Overheard medical marijuana growers discussing high electric bills and that their air conditioners run even when it is freezing outside. They do enriched CO2 growing which boosts yields but precludes exchanging air with the outdoors.
The obvious solution was to switch to LED grow lights. But that still dumps a lot of heat into the grow space. Unlike the traditional grow lights (HPS) which emit heat radiant in all directions, LEDs emit most of their heat off of the back side via conduction and with COB LEDs this heat is emitted in a concentrated area. Capturing this heat while ...
Energy transmission without any cord in between to the appliances.
Electricity is transmitted via electromagnetic methods in certain limits. For equipments used in a room, for example in a kitchen or a barber shop etc. which people are living in it's better to use a softer means.
I use in my project the sound frequencies to transmit the power to the equipment being used in hand. There is a transmitter on the wall up, sound is transmitted, a sonic receiver in the instrument receives and changes it to current for the instrument to work.

The main concern of the future is the natural resources which are being consumed rapidly with greed undermining the consequences.The use of fertilizers may improve yields today but the impact is vast on soil texture and fertility. Also, it affects the ecosystem immensely. Today we have a wide range of sensors within micro sizes and large networks to communicate and control remotely and efficiently. Extending these resources to protect and restore soil health and Eco-balance plant/tree is supplied only the deficit mineral and not dozed with fertilizers and chemicals.
To understand the model I will briefly explain the two main ...

In recent years, it was discovered that the power of the sun can be collected and stored, to be used on a global scale with the purpose of eventually replacing the conventional sources of energy. As the world is turning its focus to cleaner power, solar energy has seen a significant rise in importance.
SolaVi project is based on an airplane with superior flight characteristics and outstanding structural integrity that has the ability to recharge during flight. The conventional method today uses fuel for aviation. The sustainable method is to use solar cells to collect the radiation and ...
Solar energy is a primary source of energy which is abundant in nature. It is an efficient renewable energy source, which may be used for various applications ranging from electrical energy generation through photovoltaic to cooking food through a solar cooker. Non-renewable energy sources such as the fossil fuels will be exhausted in the near future and hence, we have to maximize use of solar energy. In the present idea, the thermal component of the solar spectrum is efficiently utilized in a very simple manner, which may be used for various cooking and heating applications. The funnel-like structure of ...
Segregation of waste is thefirst and most important step in waste management and environmental preservation. It allows for better disposal of waste and encourages more recycling and reuse of matter. Lack of segregation is the root cause of clogged landfills, blocked drains, soil and water pollution and can hinder the entire process of waste disposal, recycling and reuse. To reduce the effort required to segregate waste, many cities and airports have employed bins with partitions for different types of waste. It has, however, failed to work, since users do not take the effort to dispose of the ...
In 2016, one of the worst refugee crisis around the globe was at its peak due to the civil war in Syria. The crisis has resulted in over 4 million refugees who are homeless once they reach their host countries. Due to their large numbers, governments and agencies are unable to provide them with houses in time and they are left to strive in camps and shelters exposed to extreme climate and social problems. Even when there are solutions available, they are too costly and take too long to be implemented.
As civil engineers we felt the need to utilize ...
This submittal addresses further development of Carbon Blocks per provisional patent BJR 17-001 Prov, Carbon Blocks Made from Photosynthetic Plant Biomass for Long Term Sequestration of the Carbon from Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide, and Process for Manufacture (4/5/17). These blocks provide an extremely simple, but effective, measurable, and immediate method of direct removal of the green house gas (GHG) carbon dioxide (CO2) from earth’s atmosphere via conversion to plant based carbon (C) biomass by photosynthesis (specifically, in the form of fast growing, minimal maintenance weeds) and long term storage (sequestration) of the dried and ground plant matter and associated carbon ...

Aero Vitae is a system to solve the interconnected issues of air quality and water purification. We propose using a cascade system of organic digesters and aeroponics to directly dispose of city waste water and airborne particulate. Indirect benefits will be a local cooling effect and oxygen enrichment.
The first stage will be similar to normal water treatment, the separation of the solids from the waste water. The solids will first be treated in a high efficiency methane digester, which will be used to provide a high grade fuel for the facility, and general electricity. After ...
Infill panels and partitions are widely used non-structural elements in reinforced concrete buildings, characterized by a significant seismic vulnerability as testified by disastrous collapses observed during recent earthquakes, for both in-plane and out-of-plane actions. The most advanced building codes foresee mandatory verifications of these elements, both when designing a new building and when assessing the seismic adequacy of an existing one. Moreover, recent evaluations have shown that, after low-intensity earthquakes, damage of non-structural parts strongly influences repair costs for typical multi-storey buildings. In this occasion an innovative concept for infill panels and partitions is presented, in which (either concrete ...
