Applied Technologies Company, Ltd (ATC) is involved in the development of components for ecologically benign marine power-industrial systems, based on wave and aqueous ocean resources utilization. ATC is developing the unique offshore Float Wave Electric Power Station (FWEPS) as efficient and perspective means for sea-wave energy conversion to electricity.

In view of global warming up and requirements set to ecological purity, the problem of power production-consumption growth is more often connected with the use of renewable power resources. Sea waves are rather perspective energy carriers since they manifest the highest specific power among renewable sources. Harnessing even a part of the combined World Ocean wave power estimated by the order of five terawatt could more than double sustainable electricity production ...

Wind energy is the most promising source of renewable energy in response to the emerging needs for replacement of the conventional power plants. Currently, the two main devices for generating electricity from wind energy are vertical axis wind turbines and horizontal axis wind turbines. The vertical axis turbine is more suitable for application in the urban and rural areas due to its ability to operate in a lower wind speed range, high turbulence, and capability to accommodate wind from any direction. There are two types of vertical axis wind turbines; the Savonius and the Darrieus with opposing capabilities. The Savonius turbine is a self-starting turbine but has low efficiency due to the drag type blades. Alternatively, the Darrieus turbine ...

According to the World Coal Association (https://www.worldcoal.org/), the energy and cost benefits associated with coal combustion plays a vital role in the robustness of the electric-power generation, steel, and cement industries. Coal combustion accounts for 37% of global electricity generation. EVER-Green™ Coal is an engineered solid fuel alternative to traditional coal, providing a cleaner burn with high energy values and fewer emissions of CO2 (Carbon Dioxide), SO2 (Sulfur Dioxides) and NOx (Nitric Oxides) gases and eliminates other toxins (i.e. aluminum, beryllium, arsenic, mercury, lead, etc.…) that commonly cause groundwater contamination during the storage of combustible coal residue (CCR) located within coal ash ponds. EVER-Green™ Coal combines a unique blend of a “nontoxic” organic and/or inorganic ash; used cooking oils, ...

This product is a community sized unit that converts food waste to energy and compost. Each American produces 231lbs of food waste a year. Rather than this being a problem it can be a valuable commodity.

Food waste is a noxious material if dumped on landfill. The key to the system is the biomimicry of the digester, effectively an artificial cow:
Food waste is chewed in a grinder so that it is easily digested.
It then undergoes acidification in a Stomach while being moved smoothly on by an Archimedes screw.
The material enters a peristaltic semi-permeable gut where methane is produced. The gut is a tube running through a series of peristaltic pumps, the methane passes through the gut wall ...

Electrochemical Recycling Electronic Constituents of Value (eRECOV) offers a game-changing solution to growing challenges of electronic waste. The economical and environmentally sound process eliminates the need for traditional recycling methods such as smelting and cyanide leaching. The chemistry in eRECOV is continuously regenerated, and its solution is reusable. These efficiencies add up to a process that saves money, uses less energy and greatly reduces the waste stream.

The unique process incorporates an electrochemical cell to efficiently dissolve metals from devices, leading to more complete recovery of recyclable materials. In addition to precious metals (gold, silver, palladium), eRECOV efficiently reclaims copper, tin, zinc, lead, nickel and rare earth elements.

The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that the United States generates nearly ...

Novel low cost / electrically conductive / Li-ion corrosion resistant nitrogen atoms doped ultrananocrystalline diamond (N-UNCD) coating provides excellent chemically robust encapsulation of commercial natural graphite (NG)/copper (Cu) anodes and new textured Si-based anodes, currently under development for Li-ion batteries (LIB), providing a solution to the problem of LIBs’ anode materials degradation due to chemical corrosion induced by Li ions.

The N-UNCD encapsulating coating allows for good conductivity of both electrons and Li-ions while exhibiting outstanding chemical and electro-chemical inertness to Li ions-induced corrosion (see Fig. 1 enclosed), eliminating de Li-induced chemical corrosion of graphite powder in current commercial graphite/copper composite anodes (see Fig. 1), which result in degradation of the capacity energy after undesirable relatively short numbers of ...

A January 2016 report from the World Economic Forum projected plastics production, which was 311 million tons in 2014, will double by 2034. Production of ethylene, the basic building block for these materials, represents the single most energy-consuming process in the chemical industry.

LoTempLene has the potential to modernize these industrial processes and scale back their energy consumption. The process could reduce emissions from ethylene production up to 98 percent when driven by energy from carbon-free sources such as solar, wind, or hydropower.

By capturing hydrogen and putting it to use in fuel cells, LoTempLene offers a net gain in process energy. There is no industrial process that consumes energy more voraciously than petrochemical manufacturing. Since the early 20th ...

Present day energy such as fossil fuels, nuclear,solar, wind and others are either to dangerous or not dependable or what not. The idea I have come up with is "energy distancing". Build a thermonuclear generator, using the used fuel pellets from power plants, in a 1'x6' steel cylinder, to generate, at minimum, 5K electricity.

Drill a 30' well in the backyard by the utility entrance. Place the generator capsule at the bottom of the well and connect it to the utility cable with a proper interface. The generator buried in your yard will supply you with continuous power. Peak power will be supplied by the grid. If the grid is disabled by weather or accident you will still have ...

Newgen Gas is a National University of Singapore Spin-off Company with a revolutionary natural gas storage technology. Our innovative process, Solidified Natural Gas (SNG), allows for safe, cost-effective and long term storage of natural gas. We store natural gas in the form of ice-like compounds, gas hydrates. SNG can store these hydrates at standard pressure and up to 0 oC. It eliminates the risks associated with cryogenic handling of liquefied natural gas (LNG at -163 oC) or high-pressure hazards of compressed natural gas (CNG at > 200 atmospheres). SNG’s capital cost is targeted at less than 50 % of the cost of comparable LNG storage tanks, current industrial benchmarks. Our potential customers are NG producers, Power Gencos, Distributors, Industrial ...

We all know that global warming is the biggest challenge we ever faced in our world. At this time awareness on global warming is not an issue but the challenge to solve this problem is. One of the main techniques scientists has come up with to solve the global warming is Carbon sequestration. Carbon sequestration is simply the extraction of carbon or carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to slow or reverse global warming through biological, chemical and physical processes. But Carbon sequestration is not enough and what we need is a mechanism that creates behavioral change on releasing minimum amount of Carbon on our day to day activities without compromising end users comfort or by adding value for end ...
