Blockchain for tracking solar energy generation

Blockchain for tracking solar energy generation

Sello Sol a certification developed by Phineal  allows tracing the solar energy generation on its place of origin through the use of blockchain technology. The data is measured and processed to add value by using it in products, services and transactions as verifiable, transparent and secure information. Phineal states that the blockchain methodology has been tested by companies and public institutions and it is being developed in Latin America for the world

Building energy automation

Nordomatic provides solutions for building automation focusing on “smart buildings” and energy efficiency in larger properties. Nordomatic’s concept is based on an approach towards heating, cooling and ventilation, which it refers to as ‘brilliant energy building automation.’ The concept entails utilising all the surplus energy which is generated in a building but often not utilised. The concept takes into account the property’s shell, giving each property a unique thermal inertia, which is utilised through optimised control.

Carbonlites – innovative biogas production

Carbonlites – innovative biogas production

Globally, 11.2 billion tonnes waste is generated every year and is amongst the biggest threats affecting our ecosystem. Solid waste dumped at landfill sites produces large amount of methane, which accounts for 12% of total global methane emissions. Carbon Masters have devised an innovative way for managing the organic waste by collecting and converting the waste into useful fuel. Waste is collected and then treated anaerobically to produce methane gas and organic slurry. The gas is purified, compressed and used as a substitute to LPG for cooking and as fuel in vehicles, while the slurry is treated to produce organic manure used as a replacement to chemical fertilizers.

Castor Bio-based Aviation Fuel

Castor Bio-based Aviation Fuel

Tianjin Castor Energy has developed the castor bio-based aviation fuel. The technique can produce high bio-aviation fuel yields by hydrodeoxygenation , hydro-cracking and hydro-isomerization reaction, and the properties meet the standards ASTM D7566. Moreover, the products do not contain sulfur, phosphorus and heavy metal. The company claims that the cleanliness and low-temperature fluidity of the bio-aviation fuel are superior to those of petroleum-based aviation fuels. The raw material supply is wildly available making it one of the most cost-efficient bio-based aviation fuels so far.

City-integrated bike sharing platform

Donkey Republic developed and deployed a hub-centric bike sharing platform. The hub-centric model uses designated parking locations for the pick-up and drop-off of rentable bikes. A hub is defined by the GPS coordinates of a point and a radius (e.g. 10 meters) around that point within which riders can drop off a bike. This allows local authorities to control the use of public space, easily monitor locations and influence fleet distribution and growth. Users can count on bikes being available at specific locations. The Donkey Republic system is enabled by the communication between a mobile app and an electronic ring lock placed on the bike, via a low energy Bluetooth connection.

Cold-rolled ribbed steel bar with high ductility

Anyang Heli Techtronic Metallurgy New Technology Co., Ltd have developed cold-rolled ribbed steel bar with high ductility. It combines the technology of cold plastic deformation and recrystallization heat treatment to enhance the strength of steel bar, and then improves its ductility with heat treatment process to eliminate residual stress and repair the microstructure defects. The company claims that, compared to traditional hot-rolled technique, their technology saves about 40% of energy, as well as alloy materials, such as vanadium nitrogen, manganese silicon. Furthermore, to produce a ton of steel with their technology could save 130 kwh of power, as well as 9.3 kg standard coal, and cost near zero amount of water.

Converting desert to fertile soil

Converting desert to fertile soil

Through Desert Control’s patented mixing process, Liquid NanoClay (LNC) combines clay and water and is then spread onto sandy soil. It enables the soil to retain water, turning desert into fertile soil. Production of LNC happens on site. Cultivating sandy soil into fertile land normally takes from seven to fifteen years, whereas Desert Control’s LNC accomplishes that in just hours. One application of LNC lasts a minimum of five years and only natural products are used during production, without the use of chemicals.

Cost-competitive solar heat though optimised lenses

Cost-competitive solar heat though optimised lenses

Heliac’s solar collectors produce utility-scale heat at unsubsidized costs they claim is below that of fossil fuels anywhere in the world. By using inexpensive lenses that work like magnifying glasses and generate temperatures up to 400 °C, Heliac targets process heat markets responsible for 15% of the global demand. These markets include desalination, district heating and cooling, and heat for numerous other standard industrial processes. Heliac believes their solution is scalable enough to meet any potential demand today. Their first 2 MW solar field is in operation in Denmark producing heat for district heating.
