Energy Globe Award
The 16 minute broadcast assesses the current situation in Ireland and highlights what national improvements can be made in a bid to conserve energy and comply with European directives. Since Thailand is facing immense social and environmental challenges related to energy, the project presenters aim at increasing the use of sustainable energy sources in the north eastern part of the country in order to improve the living conditions of the population in the target areas. He would also like to implement this successful idea in other countries because he is convinced that this is the most effective method of recycling waste paper. NGO members now train other Ninja miners. After a decade of development, PNGinc has well-performing, infinite-life pressurized gas turbogenerators, and a winning global strategy.
In this way they created the necessary conditions for the emergence of life as we know it today. Two years later they began to exchange the hydraulic equipment for the all-electric servo-driven molding machines. After running into a number of obstacles, he began investigating alternatives, including a kW wind turbine and twenty-five microturbines combined heat and power which generate electricity and provide the heating and cooling needs for the plant. The reduced amount of smoke resulting from FES compared to open fire cooking reduces the amount of harmful gas emissions contributing to the greenhouse effect. The hotel management decided to engage Super Solutions Pte Ltd as the energy consulant to find efficient and effective ways for the implementation of the air-conditioning needs for the two blocks. As soon as Alex has brought Haley off, she gets on her knees to enjoy a finger bang courtesy of her girlfriend. A first venture contribution is in principle available, and the rest is being sought.
The most conventional way that most design engineers use would be to upgrade the chiller plant and install a new one for the retail block. However, Super Solutions decided to design a common chiller plant to serve both blocks. This reduced the construction cost, improved the system efficiency and saved maintenance costs. Gully Erosion, Nigeria In Southeastern Nigeria, catastrophic gullies are formed by surface runoff in the fine- to medium grained sands and the medium- to coarse-grained sandstone of the Anambra-Imo basin region.
Gully erosion refers to the localized removal of soil, sediments and poorly consolidated sedimentary rocks by running water to form steep-sided ravines.
The pronounced erosion of the land surface causes an overall lowering of the water table. The project goal was to reduce gully erosion. The purpose was to explain the localization of gullies in the area and to design a strategy for the prevention and control of gully processes. The project research included detailed mapping of the gully systems over a period of eight years.
The project outcomes were controlled runoff at the observation sites, sustainable control of gully erosion at the sites of emergency, empowered village partners, and pluralism of environmental awareness in and around the partner villages.
This year the project celebrates 10 years of existence. The contest is held each year in conjunction with Envirofilm international environmental film festival. The message is to instill in children a love of nature and the environment by fostering their creative and artistic self-expression.
Every year children from Slovakia and abroad have the opportunity to draw, to photograph or to film their own perspectives according a chosen theme appealing to environmental problems. Cooler with a difference This project works towards altering the standard design of evaporative coolers.
The conventional cooler is a rectangular chamber of plastic or metal sheet that cools a room by passing air from an electric fan through pads wetted with water from the sump. When air passes through the wet pad, evaporation of water takes place, which cools the dry air.
The modification they plan involves the replacement of the sump by earthen clay. This clay has the capacity to cool the fluid stored in it.
Pots made of earthen clay have been in use in India for ages. Water seeps through the partially porous walls of these pots; when the water on the outer surface of the pot evaporates, it cools the surface of the pot and the water inside. Thus water cooled by the clay slump will cool the air more effectively when it is pumped up and dispersed to the meshes than conventional slump water.
This innovation helps to increase the cooling capacity without increasing the power consumption of the appliance. Wide-scale Electrification of the Planet through Solar-Turbine Power Generation The major share of solar energy in the future will be provided by solar turbines, not photovoltaic systems. Photovoltaic panels will never have the energy densities required to electrify the planet.
Only solar tracking heat concentrators and disk turbines have the capability to supply the entire planet with all of its motive power needs. As the leading developer of disk turbines today, PNGinc has pulled together a small army of developers to address the problems inherent in an affordable solar energy system for the 21st century.
In the not-too-distant future, solar farms in historically poor nations will produce electricity which, stored in fleets of battery ships, will be transported to sun-poor regions.
