Sustainable Technologies - 2016
My design idea relates to energy engineering and more particularly to the alternative energy technology of getting power from the repulsive/attractive force of permanent magnets with no other input.
The potential benefits of this design idea is getting renewable energy along with using sunlight, wind, tides, plant growth, and geothermal heat as sources of energy.
There were many attempts to convert the repulsive/attractive force of permanent magnets into rotational movement and build a magnet motor (International Publication Numbers WO 2006/045333 A1, WO 2009/019001 A2, WO 2009/088144 A1 and others). We can see them in operation ...
In this year, India has faced unprecedented drought and water scarcity. Rivers/ dams dried up affecting agriculture and may impact GDP, inflation, growth rate etc.
Can we take control and make sure that our rivers never run dry; dams are always filled with water? It will be a game changer if we can make this happen in a short span of time. This will be true game changer for the Indian economy. Agriculture will improve. No more farmer suicides. We can have many cycles of crops. Food shortages can be ended. GDP will be driven ...
Earth attracts objects creating pressure on everything on its surface. When something takes in latent heat it pushes against enormous atompheric pressure to expand this expansion or combustion in case of fuel later when condenses creates a vacuum equal to tons of atmospheric pressure which can be effectively used.
ideal at 100 degrees celcius (373K)
latent heat water=2.257mj/kg
heat produced by coal =24mj/kg
it can produce hence about 18 metre cube of vapor
or lift the atmosphere for 1m in a cylinder with piston dia of 4.8 m
which is of 18 m2 in area hence about ...
What problem does your design idea solve?
Developing regions and crisis areas produce a significant amount of municipal solid waste (MSW) but lack the infrastructure and central organization to process said waste. Technology and communications present a need for electricity in the same regions. The µW2E provides a decentralized means to both process MSW and simultaneously create electricity.
How is your idea novel or an improvement on what is currently available in the marketplace?
The µW2E utilizes simple technologies with few moving parts. It is lightweight, has a small footprint, and requires low maintenance. The µW2E can incinerate both ...
Plastics are an important part of our daily life, starting from the tooth brush, water bottles, plastic bags -- it is as important as air.These plastics are posing a serious threat to the environment due to lack of proper recycling and waste treatment measures. Especially in India where open dumping and open burning of plastics is common. Open burning of plastic leads to release of many poisonous and carcinogenic gases. Here I am recommending a new method to eliminate the threat of plastic waste.
In simple words, we are burning plastic inside a microwave oven. But as ...
Mobile phones have become a hugely important tool for almost everyone, even in remote parts of the world such as rural Africa where banking over SMS is very popular. However in these places it can also be difficult and expensive to charge a phone. There is not always a stable power grid nearby and much of the power is generated from dirty fuels. The Mini Pedal Power Plant aims to solve this problem by providing a mobile, bicycle powered charging solution for cell phones and other small devices. Bicycles are prevalent in rural Africa and there is service and ...
The Momentum Drive Theorem Device is rather unique when compared to how complex an internal combustion engine functions. However, this device is still the only one of its kind which makes it exceptional.
The Momentum Drive Components:
1. Containment Ring - The containment ring provides a stable platform for the device.
2. Electro-Magnetic Field Generators (EMFG) - The utilization of Electro-Magnetic Field Generators provide the large induction fields necessary for electrical power generation and braking.
3. Soft Torsion Actuators - The cables are anchored to opposite points on the Containment Ring; these cables are responsible for the ...
Natura is a simple product which is inspired by a tree. The way water falls on leaves and gives a feeling of purity. The same way water falls on this product and you slowly see the water seeping down through the green filter sponge.
It passes through a charcoal filter and pure water drips into the water collecting container.
One needs to push down and squeeze out the water.
Then you can sip on some ...
Shellfish ... crustaceans and mollusks ... use mainly calcium carbonate as a structural material in their shells. Usually thought of as serving a mechanical protective purpose I suggest that it is used in a natural anti-fouling mechanism. A shell covering in both cases allows the CaCO3 to dissolve slowly creating an un-stirred layer in which the dissolved carbonate combines with H2O to produce HCO3 and OH which raises the pH of the un-stirred layer. This proceeds fast enough to maintain a high pH 100 micron layer and slow enough to allow the shell to survive until replaced by molting ...
Autonomous, mobile and decentralised power supply for the electrical operation of lighting equipment for information boards, of sensors and electrical components, of microsystems, smart phones and mobile computer technology is increasingly gaining importance. Under the spatial conditions of solar radiation autonomous power generation by solar cells is in many cases suitable to perform this task. In this case solar panels are used that generate electric energy in place and make it available via intermediate storage and an electronic management system in due time with the required current and voltage.
Up to now, the solar panels in use have ...
