  • Roots MVR Evaporator

    Type: 
    Product

    1. The main principle of Mechanical Vapor Recompression (MVR) is a direct compression of the evaporated vapor to higher pressure thus temperature so it can recycle energy for the heating process in the Evaporator which results is a low consumption of energy. 2. MVR is a distillation process where evaporation of sea or brackish water is obtained by the application of heat delivered by compressed vapor. The MVR system is an energy efficient solution since only 50KWH of electric power per ton of fresh water is required which is merely 5% of required energy for boiling water.

  • SUBSTRATE GEOMETRY FOR THREE DIMENSIONAL PHOTOVOLTAICS FABRICATION

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    The present invention is a substrate geometry for 3D photovoltaic fabrication with an electrode geometry that is robust against defects in lithography so as to allow less expensive patterning approaches. The thin film photovoltaic device has an outer semiconductor disposed to receive light and first and second contacts disposed in different layers with an insulator between the contacts.

  • Parabolic Solar Concentrators Using Optimized Bands

    Type: 
    Product

    This invention allow flat mirror elements to be easily fabricated and efficiently packaged and shipped to field sites and assembled into the parabolic trough concentrators with potentially substantial costs reductions compared with conventional methods. The mirror is formed from a thin flat very flexible metal sheet with a highly reflective surface. Attached to the rear surface of the mirror sheet is a backbone band whose figure is optimized to form the reflective sheet into a precision parabola when its two ends are pulled toward each other.

  • Efficient method of generating heat and electricity from agricultural waste

    Type: 
    Product

    Researchers from the University of Belgrade have developed a furnace for the combustion of biomass hay bales with automatic fuel feeding which enables an efficient controlled and continuous combustion process. The system uses agricultural by-products in standard bales form from fields to create thermal energy. It can be used for the production of thermal energy only (for heating and industrial purposes) but also for the combined production of heat and electricity (CHP facilities).

  • Home appliance recycling technologies

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Hitachi Group harnesses its accumulated experience and achievements to offer diverse support for the introduction of home appliance recycling technologies: including the development of a business model consultancy on business development technology transfer patent licensing and introductions to partner companies in many countries.

  • Remote Sensing of Subsurface Soil Moisture

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    Researchers at Purdue University have developed an instrument/software that allows remote sensing of surface soil moisture from an airborne instrument using reflective electromagnetic radiation. This can provide the most efficient method to collect measurements and survey an entire field with high spatial density in a short period of time. It makes use of lower-frequency signals which are required to penetrate the soil. Resolution is determined only by the frequency of the signal, under the assumption of a near-specular reflection, not the antenna size.

  • Solar Dryer for Multipurpose Drying Needs

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    Food losses cause a waste of precious resources, including land, water, energy, agricultural inputs, and human labor, used in the production of the lost food. Food loss is caused by a lack of low-cost, effective drying technology to dry food. Currently, over 95 percent of smallholder farmers use open-air drying to dry their crops. While dryers exist, there remains a void for products that are designed to target smallholder farmers.

  • Water Harvesting Lakes and Reservoirs

    Type: 
    Product

    Water harvesting campaign to enhance rain water harvesting and reduce runoff into the river. Contaminated rain water is stored in flexible tanks of various sizes to conserve it sieve it and purify it for use. Water pans accumulate the water and then is directed to the tanks for storage and treatments.

  • ECO CIRCLE(TM) Plantfiber

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Since ECO CIRCLE(TM) Plantfiber is created from a bio-based material that has replaced some of the structural components of PET resin it contributes to curbing fossil fuel use and CO2 emissions. What is ECO CIRCLE(TM) Plantfiber is 1. ECO CIRCLE(TM) Plantfiber is a material created from bio-based (sugarcane) which has replaced some structural components of PET resin. 2. Since the materials are partly plant-derived they can help curb consumption of fossil fuel resources. 3. It helps reduce greenhouse gases.

  • Cetane number improvement additive for diesel or biodiesel fuels

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Research team from the established Slovak University of Technology developed an innovative additive for improving cetane number of diesel and biodiesel fuels. Improvement of cetane number has significant effect on the reduction of ignition delay of fuel engines. The additive is based on bio-components making it possible to increase the quality of fuel fully ecologically. Cetane number is a significant factor in the quality of the diesel fuels and has direct effect on reducing the fuel ignition delay after the injection into the combustion chamber.