The project goal is to enable the move to non-polluting distributed electrical power systems on the home and village levels — while empowering sun-rich developing nations to become the global power players in this century. Projects such as these will eventually move the world off the destructive fossil fuel circle. ClimateArk is a massive portal website that includes a unique search engine, news tracking, commentary and links. Glen Barry, has achieved all of this without outside funding.
Unfortunately it has become a potential source of various infectious diseases due to factories sending all their wastewater into the river.
The municipal cleaning and disinfection system consists of 14 cleaning stations, but the installations have long been outdated and ineffective. They are physically damaged and do not function properly. The government is well aware that a solution is needed. The aim of the project is to install 5 automated membrane units for cleaning and disinfection of sewage waters from 5 main polluters.
Membrane units for hospitals provide absolutely disinfected water that is free from any large and small physical admixtures and can be safely discharged into the river. Engineering Institute of Membrane Technology and Techniques development and installation, Membrane The importance of trees in purifying the air, as natural resources, for maintaining the ecological balance, and in providing shade and nutrients to the soil is well known.
New Delhi, the capital of India, was once one of the greenest capitals in the world. It was also one of the few capitals that could boast of a forest in its midst. Slowly however, things changed. The green areas of the city including the forest started shrinking due to developmental activities such as construction and mining.
A need was felt to bring this to a halt. Tens of thousands of school children have participated in the project. The idea was to educate children on tree planting, its science and its philosophy. The children then act as agents of change, trying to change the city culture, trying to convert the city from one which cuts trees to one which plants and protects them. Clean India, a nationwide program on environmental assessment, awareness, advocacy and action, is spearheaded by school students.
It aims at understanding the importance of native trees, developing a dry garden in the school, taking up tree plantating and understanding the need to care for and protect mature trees. Smart Energy Policies The main aim of the REACT project is to develop innovative, nationally adapted policies and programmes that will enable faster and more cost effective market transformation towards Renewable Energy use.
The 31 case studies that have been assessed during the course of the project deliver a clear message: These agencies are actively involved at a national level in monitoring the implementation of energy conservation and management of renewable energy programmes.
The 16 minute broadcast assesses the current situation in Ireland and highlights what national improvements can be made in a bid to conserve energy and comply with European directives. The series also examines the policies that have been successfully implemented in other member states. The use of TV as the medium of communication allowed for the quick diffusion of the series. Renewable Energy TV Series The aim of the project is to accelerate the uptake of Renewable Energy across the EU by more effective and more widespread communication means.
Using the most powerful communication means available, TV, the series has been a huge local success. Using TV as the medium of communication allowed for quick diffusion of the four-part broadcast.
The new series will be broadcasted across the EU and will be available in seven languages. Fuel Efficient Stove Project Along with their children, women in Haripur one of he five districts in Hazara, Pakistan collect wood from distant mountainous areas for fuel purposes. This practice has existed for centuries with no control or regulatory mechanism, thereby decreasing the forest at an unprecedented rate. According to provincial forest resource inventory, the deforestation rate in this region is more than ten percent, which, if not controlled, will render the province without any forest by The Fuel Efficient Stove Project was introduced to reduce deforestation and create awareness among the rural communities for the conservation of precious natural resources and for environmental protection.
Furthermore, they invented fuel efficient stoves FES that generate heat in a smaller area and are well insulated by a mud and brick enclave, resulting in less fuel wood needed to generate the same amount of heat as in an open fire. The reduced amount of smoke resulting from FES compared to open fire cooking reduces the amount of harmful gas emissions contributing to the greenhouse effect. Moreover, the FES project offers special workshops for women to introduce this fuel-efficient technology.
The goal is to make clean energy a mainstream product. Starting in , Smart Power coordinated with the Clean Energy States Alliance CESA to create an advertising campaign to increase public awareness of clean energy in targeted states across the country.
Success of the advertisement was based on tracking polls, which they continued to take throughout the campaign. It is exemplary not only as a demonstration of cutting edge sustainable development but also of the successful conversion of derelict historic buildings to provide a contemporary head office and visitor accommodations of the highest caliber.
Components such as the hybrid PVT array and the seasonal heat store have never been used in a commercially driven project.
