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.
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 ...
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 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 ...
The Underwater Electricity Generator works on principle of transforming Pressure and Kinetic Energy of water into Electrical Energy by rotary motion, which is first of its kind.
- Target of 8000 GW
- Apprehend Pressure and Kinetic Energy.
- Continuous power generation irrespective of weather and load variations.
- Something new and unique, which shall be powerful, efficient and useful for at-least 200 years.
- Primary influence is of Pressure Energy acting on large hydrofoil areas at varying depths.
- As waves and tides have periodic occurrence of ‘2’ every 24 hours, hence termed secondary influence, ...
According to the EPA, every weekend about 54 million Americans mow their lawns, using more than 15,000,000 gallons of gas (that’s more the 800 million annually) and producing tons of air polluting volatile organic compounds and nitrogen oxides. More than 325,000 gallons (that’s 17,000,000 annually) are spilled just filling them up – that’s more than what was spilled by the Exxon Valdez disaster.
Studies have shown that one gas mower running for an hour emits the same amount of pollutants as eight new cars driving 55 miles in an hour.
Replacing 500 gas mowers with electric or non-powered mowers would ...
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 ...
Until now generating plasmas required large amounts of energy. Cold plasma technology strongly reduced the amount of energy required for plasma generation and modern techniques makes it now affordable.
Our αNC PLASMA technique could even more reduce the energy consumption and separate elements (individual atoms) at molecular level and re-arrange them in other metallic bonding, elemental or compound molecules. This opens a variety of applications.
αlpha solutions successfully developed their own new cold plasma in such a way as to sustain cold plasma indefinitely (cold plasma "channel"), utilizing uniform large areas of plasma in a small plasma unit or ...
