1) Green Cars
- The fuel used in the car is of the right grade.
- The exhaust gas of green cars contain less harmful chemicals or no chemicals at all.
- The renewable source of fuel used to run the vehicle.
- Electric cars considered more fuel-efficient.
- Hybrid automobiles use less fuel and receive power from lithium-ion batteries, and fuel. The car has three different modes of operation i.e. 1. Car Battery only. 2. Fuel. 3. Battery and fuel.
- Compressed air cars powered solely by compressed air, or can combine with gasoline, ethanol, or diesel to power the vehicle.
- Zero emission vehicles (ZEV) or also called as sterling powered automobile absolutely no pollutants at all or have zero emissions.
- Electric powered vehicles or pedal powered vehicles also show positive results in producing an eco-friendly car.
2) Green Nanotechnology
- The study includes the replacement of currently existing manufactured products that are causing harm to the environment with nanotechnology products, which will decrease the risks caused to the environment, and human beings.
- Due to the life-cycle of nanotechnology products, they become environment-friendly products.
- The nano-products aim of providing solutions to problems related to the environment.
- The collaboration techniques of green engineering, and green chemistry, toxic-free products manufactured.
- The current manufacturing of conventional products altered by using nanomaterial to cut nature hampering compounds.
3) Green Information Technology
- Strategical initiatives that aim at reducing the overall carbon footprint of a company’s computer operations.
- Green IT should focus on corporate agenda by changing the culture, and structure of the organization.
- Information technology processes should involve embedded green IT.
- The IT infrastructure should emphasize on lower emissions and low power consumption.
- The organizations should work along on power utilization efficiency.
- The companies should move towards cloud computing, virtualization.
- Many companies are looking forward to employing green IT.
4) Wooden Computer Chips
- The wooden computer chips have potential to replace non-biodegradable, or toxic chips that used in the current microprocessors.
- The chip coated with epoxy and made from cellulose nanofibril.
- The chip is biodegradable in a landfill.
- The chip is a solution to e-waste.
- The chip does not expand or attract moisture due to the epoxy coating.The working principle is the same as the conventional chips.
5) The 100% recyclable mouse called Corky
- Adele Peters is the designer.
- Functions include scrolling, clicking, moving forward, moving backward.
- The functions are similar to the usual mouse.
- 100% recyclable materials have utilized in the manufacture of this mouse.
- The mouse is wireless.
- The mouse does not require batteries.
- The energy generation is through kinetic energy.
- The user’s hand movement of the gives rise to kinetic energy.
6) The battery manufactured from cardboard
- Tsung Chih-Hsien’s awarding winning concept.
- The battery capsule size is tiny.
- The small power capsule is biodegradable.
- The energy capacities vary from 2, 4, or 6 hours.
- The paper battery used instead of metals.
- The batteries are recyclable.
- The batteries are compatible with all cell phones.
- The new batteries can replace old ones.
7) Light Build Have a lifetime of 37 years
- The creator of the light bulb is Dyson.
- The light bulb lamp made of LEDs.
- The heat dissipation by heat-pipe instead of round heat sink.
- The phosphorous coated LEDs protected by removing the heat from the aluminum heat sink.
- Twelve hours of use per day will result in four decades lifetime of the lamp.
- The lamps have incredible brightness. – The purchase of bulbs eliminated.
8) 3-D printer buildings
- Enrico Dini’s is the inventor.
- D-shape printer used.
- The entire building built from single solid rock.
- The device uses layers of sand instead of ink.
- The time duration of the building construction is four times faster than regular building time.
- The cost of the whole project is one-third the actual cost of the conventional cement used for construction.
9) Shoe power generator
- The power generates from footsteps.
- A small generator placed in the sole of the shoes.
- The user’s movement causes the piezoelectric effect, which gets converted to electricity.
- The electricity generated from movement of the shoes is then used to power low voltage electronic devices.
- Low-cost polymer transducers replace the heel shock absorber.
The designer of the shoes aims at providing more voltage to power sensors, and other devices.
- The sprays invented by the Norwegian company.
- Translucent windows converted to solar-panels.
- The solar film sprayed on the windows which convert the solar-rays into power.
- Transparent composite matrix has metal nano particles embedded in it.
- The spray works on any surface of the house.
- The manufacturing process of windows can add sprays.
- The spray used on the car roofs.
- The efficiency estimated at 20%.