The combination of PVT, heat store, space heating and borehole cooling has never been undertaken before. Using renewable energy in order to create a zero emission building is also innovative. Sunny Solutions Solar cooking is the only smoke-free cooking technology available in Kenya. The World Health Organization states: This way of cooking makes the risk factor the second biggest environmental contributor to illness and death, behind unsafe water and sanitation.
Solar cooking one meal a day, three times a week has been proved to reduce fuel-wood consumption and related smoke by one third. The proposed project is an extension of current activity in a nearby rural area where there are now over solar cookers, 17 sales representatives and 3 solar cooking related businesses.
SCI has promoted the use of simple, low-cost solar cookers since Their projects have empowered 40, families in refugee camps in Kenya and Ethiopia to cook with the sun. The aim of Sunny Solutions Kisumu is to expand the spread solar cooking and water pasteurizing in and near Kisumu through local enterprises to achieve here the same success as in the other parts of the country.
CO2 Solution — First-generation industrial prototype of CO2 capture CO2 Solution is an environmental biotechnology company that develops a technological platform for the treatment of carbon dioxide within the context of climate change. The project describes a first generation industrial type prototype. Inside a reactor, the inventors exploit the enzyme capacity to catalyze in aqueous environment the transformation of CO2 into bicarbonate, a harmless product. In harmony with the environment, this technique is totally secure for humans since the biochemical reaction used is the same that allows CO2 transportation and elimination in the human body.
The first generation industrial prototype constitutes the first phase of a major project that will develop through successive scale-ups.
In this first phase, the prototype treats about liters of gaseous effluents per minute. Their first globally recognized international project is the preservation of the Amazon River dolphins. The overall purpose of this project is to construct and demonstrate a technique using floating platforms for growing fresh vegetables, and at the same time collecting potable water.
Their ultimate hope is to instill an alternative method for getting the proper nutrition needed without having to destroy the land by using pesticides or burning down rain forest in order to gain space.
Bioclimatic Sports Centre, Wageningen Sports centers usually pay little attention to solar energy or saving energy in general. This project aims to demonstrate a sustainable and low-energy sports center and the possibility of integrating solar energy into this type of building.
This new center consists of two sports halls, an office, a canteen and an indoor climbing wall, all situated around a central area the plaza in the heart of the complex. The plaza is an unheated outdoor area and its glass roof contains transparent PV modules.
The design of this building is based on the idea of integrating environmental technological aspects such as solar energy. The solar chimney is part of the bioclimatic ventilation system of the center. The glass roof, stretching up to 24 meters, covers the climbing wall and also acts as a ventilation shaft. After running into a number of obstacles, he began investigating alternatives, including a kW wind turbine and twenty-five microturbines combined heat and power which generate electricity and provide the heating and cooling needs for the plant.
Furthermore the company has installed a heat-recovery system. Two years later they began to exchange the hydraulic equipment for the all-electric servo-driven molding machines. Most importantly, the company cut its greenhouse gas emissions from the molding operation, also account for the use of renewable electricity and the use of environmentally friendly vehicles.
Harbec Plastics has created a demonstration website to courage others to copy their concept. Ecological and Environmental Training in Rural Azerbaijan This project will be implemented in the southern regions of Azerbaijan Republic.
There the Kur and Araz rivers flow into the Caspian Sea. The population living in this region has no ecological knowledge regarding causes of serious environmental problems.
The government started reforms but these do not cover the rural regions at all. Moreover the population does not obey these arrangements. This project aims at educating the population and giving them knowledge about the danger of chemical by meeting the community leaders in order to organize trainings about environmental issues. Further plans call for meetings with the communal department of each region. In the past the Upper Siran was covered with abundant coniferous forests.
However, the situation has rapidly changed during the last decades. The population has doubled during the past 20 years and people still rely greatly on the forest as a main source of living. Besides using wood for their daily lives, forests are one of the few opportunities to earn income in this area.
The aim of this project is the conservation of forests and other natural resources. To achieve this objective, the project seeks to place the management of the forests in the hands of the local communities, who in the past had only limited user rights.
These committees are a tool for the communities to manage the forests jointly with the Forest Department, thereby increasing their responsibility and ownership and securing a sustainable utilization of forests and other natural resources.
