This is a process of identifying plastic according to their polymers using the latest and state of the art technology and sorting them out in automated manner. Perhaps this is the first of its kind.

LIBS and FTIR are laboratory tested and commercially applied. We just have to integrate the LIBS and FTIR device, more likely separately , in a machine to identify the type of plastic with automated movement during identification and separation process.

This is a development or improvement in the collection and sorting of plastics compared to manual means of separating different types of plastic since the identification of type of plastic is done quickly within microseconds only or in less than a minute for hard to determine ...

The demand for locally-sourced food, particularly in urban settings, has skyrocketed in recent years and is projected to continue climbing. However, as the population density of urban settings continues to increase worldwide, it is becoming less feasible to grow food locally because of the footprint it requires. This award-winning invention is a rapidly-deployable, innovative greenhouse design that can grow up to eight types of crops autonomously and efficiently. It utilizes a novel spiral architecture to grow crops vertically, rather than horizontally, to optimize its use of space. This design was originally developed by MIT engineers for a NASA competition to support a crew of astronauts on Mars. In spaceflight, every bit of volume is at a premium. Therefore, this ...
"THE INDUSTRY WILL ADAPT TECHNOLOGY, WHICH RIGHT NOW DOESN’T EXIST.
SO THAT’S THE CHALLENGE."

-The integration represents a shield to protect human lungs from deadly industrial emissions.
-Opportunities by developing green technology to capture carbon dioxide emissions from coal-fired power plants, using algae. Set out to demonstrate that an algae-based system could recycle the carbon dioxide in flue gas. Scientists looking for ways to curb carbon dioxide emissions have taken a keen interest in algae. These simple plant-like, aquatic organisms — their family includes both pond scum and seaweed — are among the oldest forms of life on Earth. Like plants, they draw energy from them.
-Algae does an efficient job of sequestering carbon, taking it out of the air and ...

At this point, awareness of plastic is not an issue. The critical point is proposing new ways to replace, manage and dispose of plastic material that is used for a different use. One of the widely used plastics is plastic bottle packaging. This packaging helps plastic bottles be easily manageable for storage and transportation. But as you surely noticed those plastic packaging end up in landfills as they are easy to manufacture.

This project offers a new type of packaging plastic bottles so that plastic packaging will be omitted. This mechanism is very simple less cost and do the task. The device is using hard plastic belt type mechanism to hold the plastic bottles together. Since the bottom part ...

E-BIN is new way to recycle with a mobile phone app system known as Bottles-4-Bucks. The software encourages recycling by paying rewards and saves city, university and tax-payer dollars by simplifying the recycling process. The app communicates to any existing recycling bins by simply adding QR (Quick Response) code stickers to them. Enhanced bins will communicate via Bluetooth. Collection sites are placed at key locations throughout cities, parks or campuses and can be arranged as needed to sort containers of glass, plastic, aluminum and other materials of choice upon deposit.

Participants earn “green points” in the form of restaurant coupons, event tickets, student perks or “electronic cash” on their phone app for good deeds in recycling. Existing recycling bins can ...

Modern diesel engines move cargo all over the world and generate electricity. My idea is to use supplemental Oxygen to duplicate the effects of Nitrous Oxide without adding additional Nitrogen. Thus, by using a dedicated Oxygen Generator, you increase combustion and reduce fuel usage.

The Oxygen Generator supplies an additional 13% pure Oxygen to the engine in question to raise the level to 35/36%.

I have included a picture of a Caterpillar EMD 1010 locomotive engine as an example of the type of diesel that this system is envisioned for. The Oxygen Generator is hooked directly to the engine's air intakes, and as this type of engine runs at 1,000 RPM it would use .06 SCFH of Oxygen.

Pump ambient air (which contains CO2) into a plastic tank, filled with sea water, through a gas distributor. Carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air will dissolve in the sea water. The surface of the sea water should be exposed to direct sunlight. Phytoplankton will be multiplied on the surface of the sea water by the natural process of photosynthesis, which utilizes CO2 and sunlight (as in the hot Benguela sea stream on the South African East Coast, which captures CO2 and produces phytoplankton for marine fish consumption). The plankton biomass produced by this process can then be harvested for renewable clean energy purposes and agricultural fertilizer, e.g. 1) Production of methane heating gas in a bio-digester tank to serve ...

A small group of scientists in Fairfax, Virginia has combined the best scientific principles from its study of cold fusion over the last 25 years into a unique design for the prototype cold fusion generator discussed below.

Innovation: The system’s reaction chamber and heat exchanger/boiler are key subsystems depicted in the enclosed illustration. This design is novel and presents the following important advances over the current state-of-the-art:
(a) utilizes pressurized hydrogen and deuterium gas and proton-deuteron (p-d) reactions that occur more easily in a cold fusion environment than other types of nuclear reactions.
(b) it is designed to produce 200 kilowatts (kW) of heat, which can be converted into mechanical horsepower sufficient to run an automobile or power homes ...

Here we present a modification in the elevator (lift) which can easily harvest the waste energy when the lift will be in operation, which will be due to the Recyclable Triboelectric materials. This modification increases the energy efficiency of the building. There is waste of energy during the up and down motion of an elevator and some amount of this energy can be easily harvested by this modification in the elevator.

Here we will be introducing the concept of Triboelectric Nanogenerator. Basically, triboelectric nanogenerator is a concept of generation of electricity by having rubbing action between two triboelectric materials or either when they come in contact and separated, there is an electron transfer between these materials, which can be ...

Energy is one of the main currencies in our world. One of the sources of energy is solar power. Since it is a renewable power source, countries all over the world are adopting it primarily among wind power, geothermal and hydropower. Scientists all over the world are always desperate to find ideas on a new power source and increase the efficiency of the existing ones. This project proposes a new concept on increasing the performance of solar panels by utilizing photons better than the existing solar panels. The current (flat) solar panels efficiency is very small compared to the space they take and cost spent on manufacturing and maintenance. Basically, solar panel work using sun rays to produce electric ...
