powerspan eco















The Electro-Catalytic Oxidation (ECO) system is an integrated air pollution control technology that achieves major reductions in the primary air pollutants of concern from coal-fired power plants, specifically 99% reduction of sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions, 90% of nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions, 80-90% of mercury (Hg) emissions, and 95% of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) emissions. The system also provides high removal of other metals and acid gases such as sulfuric acid (SO3/H2SO4), hydrochloric acid (HCl), and hydrofluoric acid (HF). The ECO system produces a valuable, ammonium sulfate fertilizer co-product, reducing operating costs and minimizing landfill disposal of waste.

Thin-Film Solar




TFPV. . . . most manufacturers are ramping up production capacity and several -- including First Solar, Fuji Electric, Nanosolar, Sanyo, Uni-Solar and G24i -- are building plants with more than 100 MW in capacity.

Some of the findings of the report include:

  • PV could eventually account for as much as 20 percent of the U.S. market's energy needs.
  • TFPV was only five percent of the entire PV market recently , but it is expected to account for 35 percent of the photovoltaics market by 2015.
  • TFPV can be manufactured using simple printing or other R2R machines. Printing TFPV has the potential for lowering capital costs by as much as 75 percent, reducing waste and increasing throughput.

Bio Diesel Landspeed Bike



Die Moto, a custom-built performance diesel motorcycle capable of running on diesel, biodiesel, or straight vegetable oil (SVO) fuels. Designed and fabricated at The Crucible by a team of environmentally conscious vehicle enthusiasts, engineers and artisans, the Die Moto is out to prove the viability of alternative fuel technology in performance vehicles. As fuel efficiency and low emissions become increasingly important, diesel technology has responded with improved mileage and easy adaptation to biodiesel and SVO.

smart meter penquin


I like the smart meter concept, it is indeed worthwhile, this penguin though could exist on the pc...

The Penguin is part of the evolving universe of gadgets meant to monitor or conserve energy usage. The Lifinity ECO is both a thermostat or an energy monitor, using helpful cartoon penguins that keep tabs on your heating and AC settings, as well as the stuff plugged in around the house. Currently only available in Japan, naturally, under Matsushita’s National brand, we hope Panasonic considers bringing it to the US, where energy awareness is getting more and more cool.

OUTLAW GASOLINE ENGINES



Gasoline Internal Combustion Engines; Get Rid of em, they stink. The world of ultra clean transportation is right at our fingertips. Its time to drive change. Fighting wars of oil resources represents the "old school" way of solving problems; today " new school" proclaims, Plug-in Hybrid Clean Diesel technology will reduce fuel consumption and emissions. What is the holdup? Really nothing except building the batteries, lihitium vs nickle.... 10 years from now they will say the answer to the battery problem was so simple...

Solar Cell Phones




HTW Solar Phone from China...I think every phone should and will have its own panel...

Solar Phone Rechareger: Until then, Soldius has developed, manufactures and sells, the highest quality, stylish and aesthetic products combined with State of the Art technology which provides people everywhere in the world the ability to use solar energy for charging their everyday electronic devices.

“Today’s increased functionality of mobile phones places enormous energy demands on the handset’s battery. Without an interim replenishing charge, current battery technology struggles to maintain the daily demands of enhanced handsets, for example Bluetooth peripherals, video, imaging etc”.

The age of gas-guzzlers is over


'Pure Honda to the core, the Remix concept vehicle focuses on a simple, lightweight and fun-to-drive philosophy,' said John Mendel, senior vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. 'The concept balances sports car virtues with real-world practicality.'

Hybrid vehicles are hot these days. Factors like constantly rising fuel prices, a growing concern about the environment and fear of tighter emission norms around the globe have spurred the production and sales of hybrids. Powered by this interest, great strides have been made in the field of batteries and associated technologies. All this made the hybrids more user friendly and evolved greater consumer interest in these vehicles. Major brands are now seriously considering the launch of dedicated hybrids like Honda's hybrid concept above.

Closed-loop ethanol system


At the Genesis plant the patented closed-loop ethanol system produces energy by combining manure, collected from an adjacent 28,000-head cattle feedlot, with thin stillage, a cellulosic byproduct of ethanol refining. The hot liquid mixture is decomposed inside an anaerobic digester, where bacteria extract methane-rich biogas that is used to fire the plant's ethanol boilers. Traditional ethanol refineries are fueled by coal or natural gas.The leftover grain is fed wet to the cattle at the nearby feedlot, whose manure in turn powers the plant and creates high-quality fertilizer as a byproduct. Traditional ethanol plants have to invest in expensive, energy-intensive equipment to dry this leftover grain to prevent spoilage, and then transport it to far-off farms to use as feed. The on-site cows are treated to fresh wet cake from the nearby plant, thus avoiding both the cost and fossil fuel pollution of drying and transporting the grain.

Greenhouse gases are reduced by capturing the methane gas, which is 23 times more potent than carbon dioxide in causing global warming, that the decomposing manure would release to the atmosphere if it were not used in the process. By recycling livestock manure into biogas energy, the system eliminates a major component of the No. 1 source of water pollution in the United States: agricultural runoff.

Mercury Meta One


Mercury Meta One combines a hybrid transmission with a twin-turbocharged V-6 diesel engine calibrated to run on a bio-diesel blend (fuel made from natural, renewable sources such as vegetable oils). The combination is designed to produce the power of a V-10, with emission levels clean enough to meet California's Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (PZEV) requirement.

THREE WHEELERS







Carver, LIfe Jet 300... and the GX3, A crossover between a sports car and a motorcycle. The GX3 was developed by the Moonraker Team and VW's Design Center in California, exclusively for the U.S. With its three wheels and a unique design, this Volkswagen brings pure driving enjoyment back into every day life. Light, fast and environmentally friendly, the GX3 shows that conceptually it is much closer to a motorcycle than to any other type of vehicle.

The choice seems to be two wheels in front or two in back? I like the two in front...
