Make Millions, Recycle your Pee

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.

At San Francisco's Cleantech Forum, a conference of investors and innovators focused on the green technology business, a boatload of early stage startups seek to carve off a slice of the billions of dollars venture capitalists are investing in green tech. One participant, Leviathan Energy, based in Los Angeles and Israel, has created a turbine that would create power from the downward flow in municipal water and sewer systems. In other words, whenever you flush, you'd be helping generate electricity.

Rain in one of our main supply of fresh water and has a tremendous importance in the distribution of plant and animal life in this planet, but in congested, over-paved metropolitan cities, most of this precipitation is wash down gutters and wasted. Rain collection has been one method used to gather this gift from the sky and now a new method tries to capture the kinetic energy associated with the falling raindrops.

For as long as the dog has been man's best friend, dog waste has posed a menace to man's nose and foot, not to mention it's an environmental pollutant. At some beaches, dogs help raise bacteria levels so high that visitors must stay out of the water. These disease-causing bacteria that can make people sick and some cities have directed as much as $10,000 in the last few years to encourage dog owners to clean up after their pets. A few municipalities have started issuing citations to those who ignore pet clean-up ordinances.

The paper making industry is widely regarded as one which pays little attention to the environmental effects of its activities. It is seen as using up land, trees, water and energy to make a final product which has a very short useful life. Since the 1970s, public opinion has put increasing pressure on these companies to improve their attitude to environmental issues but the industry still consumes large amounts of natural resources.

The U.N. estimates that 1.1 billion people currently lack access to safe drinking water which is expected to rise. Although we have normally relied on rain, snow or other forms of precipitation for water, it turns out that Australian physician and inventor Dr. Max Whisson has found an alternative route. He’s chosen to make water from thin air.

Although mushrooms were only useful as culinary garnishes (or in some communities as hallucinogenics as well), two students from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y have found a cool alternate way to use them. They created and patented Greensulate, an organic, fire-retardant board made of water, flour, oyster mushroom spores and perlite, a mineral blend found in potting soil, and are hoping the invention will soon be part of the growing market for eco-friendly products.
A Sound Way to Make Millions

Orest Symko, a University of Utah Physics professor and his team developed devices that turn heat into sound and then into electricity. The technology holds promise for changing waste heat into energy. They plan to test them within a year to produce electricity from waste heat at a military radar facility and at the university’s hot-water-generating plant.
Biodegradable Plastics at Last!

Every year US landfills receive tens of millions of tons of plastic, which can take hundreds of years to break down. But all that might change now that an Ohio company has developed biodegradable plastic that begins to degrade only when placed in landfills. Thanks to a new additive, water bottles, garbage bags and other plastic products have become appetizing meals for the microorganisms that inhabit landfills.
