Upcycle your Broken Windshield

Windshields take a lot of landfill space. And new glass manufacturing contributes to global warming. New glass requires energy and transportation-intensive mining. Manufacturing new glass uses intense heat in an already warming climate. Recycling windshields saves valuable and declining landfill space, releases zero CO2 and cuts the carbon footprint.
The eCO2 watch: Your Personal Carbon Remover
Created 1/28/2009 8:35:28 AM 
The eco-friendly concept watch features a kinetic-energy powered scrubber that collects carbon dioxide and expels clean air, effectively erasing the personal carbon footprint of the wearer. The device would allow each individual wearer to effortlessly do his or her bit for the environment, and if worn collectively, it has the potential to make a powerful positive impact.

 After being thoroughly used in the deep fryer, waste vegetable oil (WVO) has traditionally been disposed of in landfills or wastewater treatment plants. Microbes then digest the oils and release methane and CO2. In diverting this fuel source from the landfill and making use of used cooking oil to produce electricity, the same amount of CO2 is created. However, it is possible to harvest a significant amount of useful energy instead of throwing it away!
Get Rich Harvesting Fuel from CO2 Emissions

Thanks to Al Gore, we all know by now about the increasing concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and the resulting impact on global climate. Now, 2 researchers from UCSD have developed a prototype device that can capture energy from the sun, convert it to electrical energy and “split” carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide (CO) and oxygen.

Many of the things that we do increase the emissions of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Whenever we burn a fossil fuel to drive our car, heat our homes, make hot water, or provide the electricity, we inject it into the atmosphere. Other industrial activities, such as manufacturing cement, emit significant amounts as well. What if we could take the CO2 from a power plant, and sequester it into commonly used, and quite resilient, products? Carbon based plastics are already sold each year, so they are not a new product. However, using emissions to create those plastics is a new and exciting idea.

Algae is the cheapest, highest yielding feedstock for biofuels and biomass for energy. It accumulates waste toxins, grows from polluting waste, does not require conversion of food crops to energy, does not lead to deforestation, and voraciously consumes carbon dioxide. Algae can produce lipid oils for biodiesel, carbohydrates necessary for ethanol, generate hydrogen, generate methane for electrical generation, be used as fertilizer, animal feed, and co-firing in coal electrical plants. Best of all, the energy produced by algae products is carbon neutral as the algae biomass is produced from CO2 in the atmosphere present today.

Concrete is the most widely-used construction material with over ten billion tons produced annually. About 7% of global CO2 emissions come from concrete production. The primary source of these emissions generated by concrete manufacturing is Portland cement, responsible for about 77% of total CO2 emissions. Now a sustainable substitute for concrete is being developed by civil engineer Dr. John Forth from the School of Engineering, University of Leeds, in the UK.
Eco Plastic Startup recycles CO2

Novomer re-uses carbon dioxide as a major input in a low-cost, precision-quality, chemical process that produces polymers, plastics and other chemicals. The company is building the partnerships to turn these materials into environmentally friendly, green synthetic products that can replace and improve the role of plastics.
