With the leaps and bounds, the technology is growing its volume, it’s highly essential to see that this technology doesn’t harm the environment. It is cardinal to realize that the ecosystem of the world should not be disturbed. Let us now walk through five of some very useful eco-friendly technologies which are going to pave the way for a greener world in the future.
We all know that transportation plays a significant role in almost all the sectors. And all means of transportation need fuel to run. But at the same time, it is important to notice the pollution caused due to the usage of fuels like petrol, diesel, kerosene and other types which cause heavy air pollution. The best and the most efficient substitute for these fuels are the biofuels. Though their existence dates back to the past few decades, they haven’t been used to great extent. But now, the time has come to use the biofuels like natural gas, to reduce the impact of pollution on the environment.
- Rooftop Wind Energy
Windmills have been in use in many parts of the world, for the generation of electricity. But, these windmills involve massive investments, and the nature of the projects is also large scale. Hence, the wind energy is not being utilized to the maximum extent. Research is being done in this field to enable the usage of wind power by each and every household. This could be done by the rooftop projects, wherein the machines will utilize the wind power and convert it into power and are installed on the top floors of the buildings and houses.
- Electric Cars
Cars are the most extensively used means of road transportation in almost all parts of the world. This is because of the number of members which can travel is more and even the speed of the car is also optimal. The number of persons using the car as their primary means of transport is increasing day by day. Thus, it is very important to regulate the usage of fuel, which in turn controls the levels of pollution. As an alternative to the cars which run on fuel, cars which run on electricity are going to be major projects shortly. This paves a way for controlling the levels of carbon-di-oxide, lead and many other harmful chemicals which deplete the ozone layer.
- Algae Biofuels
Biofuels certainly help in reducing the pollution levels. But the investments to be made in developing the biofuel production are enormous. This is because of the complexity involved in the manufacture of biofuels. They require large areas of land and the most extensively used biofuel is the corn ethanol whose reserves are very less because of the complicated procedure involved in producing and storing it. Algae biofuels form the perfect replacements for the corn ethanol. This is because; growing algae is easier and also do not need special nurturing to grow. The size of the land required is also less when compared to other crops. Thus, steps are taken in this direction of producing such algae biofuels.
- Thin solar films
The efficiency of the solar panels is calculated based on two factors- 1. The percentage of solar energy is converted into electricity and 2. The cost involved in manufacturing solar panels. If any of the two factors is imbalanced, it means that the solar panel is not efficient. Thin solar films come to our aid in such conditions. These films involve fewer costs of productions and yield more units of electricity. If these solar films prove to be more efficient and economical than the solar panels, then it would be a milestone in the field of renewable energy sources
