The persistence of insecticides and pesticides in the soil have made the availability of healthy food scarce on the Earth. The project focus on a sustainable solution to various problems in agriculture and food. The features of the projects have been listed below.

1. Soil-less agriculture- The project identifies that for the growth of the plant air, light, and nutrients are required, which in the present scenario is being provided by the soil. Under this project, the seedling is germinated in a sterilized and nutrient(both micro and macro nutrients are taken care)-rich coco peat which is a 1:1 blend of vermicompost and sand(Illustration1). Once it gets germinated (which will take 30 days), it's roots are dipped in an externally ...

Figure 1 shows a flow battery comprised of tanks 1 and 2. Tanks 1 contains liquid 4 and tank 2 contains liquid 6. These liquids 4 and 6 in tanks 1 and 2 are pumped past a membrane 5 held between two electrodes 8 and 10 in a reaction chamber 7. An ion exchange providing a flow of electric current occurs through the membrane 5 while both liquids 4 and 6 are circulating in their respective space as shown in figure 1. The flow battery can be recharged by flowing electricity through the battery.

If the liquids 1 and 2 are heated, the flow battery will produce more electrical energy. If the liquids 1 and 2 are cooled, the ...

Fluid dynamic generator -- same as an air conditioner except cold plates replace using a condenser and evaporator and many peltiers sandwiched between plates and a 12-24v, 40-80w compressor that switches from starting house power or batteries to the peltiers after run in time to get the plates cold and hot that turn peltiers to ...

EnerSysNet Canada Inc. (ESN) will bring the factory to the forest by developing a network of, mobile energy conversion (MEC) systems to produce infrastructure-compatible aviation, gasoline and diesel range liquid hydrocarbons from timber harvest trimmings and sawmill waste. Because this approach utilizes sustainable lignocellulosic biomass feedstocks “in situ” thereby drastically reducing the logistics expense, efficiently utilizing such waste (typically about 30% or the felled tree) and thus converting a liability into an asset, the MEC offers a win/win for the forestry industry and renewable energy. Its competitive advantages (modest capital cost, high throughput, greater yield and higher quality) represent a major breakthrough.

The MEC integrates a patent-pending ablative fast pyrolysis reactor with recently-developed hydroprocessing catalysts to yield up to ...

Green treasures paving bricks/slabs solve the problem of environmental pollution through innovative technology because they are manufactured from waste polymers and recycled tyres that are clogging drainage systems and littering the environment.

Potential Benefits
- It proffers solution to bad roads and potholes when used in road construction due to its waterproof nature.
- Creates massive employment for youth both direct and indirect jobs thereby reducing unemployment rates.
- offers good value for money due to its high tensile strength.

It is novel because we are making highly sustainable and environmentally friendly bricks from what has been tagged waste and menace to the society, however creating wealth from it i.e from waste to wealth and it reduces health risk, ...

Grow is a pendant lamp made of paper pulp. The lamp is made of four parts which easily can be attached or removed by hanging a bigger section onto the other. Since we’re moving and our living conditions are changing, it’s important that our interiors and products can adapt to new circumstances. Bigger, smaller, private or public rooms.

Paper pulp is 100% recyclable and renewable. If it’s clean enough it’s even combustible. When the user is done it can be recycled and made into new pulp products. It’s a lightweight material and since the shape is collapsible it’s more efficient for transport. Since pulp is a common packaging material it’s production cost would be low. This lamp could be ...

Problem:
CO2 emissions are a problem that cannot be ignored. Despite worldwide attempts at legislation and organization, experts predict that emissions will continue to climb 2% per year going forward. Coal and other hydrocarbon plants that generate power are some of the largest contributors of atmospheric CO2. State-sponsored resolutions to decrease CO2 emissions have proved costly. Business entities and municipalities are motivated to find novel, cost-effective solutions to both decrease current atmospheric CO2 and the current production of CO2 exhaust.

Solution:
With minor retrofitting to current hydrocarbon combustion plants, our Flue-Exhaust Recycle System will convert waste pollution into useful products and create enough additional electricity to power this process.

Installation of an outflow pipe at the base of the plant ...

During exercise on any gym equipment, all the human power is lost into the environment. The Human to Nanogrid (H2N) model utilizes human muscle power to produce electricity and then transmit this power to energy storage systems like a battery or a bank of supercapacitors or a hybrid storage system. Further, when several of such machines are connected, the power can be input into the main electricity power grid for distribution. Human to Nanogrid machine uses a low rpm high torque permanent magnet dc generator which is considered as most effective for green power generation. The system also uses a single shaft direct drive to minimize the friction losses. The H2N machine eliminates the use of flywheel and utilizes ...

I'm working on an older technology used in early nuclear submarines. They had to break salt water (abandon of it in the oceans) to feed the crew with fresh O2 for months without surfacing. I use this technology to re-fuel marine engines saving them some money. Specially marine engines run WOT most of the time they get horrible fuel consumption. Feeding into the intake manifold broken from seawater H2 and O will save some fuel. Patent is pending and some modeling has being ...

I intend to make the production of electrical energy cheaper and less polluting. My invention is a heat pipe engine. A heat pipe has two ends, a wick and a channel for the vapor to flow between the two ends shown in figure 1. A high concentration liquid saturates the wick at one end. A low concentration liquid saturates the wick at the other end. The low concentration liquid will flow through the wick into the high concentration liquid. Within the wick are two electrodes 1 and 2. Electrode 1 is located in high concentration liquid, and electrode 2 is in the low concentration liquid. When heat is applied to the end with the high concentration liquid, some of ...
