Actually, to some extent they are engaging in the general principle you are mentioning. I did not realize this, but I was recently speaking with a company that does a lot of work with gas compressors. One of their main clients is landfills. Rather than just burning off and wasting the methane produced as a byproduct of decomposition, they are cover the landfills to trap the gas and then remove it for energy.
I see a lot of discussion about storage issues with wind and solar. We see new technologies that can turn municipal waste into fuel. We don't have enough waste to solve all our needs but if we can use 20-30% of it to reduce oil imports and green house gases we gain a two fer.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
