The air conditioning of spaces has become a need of the human being to have a better quality of life, it is common for many families to have equipment to cool the air in their homes in the spring and summer seasons; In hospitals it is important to have air cooling systems for the hygiene conditions that are required, as well as to maintain comfort in public places such as cinemas and restaurants. Particularly in the geographical areas where there is a warm climate, air conditioning equipment is very necessary to counteract the high temperatures. Our team has identified certain problems that still exist regarding conventional air conditioning equipment:

1.- There is a part of the population that cannot ...

Terabit analyses integrates several functionalities onto a single platform: sample preparation, nucleic acid amplification and pathogen detection. It incorporates many of the required components of a typical room-sized laboratory in a small, portable device that empowers producers to perform food safety testing in the field. There is no longer need for well-equipped lab and experienced laboratory staff to precisely detect and recognize the biological threat.

Terrabio’s portable detection system will significantly reduce the time of the diagnostic procedure. It takes less than 40 minutes from sample collection to the result. Thanks to our patent pending heating technology we ware able to achieve unbeatable temperature ramping of over 20 oC/sec on heating and 15 oC/sec on cooling, while still maintaining ...

Plastics are a real time problem in each and every country but if we look deep into it we can find that maximum plastics are recyclable. The problem lies in the logistics part where maximum plastics are unable to reach the recycling industries. R-cube is a idea where a virtual force will help in keeping the environment clean. The manufacturing companies will print a bar code just below the neck of the bottle which will be sent to the distributors who will scan that code in the ID of the retailers and send it to them. There will be a recycling tax which will be added to the Marked price which is 7% of the price of the bottle. ...

With water shortages on the rise, wastewater is a looming concern that leaves the world’s top minds in a constant battle to combat the inefficiency and high cost of water treatment and disposal. Most industries produce wastewater. Over 80% worldwide, and 69% in the U.S., of industry’s wastewater is not reused; posing massive issues with treatment, disposal, and environmental impact. Industry’s current response to increased regulation and wastewater treatment costs is to move to a Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) solution, using a variety of very expensive treatment processes to concentrate the effluent. The ZLD market alone is growing to $8.1 billion by 2025.

The cheese industry is moving toward ZLD, with its 5.3 billion pounds of brine producing Italian ...

Environmental contaminants like total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) persist for decades in soils and sediments, and have been linked to cancer, immune and nervous system disorders, reproductive and developmental abnormalities, learning disorders, birth defects, and other health concerns. Traditional remediation methods are expensive and can further damage the environment. The estimated cost of remediating contaminated sites was estimated at $6-$8 billion annually in the U.S. and $425-$500 billion globally, mostly for remediating soils. Current cleanup methods include soil dredging, soil capping, and excavation. Dredging and/or excavating to remove contaminants is expensive, time consuming, and labor intensive, and risks harmful secondary effects such as damage to the ecosystem and the release of carbon ...

Oil spills occur when an offshore oil rig experiences an accident or a cargo ship capsizes. Once the oil is spilled over the surface of ocean, it is not only a disaster for marine environment, but also devastating once the spilled oil is absorbed by marine creatures and finds its way into the food chain.

ST 0IL is an intelligent spill removal fleet with its associated management system built around the idea of a fleet of mother vessel and several children vessels. When oil spills, mother vessel carries her children to the site. On arrival, the children are detached and circle around the spill for containment while the absorbent materials remove the spill. Once a child is filled, it ...

The global economy thrives on energy. Affordable energy directly contributes to increase productivity, reducing poverty and improving betterment of life. The global population is increasing day by day, which, in a way is leading to the utilization of natural resources and fossil fuels. Concentrating on the limited stock of fossil fuel, efforts have been in full swing to search for sustainable alternative to petroleum without adversely affecting the supply of food with keeping the environment clean (GO GREEN).

Biodiesel from algae is the most promising renewable biofuel derived from biomass with the potential to completely displace petroleum-derived fuel without adversely affecting the supply of food and other crop products, while keeping the environment pollution free. An alga grows naturally ...

The TumbleDown Self-Turning Vertical Composting System repeatedly and thoroughly mixes ("turns") compost without machinery or labor. The design resembles a multiple helix spiral staircase within a silo. The mixture of organic materials tumbles down from one stairstep to the next. “Self-Turning” refers only to the spontaneous tumbling of the compost. The structure itself does not move and has no moving parts.

The process is driven by two of nature's most powerful forces, gravity and decomposition.

Compostable waste is loaded at the top of the silo. Each stairstepful of organic matter is propped up by the compost on the stairstep just below and in turn props up the mass of compost on the stairstep just above. As decomposition progresses, the tangle ...

NOVEL INTEGRATED MOTOR-GENERATOR
The novel integrated motor-generator (IMG) is an electromechanical system that produces electrical energy continuously after having received an initial input mechanical energy.

With reference to FIGURE 1, the IMG consists primarily of a rotor and a stator. The rotor includes a plurality of permanent magnets fixedly mounted to a shaft (not shown) for rotation therewith. As shown, the magnets are arranged in attraction mode relative to one another, their magnetic axes being parallel to a radial line.

The stator includes a plurality of bifilar coils disposed in close enough proximity to the permanent magnets. Two of the bifilar coils are field coils, while the remaining bifilar coils are generating coils. The field coils are connected to the ...

Seismic isolation is a technique that has been used around the world to protect building structures, nonstructural components, users and content of this structures from the damaging effects of earthquake.

In addition to buildings, seismic isolation can be used for the protection of crucial structures such as bridges, LNG tanks, offshore platforms, nuclear and other power plants as well as military installations etc.

My innovative idea focuses mainly on the application of passive seismic isolation for buildings.

In general, isolators are classified into two categories: elastomeric and sliding bearings.

Traditional, elastomeric and lead-rubber seismic isolation bearings provide isolation only from the horizontal components of ground shaking. Similar to elastomeric bearings, the vertical stiffness of lead-rubber bearings is typically thousands ...
