Inexpensive Wind Turbine for your Home
Created 9/30/2009 8:43:01 AM 
Wind turbine conjures up the image of three-rotor design on hill-tops and, increasingly, out to sea. These machines work well in high wind speeds and relatively smooth airflows: the technology matches the conditions where they are sited. The remoteness of these locations has allowed ever larger turbines to be built, generating significant amounts of electricity.
How to Generate Energy from Speed Bumps
Created 7/15/2009 8:34:54 AM 
Each single day, enough energy is being produced to light up half a million homes. But sadly, that energy is wasted because there is no technology to capture it. The energy is the kinetic energy produced by the 250 million vehicles traveling U.S. roads daily. One company is developing an exciting new technology that will help capture a portion of that valuable energy.
The Peepoo Bag: A Disposable Toilet

More than 2,6 billion of people around the world has no access to basic sanitation. That means that 40% of the Earth's population lacks even the most simple latrine to perform their needs. This causes contamination of fresh water and ground water because human faces contain viruses, bacteria, worms and parasites which kills and infects people with serious diseases. One child in the world dies every 15 seconds due to contaminated water.
Can You Make Money with Deer Pee?

Deer reproduce quickly - a healthy herd can almost double its numbers during one favorable year. If you are to believe some advocates, an increase in deer hunting opportunities in appropriate areas is one way to help address the effects of expanding deer populations and to ensure healthy, sustainable herds. There are 17 million deer hunters in the USA alone, and the whitetail-lure business - a $44-million-a-year market - keeps growing.
Forget High Fuel Prices: Drive your CAT

A French company has developed a pollution-free car which runs on compressed air and India's Tata Motors has the car under production and it may be on sale in Europe and India by the end of the year. The "air car", also known as the Mini-CAT (Compressed Air Technology ) or City Cat, can be refueled in minutes from an air compressor at specially equipped gas stations and can go 200 km on a fill-up and the top speed will be almost 70 mph.
The Pee-Cycling Business

Urine is the main source of some of the chemical nutrients that have to be removed in sewage treatment plants if they are not to wreck ecosystems downstream. Despite making up only 1 per cent of the volume of waste water, urine contributes about 80 per cent of the nitrogen and 45 per cent of all the phosphate. Peeing into the pan immediately dilutes these chemicals with vast quantities of water, making the removal process unnecessarily inefficient.
The Secret Formula of Pee-Powered Batteries
Created 4/16/2008 7:24:43 AM 
Forget about rechargeable batteries that are plugged to a nearby electrical outlet - there are now Pee Powered batteries that are being tested in Japan. Dubbed the NoPoPo (Non-Pollution Power) Aqua Batteries, these will come in AA and AAA form factors. They are environmentally friendly and do not contain mercury or other harmful materials.
Make Millions, Recycle your Pee
Created 3/31/2008 8:40:24 AM 
We think of human pee as gross and something that ought to be vigorously “cleaned up” or sanitized. However, human urine is actually sterile (unlike faeces, urine is bacteria-free). This liquid by product of our daily lives can be a rich food source if it gets into the RIGHT part of the right ecosystem. Now, most human urine travels untreated into the waterways and the excess Nitrogen and Phosphorus in our urine overfeeds algae (like Red Tide) and effectively suffocates fish.
Harness Energy from Traffic
Created 3/3/2008 7:20:32 AM 
An Arizona State University student has proposed a very novel way of re-capturing some of the energy expended by vehicles moving at high speeds on our nations highways. We all know how much air turbulence is generated by vehicles moving at speed particularly trucks. This would involve mounting horizontal wind turbines above the roadway that would be driven by the moving air generated by the passing traffic. The electricity generated by spinning these turbines could be fed back into the grid.
Turn your Pee into Electricity

Hydrogen gas is seen as a great energy source because it is renewable, does not produce "greenhouse gas" in combustion, liberates large amounts of energy and is easily converted to electricity by fuel cells. One company patented a production method that creates hydrogen from waste water using bacteria in a bioreactor.
