Beeswax Candlewax Rockets Space Rocket Propulsion

Candlewax Rockets: A Green Alternative for In-Space Propulsion Wax-based hybrid rocket propellants, including paraffin (common candlewax) and beeswax (commonly used in beeswax candles) show promise as high-performing hybrid rocket propellants for chemical propulsion systems. Inherent safety and simplicity advantages and low cost (less than $4/kg) make waxes well-suited for widespread adoption for launch and in-space […]

100 Percent Algae Powered Computer

algae powered computer biofuel electricity components

This computer ran on algae power alone for 6 months Scientists have succeeded in powering a microprocessor for months thanks to the energy generated by algae. This kind of progress, still at the margins, is very encouraging for a world dependent on polluting energies. What if tomorrow, small everyday connected objects were powered by plants? […]

Island Couple Turns Plastic Trash Into Fuel

plastic trash into energy

This couple has figured out how to turn plastic trash into fuel. This seems like a gasification method used with plastic to heat them and draw flammable gasses off of them, then cool those gasses into a flammable liquid which can be used to power engines. Very clever.

Here are TEN energy sources you can expect to see powering our future.

  From Biofuel and Algae to Flying Wind Turbines and Nuclear Waste, learn about some really brilliant methods for powering our vehicles our homes, our cities and even our planet. Which one is your favorite? Would you like to see one of these powering your city? #biofuels #hydrogen #nucleasrfusion #windfarms #solar #nuclearwaste #geothermal #algae #tidalpower […]
