5 Green Technologies in Development

Most businesses are trying to find more and more ways to become environmentally friendly, but some tech companies have taken things to the next level. Here are five green technologies that are designed to make a huge difference in the world.

Pop-up solar power station

The Ecos PowerCube provides energy, water and communications to people in remote locations. It can fit inside shipping containers for easy transportation and once unloaded, its solar panels extend out storing energy in on-board batteries. There is an on-board water treatment and distribution system, internet connectivity and satellite communications. The manufacturers plan is to make the PowerCube available for disaster relief aid, power in remote locations and military applications. For more info seeEchosphere Technologies.

Ekocycle Cube by 3D Systems

This 3D printer can print new designs using plastic like water bottles and other post-consumer waste. Coca-Cola and Will.i.am support this machine and have collaborated with the project for a  number of years. The printer can produce phone cases, guitar picks and other useful items making it a great way to reuse plastic.

Pollution-fighting billboards

The University of Engineering and Technology of Peru has developed billboards that can purify 100,000 cubic metres of air every day. The technology relies on water which purifies bacteria. These billboards have been developed after the success of the university’s billboards that convert humidity into drinking water. With these, moisture from the air is processed through a filtration system and can produce 96 litres of water a day. The university’s website is here.

 Floating wind turbine

This helium-filled wind turbine will produce enough electricity for more than a dozen families in Alaska. Designed and built by MIT startup Altaeros Energies, the turbine known as BAT-Buoyant Airborne Turbine will hover at an altitude of 1,000 feet for 18 months, catching air currents that are five to eight times more powerful than winds on the ground. The company hopes to use these wind turbines in disaster relief aid, remote areas and military operations in the future.

The Earth Home Builder

United Earth Builders has built a machine that fills earth bag tubes at a rate of 400 feet per hour (compared to 30 feet per hour by hand). It can bring affordable housing to people that need it – fast. By using earth, housing can be built with a fraction of the materials a regular house uses.

Don’t forget that Carbon Voyage has its own green projects and you can find out more here.