The Himalayas are among the most threatened mountain ecosystems. The main objective of the project is to enhance the research capacity of forest investigators and to conduct research on temperate conifer forest eco-systems in order to provide a solid basis for sustainable land use and nature conservation.
The focus on capacity building and the creation and enhancement of ownership of knowledge in Bhutan through participative program formulation and implementation processes will guarantee sustainability in terms of problem solving capacity of stakeholders in this region.
He holds university degrees in agriculture and forestry. He is also an expert on renewable energies and an environmentalist with all his heart. Masango is especially concerned about reforesting Mount Cameroon. Where dense forests once used to provide an animal and plant habitat, today there are only barren mountainsides because 90 per cent of the local population need wood for cooking several times a day and in great quantities.
Masango knows that there is only one possible solution to this problem: Providing local communities with more efficient cooking stoves that use 50 per cent less wood. There was and still is nearly no support from local administration or the private industry. The media also ignored his efforts and appeals.
So Masango Sone had to start at the very beginning. He began by concentrating on 5 communities with the goal of providing 70 per cent of local families with more efficient cooking stoves. The materials for the stoves were obtained locally. The people were then trained in using their new stoves. Still, repairs are necessary now and then. However, once the program was begun, Masango received a lot of positive feedback.
Wood consumption went down, cooking time went down, the families began to save more money, and kitchens are now free from fumes and grime. New jobs are being created in the region. Still, there is even more potential for improvement, Masango Sone feels. One particular concern is related to financial squeezes due to materials, transportation and personnel costs.
KBC Company and its local partners have been commissioned to undertake this work through benchmarking and detailed and walkthrough energy audits. In the study phase of project about energy conservation opportunities were found. Implementation of these project results in Decreasing 1. New generation of anaerobic waste water stations for a clean and healthy future Waste water from households and industry damages the environment when it is dumped into rivers and lakes.
Conventional water treatment methods are expensive and inefficient and they themselves pollute the environment. Anaerobic biofiltering waste water treatment systems provide a solution to this dilemma.
Water that flows through such a system is cleaned without additional disinfection and after treatment it can be returned to waterways without environmentally damaging side effects. The system is simple in structure and the process is fast. Because the process uses no electricity and no fuel, so its operation is also environmentally friendly. The project is currently being implemented. NOP - New Chemistry The traditional course content of chemistry classes must change to achieve better awareness of sustainability within the next generation of professional chemists.
Issues like atom economy, energy efficiency, waste, renewable feed stocks and eco toxicity are discussed. Immer auf der Suche nach Energiesparpotentialen. Always on the search for energy saving potentials. With alternative ideas to a cleaner future! Our innovative system will recover waste water from bathing, doing dishes and laundry to benefit us in so many ways: The waste water, stored in a tank; will be reused to flush the toilet; thus saving on clean water.
The kinetic energy of the waste water will be utilized to produce electricity. Agriculture is the most important source of income and it is carried out very extensively and without any thought to the environment.
Agriculture is a question of day-by-day survival, and a long-term perspective in favor of nature has no place in the thinking of the local population. The consequences are fatal: Exhausted soil and increasing crop failure, which equals less income and ever more poverty. It has been a steady downward spiral but this is about to change. The project director is agronomy specialist Jean-Mark Ackermans. He only believes in one single solution: A sustainable design of the entire production chain and creating more awareness in people.
He is also convinced that we must live in harmony with others and nature. CDI-Bwamanda is mainly offering training in new cultivation techniques where agriculture is combined with reforestation agroforestry.
The wood will later be used for brown coal production in future years. In addition, hectares of palm oil plantations between the newly planted forest corridors are being cultivated. Last but not least, the km road network is being improved which will make it easier to transport the products to Kinshasa and other larger cities.
The rest is through contributions and government funds. Approximately farming organizations , members will directly profit through better crop yield, higher income and the creation of more jobs in a region where 85 per cent of the people are living below poverty level.
CDI-Bwamanda is a program offering hope and a more optimistic outlook on the future. The daily struggle for survival is being turned into a predictable, sustainable and rewarding agricultural system.
