Striking another blow to the oil and gas industries, an American solar company has developed technology that can produce super-efficient solar power that’s cheaper than fossil fuels. Rayton Solar ’s new solar panel manufacturing technology that uses 50 to 100 times less silicon than other technologies, cutting out large amounts of the most costly component of solar panels. The company says its patent-pending process uses just four microns worth of silicon, leaving no waste – while boosting efficiency to 24 percent. That’s 25 percent higher than industry standard efficiency , according to the company Read the rest of Rayton’s new super-efficient, affordable solar panels could trump fossil fuels Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: efficient , green , photovoltaic , power , rayton , renewable , renewable energy , silicon , solar , Technology , Waste

Comments Off on Awesome Green Gift Wrap Idea: Silk Scarves!

While it makes a fun tradition, gift-wrapping packages with paper and tape is an inherently unsustainable practice – think of all the paper and ribbon that goes into the trash each holiday season for the sake of making presents pretty. Here’s a lovely green gift-wrap idea to greenify your packaging regime: wrap your present in a silk scarf this year! Not only do scarves make beautiful, easy gift wrap that requires no tape or scissors – but the durability and multiple uses of scarves mean that the gift-wrap itself becomes part of the present that can be worn and reused again and again. BOBO wrapping scarves are silk scarves that are designed for the express purpose of wrapping presents. They can mold into a variety of shapes and the cloth material can be re-used over and over again!

Comments Off on Nuclear Batteries Could be Longer Lasting and More Efficient

Batteries are essential items for everyday life , but they are notoriously bad for the environment and hard to dispose of, but researchers think that nuclear batteries could change that. A team of scientists and researchers from the University of Missouri believe they have created a long-lasting and efficient nuclear battery thanks to a new water-based solution. They hope that the new battery would be able to be used in everything from cars to future manned space flight.

Comments Off on FILTER is an Elegant Zero-Waste, Flat-Pack Lamp by Bijl Architecture

Bijl Architecture Studio’s FILTER light is an intelligent flat-pack lamp design developed with the use of advanced modelling techniques. The holistic light fitting is constructed entirely from its own compact flat-pack packaging, creating a product that—even after shipping—leaves zero waste . With a delicate pre-cut tab construction, the FILTER lamp is a simple, elegant and highly versatile lighting solution. The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Click here to view the embedded video. The prototype for the FILTER lamp was created by Bijl Architecture from cardboard and acrylic, though the studio notes that the design is thoroughly adaptable to a wood and metal structure which would enable the pendant lamp to be assembled as a floor-standing light . The simple design comes in the form of a series of pre-cut tabs which are assembled by the user, with the outer packaging to function as the shade of the lamp, which can be positioned to allow the desired amount of light. The architecture studio notes that “[b]y integrating product and packaging, the design filters out of the excesses associated with consumables, creating a quintessentially sustainable product.” + Bijl Architecture The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
