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 ...

"Billions of people are at risk of exposure to increasingly dangerous heat conditions. They need access to cooling, but without warming the planet.

An estimated 3.3 billion room air-conditioning units will be installed in the world between now and 2050. Most of these units are inefficient and will place a significant burden on electricity grid infrastructure and consumers in developing countries. Drastic transformation of residential cooling technology through innovation can improve people’s health, productivity, and well-being, all while avoiding runaway climate change." (Source GCP)

Swirl AC can solve this future problem.

Swirl only uses water to provide cooling (and heating).

It does this using about 1/6 the power of chemical refrigerant AC.

Swirl can give 5.3kW of cooling using ...

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 ...

There are many factors that affect agriculture but the physical factor is the critical matter. Physical factors affecting agriculture are (i) climate (ii) soil and (iii) topography. Meaning temperature, the growing season, altitude, rainfall and wind are the most critical part of a good farming output and most plants are very selective on those factors preference for growing. Even if the land fulfills all the requirements, the output of crops depends upon the space of the land which the farming land fulfills factors like climate which is suitable for the crop.

This project is about solving the space problem in farming land in micro-farming and medium farming areas. This is done by roller farming as seen in the figure. ...

1) As already described in 2017 and 2018 entry a body sliding on an inclined plane can be supported by a thread or support perfectly parallel to the horizontal.The weight of a body that is unsupported even at the position of rest by this mechanism is maximum for a plane of inclination 45°as explained mathematically in preprint manuscript doi:10.5281/zenodo.439108 causing compression of spacetime below and expansion of space time above the supporting surface.Here technical modification is made to support the body by a perfectly horizontal thread or support on a plane of increased inclination by way of pressure by an elastic recoil force.

2) The modification has weight of body sliding on inclined plane IP1 and IP2 of lightweight ...

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 ...

An agreement has been reached between scientists that mercury exposure today is so high in many areas of the globe that it threatens human health. Mercury compounds have carcinogenic, mutagenic and teratogenic properties. Therefore, the Minamata Convention to limit anthropogenic mercury emission was signed in 2013 and ratified in 2017. To limit the anthropogenic mercury emission will be significant for creating a cleaner atmosphere in the future.

Coal combustion in coal-fired power plant is one of the main sources of anthropogenic mercury emission around the world, and the mercury released into the atmosphere with the flue gas emission. In the coal-fired flue gas, elemental mercury, Hg(0), is difficult to be controlled due to its high volatility and low solubility. ...

Initial design consideration calls for a manually pumped, separating flush toilet similar to a modified manual marine toilet. Subsequent iterations may be suitable for Pour-flush toilets of the seated and squat-plate types.

Operation of the flush mechanism initially pumps flush water to impart turbulent motion to feces in the toilet, further operation of the mechanism suctions the toilet contents through an static mixing chamber and Joker-valve and into the main pump body. The return stroke forces the contents of the main pump body through a second static mixing chamber and Joker-valve, then into a Self Stirring Mesophilic Anaerobic Reactor.

The Self Stirring Mesophilic Anaerobic Reactor consists of a 2-chambered vessel, of equal portions connected at the bottom in such a manner ...

In extreme hot summer, many people, particularly the elderly, can suffer heat-stroke and die. For example, in 2018, there were more than 65,000 global deaths due to extreme heat wave. Therefore, air-conditioning is no longer a luxury but a necessity.
Air conditioners literally save lives and improve quality of life both at home and at work. So why are air conditioners not available everywhere? Present day air conditioners, invented in 1902, face a number of challenges. Firstly, they consume huge amounts of energy; secondly, they cause significant environmental detriment due to the use of chemical refrigerants; and lastly, to cool a desired location, they dissipate large amounts of heat to the environment; creating undesirable heat zones.

Conventional water-based ...
