Sustainable Technologies/​Future Energy

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.

The Gravity Induced Power Plant is an electricity generator based on the free-fall (gravity-induced) of capsules loaded with highly magnetized buckminsterfullerene (or buckyball) along a helical tube. The power plant is self-sustained by lifting the capsules by means of magnetic levitation.

Following from an issue of Nature on the harnessing of rain drop energy sometime ago at “Tech Briefs Media 2020”; subsequently, I thought to propose these two related energy ideas that may be useful if you considered them, viz:

1. Pressure from or to seats in vehicles, etc.

HyPoint's NASA award-winning fuel cell technology, developed by an international team of scientists and engineers, delivers an unprecedented combination of specific power and energy density.

Currently, it is not possible to live without electricity. Our lifestyles influence this resource consumption. Indeed, each one of us with his attitude and mores imposes a certain profile to electrical consumption. This project aims to develop a solution that allows smart remote measurements of electricity consumption.

The present invention is based upon modifications of a Create the Future Design Contest Entry, which I filed on July 1, 2012, titled: “Superconducting Solenoid Liquid Vortex Power and Propulsion.” In the previous invention, fresh or salt water was compelled to vortex flow through the bore of larger diameter,

Located in the tropical waters of the Atlantic would be a vast field of floating solar collectors, providing power for electrodes submerged in the seawater. At the cathodes, hydrogen is collected and piped to compressors and liquified for shipping. The compressors are also powered by the solar collectors.

The hydrogen conversion is the classic chicken-egg problem:

Since the infrastructure of the filling stations is not sufficient, few H2-powered vehicles are manufactured and because too few vehicles are bought, there is no incentive to set up filling stations!

As is well known,

1st Picture FIG 29: Hydraulic ram (hydram) is a cyclic water pump powered by hydropower that requires no outside source of power other than the kinetic energy of flowing water 701.

The Infrared (IR) Sourced Heat Pump configures state of the art directional infrared technology incorporated into the heat pump cycle to directly add trim heat to the system refrigerant in-cycle. Proprietary IR configurations and control & defrost strategies deliver necessary energy transfer at upwards of 99.7%.
