Comments Off on MIT Students Engage in Recycling Game
Greenbean Recycling – How to Make Recycling Fun?
Would you call recycling fun and challenging? Are you motivated by your positive environmental impact? Probably not. A Boston company called Greenbean Recycle is trying to make the act of recycling a fun, competitive and engaging game for students at MIT. Greenbean’s Reverse Vending Machines is a convenient, ‘smart’ recycling receptacle that rewards you for your actions.
Greenbean recycling improves community recycling with modern technological solutions. We show you instant recycling impact. And in Greenbean challenges teams compete for recycling superiority.
Users can deposit their recycling earnings via PayPal or elect to give to a charitable organization of their choice.
The new company, which won an innovation prize this week from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, has installed a recycling machine on MIT’s campus that is like a ‘recycling center and ATM facility’ rolled into one.
How does the Reverse Vending Machine work?
When students arrive to dump in their recyclables, they punch their phone number on a touch screen. A bar-code reader in the machine counts the number of cans, bottles and the like that the person has dropped off – and then uploads that data to Greenbean’s website. Recyclers can track their progress online, and even engage in competitions with fellow students.

Comments Off on New Photosensitizing Dyes Create More Efficient Solar Panels
Researchers at the University of Buffalo have created a new class of photosensitizing dyes that will give a one-two punch to the efficiency of solar energy systems, making both solar electricity panels and clean-burning hydrogen fuel generators more efficient. The new dye-sensitized solar cells function by turning solar energy directly into an electrical current — they bypass the complex system of conductors needed in most solar panels, making them cheaper to produce.
