Communication is one of the most important aspects of human life. The world has been turned into a global village after the integration of communication technologies with the Internet. And of all the different communication technologies available, email is considered as one of the most pervasive forms of communication. Emails have become a norm of communicating with each other replacing letters completely. Even after other technologies such as social networking are also taking hold over the Internet world, email remains the most ubiquitous form of business communication.
However, all of these technologies can be of no use to the ...

This design concept provides a key component of a solar concentrated combined heat and power (CHP) system for saving primary energy consumption in cold climate zones. The energy for residential space heating and hot water supply in climate zone 5 in the United States requires a significant amount of primary energy from legacy resources; reaching 4.67 Quads alone in 2013. I will develop a unique wall-mounted system that consists of electric power generation by thermoelectric (TE) and heat generation for heating tap water simultaneously. Approximately 60% of solar energy is collected in hot water and 5% will be generated ...
Waste management has become one of the crucial concerns in today's world. One of the best ways to handle it is to segregate waste at the primary level. This model deals with segregating dry, wet and metal waste using a low power msp430 microcontroller. When waste is detected in the bin, an inductive proximity sensor is used to detect whether its metal waste or not. If not, the respective density of the waste is measured (wet waste having more) and the waste materials are dumped into their respective slots using a conveyor belt which runs on a 12v DC servo ...
Wind power has become an important source of renewable energy. We often hear and see many types of windmills where innovators are seeking to reach the highest possible efficiency and provide greater electrical energy.
But is it possible to produce water in addition to electric power by wind power? After a long search done as a result of brainstorming, we came to the idea of developing a vertical axis turbine air and add a certain kind of mesh that is able to collect water from fog and store it in a collection tank, in addition to the production of electricity.

This design is for rural areas with no pipe access to potable water.
It is extremely simple, it's basically a plastic container with a big opening to inlet the "dirty" water and a smaller one from where the clean comes out.
The dirty water stays in a large surface container while the clean in a deep small surface area. The filtering would happen by simple condensation on a glass portion of the container placed slanting that would allow droplets to accumulate drift and drop into the small surface container. To help heat up the dirty water section an aluminum ...

WindFurnace.com proposes an improved Wind Furnace (UMass circa 1972-1985) resulting in reduced cost and complexity of past wind driven heating systems.
WindFurnace.com is not based on electricity generation but converts rotational energy, from a wind turbine, directly into heat through use of a dynamic heat generator (DHG) manufactured by Island City Engineering of Merrill, Wisconsin. A DHG is a hydro-dynamic rotary device that creates heat through fluid shearing (Fig. 1). A DHG can convert rotation to heat at efficiency levels greater than 85%.
Vertical axis wind turbines are well suited for this application because they deliver ...
We are in the sustainable energy business. By “taking the factory to the forest” we convert wood waste into liquid hydrocarbons from which refineries can make gasoline, diesel and aviation fuel.
Our Mobile Energy Conversion (MEC) systems enjoy a cost structure as much as 50% lower than competitive biofuel producers. A fully-operational MEC will transform at least 100 tons of standard wood chips into 11,000 gallons of sustainable liquid hydrocarbons per day.
The MECs will be owned and operated by ESN or its forest industry partners. In one year, each MEC can produce 4 million gallons ...
This patent filled topic deals with pest control. ZE-CU-RE stands for zero current repellent. The existing model of mosquito repellent is based on heating a repellent liquid using a carbon rod. The rod is heated by means of electricity. The drawback of existing mosquito repellent systems is it uses electricity for heating while their are so many equipment which produce heat as a waste while working. Next the existing system cannon distribute the fumes evenly in the room. Ceiling fan is one such equipment which was identified. It produce a lot of waste heat and also it can distribute ...