Honey is a much sought-after product in Congo. The farmers will then support the conservation of forests even more. Jean-Marc Ackermans is convinced that creating a better awareness of the environment is a task that never ends. Enhancing secure and clean water in rural villages, with treatment, solar heating, construction of spring wells, pit latrines, water harvesting and conservation structures.
The project entails, educating local residents in rural villages on water treatment by boiling using solar energy, filtration using cheaply and locally available filter straws and chlorination. Open spring wells and pit latrines are constructed to reduce water contamination during rain season, when faecal matter human waste and other wastes are washed down to open springs and other sources.
Improved water harvesting is constructed in schools, structures such as weirs, pans, dams across rivers, and fishponds at lower end of wells. Children and women cover long distances to fetch water for the rest of the family many times a day, in containers of about 20 liters. Basic hygiene measures are not respected. It is worth noting that women and children are the direct beneficiaries of the project. Like in many developed cities around the world, Singapore is a tiny island country state but housed a 5.
Unlike the public housing where the estate is excellently managed by the state government, these private estates are managed by residents who stayed within and have volunteered their service as the council members for their respective MCST Management Corporation Strata Titles. These private councils are formed usually between council members in their respective estate with people from different working background and experience. With their limited time as volunteer, as weil as commonly lack of technical knowledge in buildings, the management works will largely depends on the Managing Agent MA who is commercially appointed to manage the estate daily administrative and maintenance works.
For upgrading and improvement works, not only the MA needs to seek approval from these volunteer council members, they also have to seek majority vote approval from the entire estate in their yearly Annual General Meeting AGM. Hence implementing Energy Saving Project in Private Estate becomes a big challenge for consultants not only on the technologies applied, but also the long and uncertain project time line, including managing a large pool of residents with different expectation.
Energy Partnership has successfully implemented a series of Energy Saving Project in a few large scale Residential projects, and Southaven II Condominium is specially selected herein as a show case project that has achieved an astonishing Hopefully with this successful replicable project, it could do its little part in aspiring other developers, estates and organization around the world in optimizing the energy usage in their luxuries estates.
Our Solution to Rural Electrification e. We believe that technology can be the solution to many problems we face today, and that electricity provides a fundamental basis for a good quality of life. Our projects aim to be financially sustainable, both to our customers and to the initiator.
Poor practices, overdependence on commercial inputs and chemicals exacerbated the situation, impacting heavily on the environment ad therefore caused nutritional insecurity and the resultant perpetual poverty. The lack of knowledge of a sustainable method of farming was identified as a major factor and as a result COSDEP intended to impart sustainable organic farming skills to the small holders in the area.
Solar School in Kargyak The project Solar School for Kargyak aims at providing education for children in the remote village situated m above sea level in Himalayas. As part of this project, a sustainable, low-energy building of the school was designed and built using exclusively only local natural materials. All the construction work was planned with the local environment and ecology in mind.
Local people and the aid of domestic animals covered all the work. The school was handed over to the villagers of Kargyak in September The water at this point is diverted into pipes and flows through a Pump-As-Turbine that transports the energy to a generator and produces electricity.
The electrical energy is fed in the net and is then available for use. The implementation of this project was possible under the frame of the German Renewable Energy Act and has increased the energy efficiency of the plant. The conceptual development is now complete.
A first venture contribution is in principle available, and the rest is being sought. The additive is characterized by combination of non toxic ingredients and can be used in any kind of petrol fuel. We have provided testing on both gasoline and diesel fuels. Notable that the additive is efficient in a fuel of any octane rate. Green charcoal is clean-burning that helps reduce indoor pollution, and helps lower costs of cooking fuel. Production technology is simple, replicable without copyright restrictions , and affordable.
The production process provides employment to villagers. Because enough sunshine and rain is available in Rurenge in the north-east of Rwanda, the only question was how to put these available resources to their best use. Hronicek decided to not only build an infirmary but also to look for user- and maintenance-friendly solutions to provide water and energy for the infirmary.
They wanted to put solar energy and rain water to use especially during the rainy season. The rain is collected in gutters and then stored in water tanks and cisterns with a total capacity of 12, liters.
Ultrafiltration and water revitalization are used to reprocess the water and use it for essential drinking water all year round. Thanks to an ultrafiltration system provided by Sansystems from Vorchdorf, Austria, no chemical reprocessing is necessary.
