La plante verte qui alimente votre box Internet | Sustainability | Scoop.it

Des étudiants français ont mis au point une boite abritant une plante et des bactéries, capable d'alimenter en énergie certains de nos appareils électroniques. Récompensée par le prix ArtScience 2013, cette invention repose sur le principe de la pile à combustible microbienne, également développé par des chercheurs néerlandais.

Innovation in renewable-energy technologies is booming | Sustainability | Scoop.it

The number of patents issued for renewable-energy technologies has risen sharply over the last decade, according to new research from MIT and the Santa Fe Institute (SFI). The study shows that investments in research and development, as well as in the growth of markets for these products, have helped to spur this dramatic growth in innovation.

Electrolux HandCleaner

Electrolux HandCleaner | Sustainability | Scoop.it

Electrolux HandCleaner was designed based on the technology of luminous plasma gas, also used in TVs and electrical lamps.

By an electrical stimulus the same plasma gas can also be used to clean the hand’s impurities, through a combination with the existing gases in the atmosphere.

Due its rechargeable battery, the HandCleaner can be used multiple times during the day.

The device is made of a polymer body and activation of the systems is by touch.

The electrical current and creates the plasma. This plasma reacts with oxygen, nitrogen and water steam – found in the air – to destroy bacteria, fungi and viruses without harming your skin.

Electrolux HandCleaner is the intelligent mobile solution for sterilization of hands.

Wind4Water, de l’eau potable produite par le vent

Wind4Water, de l’eau potable produite par le vent | Sustainability | Scoop.it

Près d’un humain sur neuf n’a pas accès à de l’eau potable dans le monde, ce qui favorise l’apparition de nombreuses maladies. Le projet Wind4Water pourrait faire évoluer la situation en fournissant de l’eau à moindre coût produite à partir d’une énergie renouvelable. L’idée de base : associer des unités de filtration-dessalement à des éoliennes de taille modeste.
