An important way to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that transport produces is to encourage and enable people to travel less. People travel less overall when they switch from private vehicles to public transport, walking or cycling, for reasons that will be explained. They travel less if their work is closer; if shops, health services and education are closer; and if family, friends and leisure activities are as well. They travel less if several purposes of travel can be covered in one trip, which is more likely if the places they need to visit are closer.

Background: Lehigh University has developed a forward osmosis separation processes using magnesium oxide and carbon dioxide. The invention can purify water through a Forward Osmosis process from both surface water and saline water. The invention can concentrate waste from a dilute waste stream. Technology Description: In various applications it may be desirable to concentrate species of interest which are present in solution.
The team led by Professor Chanwoo Park at the University of Nevada Reno’s Department of Mechanical Engineering Sustainable Energy Lab has developed a novel evaporator tube design that utilizes a multi-tiered effect to promote a superior efficiency and performance. Technology SummaryEvaporators are industrial devices used to concentrate solutions particularly utilized in systems with heat sensitive components. The team’s current research is focused on developing an exceptionally efficient two-phase heat transfer closed-system design.
Acess to onshore acreage for setting up wind parks will be limited due to the current development of parks and competition with other needs such as agriculture housing air traffic radar and plain esthetics. Acess to shallow water sites are limited and a large part of the world’s coastline has little or none. Wind speed and continuous operation are of key importance to park owners. At offshore locations winds blow more continuously with a higher wind speed.
Organic Solar Cells: Cost effective and highly efficient renewable energy is becoming ever more important due to the rising energy prices and the serious issue of global warming from burning fossil fuels. Solar energy is a non-exhaustible and green energy. Solar cells are being developed as a promising solution to the energy crisis and environmental pollution. Third-generation organic solar cells offer a promising alternative to First- and Second-generation inorganic solar cells due to their low cost easy fabrication and compatibility with flexible substrates over a large area.
