      • Heat / Growing

        Composting to create hot water - See how nature can supply you with 130-150 degree warmwater from a composting in the process of keeping the pile at a low enough temperature to produce and store methane generated from the compost pile. (Hackaday; May 23, 2010)
      • Storage > Batteries

        Air-fuelled STAIR battery could last ten times longer than traditional cells - The revolutionary 'STAIR' (St Andrews Air) battery cells are charged in a traditional way but as they are discharged, an open mesh section of battery draws in oxygen from the surrounding air which reacts with a porous carbon component inside the battery, which creates more energy and helps to continually 'charge' the cell as it is being discharged.

      • Waste to Energy > Ethanol

        Companies Transform Scrap Cardboard Into Ethanol Fuel - A new partnership between a paperboard mill and a biofuel producer is now producing ethanol fuel from scrap cardboard fiber, including the 5% portion that usually enters the waste stream. The cardboard ethanol is expected to emit 80% less carbon emissions than regular gasoline. (Inhabitat; May 31, 2010)
      • Oil > Ecological Impact > Remedies

        Microbe Solution Restores Environment in Just Six Weeks - The Texas Land Office and Texas Water Commission successfully used 'oil eating' microbes to clean up large oil spills in just weeks. Microbes hunt down and eat the toxic oil and leave only a biodegradable waste that is non-toxic to humans and marine life. Marshland and beaches were pristine again in just weeks.

      • Lighting > LED

        Affordable, High-Performance LED Bulbs Finally Hitting the Market - Major lighting companies are working tirelessly towards becoming the first to own the LED market. In the next few months, 60-watt equivalent bulbs in the $30 - $40 price range will be hitting the shelves. In comparison, just two years ago, a 60-watt equivalent cost $90 and a 100-watt dimmable bulb went for $360. (EcoGeek; May 18, 2010)
