Hexagon Shaped Kite Wind Turbine and Vertical Takeoff

In the future it is quite possible there may be cylindrical wind turbine kits generating energy. Well, at least on small start-up believes this to be the case. Indeed, I find such an aerodynamic design a solid platform, but prefer the Hexagon shape with fins, skags, or stall fences a better design over all. No sense in getting into that aerodynamic conversation here, as it could go on for several pages. What I’d like to talk about today is the launching sequence of such a device into the sky.

Generally speaking kites as you know are launched vertically, and for such a device to work properly at some point the angle of attack will need to be lowered to that of the prevailing relative wind. Continue reading Hexagon Shaped Kite Wind Turbine and Vertical Takeoff

Greenhouse Gases and Global Warming

Greenhouse Gases and Global Warming

Due to the undesirable activities of mankind, various environmental issues have started threatening the survival of many living species and also affected the ecological balance. Since there has been a huge imbalance in deforestation and reforestation, the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has increased and this is one of the major factors that have contributed to global warming.

Green houses like carbon dioxide, methane, chlorofluorocarbons and carbon monoxide trap the infra red radiations from the sun and ensure that the earth is hospitable to various living species. Continue reading Greenhouse Gases and Global Warming

Information on a Worm Factory

Information on a Worm Factory

The government has taken up several measures to preserve the environment. One of these measures involves turning organic waste into compost. With the help of worm factory you can do this just by sitting at home without having to put in much effort. You will be able to preserve the environment and prepare compost for your plants at the same time. The main benefit of the worm factory is that they can be kept both indoors and outdoors. Continue reading Information on a Worm Factory

Tubular Wind Turbine Aerostat Alternative Energy Generation Future Concepts

Recently, I looked at a tubular wind turbine aerostat, which had the funny shape of an elongated donut, it was your basic flying wind tunnel venture-tube tethered like a kite. The long cable also housed the power cord and it generated electricity, nice new eco-innovation right? Well, hardly, as inventors and innovative minds have been discussing these things since the 1940s – go look through some old Popular Science Magazines some time.

Anyway, the young kids, grad students who put this non-new eco-innovation together claim it to be some new revolutionary device, and I’d hate to take away their self-esteem. Continue reading Tubular Wind Turbine Aerostat Alternative Energy Generation Future Concepts

The Inner Workings Of Solar Panels

The Inner Workings Of Solar Panels

You can make your own solar panels but in all reality, unless you know what you’re doing, it’s better to get them from the professionals. Nevertheless, you still need to understand that there are currently two different kinds of panels which are crystalline silicon and amorphous silicon. Although both panels are basically made up of solar converting cells that have the ability to convert solar rays of light into energy that we use every day.

Crystalline silicon used to be the most popular only because it was the first of its kind. Continue reading The Inner Workings Of Solar Panels

Bottle Recycler – Promote Glass Recycling And Reduce Waste

Bottle Recycler - Promote Glass Recycling And Reduce Waste

Glass is one of the most valuable materials that we use today for daily living. It is primarily made from molten silica sand and lime, but the process of production comprises a huge fraction of non biodegradable wastes, which does not decompose naturally. Without appliance of chemical process glass will remain the same even after a million years. Continue reading Bottle Recycler – Promote Glass Recycling And Reduce Waste
