You could invest in good old wind or solar power, or in the case of one Spanish town , you could just ask your citizens to flush their toilets. That’s the concept behind Chiclana de la Frontera’s sewage treatment plant, which is the world’s first plant that will be used to convert sewage into renewable biofuel.

Comments Off on Honda Develops New Robot to Survey Fukushima Nuclear Plant

Late last year, electronics company Hitachi unveiled a large, 2.5-ton robot to help clean up the  Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant that was damaged in the 2011 Japanese tsunami. Now Honda has developed a robot of its own to aid in the cleanup effort. Using technologies which were originally developed for the ASIMO humanoid robot , Honda and the  National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) jointly developed a new high-access survey robot to collect data on the first floor of the damaged reactor.

Comments Off on South Korean Researchers Create Clean Biodiesel from Sewage Sludge

Biodiesel is an excellent source of fuel: not only does it come from renewable sources , but it also burns cleaner, producing less pollution than fossil fuels . But it can be expensive to produce. That is set to change, however, as South Korean researchers recently developed a new way to source fuel from sewage sludge at a fraction of the cost of regular sources.

An engineer from the University of Miami has received $100,000 from NASA for his fuel-efficient supersonic aircraft. Working with a team from Florida State University, Ge-Chen Zha has designed a bi-directional flying wing (SBiDir-FW) that not only looks like a ninja’s morning star, but can travel at supersonic speeds without the sonic boom generated by conventional aircraft when they break the sound barrier. This remarkable jet could potentially travel from New York to Tokyo in four hours. Read the rest of NASA Provides $100,000 Funding For Super-Sonic, Fuel-Efficient Ninja-Star Jet!
