Providing clean water in humanitarian emergencies is essential, however few household water purification systems have been developed with this context in mind. In an emergency setting usability, durability, transportability, and cost arise as crucial aspects of purification systems design that sit alongside the vital pathogen filtering capacity of the technologies. Focusing on these features of purification systems, in addition to their filtering capabilities,is essential to improve water treatment in humanitarian emergencies.
In this study, flood water collected in a bucket (20 L) from nearby sources and 2.0 gram of MOSP (moringa seed powder, and shell powder) were added and ...

Andean indigenous people are settling in highland and low temperate valleys in which they are farmers using very ancient technology to optimize the land and water resources. About two million Aymara live in Bolivia, five hundred thousand in Peru, and one hundred thousand in Chile They built an agriculture systems with terracing, canals and irrigation works, with a sustainable production of organic foods. This landscape was completely modified by the modern society, introducing monoculture and chemicals, transforming agriculture without any consideration to environmental and social impact. Today, most of the people living in these valleys has a very low ...
A magnetic void (null spot) is created on a portion of inner hole of a ring magnet by absorbing North and South poles in that portion using small disc magnets having diameter equal to top and bottom surface width of ring magnet.
When a steel ball or spherical magnet is kept in that void, it moves away from the void towards stronger flux area (attraction). When small magnets are moved on the surface of ring magnet, the void also moves making the ball also to move on the inner hole.
Very interesting thing here is, the motion of the ...

The Magnetic Renewable Engine is a clean and green Mechanical Renewable Energy System powered by electricity. It is the combination of two systems, the Electromagnetic Reciprocating Engine and an Electrical Supply System.
The Electromagnetic Reciprocating Engine is the combustion engine without the combustion. The secret lies in “Can a magnetic force push down on a piston” which culminated into the development of the Magnetic Chamber. This research concluded with an US Patent #7,557,473. The Electromagnetic Reciprocating Engine uses Magnetic Energy from an electromagnet, which is powered by electricity, in the Magnetic Chamber to turn a crankshaft. The Magnetic Chamber ...

In retrospect the basic idea behind recycling, is to reuse materials from an existing structure or product in to a new structure or product. But recycling usually takes several stages over a long period of time. What If there was another way to achieve the same effect. Imagine a world where it would be possible for the broken fender of a car, to be reformed back in to its original shape in one step and with its structural performance intact and without the use of patches , glue or refill materials. Better yet let's take that concept a step ...

For rapid construction of hovercraft landing platforms at sea shore various compositions of oxychloride cement along with sea sand, melamine formaldehyde resin, guar gum and unsaturated polyester resins were prepared for optimization of the suitable composition with optimum compressive stregth and elastic modulus. Based on results obtained further optimization was progressed. Westergaard theory  was used to optimize the thickness of platform based on compressive strength achieved of Polymeric cement composite to bear the load of Hovercraft . The Differential Scanning Calorimetric DSC and Thermo-gravimetric TG Analysis were recorded for Guar gum- MF- OCC Composites to determine their thermal ...
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 ...

How MicroEVAP(TM) Works:
The MicroEVAP(TM) water purification system is able to process polluted water from any source with a low-pressure, low-temperature; tornado induced rapid-evaporation technology to treat contaminated water without chemicals, filters, or membranes. The system is designed to be ultralow in maintenance, has few moving parts, and is adaptable for scalability. It has been demonstrated to remove 95% of the contaminants at 95% throughput efficiency. The water purification technology which is based on a single pass, closed loop, mechanical vapor compression process that integrates an innovative tornadic air/water vapor flow field to achieve vaporization of a feed water stream. ...
Floating buoys are used for several purposes. Some platforms are composed of multiple floating modular cubes connected to each other and mostly used in a tied position to the shore to function as landing stages in order to provide sunbathing areas, to ease the diving for people and to provide easy access to shore from the small boats after docking. Another area in which these platforms are used is the pontoons made of concrete and pulled by motor vessels. Pontoons are mainly used for carrying the loads of big ships to the port or performing the maintenance works of ...

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 ...
