  • Does anyone know any other "cleantech" sites that pick up news on the innovation front, news on science behind algae or other sources with information i can take a look on? Feels like cleantech is a bit dead for a 18 year old dude like myself =)

  • I personally feel that recycling is one of the most simplest steps that can be taken by a 'busy' individual in an effort to stay sustainably. Especially when it comes to plastic which is the most harmful for our environment. But is recycling plastic as confusing as this article makes it to be?

      The CPCB has undertaken a project in collaboration with Thiagarajar College of Engineering Madurai to evaluate the performance of polymer coated built roads laid during 2002-2006 in different cities. The observations are as below: ❯ The coating of plastics over aggregate improves Impact, Los Angels Abrasion and Crushing Value with the increase in the percentage of plastics. ❯ The extracted bitumen showed almost near value for Marshall stability. The entire road was having good skid resistance and texture values. ❯ All the stretches in the roads have been found reasonably strong. ❯ The unevenness index values of these roads are nearly 3000 mm/km, which indicate a good surface evenness. ❯ The plastic tar roads have not developed any potholes, rutting, raveling or edge flaw, even though these roads are more than four years of age. ❯ Polymer coated aggregate bitumen mix performs well compared to polymer modified bitumen mix. ❯ Higher percentage of polymer coating improves the binding strength of the mix. ❯ Foam plastics have better binding values.

      Well, I am not fully versed with the latest technology, but what I can tell you is that the plasma gasification industry should come out with transparent data on net energy balance and the actual operating costs for the entire project lifetime...most times, when asked about costs and energy balance, the industry experts simply say it is very cost effective and consumes much less energy than it produces...some numbers will sure help investors, what do you say?

      Organics recycling refers to all activities that collect, process, and use organic waste derived materials. A great deal of focus and attention has recently been directed at both on-farm composting (especially from a water quality perspective) and wood waste processing (from an air quality perspective).These are just a few of the elements in organic waste recycling but opportunities to recover more resources grow each day. The varieties of materials and processes that can be processed into value added resources are limited only by technology, innovation, and creativity. New methods and techniques appear in the industry on a regular basis.

      Plasma Enhanced Melter (PEM) System is a technology that convers hazardous wastes into syngas. Thermal de polymerization have been developed to convert plastic waste into crude oil. Tyres, plastics and other non degradable waste are being converted to liquid fuel by the use of High-Frequency Attenuating Microwaves
