Living Water: Viktor Schauberger and the Secrets of Natural by Olof Alexandersson

By Olof Alexandersson

This can be the tale of a pioneering Austrian naturalist and iconoclast who pointed how you can a very new knowing of the huge strength of usual power. by means of learning fish in streams and by means of heavily gazing the ordinary water cycle, Viktor Schauberger (1885-1958) used to be in a position to remedy easy difficulties of power transformation. He observed that glossy guy, with no knowing it, was once destroying the earth and sabotaging his personal cultures by way of operating opposed to Nature. all of the winning tools of power iteration - from hydro-electric to nuclear fission - produce destructive long term results at the atmosphere and inspire disorder. Schauberger had a transparent imaginative and prescient of the way fertility should be restored to the earth. As an inventor Schauberger built a few inventive machines which might revolutionize farming, horticulture, forestry and airplane propulsion. He built water purification structures, and confirmed how air and water should be harnessed as fuels for lots of machines. His discovery of implosive power and diamagnetism had many useful purposes, so much of that have but to be built.

Biofuels: Securing the Planet’s Future Energy Needs by Ayhan Demirbas

By Ayhan Demirbas

Biofuel is a renewable power resource made out of normal (biobased) fabrics, that are used instead for petroleum fuels. some great benefits of biofuels over conventional fuels contain higher power defense, diminished environmental effect, foreign currency echange mark downs, and socioeconomic concerns concerning the agricultural area. in addition, biofuel know-how is suitable to either constructing and industrialized international locations. For those purposes, the proportion of biofuels within the car gas industry is predicted to develop quickly over the subsequent decade.

The commonest biofuels, corresponding to ethanol from corn, wheat or sugar beet and biodiesel from oil seeds, are made from vintage meals vegetation that require fine quality agricultural land for progress. notwithstanding, bioethanol is a petroleum additive/substitute that may be made from considerable, household, cellulosic biomass assets resembling herbaceous and woody vegetation, agricultural and forestry residues, and a wide element of municipal and commercial reliable waste streams. construction of bioethanol from biomass is a method to lessen either the intake of crude oil and environmental toxins. there's additionally a starting to be curiosity within the use of vegetable oils for making biodiesel, that is much less polluting than traditional petroleum diesel fuel.

Biofuels: Securing the Planet’s destiny power Needs discusses the construction of transportation fuels from biomass (such as wooden, straw or even family waste) via Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. The e-book is a crucial textual content for undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers in power engineering, in addition to specialist gasoline engineers.
