There is a major problem on the planet with air pollution from vehicles. This problem is causing major health problems with people in cities where the air pollution is prevalent. We are spending billions of dollars to try and fix the problem with the air pollution from vehicles, but we are not seeing the drastic change we need. Electric vehicles are said to be the answer, but these vehicles are also contributing to the issue due to the power it takes to charge the large battery, which in itself is a major issue. In addition to these issues, we also have an issue with fossil fuels to fuel the Internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles.

To address these critical issues ...

Solar still technology is well developed. Solar stills today can be manufactured easily and cheaply. Solar stills are one of the cheapest ways to produce fresh water. A solar still that could provide both freshwater and electric would be a boon to the world. Most poor areas need both freshwater and electricity. Also, solar stills are found in most survival kits. The solar stills in these kits could be adapted by adding two porous electrodes so that the still could produce both electric and fresh water, both highly desirable in a survival situation.

Figure 1 shows the use of forward osmosis to produce a solar still and electric. The solar still comprises a tub of water and a transparent ...

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 ...

Eight million metric tons of plastic waste, including polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles, enter the oceans each year, creating huge man-made islands of garbage. Experts estimate that by 2050, there will be as much waste plastic in the ocean by mass as there are fish. It’s a global environmental problem that poses a serious risk to wildlife, particularly in marine environments.

Now imagine something as simple as a microbe that can degrade those plastic bottles. Such an organism exists. Ideonella sakaiensis 201-F6 is a recently discovered bacterium that can degrade PET using its PETase enzyme, but PETase doesn’t yet work fast enough to solve plastic recycling at the industrial scale.

However, while working to solve the crystal structure of PETase, an international ...

Harvesting energy efficiently is of paramount importance to maximize energy production efficiency. In order to produce energy freely I have successfully developed a new concept after spending several years to research.

How it works: Rotor coils rotate counter clockwise reaction of that makes permanent magnet rotor rotate in clockwise direction. This motion of permanent magnet rotor causes reaction in outer rotor in clockwise direction which causes a current generated in outer coils.

The energy that produces electricity comes from reaction (Newton’s third law). Every electric motor has reaction; this reaction force is lost to move earth for a minuscule amount of distance, if motor is attached rigidly to earth by mountings. Famous examples of reaction forces in moving vehicle ...

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. ...

Steam engine train is not use at present, because more effective diesel and electric engine train is invented. If we passing over disadvantage of steam engine , such as pollution ; water and coal filling again & again ; huge weight are carried for coal and water , then The steam engine may come-back again as electric train by generating electric through steam turbine among that train .Any fuel is not need to make steam and no need water filling again and again . This system can use for Truck ,Bus ,Car also .This system will be possible by this invention.

For this system one (for car ) or more ( for train )steam boiler is need for making ...

Plastic waste pollution is an increasingly prevalent environmental issue around the world. Many companies produce plastic waste through their manufacturing processes, and remote or resource-limited environments - isolated island populations, natural disaster locations, theaters of war, and more - continuously bring in plastic products that end up as waste.. Individuals in these remote environments also face the challenge of acquiring manufactured tools and resources. Although additive manufacturing technologies unlock the potential for users to solve complex problems and create insular supply chains, they continue to suffer from barriers such as cost, accessibility, and sustainability.

As hazardous molecules such as HC, CO and Nox from automobile exhaust and air pollution can cause allergy and coughing and trigger cancer, Green Island Smart Ecological Purification System has thus been designed. By heating up ceramic substrates, the Green Island system transforms hazardous molecules into nutrients and oxygen required for algae cultivation, and electricity generated by algal photosynthesis is used for reproduction and cultivation lights to keep the temperature of ceramic substrates in the Green Island system to boost circulation. Additionally, aquatic plants growing on Green Island can exchange nutrients with algae to form ecological symbiosis. Excessive algae which can be picked and made into biomass petroleum become energy suppliers. Green Island not only purifies air, but also ...

Gripped interlocking solar panel mechanism is designed to incorporate transparent silicone glass additive/filament manufacturing. The transparent silicone glass filament adhesive covers the solar panels top surface area enabling a gripped textured solar panel. The transparent silicone glass adhesive filament acts as a water/weather proofing containment lining as well as a tempreture residual resistant thermally conductive materialed coating. Silicone rubberized glass adhesive filaments acts as an insulating Barrier/layer for the solar panel. The silicone glass adhesive filament doesn't shrink or warp causing no structural stress. Acts as a protective gripped layering/lining. The gripped solar panel is applied for drawbridges, bridges, roads, personal driveways, parking lots sidewalks etc. 3D printing using transparent silicone rubberized glass filaments/additives would be very cost effective ...