A power buffer for the night is provided through a no-maintenance battery. The system is modular, low maintenance and easy to operate, which is very important because no maintenance staff and no one with technical expertise is available there.
Steinmair, whose most important goal is to get businesses to rethink their approach towards energy and the environment, is married with three children. He enjoys a lot of different things, one of them being his job. He also considers it his duty as a human being to offer sustainable solutions to the people of Africa. He has made the Robin Hood principle his own motto in life. Humberto is a specialist in environmental management and forestry engineering. Columbia produces a lot of coffee, which is good for the economy but a burden on the environment, especially for the rivers where all the highly polluted production waste material ends up.
Humberto Mazuera had a great idea for how to alleviate these problems, to which he has been devoting all his time and energy: He found a way to turn all these waste products into bioethanol even before they reach the rivers. Its capacity is at to 1, liters of ethanol a day made from 8, to 12, liters of coffee sludge, a brown, mushy and highly polluting substance from washing coffee beans. Up until now these suds ended up in the River in the Cauca Valley and ruined everything alive.
Now everything has changed. Polluting coffee sludges are turned into bioethanol which is useful for everyone because the ethanol runs a 5kW generator that supplies the local population and the farmers with power. It is used for cooking and as fuel. And the remains of the distillate is used as fertilizer and feed supplement. This system works in all coffee-producing countries. This is why he would like to share his recycling system with everyone. So he goes and talks to the coffee farmers and convinces them.
There is still much for him to do because there are 1, coffee farmers in Sevilla and Caicedonio along the Rio Pijao. There is much to be achieved the next five years. There are three plants with a total output of 1. Better harvest yields and affordable clean energy create more income. The local drinking water supplier, Acuavalle, is now offering support because clean drinking water is their business. Saving Forests in Burkina Faso through Biomass Briquettes The population in the cities is on the rise, therefore production and consumption habits in Burkina Faso are changing as well.
This also means an increase in energy needs. Wood continues to be the main resource for households and all other traditional activities such as construction. The consequence is large-scale deforestation and the disappearance of indigenous trees and shrubs.
Biomass briquettes will help create green jobs and stop deforestation, but they will also help increase the quality of living for the local population and protect the environment. New eco-stoves will replace open fires and fuel-inefficient stoves. Community members were actively involved and a management committee was installed.
Helping Ninja Gold Miners in Mongolia Help Themselves In Mongolia there are more than , illegal gold and coal miners commonly referred to as Ninja Miners because they work under very dangerous conditions.
There are no safety precautions for handling cyanide or mercury. Mercury poisoning is very common. These workers receive no medical attention. Violation of human rights is the order of the day. No help can be expected from the police. Protecting the environment is not a topic. People are only concerned about day-to-day survival. This needed to come to an end. Badarch Mendbayar, an ecologist and director of the Mongolian Nature Environment Consortium, became active and developed an aid plan for the afflicted miners of the Zaamar gold mines, but also for the environment.
This would put an end to the inhuman system of exploitation. Then the miners needed to be taught safe ways of handling toxic elements and getting some basic medical knowledge. They also needed to learn about their rights, which they could then assert before the mine operators as far as working conditions were concerned. And finally they needed to learn how to organize themselves, for example as an NGO for Ninjas, which would help them legalize their status as far as residence permits, voting rights and entitlement to claiming benefits, for example, sending their kids to school, were concerned.
The challenges were enormous. A passionate chess player, Mendbayar proceeded step by step and move by move, and he reached most of his goals. As a consequence and through the pressure he and his consortium exerted, mining laws were amended, the miners received legal residency, and the environment was included in the laws. The Ninjas learned how to handle toxic materials and how to provide medical help for each other. He even succeeded in organizing a Ninja NGO.
NGO members now train other Ninja miners. Mendbayar increased his PR efforts and has recently contacted Energy Globe. He is working on creating more awareness and would like to receive much more support for his work, especially in form of financial help.
From experience he knows that is extremely hard to get people to work towards one common goal. And he knows what he is talking about. The center offers training for anyone associated with the solar energy sector, such as private enterprises, individuals, government authorities, NGOs, as well as for students.
