The present photovoltaic (PV) cells use only about half of the light spectrum provided by the sun because the infrared part is not utilized to produce electricity. Without storage or backup generation, PV systems are not a continuous and reliable power source. As a result,
Natural Fibers such as Bamboo, Banana Trees, Coconut Husks, Coconut splinter and other such fibrous vegetation systems have the advantages of ready availability, are renewable, and have excellent strength-to-weight ratio. By combining with appropriate Polymers and other ingredients,as well as by hybridizing with glass fiber systems,
Transportation is one of the basic needs of human life. Most of our transportation is dependent on automobiles powered by fossil fuels. But the fossil fuels are being depleted and emissions from automobiles are causing environmental issues like greenhouse effect, ozone layer depletion, acid rain and pollution.
The problem we're trying to solve is that currently Tractor-Trailers get 6.5 miles per gallon - and spend (on average) $48,000 per year on fuel (per tractor). The trucking industry spends $150B per year on fuel in the U.S., and 6.2% of all U.S. emissions come from trucks.
