Climate change, loss of assets, overpopulation, pollution, improper trash disposal, and lack of water are some environmental problems we face. Still, there is hope. Here are some ideas for making the future a better place to live, along with the people who arrived with them.
Solar Impulse Plane
Engineers: Bertrand Piccard And André Borschberg
The Solar Impulse plane is composed of very light materials. Its wings have 17,000 solar cells that power four electric engines. It can fly at midnight because it has rechargeable electric batteries that may be charged throughout the day.
In 2015 and 2016, the Solar Impulse plane was the first to fly worldwide using only solar power. Its goal was to demonstrate the significance of clean technology and green energy sources and how they can be used.
Max-ai Aqc Recycling Robot
Engineers: Eugenio Garnica, Sadako/bhs (nrt)
Nationality: Spanish And Us
Max-AI uses vision-based GPU machine learning, AI with complex neural networks, and robots to find and pick out reusable plastics from other items. It is built to learn and improve itself on its own.
Max is good for the environment because it will make organizing and reusing things more accessible and cheaper. The goal is to increase the amount of returned and reused materials so that future generations can live in a better, more sustainable world.
AQuarias Wave Energy System
Engineer: Robert Schuster
AQuarias uses the combination of gravity and “buoyancy” between air and water to make the power that can be used to create and make energy.
AQuarias is a cheap way to meet the growing need for green energy worldwide. It doesn’t use any products and has no baseload carbon impact. It can be put almost anywhere on Earth. It might make it possible for cities and towns to take responsibility for themselves.
Salt-filtering Graphene Sieve
Engineers: Rahul Nair
Salt is taken out of seawater by passing it through a barrier composed of graphene oxide. Adding epoxy glue walls to both sides of the membrane prevents it from growing and allows the pores to filter out all particles.
The graphene screen might assist with solving the world’s water-related issues by quickly, effortlessly, and cheaply turning seawater into drinkable water.
Wattway Solar-powered Road
Engineers: Jean-luc Gautier And Colas
Each panel contains 15 cm wide cells that form a fragile polycrystalline silicon film that converts solar energy into power. The plates are covered with a clear silicon resin to withstand traffic and be laid down on existing roads.
Wattway operated by solar energy roads are good for the environment because they use photovoltaic techniques to build roads and generate clean, renewable electricity without taking away valuable agricultural land or countryside. 20m2 of Wattway can power a single house.
Engineers: Charlie Paton And Chris Rothera
The Seawater Glasshouse cools and moistens the air using the mist that forms when salt water melts. Modeling software is used to simulate and improve the design of the growing environment.
The system is good for the environment because it uses the sun and the ocean, which are both plentiful. It is a green way to make more food and help the climate get better while reducing problems and costs.
Engineers: Rui Silva
C2C is a full-scale irregular nickel-carbon supercapacitor that uses water as its medium. It uses a new way to make electrodes out of metal oxides with a honeycomb-like structure capable of storing electrical energy.
C2C’s storage medium aims at offering high-energy-efficient solutions under challenging places, which are essential for a healthy industry’s future. It also continues for a long time, so less has to be thrown away.
Engineer: Eijiro Miyako
Robobee is a drone robot pollinator that can fly itself. It has GPS, high-resolution images, as well as artificial intelligence. On the bottom is a horsehair, and on the top is a sticky gel. Pollen grains stick to it when it flies to a flower. When it flies to the next flower, the pollen particles stick to it and stick to the next flower.
Robobees are good for the environment because they are meant to be used by farmers to help pollinate crops and increase agricultural harvests as our food production needs grow, and the bee population may decline. They can help improve food quality and make their genes more diverse.
Engineers: Pete Ceglinski And Andrew Turton
Technology-wise, the Seabin is a trash can that floats. It gets water from the top and sends it through a bag inside, which captures any trash. A water pump buried in the ground connects to a 110/22v port and shifts 25.000 liters of liquid per hour.
Seabin is made to assist with cleaning up the water by removing trash from piers, ports, boat clubs, and industrial ports. It might additionally capture a few of the oils along with additional poisons that rise in the water.
Insect Wind Turbines
Engineers: Vincent Cognet
The adaptable wings of insects prompted the design of turbine rotor blades made of a flexible substance that bends forward and backward with the wind and rotational force. This continually alters the pitch’s angle, making it more effective.
Flexible blades for the wind are 35% more effective at making energy, which is good for the environment. If these ideas are made real, they could be a safe alternative to fossil fuels as a source of energy.
