1 Nature of technology/product. The HI-Light reactor being developed at Cornell University is a solar-thermocatalytic “reverse combustion” technology that enables the conversion of CO2 and water to methanol and other high-value hydrocarbons. The innovative claim of the HI-Light reactor design derives from the concurrent optimization of light-coupling and catalyst availability. In the HI-Light design, the tubes are internal light-guiding rods with specially designed scattering surfaces that enable deep and efficient penetration of the solar radiation captured from a parabolic light concentrator into the reactor. The reagents and products flow through the shell outside the rods. The optical energy focused ...
Gridlock in and around megacities is already at crisis levels and will escalate exponentially into the future unless viable solutions are found to solve the problems. Pollution from idling motor vehicles aggravates global warming problems.
Mega cities which border on waterways have a solution which is immediate and much less expensive than other proposals which would take decades to implement The judicious use of hovercraft on waterways offers a solution which can be implemented now and show positive results within a remarkably short period of time.
The study we made was to do with Toronto (Canada) which has gridlock ...
2 years ago, A turkish airliner airbus A330 skidded off the runway in Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. On board 224 passengers were unharmed except from some minor bruises . The airbus slipped off the runway and ran into the grass field next to the runway. The continuous drizzling rain and the wet runway covered with fog were responsible for the landing gears to skid off the runways.
Since the traditional landing gears have very little contact surface dur to the spherical shape, there is an unequal distribution of weights in different tires causing an imbalance & ...
Wave energy has huge capacity which needs to be explore more. In India, total capacity of Wave energy is 41 GW. As compared to wind, solar & hydel power, Wave has two challenges; it is not continuous & energy carrying media, i.e. water, doesn’t have a uni-directional motion. There are various techniques followed in harnessing wave energy which are solving one common challenge- “How to get continuous output of power from discrete wave power”. Predominantly there are two techniques followed; Pumping water from wave energy to a reservoir & releasing to continuous power generation. Second,generate electricity directly ...

Large wind blade surfaces embedded with flexible Solar Panel can generate more energy out of the same system. For example, Shrouded design type with flexible solar panel has been shown in the diagram. Depending up on the area of wind turbine blade either horizontal or vertical or shrouded, the same system can generate more power output.
Also, such systems’ tower can be installed in the shallow seabed. A fixed propeller can be attached in the tower with gears, while gears provide the ability to rotate. It is to harvest wave energy. This amalgamated design can harvest solar, wind & ...

First and Last miles “Joining Airports with City Centers.”
Evaluated as suitable by the Ports Council, Awarded the Sustainable FLORIDA 2015 as a Green Building Finalist! We at Sky Train Corporation (STC) offer a system which combines green transit with alternative energy. A wider vehicle that can supply more than subway capacity, with shorter boarding platforms, at double limiting speed, and comfort, and that offers an automated secure luggage handling option.
The mostly elevated beam structure, combined with state-of-the-art energy handling, greatly improves land use, that [entirely eliminates] rail crossing fatalities, and reduces energy consumption by up to 90%. ...
ZERO-WASTE ZERO-CARBON BUSINESS-MODEL (ZW-ZC-BM)
[A Quadruple Impact Development (QID) paradigm that simultaneously answers the twin-problems of Global Warming and Poverty (GWP)]
THE PROBLEM: Global Warming and Poverty (GWP) are corollary in that both are simultaneously increasing due to the same basic cause: Wastage and Over consumption by the minority who control almost all human resources and governance. The disparity is such that about 15% of the population enjoy 85% of world GDP; and the balance 85% are able to enjoy just 15%. Further as this disparity is continually increasing due to the “richer” class wanting to overs end and ...
Triboelectric generators (TEG) or triboelectric nanogenerators (TENG) are the emerging effective wasted mechanical-electrical energy conversion devices. This energy source can be used powerfully in light emission and energy storage for various electronic applications.
The principle is based on triboelectric effect and electrostatic induction between two triboelectric surfaces. It is generally constructed following the cycling contact-separation mode of two triboelectric materials. The triboelectric material can be a metal, non-metal, or compound materials, which can electrically charge by the contact and friction with other triboelectric materials. The output performance of the TEG/TENG strongly depends on the contact area and friction between ...

Two types of solar panels are generally available: photovoltaic electrical generation and water-heating.
My idea is to combine the two into a single panel: the water panel atop the solar cells. I have discussed this with a number of vendors, and nobody sells nor is aware of a panel with this combination of functions of operation. The water panel would be transparent, allowing sunlight to reach the photovoltaic panel.
Please note in my drawings that the top of the water panel (the side facing the sun) is arched, with the intention being to shape the panel as a "lens", ...

The major problem nowadays faced by the countries is oil spill in the ocean through by which oil is transported which leads to loss in biodiversity of marine species as well as for humans. This Research project we developed the prototype of the boom and device for Oil Spill removal using the use of Natural Adsorbents on the Sorbent Boom. In the Existing work, the use NATURAL ADSORBENTS is very rare. why? Because the current cleanup technologies used like manual cleanup, insitu burning have safety concerns, expensive to operate aswell as not greener one.Already recent research were done on ...
