Eco-Friendly - Green Technology

Eco-friendly green inventions - renewable energy technologies, recycling, biogas, alternative transportation and other sustainable technologies.

Introduction to Green Inventions
What can be considered a ecofriendly green invention.

Alternative Energy
Alternative energy or renewable energy sources - such as wind and solar energy — are constantly replenished and will never run out.

Biofilters Biofiltration
Biological treatment or biofiltration is now the mainstay of wastewater management systems. Patent applications for odor control using biofiltration have been filed since the 1950s for soil filters and large biological trickling filter plants.

Hydrogen Fuel Cells
In 1839, the first fuel cell was conceived by Sir William Robert Grove, a Welsh judge, inventor and physicist. He mixed hydrogen and oxygen in the presence of an electrolyte, and produced electricity and water.

Solar Cells
A solar cell is any device that directly converts the energy in light into electrical energy through the process of photovoltaics.

Solar Cars
The goal of zero emmission levels for cars has increased interest in new solar battery technology.

Wind Power - Wind Turbines
Wind turbines produce electricity from the energy of the wind power.

USPTO Expands Green Technology Pilot Program
Yeah, now that the world is on the brink of destruction the USPTO is improving its green technology program. Meaning more categories of technology will be eligible for expedited processing under the program.

Green Inventions
Solar-powered leds, eco kettles, green roofs, ice energy, and wind turbines are a few of the available products described in this article on green inventions.

The Air Car
A vehicle powered by compressed air offers a lot of advantages in comparison with a normal combustion engine or an electrical motor. The first recorded compressed-air vehicle was built by the Frenchmen Andraud and Tessie of Motay in 1838. At present (2008) various persons and companies are developing compressed air motors applicable to transportation.

The Cleantech Network
As we conclude the first decade of the 21st Century, stresses on the global economy from rising inflation and slowing growth in developed economies are being compounded by the impacts of climate change. Clean technologies hold the promise of addressing these challenges, and doing so by generating superior returns along with job and wealth creation.

The Permaculture Institute
Permaculture (or permanent agriculture) refers to the inclusion of perennial agriculture in eco-friendly design innovations that can be applied to home gardens, large scale farms, or green urban areas; and includes orchard management, water harvesting, watershed restoration, natural building, and more.

Beginners Guide to Biogas
Biogas refers to a gas produced by the biological breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen. Biogas plants provide an alternative energy source.

Green Festivals
Green Festivals promotes ecology and green inventions via events and learning seminars.

History of Electric Vehicles
An electric vehicle or EV by definition will use an electric motor for propulsion rather than being powered by a gasoline-powered motor.

History of Electric Vehicles
In the history of electric vehicles, electric cars had all but disappeared by 1935, the years following until the 1960s were dead years for development. Why?

History of Electric Vehicles
The history of modern electric cars and other electric vehicles after 1990.

Life During a Black Out
When your electricity is turned off and you endure a black out that lasts for days what is it that you miss the most?

Introduction to Biophotovoltaics
You can not get any greener technology than biophotovoltaic devices based on the photosynthesis of living organisms, namely plants. Science has started to harness the energy of light by letting plants do what comes naturally, derive energy from the sun.
