The thinnest material in existence is Graphene. It has high thermal conductivity, quantum hall effect, mechanical good with high Young's modulus (1 TPa) and intrinsic strength of 130 GPa, high optical transmittance and high electronic transport, barrier and flame retardant properties owing to their zero bad gaps as a single sheet. Graphene is a 2D structure of carbon atoms with hexagonal crystalline structure with sp2 bonds. Graphene, being a gapless semiconductor, cannot be used in pristine form for nano-electronic applications. Therefore, it is essential to generate a finite gap in the energy. Its recent experimental discovery has stimulated extensive investigations on every aspect of this novel material. The recent work indicates that the carbon layer is covalently bonded to ...

Plastic waste pollution is an increasingly prevalent environmental issue around the world. Many companies produce plastic waste through their manufacturing processes, and resource-limited environments - isolated island populations, natural disaster locations, remote operations, and more - continuously bring in plastic products that end up as waste. In parallel to these issues, individuals in these remote environments often face the challenge of acquiring manufactured tools and resources. Additive manufacturing technologies enable users to solve complex manufacturing and supply chain problems, but these technologies continue to suffer from barriers such as cost, accessibility, and sustainability.

To address these barriers, re:3D developed Gigabot X, a 3D printer that prints directly from polymer pellets, flakes, or recycled regrind, allowing it to revive plastic waste ...

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Conventionally, as a flocculent for use in such wastewater treatment, synthetic polymer flocculants such as poly acryl amide have been frequently used. However, with this coagulant tends to accumulate in the environment for less likely to be degraded to be released to the environment, it had been pointed out to be toxic.

So, there is a need for an alternate method for the waste water treatment and converting that waste water into safe drinking water which should be eco friendly and economically viable. This powder treats all types of waste waters in a very effective manner without causing any harm to the environment.

INNOVATION :

R glue powder is an efficient clue for safe drinking ...

Solar pumped storage with AI is an advanced water storage and electricity production technique. It also stores water for the masses but also produce renewable and clean energy.

PV panels are used to store water in a main tank during day hours and it is discharged to generate electricity at night when peak load is in grid.

Shade balls and floating solars are used to stop evaporation, were as Artificial Intelligence (ANN) is used to control speed of back water pump to maintain constant pressure and generate electricity in a better ...

Create a returnable plastics lottery system where reverse vending machines are used as "slot machines" (https://youtu.be/I2C7GjP1fGs) and where any (authorized) plastic item could be deposited and where only very occasionally would the depositor win a (relatively) large dollar amount prize.

Reverse vending machines have already been invented (https://newsroom.tomra.com/reverse-vending-101-a-beginners-guide/). Lottery commissions are already established in every state and the lottery mentality (https://medium.com/@abdulazizmash/the-lottery-mentality-lottery-hope-2dbb60a33ccc) has been proven over many years to work effectively. That is, virtually everyone will consider buying a lottery ticket, knowing that the chance to win is 3 million to 1 but, also knowing that there is at least a (small) chance to "win big." I guarantee you that a lottery system will bring back whatever plastic items we ...

Americans are eating themselves to death. On average, it takes $7 dollars to get a single apple from the grove of its birth to the bodega shelf in New York. The people that need the food the most cannot get it, and instead sustain themselves on packages designed more for shelf life than for human life. Heart disease, fatigue, obesity, and diabetes have all been connected to this, a statistic backed up by recent mortality rates in the poorer neighborhoods due to COVID-19.

With the number of both farms and farmers declining each year, we need to do better. Three technologies exist today, that if combined, would revolutionize health.

Container Farming - Aquaponics provides a closed-loop, environment free of ...

The design and configuration of platforms for online learning such as MOOCs is an untested knowledge domain. We conceptualise a platform for knowledge gifting - whereby subject matter experts can be quickly trained to create and share their knowledge and receivers who are in need of such knowledge can interact. We propose that multiple, repeated Randomised Control Trials (RCTs) ) be conducted with the careful design of MOOC platforms and slection of measureable outcomes of effectiveness.

Please see illustration of RCT Experimental Design

The RCTs could proceed as follows. Standardizing a given number of subject or topics of impact (say, 3 diverse courses in Health & Nutrition, Python Programming, Parenting Skills for Beginners) and a controlled number of knowledge givers ...

The extend of the topics involved herein are massive, each in it's own industry. However, we will attempt to summarize it here, with only a top level overview. That is: research from major Universities around the world, and from classified laboratories, have identified that critical brain transmissions, as measurable, are basically made up of what may be described as sound and light frequencies, (see diagram 1). Many of these can be emulated mechanically, amplified and even stored in capacitors for controlled usages. However, in the human brain and body, such power and control becomes coupled with vast channels of communications and reciprocity, covering far more of such activities. Herein, most of the same are directed naturally by constantly renewed ...

Mobility and power enable improved quality of life and economic development but current rural vehicle and power solutions in the developing world have either very limited utility or are too expensive to be broadly deployed. Part of the problem is that traditional vehicles (whether motorized or non-motorized) can only be used for transport and this limits their utility and productivity. Another challenge is that the cost to import a complete vehicle is high and creates no local manufacturing capability whereas there may not be the expertise to build one from scratch and the end-product may not have the required cost, quality, reliability and durability.

Our proposed business idea addresses both issues. Instead of building vehicles from scratch or importing ...

1 With the development of the global economy, the prevention and control of atmospheric volatile organic compounds (VOCs) has become a serious challenge in the field of industry and power generation. The VOCs are bio-accumulative, carcinogenic, teratogenic, and mutagenic, which are important inducements that cause complex atmospheric pollution, induce haze, and photochemical smog. It was found that the composition of VOCs from coal combustion was mainly composed of hydrocarbons, benzene and its derivatives, phenols, esters, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. The VOCs concentration in the complex coal combustion flue gas is low, while the components are complex, the total amount is large, and the toxicity is high, posing a major threat to the ecological environment. There is still a lack ...
