"The boat, called Jellyfishbot, is about the size of a suitcase and so can get into the corners and narrow spaces where rubbish tends to accumulate but which are difficult for cleaners with nets to reach."
The aging of wind turbine blades is an increasingly important issue as many windmills begin to reach the end of their lifespan. According to the University of Strathclyde research, global turbine waste in the United Kingdom will increase five times from 400,000 tonnes per year in 2030 to 2 million tonnes per year by 2050.
"In an ideal world replete with surplus renewable energy, maybe hydrogen has a future because then its inefficiency is negated by its convenience. But we aren’t in that situation right now, won’t be for decades, and might never be...But if our end goal is combating climate change and global warming, the best place for hydrogen is not cars."
"The face of nuclear energy is changing, and one of the companies working to redefine what nuclear energy looks like is Oklo. The 22-person Silicon Valley start-up has a plan to build mini-nuclear reactors, powered by the waste of conventional nuclear reactors and housed in aesthetically pleasing A-frame structures."
"Today, most rice hulls are burnt worldwide–218 billion pounds a year–but cleantech startup Glanris has developed a process to turn rice hulls into water filtration media–a cleantech solution that has the potential to transform both the rice and the water management industry."
One established generation source that is often left out of public energy discussions is nuclear energy, which generates roughly 40 percent of all low-carbon power and, similar to Texas, about 10 percent of total global electricity.
