Paper-Saver(TM) ink is a disappearing ink for inkjet printers. The ink erases itself after three weeks so that paper can be reused, providing pollution-free paper. It is sold as 3rd party replacement ink cartridges.

Today paper is not what it used to be. It’s not the best tool for writing, storing information, or transmitting information. Those functions have gone digital. So why do we still consume office paper at a higher per-capita rate than before the advent of computers? Why is the average document printed 5 times? Why hasn’t Business Week’s 1975 prediction of the paperless office come true? The answer is that paper hasn’t been replaced by screens; paper has become a screen. For some it’s a screen ...

USA alone produces 254 million tons of trash and only 34.3 % percent of that is recycled. Maximum amount of the trash is dumped in Landfills, of which only few are left and that too with a life of 5-10 years. Moreover, in USA, people living below the 50% poverty level are required to pay more than 35% of their annual income for their energy bills on an average. Moreover, on a larger scale According to "ACTION4ENERGY," a United Nations Development Programme, about 1.3 billion people worldwide live without electricity. There are also 3 billion people living without clean cooking facilities i.e. cooking in open fire wood stove, out of which more than 4.3 million people have already died ...

Swarm Power & the Power-Blox 200 series

Power-Blox develops, produces and distributes intelligent swarm electrification solutions. It has developed a technology (Swarm Power) which allows the setup of a swarm-grid with a decentralized architecture and no centralized control. The system is self-learning and self-regulating; it regulates power production, storage and distribution in the grid intelligently and autonomously.

The Power-Blox 200 series is a modular energy system producing AC power from 200W up to the multiple Kilowatt range which serves as a “portable socket” to off-grid energy demands. It is plug & power and requires no configuration, specific know-how or maintenance. It consists of intelligent energy cubes with an integrated battery (available as lead or Lithium Ion version). Moreover, it allows ...

Our pyrolysis plant, Bio-Alternative (BA), delivers a solution to the growing waste problem worldwide. Our design is unique in its vertical construction and for the first time it is possible to not only recycle pelleted organic pieces, but to pyrolyze any type of organic waste (wood, feces, even plastics) and use the output materials (raw oil, biogas and biochar) as a renewable energy source (biogas and raw oil), resp. to apply biochar in teh soil as a strategy for co2-mitigation, as well as to increase soil fertility by applying either biochar or directly terra preta (biochar mixed with humus and compost). This design is novel, as the newest insights of scientific research have been included and it is the ...

From the diagram have a similar construct that is reflectant to radiation on the inside and have a airtight seal at the entrance of the construct that allows radiation to pass through. Then have a complete vacuum on the inside. Now All the coloured arcs have origins at the similarly coded numbers. Then where the arcs meet the edge , the edges must be rounded incliding the edges of the flat slate. Then at the point E a ray of radiation S enters the construct and as it reflects around the loop, the angle of reflection becomes more and more acute, until it strikes the flat slate and then becomes more obtuse such that it does not exit the ...

Reflow creates sustainable 3D printing materials with heart and precision. We transform local waste streams into premium material to fuel the 3D printing revolution. While 3D printing is taking off we have an unique opportunity to make sure this industry is zero-waste and a true driver of a fully circular future. Local manufacturing, done with locally sourced sustainable materials.

Over the last 50 years, we have grown industries that have become addicted to plastics. In 2014 alone 311 million tonnes of plastic was produced. And this production is expected to double over the next 20 years. As less that 14% of plastics are recycled, enormous amounts of it are seeping into the oceans, polluting the lands and entering our ...

Currently, it is very near impossible to remove oil sheen from water. Typically, a sheen of oil remains after the majority of spilled oil is recovered and removed from a body of water. The current methods consist of using materials made from polypropylene such as oil absorbent pads to remove as much oil as possible or to vacuum the water and oil mixture into a vessel for proper disposal. Typical methods will leave a small amount of oil that is commonly visible as a sheen.

The combination of a lightweight nylon spunbond fabric to polypropylene melt blown pads or polypropylene spunbond will allow the removal of oil sheen from water. Nylon is both hydrophilic and oleophilic. Nylon fabrics currently ...

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 & disturbance while take off & landing. The friction required for braking is very low as and uses huge energy for ...

PURPOSE:
Standards continue to evolve on lower emissions for internal combustion engines, based on technology advancements and regulatory requirements. Adopting best practices and following manufacturer guidelines on ethanol fueling will further help reduce damage to equipment and the environment.

The RIGHT MIX STRIPS™ are rapid and simple to use test strips; they detect ethanol percentage levels in gasoline, that is commonly used in two-stroke and four-stroke engines. The test is conducted by immersing the end of the strip in a sample of fuel and obtaining the result from the position of the ethanol line, which moves up the strip until it reaches the applicable ethanol content rating.

ADVANTAGES:
1. Improve the Diagnostic Process
As part of a standard diagnostic ...

[0001] Some roof systems provide vegetation growth on a roof of a building or other structure, which roof systems may be referred to as green roof systems. Typical green roof systems include a waterproof membrane applied to the surface of the roof, a layer of soil or other growing medium provided on top of the membrane, and vegetation provided in the soil. The green roof systems may result in lower energy costs for the building, improved roof appearance, noise reduction and increased roof life, and reduction in building’s temperature.

[0002] Some green roof systems can be used for filtering rain water. The rain water passes through the vegetation of the green roof system and enters a storage ...
