Environmental technology, otherwise known as clean tech, green tech, or even enviro tech is the practise of environmental science, green chemistry, or monitoring the environment in an attempt to improve the natural environment, limiting the impact of human damage to our Earth. Environment tech is used for sustainable development such as wind turbines, or tidal power based environment technologies.
Examples of environment protection technology include:
– Doubly fed electric machine
– Energy conservation
– Energy saving modules
– Electric vehicles
– Wave energy
– Green computing
– Wind power
– Wind turbine
– Hydrogen fuel cell
– Ocean thermal energy conversion
– Solar power
Combined these efforts could entirely power the whole world with absolutely no requirement for the burning of fossil fuel whatsoever. Current trends are win turbines and solar power. We currently believe these to be the most efficient methods of harvesting the energy we need to sustain our way of life. Amazingly just 18 days of solar radiation equates to all the energy available on Earth. It is a massively under used technology that we must expand upon for the good of our children. The environment cannot continue to sustain use of dirty fuel sources and neither should it with the amazing advances in tech we are facing.
Wind turbines are being used at sea and it’s making an unbelievable improvement in the amount of coal we burn to make our electric at power stations. There has been a side impact that no one could of ever considered. Because of the cost and danger involved, no fishing is allowed within the turbine areas. This is providing natural spawning grounds to fish and as a result helping natural stocks and levels.
Solar power is not being applied to common homes and is become ever more affordable. Until everyone is self sustainable the grid can even take the excess electric from your solar and will in some cases, even pay you for it. The amount of solar panels required to power your home will rarely be more than your roof meterage. The typical home can be powered by as little as 40% solar panel coverage. There is a challenge to workout how we will handle large apartment blocks, with concentrated power requirements, and small meterage of roof space. It’s a challenge environment protection technology will embrace, and it’s quite like the solution will be more towards energy conservation and minimising wasted power in the apartment or condo.
Environment technology focuses on human waste and has five broader subjects:
As we’ve discussed renewable energy can reduce our reliance on dirty fuel sources to zero and need implementing, researching, and developing as soon as is possible.
Water purification can be carried out by as a bi product of heating in some industries. Where cooling may be required, clean water can be produced for drinking. This is a direct saving to the environment and will also accommodate desalination.
We can tackle poor air quality by growing plants in and around our home. The impact of every home maintaining a garden of shrubs and plants would see a dramatic improvement on the environment.
We must work out a way to clear our human wastes and make use of the nutrients so that we can create a circle of life.Energy conservation.
We are working on everyday home technologies which are improving the comfort of our ambience whilst saving us money. Common energy conservation in the home is sash window draught proofing, door draught proofing, double glazing existing sash windows and uprated boilers with thermostats. These vital upgrades improve the quality of our period and modern homes whilst reduce the impact on our environment. To take a look at the possible energy savings and costs of we should consider a basic price calculation. A normal sash window is draught proof for a very reasonable £200 per window while repairs will set you in anywhere between £120 and £300 if you have rotten parts to deal with. The higher end of this range would reflect a bottom rail and sill being removed and spliced new.
