    The Global Environment Centre Foundation (GEC) is an entity that supports the UNEP’s International Environmental Technology Centre (IETC), based in Japan. GEC is dedicated to the transfer of environmentally sound technologies, in both developing countries and countries with economies in transition. The foundation aims to contribute to Japan’s international efforts on the environment, sharing project collaborations as well as promoting Japan’s rich conservation knowledge and experience in developing nations.

  • Electret-Based MEMS Device For Harvesting Energy From Nearby Energized Conductors

    Type: 
    Product

    There is great potential for small low-cost wireless sensors to pervade society such as sensors for electricity grids environmental pollution and emergency situations. However to realize this ubiquity these sensors must have low-cost long-life power sources. Harvesting ambient energy has the potential to meet the needs of these wireless sensors.To address this opportunity researchers at UC Berkeley have developed a new type of energy harvester. This Berkeley harvester obtains its energy from nearby energized conductors.

  • Novel Method for Microbial Screening for Improved Biofuel Production Process

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    The invention improves the biofuel production process by providing a novel method for the screening of generated phenotypes of process organisms. Whereas previous methods to express heterogonous genes leave much of the genetic information unable to be screened this method instead enhances heterogonous gene expression through specifically engineering the transcriptional machinery of the host organism. This engineering involves manipulating the host machinery with sigma factors and RNA-polymerase (both essential to the transcription process) of the donor organism.

  • Variable Valve Actuation Method to Enhance Combustion and Reduce Engine Emissions

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    In four-stroke engines intake and exhaust valves open during the engine cycle to introduce air into the combustion chamber prior to combustion and to release exhaust gases once combustion is complete. Valves are typically opened and closed by a mechanical cam-drive mechanism with timing dictated by rotation of the engine’s crankshaft. Recently a new technology has been introduced that uses an electronically controlled solenoid to open and close valves.

  • Filter Press and Membrane Filter Plate for industrial wastewater sludge municipal sewage sludge drink water sewage sludge river and lake dredging

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Filter press and filtration integration which combines slurry filtration process research control system design filter press production and system commissioning service. Suitable for environmental protection mineral processing chemicals food and pharmaceutical industries etc. The Sludge Deep Dewatering Solution is a system that reduces moisture content to 60% after which the resulting cake can be used for landfill burning brick making greening fertiliser etc.

  • Alternative Approaches for Incentivizing the Frequency Responsive Reserve Ancillary Service

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    Frequency responsive reserve is the autonomous response of generators and demand response to deviations of system frequency, usually as a result of the instantaneous outage of a large supplier. Frequency responsive reserve arrests the frequency decline resulting in the stabilization of system frequency, and avoids the triggering of under-frequency load-shedding or the reaching of unstable frequencies that could ultimately lead to machinery damage or system blackouts. It is a crucial service required to maintain a reliable and secure power system.
