Global warming poses a serious threat to our planet. If we don’t do our bit to safeguard the environment, future generations may have to pay a heavy price for it. Adopting green technologies or using eco-friendly green products are a few things that we can do to make sure that we do not cause any further damage to the environment.
Here is a list of some innovative and interesting environmentally-friendly technologies that can make a difference.
Zero-energy Homes – Several home owners in California have built zero-energy homes that combine energy-efficient construction and practices. They not only reduce the energy demand by up to 70 percent by means of latest energy-efficient technologies, but also generate all the electricity required from photovoltaic solar panels.
Motion-powered Speed Bumps – In this method, energy is generated each time a car passes over the bump from its weight and movement. These energy-generating speed bumps make use of long think pedals whose movement generates around 2,000W of electricity per car.
Oil Gone Easy S-200 – This is an oil stain remover that makes use of an environmentally-friendly technology called bioremediation. This product does not contain any harmful chemicals and degrades the harmful hydrocarbons in the oil using the bacteria present in the atmosphere. Using such eco-friendly green products that make use of green technologies will help protect our environment.
Sewage-powered Fuel Cells – In this environmentally-friendly technology, bacteria used in the treatment of sewage in waste water treatment plants are used to generate electricity.
Energy Curtain – This energy curtain does more than just provide shade; it provides light. The outer side of the blind has special solar energy-collecting cells, which store up energy during the day and and provide light during night. All that needs to be done is to pull down the blinds during the day for it to charge.
