Environment-friendly inventions that are saving the Earth
After centuries of harm caused to the environment, humans are beginning to realize the consequences. The damage is done; it will take years to put the stop on the damaging acts and centuries to minimize the effects. Efforts are finally being made in the right direction. The innovative technology seems to be on our side. The long-termed combine efforts will prove to be fruitful. Below are some of the inventions that are helping the environment.
Plastic bottles turned the bulb
The half-life of plastic is very long and the process of degradation is slow. The smart utilization of these bottles is to turn it into the bulb. In the low lying areas of the developing countries, this usage is very helpful. The self-charging solar bulb is placed in the plastic bottle to do the job. In daylight, it charges and at night it gives light. This is the effective utilization for lamps and street lights Mr. Trash The dumping of waste in water contributes to water pollution and affects marine life. Mr. Trash is a cruise that wanders in the rivers collecting trash and junk within itself. The friendly design allows water passage without disrupting marine life. Until now, several tons of trash from the river has been cleared by it.
Sea bin is like a dustbin but in the sea. It a cylindrical designed equipped with a pump that allows the
slow flow of water through it. The flow of water also brings in the trash with it, which is then collected at the bottom of the bin. The inside of the bin is removable. It allows the easy emptying of the bin without removing the whole equipment.
As the name suggests it a small scaled turbine. The benefit lies in the ease of use near a water source. Due to the small size of it, the machinery is able to produce electricity even when the water is moving slowly. The production of energy is reliable and environmentally friendly. One turbine is capable of producing electricity enough to power a small house.
Bio-degradable plastic bag
Biodegradability is a major concern when it comes to plastic bags. When discarded they are not degraded for a very long time. The technology has allowed the scientist to develop plastic like bags from starch. When in the water they are easily dissolved and the starch content is often consumed by the animals.
