Hello, Everyone. This is team Blue Energy Australia. My name is David Huang. I am the founder of Blue Energy Australia. I am also an inventor. My invention is a heat engine, which can be used in automobiles for transport, electricity generation, renewable energy storage, emission reduction, industrial and mining business etc.

My invention for this competition is Blue Energy Thermal Engine (BETE). It is an invention with high potential to disrupt many sectors of human civilization, such as the car industry. It is an engine with high energy efficiency. This engine is the first in human history to apply leverage solution to modulate none constant force due in gas expansion and compression into a constant output force. This ...

Present galvanic electrode architecture is characterized by low electrode area specific current density and long battery recharge interval. Factors limiting secondary battery current may be ion exchange between electrodes and/or electron impedance between solid phase coatings and metal current collectors. A new approach to electrode structure replaces contact resistance in the interface separating the solid phase and adjacent metal with alternative conduction pathways to greatly lower resistance to electron flow. Electrodes comprise a cohesive carbon membrane of nonwoven CNT or graphene sheet, loaded with virtually any faradaic or catalytic chemistry as a carbon surface coating or lodged and immobilized by carbon fiber. Examples are widely reported in the literature. Membranes attached as pellicles to a metal surface in accordance ...

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%. A “Smart City” equipment location would eliminate reinspection of secure luggage, excess travel time between locations, and parking needs. This ...

Piece of wood surrounded by mud doesn’t burn easily. In fact, after becoming dry, it will be an insulating layer which more or less prevents burning.

This property will be an perfect solution to stop the spreading fire during forest fire fights. Instead of using water alone, which has proved in different occasions unable to stop intense forest.

Fires the idea is to add fine earth which is an abundant material, to the water pumped, and by surrounding burned trees by mud obtained it will delimit ravaged zone, at a given distance, and create such as barrier more or less resistant. And a priori, it can no longer directly attack tree trunks and branches but indirect combustion may ...

If the efficiency of a wind turbine is increased, then more power can be generated thus decreasing the need for expensive power generators that cause pollution. This would also reduce the cost of power for the common people. The wind is literally there for the taking and doesn't cost any money. Power can be generated and stored by a wind turbine with little or no pollution. If the efficiency of the common wind turbine is improved and widespread, the common people can cut back on their power costs immensely. The blades on vertical axis windmills are designed to give resistance to the wind and are as a result pushed by the wind.

ADVANTAGES

• Suitable for low wind speed ...

The proposed technology is a revolutionary vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) that solves three major problems associated with wind turbines today. The first is high manufacturing/maintenance costs, the second is low efficiency, and the third is safety in stormy weathers. The developed turbine, fig (1) consists of a disc(s) and flat surface blades that can rotate about vertical shafts parallel to the main turbine shaft. The blades can only rotate relative to the disc(s) in one direction, and are restrained from rotating in the other direction by pin(s) (or other means) attached to the disc(s). As the wind flows over the turbine blades the restrained blades generate rotational torques, while the non-restrained blades are in opposing position to the ...

Nearly 70% of the earth is covered by water. Only 2.5% of it is fresh & only 1% freshwater is accessible. The world is facing a scarcity of water - termed as water crisis. Wastage of water is seen and documented by various agencies. In urban lifestyle, one of the areas where water is wasted unknowingly is in gardens, terrace gardens. On terrace gardens excess water is sprayed on plants which runs off the pots. This is a huge loss of water. The intent is to control the water going to plants. This is achieved by drip irrigation, controlled through digital timer, driven by battery charged through solar panel. Drip irrigation gives an obvious advantage of watering the plants ...

Problem: Heat generated from carbon-based fuel combustion or nuclear reactions consumes limited resources, and creates waste products harmful to the environment and to living organisms.

Innovative
Solution: An unprecedented development reveals a method that creates heat inexpensively by efficiently releasing the energy stored within water molecules. Water as a fuel presents a readily abundant, low cost source of heat energy. This heat, when used to power a steam turbine generator, produces electricity, without the environmental hazards and operational complications (obtaining, handling and delivering, for example) of using carbon-based or nuclear fuels.

Our laboratory unit demonstrates this remarkable thermal plasma-based process; it is an Ionized Gas Reactor (IGR). Early development of this patented and patent pending process ...

A wave-powered electrical generator (WPEG) of novel design is proposed. WPEG operates by harnessing energy from the water waves, i.e., from an environmentally friendly source of energy. Briefly, WPEG consists of a geared motor-generator, accommodated by a double-cone, which is rolling on two eccentric circular rails. Eccentricity causes a divergent-convergent effect on the rails span (Fig. 1). During a motion toward divergent rails, potential energy of the double-cone is transformed into the kinetic energy of rotation and translation, i.e., into the energy associated to the “spin” of the double-cone around its axis of symmetry, and to the “revolution” of the double-cone around the center of the rails (Fig. 1). During a motion toward convergent rails, oppositely, the kinetic energy ...

The opposing wind forces are completely neglected with the help of a deflector such that the speed of the turbine shaft is increased faster than normal, even at very low wind speed (1m/s). Almost all the wind turbines extract only 50 to 60% of total wind power due to low speed. This is due to the wind resistance in the blades. Wind turbines are generally located at a higher altitude nearly 100 feet above the ground level in order to acquire a large wind power. The main objective of our project is to increase the speed of the rotor shaft even at low speed of wind (1 m/s), using a modified design in order to increase the power production. ...
