Helium Reserve Declining, Scientists Warn Against Wasting Helium In Balloons

Helium Reserve Declining, Scientists Warn Against Wasting Helium In Balloons

Flying balloons are filled with Helium, the second lightest chemical element in the Universe. But the irony is there is a global shortage of helium gas in the world. Knowing the fact, still gas balloons are found. Scientists have realized that we should try not to waste Helium in unimportant things. Otherwise, in future we as well as next generation will be in big trouble. Hence scientists have spoken out against wasting Helium in balloons.

Apple Almost Finished Working On Its Gigantic Solar Farm

Apple Almost Finished Working On Its Gigantic Solar Farm

Apple got the permission from the North Carolina Utilities Commission to build a 20-megawatt solar photovoltaic electric generating farm at 6028 Startown Road, Maiden, North Carolina. The company’s target is to complete the solar farm before November 2012 and run it by December 21, 2012. According to the video clips of the ongoing solar farm captured by WCNC-TV, it seems that the work is nearly complete.

Robots To Reduce Cost Of Solar Energy Production

Robots To Reduce Cost Of Solar Energy Production

While the entire world especially U.S. is busy in adopting solar tech in order to keep the pressure off traditional electricity sources, at that time, why robots which is entering almost every sector should be lagged behind in this sector? California based startup QBotix Inc. has come up with a system to move solar panels using a robot so that the panels could track the sun in a cheaper way than standard systems. The new system bets to cut the cost of producing solar electricity by up to 20 percent. The company is preparing to release its so called solar robots next month.

A Solar Cell That Can Produce Electricity At Night

A Solar Cell That Can Produce Electricity At Night

One of the major problems with solar panels is, they can’t produce electricity during the night. That means, a solar photovoltaic plant works only for 12 hours on average per day. Scientists have a solution now. Solar panels can now produce electricity, indirectly, at night, without sunlight. A new solar panel technology will produce hydrogen gas along with electricity during the day, that will power fuel cells at night. That means, smooth generation of electricity 24-hour a day.

Eliodomestico – A Solar Oven That Transforms Salty Water Into Drinkable Water

Eliodomestico – A Solar Oven That Transforms Salty Water Into Drinkable Water

Two of the largest problems in the world are food supply and fresh clean water. Three-forth of the world is filled with water. Most of these water are dirty, salty and therefore undrinkable. In fact, of all the water on earth, only very few percentage of water is available for us to use and drink. On the other hand, finding drinking water in this polluting world in a very easy way is a nightmare. But an Italian designer Gabriele Diamanti doesn’t believe that. He has made a solar oven called Eliodomestico that can transform salty water into drinkable water. 5 liters of salty water can be transformed into drinkable water daily.

US CO2 Emissions Lowest In Last 20 Years

US CO2 Emissions Lowest In Last 20 Years

According to a report from the U.S. Energy Information Agency, the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in the U.S. has dropped to a 20-year low. The drop comes as surprise to officials and scientists practicing related trade. The main reason behind the surprising drop in carbon dioxide emissions is said to the result of recent shift to natural gas by some power plant operators from coal.

Fujitsu Recycling Wasted CDs And DVDs To Build Shiny New Notebooks

Fujitsu Recycling Wasted CDs And DVDs To Build Shiny New Notebooks

What do you do with CDs and DVDs? Listen music, write Data, watch movies & lots of entertaining attributes to enjoy. Have you ever thought of any other alternative idea? Japanese electronics giant Fujitsu came up with an idea of recycling the CDs & DVDs into laptops. Aren’t you surprised!!! Well it’s not necessarily to be the disks that you needed. You might have old/damaged disks in your home which you are not using since long. Those wasted & unused CDs will be used in the recycling process for the generation of the bodies of the new Fujitsu notebooks.

GE, Ford, And The University Of Michigan Team Up To Extend EV Battery Life

GE, Ford, And The University Of Michigan Team Up To Extend EV Battery Life

Researchers all around the world are teaming up with automotive manufacturers and battery manufacturers in order to design “improvements in battery packs” that will help Electric Vehicles (EVs) drive faster. For EVs, longer battery life equates to a longer driving distance. So, General Electric (GE), Ford, and the University of Michigan are working together on a new project with the goal of extending battery life for EVs.

Zero-Blade Turbine Could Revolutionize Wind Power Industry

Zero-Blade Turbine Could Revolutionize Wind Power Industry

We have seen many high-tech wind turbines earlier that are considered as one of the main sources of sustainable energy. It’s sad but true that, the rotation of the blades of wind turbines often kill birds. Added to that, the noise and vibration of the wind turbines cause headaches, nausea and insomnia among people living nearby; even scramble radio and TV signals. But, this things may end with a revolutionary design from a Tunisian company, Saphon Energy. Saphon has come up with a non-rotational blade free wind power generation system, called The Saphonian.
