10 innovative green projects

They are ecological projects , with an innovative green approach, although they are oriented to different aspects. From recycling to the use of green energy for the most curious uses or, for example, in order to advance in the increasingly wide universe of renewable sources.

And it is that green is fashionable , and not for insignificant reasons. The reason or, if you will, the many reasons that make ecological an increasingly high priority on world agendas are related to something as fundamental as the preservation of the planet. That is, with the peremptory objective of protecting biodiversity, conserving resources and, finally, the balance of the planet for current and future generations.

Let’s see 10 surprising projects that are current, precisely because they are determined bets for a greener world without giving up development. A dozen small great examples that are proof of how much progress is being made on the green path of progress.

Solar powered floating bridge

It is a floating pedestrian bridge that can be moved where necessary, since it moves as if it were a ship, since it also has sails. Designed by Margot Krasojevic Architecture on a government commission for the city of Ordos in Mongolia, it is very light and powered by a propeller powered by photovoltaic cells.

New lithium ion battery from Japan

new battery lithium – ion battery developed by the Japanese company GS Yuasa allows to increase the autonomy of electric vehicles small in an important way. With a single charge, you can basically double the distance, almost 350 km, although it will depend on the car in question.

It is expected that it can be commercialized in about three years. As the company has advanced, it will be developed under the name Lithium Energy Japan thanks to the creation of a joint venture with Mitsubishi.

Low-cost battery generates power with saliva

Producing electricity through saliva is not a joke. Not even a possibility, but a reality, according to the results of a new low-cost battery invented by scientists at Binghamton University in New York. It is an invention that is intended to orient to facilitate access to energy in remote areas or in regions that have suffered natural disasters .

Biodegradable car made of sugar and flax

The cars biodegradable not have to be unviable for use in road and proves this invention. Except for the wheel system and suspension, the rest of the components are of biological origin, coming from products such as beet sugar and flax.

According to its creators, students from the Eindhoven University of Technology, the result is a light car, with a resistance similar to fiberglass, which reaches 80 kilometers per hour, which would be ideal for urbanites .

Convert used aluminum into biofuel

Scientists from Queen’s University of Belfast in Northern Ireland claim to have invented a technique capable of turning aluminum foil into biofuel . To do this, they must extract the toxic part so as not to create emissions or waste that are counterproductive to health and the environment.

Pedal-powered solar car

Mö is the curious name of a car no less unusual , made with sustainable materials and powered by pedals, in addition to having a sunroof that makes it a true sensation of the road. Although, as is easy to guess, this nice vehicle created by Evovelo is a car designed for the city.

Bag made with cassava starch

Kevin Kumala, a young biologist from the Indonesian island of Bali, has created a bag made of cassava starch that takes only 100 days to biodegrade , compared to hundreds of years for ordinary plastics. His company, Avani Eco, puts on the table a proposal that can help to considerably reduce the harmful effects of plastic on the environment.

Storing green energy with salt and antifreeze

One of Google’s most recent challenges, known as the Malta project, aims to achieve an efficient solution for renewable energy storage. As is well known, this is a serious problem for these energies, by nature intermittent, which acts as a drag when it comes to boosting them.

His proposal consists of the use of cold and hot antifreeze, combining both methods, to achieve an economical storage (more than the current lithium ion batteries) that really solves the problem in a better way than other existing proposals. A great goal that still has a long way to go to achieve it.

Machine that turns plastic into oil

Another way to reduce the environmental impact of plastic is to use a machine that transforms it into oil. Created by the Japanese company Blest Corporation, it manages to transform about a kilo of plastic into a liter of oil, potentially for both industrial and domestic use.

Wooden motorbike powered by algae

The Dutch designer Ritsert Mans and the biotechnologist Peter Mooij have created a truly unique motorcycle, both because it is made with ecological materials, especially wood, cork and hemp, and because of the fuel that feeds it: algae oil. Their goal, to draw attention to a little-known type of sustainable fuel and, without a doubt, they have succeeded.
