel concrete materials with a unique balance of stiffness and toughness would be valuable in many new and existing applications. Due to the scale of the building and construction market, especially in regions such ...

Proposed prototype utilizes 1. centrifugal compressors/impellers, driven by 2. high speed electric motor, or 3. steam turbine, or 4. exhaust turbine/turbo, to draw high kinetic energy gas through, 5. electrically conductive diffusers, downstream; said diffusers applied with varying potentials of positive voltage to simultaneously cause arcing between over lapping diffuser plates; adding high heat to high kinetic energy gas to create molecular dissociation & free electrons; said electrons are attracted & extracted by by positive charged diffuser apparatus simultaneously creating negative electron energy potentials & a positive charge ion plasma in a continuous mass flow process; said plasma will contact , 6. discharge electrodes downstream & impose a positive potential onto electrodes; said electrodes will simultaneously draw electrons through ...

This is very simple.
An eductor is a very simple design, that in this case the "liquid impulsor" is a solution of Calcium Chloride (that is liquid at least under -50°C) to "disolve" CH4 Clathrates releasing the gas that will pump up a column of mud and gas. Gas is separated from mud. Mud is filtered, mud is return to sea and liquids are separated by solvents of our design in an enriched CaCl2 brine that is pumped to the eductor and water that is returned to the sea.

This design is simpler, cheaper and less contaminating than current method used for obtaining Shle ...

NASA Langley has developed a novel method of depositing metal and metal oxide nanoparticles onto various substrates (see ACS Nano, 3(4), 871–884 [2009]). It is rapid, scalable, and green since it does not require reducing agents or solvents. The process involves first mixing and then heating a metal salt (usually an acetate) with the desired substrate. Heating can be done by conventional thermal or microwave ovens. Conventional thermal processing takes several hours and requires an inert atmosphere, usually nitrogen. With microwave heating, the process is complete in a matter of seconds. The metal or metal oxide nanoparticles have potential use in catalysis. Metal particles on carbon for catalyzing the adsorption of mercury from the effluent of coal-fired power plants ...

Fiber Optic Photovoltaic Cell of my invention, solves the problem of mismatch layers of different semiconductors, also in real terms, allows you to use part of the long-term solar spectrum. The cell is constructed from semiconductive layers of specified intervals of energy applied to a side surface side by side on the transparent / fibre / core. Ray of light, consisting of many frequencies, bumping into the core of the cell is like fractionally absorbed through the filters, the individual layers of the respective energy gaps .Fiber Optic Photovoltai Cell can have a length from parts of a millimeter to several hundred meters. The individual cells are connected in pv modules with dimensions, for example. 1x2 m, on line, ...

Firefly is the world’s most advanced solar powered device for light and mobile charging where there is no power. Thus, Firefly is a better and safer life for rural dwellers.

Firefly has three different parts to provide the basic necessities. The central “brains” of the system is the main Firefly box. From a specially designed battery to carefully selected materials, everything about the Firefly screams “engineering”.

Firefly’s specially designed integral Lithium-ion battery coupled with a “smart board” protection board creates the most highly engineered, reliable and robust power storage solution available. The Lithium-ion cells, nine cells in all, are of the highest quality providing for the longest life available. Rated at 1,800 charge-discharge cycles, the battery will last over ...
