I received a message today from a reader suggesting a particular website. I read the information on that particular website, and there was presented a hybrid energy producing system by using the waves as a “catalyst” for the operation of a diesel-powered generator.
Germany has an ongoing plan to store their CO2 emissions underground. They used a special drill during tests earlier this year for the carbon capture project in Ketzin. The GFZ geoscience institute says that Germany will inaugurate Europe’s first underground carbon dioxide storage site.
A better combustion engine is the one recently patented by Revetec, a small company from Australia. Their engine has been tested by independent parties. It has the same power as an ordinary engine, but it consumes half the fuel and it weights 50% less. It’s also smaller than the average car engine.
Baton Rouge, LA (June 27, 2008) ÃƒÂ¢€Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Governor Bobby Jindal has signed into law the Advanced Biofuel Industry Development Initiative, the most comprehensive and far-reaching state legislation in the nation enacted to develop a statewide advanced biofuel industry.
The aid agency Oxfam said Wednesday that the all-beloved biofuels are to be blamed for 30% of the increase in food prices worldwide, pushing 30 million people around the globe into poverty.
One of the biggest names in aviation, Pratt & Whitney, spent almost twenty years developing the geared turbofan engine that burns 12 to 15% less fuel than other jet engines. The new turbofan engine also cuts carbon dioxide emissions by 1,500 tons/plane yearly.
In their search to make better fuel cells, a research team from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), in collaboration with the University of Liverpool, has discovered a new structure that moves oxygen ions through the cell at substantially lower temperatures than previously thought possible.
Watch the video first, and then read the article. It may be better that way. Some things must be stood up for, because this is our only way of saving the whole world from petrol dependence.
A team of researchers from the University of British Columbia, coordinated by Physics Assoc. Prof. Andrea Damascelli, has managed to develop a technique that controls the number of electrons from the surface of a high temperature superconductor. This procedure has been considered impossible for the last 20 years.
California-based company Ultracell designed this methanol fuel cell for the army. XX25 uses eight and a half ounces of methanol to supply power for a military laptop for eight hours. It can also be made to last longer if you attach it to a bigger tank of methanol.
Toto invented a self-powered faucet. Self-powered is a little exaggerated, because this electric faucet’s sensor is powered by the electricity produced by a small turbine, located inside.
The city of Paris will adopt a new way of transport until the end of 2009. Mayor Bertrand Delanoi« announced last week …
TGER is the name of the trash-eating machine. It uses multiple technologies to fuel a standard 60-kilowatt electrical generator.
The scientists from the University of Delaware created an electric car prototype that runs on electricity alone. The great fact is that it also can, theoretically, earn money for its owner by storing electricity and providing it for utilities when needed.
Chrysalix Energy invested several million dollars in a Dutch-based maker of ultrafast battery chargers that aim the market of electric cars and plug-in hybrids. Epyon B.V.,produced a “supercharge” technology that reduces the charge time of lithium-ion batteries 20 times below the times reached by current chargers.
Mazda is in the process of testing a car that runs on both hydrogen and gasoline (it’s a dual fuel system). They’re allowed to test the car on the public roads from Japan.
