Green Technology Guide
Although the first supercomputers might not stand a chance even against the smartphones of today, nevertheless, they too have evolved like everything else. With their supernatural computational and analytical abilities, they light the way for the computers of the coming generation. However, just like their abilities, the requirements of the supercomputers are also extreme. Even simple computers have high electricity requirements. Supercomputers take this to a brand new level. You need a range of air conditioners, coolants to keep them cool. Add to that their operational costs and you have a very huge carbon footprint. Nevertheless, so as to one day make more computers of this capacity for commercial purposes, companies are coming up eco-friendly supercomputers to tackle this problem.
According to research, the modern man spends about 90% of his time indoors. Moreover, the research also states that nowadays people are more likely to suffer from allergies partly owing to the buildings they live in. These buildings leave their residents more vulnerable to harmful substances like asbestos. These, in turn, end up causing everything from fever to asthma to common-cold to even cancer. Therefore, we should try to switch to eco-friendly building materials that are suitable for both the environment and our health. Keeping this and many other things in mind, the construction industry is being fast taken over by green technology with a lot of talks about its benefits being held among building tycoons. At the heart of the concept lies a formidable construction punch list to ensure durability, health, and sustainability; which could eventually put less stress on humans as well as the environment.
Right now, we are suffering from multiple environmental issues. If we focus on when then we can be sure than there are others that would go unnoticed. Cities, in particular, are facing two very threatening problems. First, we are not sure whether we would be able to fulfill our rising energy needs in the future. Second, we are creating so much waste that we would soon run out of places to dispose of it. Nevertheless, there are ways which might not help to solve the problems, but would surely bring some relief. Biosphere technology could prove to be one such thing.
In their search for a highly efficient renewable source of energy, scientists are trying all that they can. Apart from going for solar and wind energy, they are also exploring many other alternatives as well. While doing this, they have provided us with many alternatives. From tidal energy, geothermal energy to utilizing even Hydrogen Fuel Cells, they have found many viable alternatives. However, now they are going even further with their knowledge. Scientists have even found a way for generating electricity from sound. Here’s everything you might want to know about it.
The two main important issues of the future are going to be the rising temperature and water crisis. All the other important issues would come out of them or would result in them. Therefore, these are the two issues that we would ultimately have to solve. However, strange as it may seem, these two issues also link to each other. Although it would be hard to control global warming, nevertheless, when it comes to the water crisis, we can surely do something. There are ways of desalinating the sea and ocean water, but these might prove expensive. Keeping this in mind, scientists are coming up with ways of using AI and robotics for controlling water pollution as these might help to prevent potable water from mixing with pollutants. So, can these AI inventions help reduce water pollution? Let us analyze the whole situation.
If you have any practical experience with renewable energy, you might know that things are not the way they seem. Most of the times, we do not get the energy that we expect from such sources. Myriad unknown factors come into play and disrupt their efficiency. As of now, the best thing we can do is prepare yourself in such a way that these factors don’t affect our energy output. In the case of wind energy, for example, you can use these 9 technologies to improve wind turbine efficiency.
The Internet makes starting and managing businesses easy, be it contacting the client or delivery of services and products, everything is possible from a notebook, tablet, even smartphone. Features of world-wide-web aka internet are the same for all of us, we can open the same website that you can, without paying anything extra.
The industrial revolution gave us a lot of comfort and convenience but also led to an unimaginable negative impact on the environment. Reducing the use of natural resources is imperative, but the world now has to focus on green technologies which will help to keep pollution down in the future. Some eco technologies are in their nascent stages but they show great promise, and some are already in use. Take a look at these eco friendly technologies which can replace the old tech, which allow us to hope that a brighter future for our planet is possible:
Talk about eco-friendly lights, and it can’t get any greener than this – literally! Scientists at MIT have made a breakthrough in making the watercress plant glow in the dark. The day is not far when you could have a plant as your reading lamp. Instead of working in the light of LEDs, you may just be able to work in the illumination of a plant. They would add beauty to your workspace, and make it bright enough so that you won’t have to resort to any artificial light. Read on to find out more details:
