Wind energy has become an increasingly important renewable energy source. In 2015 alone, the U.S. wind industry installed wind turbines generating 8,595 MW, a 77 % increase over 2014 , and the market growth is [...]
We have developed a novel nanostructured calcium silicate – calcium carbonate composite material with excellent whiteness, chemical reactivity and physical absorbent properties, from the problematic silica contained in separated geothermal water. It is an environmentally [...]
Seebeck type thermoelectric (TE) generators are one of the promising devices for the waste heat conversion to the electricity as well as the energy harvesters at a temperature range between room temperature and 200 oC. [...]
Sierra Energy aims to eliminate landfills and generate renewable energy by making waste gasification globally accessible. To meet this goal, Sierra Energy developed FastOx®, a gasification technology capable of converting nearly any waste into low-carbon [...]
