Safe drinking water is the main scarcity after any disaster – whether natural or manmade. In many situations surface water is available but is contaminated with harmful diarrhoeal germs of diseases like cholera, typhoid, paratyphoid, dysentery, etc. If the water is not contaminated by industrial wastes and insecticides, and if it is not saline (a problem only in coastal areas), destruction of diarrheal pathogens can render the water drinkable. For this, one needs to raise the water temperature to 60degC and maintain it for 30 minutes, the process being called Pasteurisation. At higher temperatures, the time required goes down ...

The proposed design of Optical Detector Sensors System [2 Sets of Photo1], implemented with the purpose of its functioning as an essential device, in a solar locating and tracking System [and similar applications], whose primary function is to orientate a solar collector to face the Sun, with azimuthal tracking of 270 deg [90 deg, dark/night, assumed, azimuthal solid angle ] and altitudinal 90 deg
[acting independently of time, astronomical data aid or limit switches and avoiding “closing the circle”].
For this tracking system the requirement is of 2 such Sensor Set structures. One fixed on the ground [90 ...

This new-technology electricity generator functions uniquely according to known principles of electromagnetic induction, and requires no external power or fuel. It is patented (US 8,847,720). The power output depends upon the frequency of the inducing current, making a very small generator extremely powerful. It is modular and scalable; as there is no fuel, there is no danger of fire or explosion, and there is no carbon footprint. Having no moving parts, practically no maintenance is required,., Finally, here is the solution to the world's requirement for power, with no carbon footprint, and no more need of fossil fuels!
This design provides a sustainable transportation solution based on 4th-generation airship technology that can serve remote communities and resource developments year-round and reduce their freight costs.
Approximately 70% of Canada’s landmass lies north of the permanent road-network. In this area the only year-round transport is small airplanes on gravel runways. Temporary ice roads do allow tractor-trailers to bring in heavier supplies, but climate change is shortening their season and decreasing their reliability. Transport airships would provide year-round freight services equivalent to truckloads at roughly one-quarter the cost of airplanes. Airships also require minimal ground infrastructure and can travel anywhere.
Canada has ...

Sustainably feeding the planet is becoming increasingly difficult. 800 million people go hungry everyday. 1/4 of the world lacks proper nutrients to live a healthy life, and the world's population is expected to reach 9 billion people by the year 2050. With these inevitable stresses on the agriculture industry, farming practices are becoming extremely inefficient, degrading precious lands and soil, creating wastes far greater than its production, and using 70 percent of the world's water consumption. At this rate, we will need twice as much water to meet food demands by 2050.
A sustainable food solution must be developed ...

Every day the usage of polymer based materials are increasing. Water bottles, one time use bags, food packaging and wrappers etc., are unavoidable. These materials are dumped into open land and causes environmental problems like soil pollution, blockage of canal, ingestion by wild life, long time for degradation, water pollution etc.
In India alone the usage of plastics for various applications is around 8.5 million tons for the financial year 2013. It is growing at the rate of 8 to 10% per year.
The methodology to process these polymer wastes and converting into a product ...

Not a drop of water should be wasted!
Every day as you turn on your shower and let it run to heat up, gallons of water are wasted. Depending on the shower, in just one minute as many as 2-5 gallons of clean water can be swept down the drain.
Aguawell allows you to collect 1.6 gallons of clean water as your shower heats up, to use later for watering plants, flushing the toilet, or other water needs.
Aguawell is simple to use: Simply place the Aguawell under the flow of the shower or bath. The water will run over the ...
State regulations require that floating roof tanks control emissions when they are cleaned. My company developed a method to control emissions and recover the gases back to liquid for recycling.
The system makes zero pollution and recovers by condensing the gases.
Alternative systems burn the gases and make huge amounts of CO2 and other products of combustion (smog) which is released at ground level.
We have recovered just about 1,4million pounds of condensate that could be recycled because it is pure cargo - similar to distilling whisky.
Our system works with gasoline ...
When i started putting pencil on paper, i really didn't think too much about the fact that it is a very unique vehicle that is powered by electricity. My major focus was on the environmental issue. The global economy is in crisis – a crisis which is already putting car sales in jeopardy. Therefore, I planned a design that would not only be reliable but eco-friendly. Electric and hybrid vehicle is designed to address the climate issue. The concept of Eco-friendly with the IOT solutions isn't known to many. This design is constructed to make a self-driving car that will look ...