This project is aimed at introducing solar energy to the general public and making it possible for people to no longer have to live in darkness.
The classes conclude with a test and with the award of certificates for one of three achievement levels ratings: By establishing a regional supply chain and offering maintenance services, households and village communities will become increasingly aware of solar energy as well of the advantages of associated products and services such as solar refrigerators and freezers, solar water pumps, solar light systems, etc.
This project also creates jobs, supports a clean environment, improves education levels and health facilities and offers a better life for Ghanaians.
Solar Tunnel Dryer for Industrial Application Solar poly houses collect solar energy and the inside air may be manipulated in terms of required temperature and humidity by regulating air flow through it. Same principle has been used to design and develop natural and forced convection type solar tunnel drying system for large scale application.
The solar tunnel dryers have been put up for bulk drying of fruits, vegetables, spices, surgical cotton, rose petals, animal feed, chemical and other agro-industrial products. The batch size varies from few hundred kgs to more than a tonne in most cases.
In the process, industries have also saved large quantity of commercial sources of energy electricity and petroleum fuel and reduced emission of green house gases. In this project attempts have been made to demonstrate natural and forced convection solar tunnel dryer at farms and agro industries for large scale drying of their products.
The house has very low energy needs that can be met from entirely natural materials. This is not only a very environmentally-friendly project, but also one that creates living space in a natural and harmonious way for people as well as the environment. Inside and out the house is plastered with loam. The roof consists of a 40 cm thick layer of straw and a clapboard truss. The building is heated by an oven on the main floor that is also used for cooking.
The oven reaches all the way into the second floor where it turns into a chimney and provides glowing warmth for up to 12 hours. The only electricity needed is for light, the washing machine, the fridge, and the water pump.
His goal is to provide his country with new technologies and highly qualified jobs, but he wants to support the environment as well. More precisely, Miroslav designs energy-autonomous mobile phone masts that use wind and solar power. His systems are designed especially for rural areas without electricity grids, where environmentally unfriendly diesel generators are in use. For over one year now, his prototype is providing cell phone users in Bosnia-Herzegovina with clean radio signals from on top of 1, meter high Mount Vlasic.
And there is a huge potential out there. Worldwide there are approximately , transmitting stations run by diesel generators , of them in Africa alone. This figure will rise to , within the next five years.
The number of grid-independent transmitting stations will be growing by about 30 per cent per year. Within the next five years there will be a demand for an additional 1. Half of these transmitter stations will run independently of any power grid. His work mutually benefits people as well as the environment.
He gets his inspiration from fitness training, hunting, and hiking. He also enjoys being socially involved in local clubs and associations. Environmental Education by and through Math What do school math and environmental education have in common? Nothing, up to now. However, high school student Nikolay Velichkin has given the question some thought and came up with a solution that combines both topics.
He wrote a book that helps readers understand how you can calculate savings through environmentally-conscious behavior.
With his book Nikolay is killing two birds with one stone. On the one hand he is helping people understand how to save energy and on the other hand he is teaching them how to calculate such savings.
Students will be able to see which measures are the most effective, how you can monitor your own behavior, and how to solve ecological problems. He is totally motivated to write more educational math books for other grades. The price per book is 10 dollars. The father of a daughter and grandfather to a grandson is a fluid mechanics engineer who spent many years studying at the University of Pittsburgh and Cambridge University.
With more than 80 inventions and innovations credited to his name, Mikhail Poleacov is a true Gyro Gearloose. He is the recipient of 10 gold and silver medals as well as 36 diplomas. Currently, he is performing experimental studies for the Czech Windrose sro. His specialty area is wind power. The project Mikhail submitted to Energy Globe is another one of his inventions: You just need to find more applications for it.
Although wind power is already very popular in Europe, it is only used for average wind forces. But could one also use very small wind forces? An innovative wind turbine with a vertical axis.
The rotary motion of the turbine is independent of the wind direction. The advantages are convincing: The turbine is small, elegant, light, stable, and easy to install. The rotors are five times smaller than those of conventional systems. After testing in the wind canal, this turbine even survives hurricanes. It is also completely silent and that is what makes it especially attractive to the military.
It is mounted on the top of buildings where it silently but constantly generates energy. The prototype is complete and has been patented. Now Mikhail Poleacov is building a small-scale factory for manufacturing his turbine and looking for global marketing and financing options. First he needs to convince more investors, a challenge that Poleacov is accepting with wise equanimity.
Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Less Impact on the Environment and Helps Save Money Like all other citizens of Lebanon, Ali Fardos was confronted with the perpetual problem of constantly rising fuel prices. But as always, necessity again was the mother of invention. Fardos, a graduate of an aeronautics college in the United States, came up with the idea of mixing diesel with different amounts of water in a power generator.
After two and a half years Ali had found the solution: A tenside that stabilizes the gasoline water mixture and makes it useable for commercially available vehicles. The mixture is so stable that it can be stored for more than four months.
But then Ali Fardos faced his next problem: Obtaining an official permit to sell his fuel in Lebanon. But the father of two got lucky. Not only was he able to patent his idea, he even got a sales permit. His invention solved several problems in one fell swoop: A small quantity of water is added to the water and stabilized with tensides. The resultant milky mixture is filled into the gas tank of a car, where the water lowers the combustion temperature and the required octane level.
This results in fewer exhaust emissions and a more efficient diesel combustion. Another advantage of the mixture that Fardos has been using for his SUV for two years already is the fact that storage is less dangerous than for usual fuels. Fardos sells his diesel mixture under the name of Ecofuel and would like to initiate a similar project in Mozambique, and after that in South Africa, Canada, and the Dominican Republic. He is especially proud of the fact that a Danish company agreed to become his licensee.
He enjoys reading and listening to music. Salah works in the paper industry. He holds a doctorate in chemical engineering with a specialty in cellulose processing and paper technology. In Sudan there are huge amounts of waste paper and cartons.
At the same time, Sudan imports per cent of its paper, meaning that no paper at all is manufactured in the country. Salah is worried about all this waste, the high rate of unemployment, the high cost of paper import and the related negative impact on the environment. All these problems have motivated him to start a paper recycling project, because the energy expenditure for manufacturing recycling paper is two-thirds less than that of manufacturing new paper.
Waste paper is used for carton production. In this factory, a new and environmentally-friendly technology is applied in reprocessing fiber. This technology is based on 1 rearranging hydrogen bonds, which helps improve reactivity and capacity, and 2 re-enforcing the recycling fibers in terms of quantity as well as quality: This new technology assures durability, at the same time protecting the environment.
It also uses by far less water and energy and helps increase productivity. With the exception of paper tissues, this technology allows for interminably recycling any kind of paper. He would also like to implement this successful idea in other countries because he is convinced that this is the most effective method of recycling waste paper.

Ahmed also took into consideration that villagers will have a hard time changing old habits, so he designed the device in a way that it will also work in a traditional manner by using it with firewood.
The device works in a similar fashion but by far more efficiently. Other advantages are easy maintenance, and simple and replaceable components. Local materials were used for manufacturing. His multi-functional device costs 30 per cent less than systems with one single function. The biggest challenge for Ahmed was reconciling the conflict between traditional skills and technical knowledge.
To date, Ahmed has designed and built 15 kinds of his In-One system. It has been patented in Egypt. The prototype is ready; marketing has begun.
Companies from the U. But this is no reason for Ahmed to begin dragging his feet, because his principle is striving for perfection through innovation.

They were manually constructed long time ago and mostly abandoned during the Soviet era. The men who are knowledgeable in this skill are called kankans. IOM has trained about members of the local population as kankans and many of them are employed for the rehabilitation work. From the mother-well, teams of four to five men dig well-like vertical shafts from the original water source every 20 to 35 meters and then connect them through a sloped tunnel.
The water then drains relying on gravity and reaches its destination without using any additional energy. The water discharge from one kahriz can be as high as liters per second. The quality of the water is excellent.
Once a kahriz is rehabilitated, it has a nearly unlimited life cycle. They contribute to diversification of agricultural activities and sustainably improve the quality of life for the local population.
Similar water systems exist in nearly 40 other countries around the world. In the future, IOM will also support these countries with experience and expertise gained in Azerbaijan.
