  • Passive Refrigerator
    The passive refrigerator is made up of two components; a hole in the ground that is insulated and filled with two liter plastic bottles full of salt water, and an icebox that is also heavily insulated. Connecting the two is a pipe system that transfers the cold energy from the bottles to the refrigerator using a sugar antifreeze solution.
  • Example Patent Submission
    Your team's abstract will show up in a space like this. Make it short and to the point so readers get your main ideas.
  • Intelligent Distribution of Temperature and Lighting control
    Sensors and prisms are utilized in a system to address three problems with home heating: 1. energy wasted warming up unused parts ofthe house, 2. "lights and appliances" left on needlessly, and 3. redistributing direct light where needed.
  • Adaptable Insulation
    Big temperature differences and strong air flow combined with poor insulation result in heat loss and wasted energy in homes. This patent concerns increasing the insulation in the winter and decreasing it in the summer, saving a lot of energy.
  • Chemical Reactions with Greenhouse Gases
    A layer of a certain chemical compound will be painted onto the outside of a house that will react with oxygen and hydrogen or water (rain) to form another chemical compound X. Compound X will then go up into the atmosphere and reacts with carbon dioxide to form a substance that is not harmful to the society, and at the same time, gets rid of carbon dioxide.
  • Algae as a Solution to Global Warming
    Based on GreenFuel's project to use a variety of algae that absorbs green house gases, we intend to research the problems this project faces, give our ideas for solutions to them, and thus sell a presently under-used process. We also intend on applying our research to other fields where it could be applicable.
  • Small scale pnuematic vane motor
    A gas operated motor designed for use on a scale model gas power generation devices. The motor is solely designed for demonstration of the gas motor system, its efficiency is not optimal.
  • Bio-Fuel solution to global warming
    A small green house to grow algae, a bio-mass generator and Vegetable oil fuel technology is combined into a single unit. This off the grid, and carbon neutral source would provide heat, transportation fuel and electricity on a small or large scale.
  • FlexFuel Car
    The FlexFuel Car takes elements of existing technologies and renewable energies, fusing them into a single, seamless vehicle. The engine will be able to run on electricity, hydrogen, biogas, and fossil fuels; this maximizes efficiency of the car according to distance and speed. Most importantly, our design allows consumers to choose the cheapest energy.
  • Pure Carbon Conversion
    The Use of Pure Carbon Conversion fuel cells to convert raw fossil fuels efficiently into electricity, while also creating Hydrogen to be used as a bi-product.
  • Livestock and Methane
    Bacteria that digest food in the rumen of livestock produce the potent greenhouse gas methane as a by-product. Using biotechnology, we can eliminate the methane-making gene and introduce an antibody gene which will make cows more resistant to disease, eliminating the need for dangerously high dosages of antibiotics.
  • The Green Machine
    Global warming is irreversible so the best we can do is limit the amount of pollution in the atmosphere. Our goal is to create a catalytic converter that serves purpose both economically and in terms of emission and efficiency. The system works by combining two catalytic converters in a single housing: an oxidizing unit which converts gaseous pollutants, and a particulate reduction until in which soot particles are trapped and burned off at an exhaust temperature of over 250 degrees Celsius.
  • Solar Thermal Battery
    Solar Thermal Batteries are small-sized rechargeable batteries based on the techonology of thermal batteries. Instead of being activated by the electrolytes, they harness the sun’s energy to generate electricity. As the substitutes for environmentally damaging batteries, they are commonly applicable in our daily life with portable volumes and adjustable voltages.
  • CIGS Solar Cells with Quantum Dots
    A new kind of a solar panel with 40% efficiency, made of thin-film, nonlattice-matched, multi-junction copper indium gallium diselenide cells. The bottom CIGS layer is put on a low-cost flexible plastic substrate through "ink stamping" (cheaper non-vacuum approach), with quantum dots adding additional energy and reducing waste heat energy. Uses a concentrator for added efficiency.
  • "Geo-Green" Homes
    Our team will design product based on algae conversion into biofuel, which will be used to create electricity. This electricity will be used to power homes via a base power plant, much like the present technology in powering homes. The method applied to extracting energy from algae to create Biodiesel.
  • the green machine-part2
    a little funnel chamber,not more than a foot in size,cost efficient,and most importantly, reduction of GHGs...catcons will be here to stay
  • Spring Car
    The spring car is powered by the driver pedaling this creates mehcanical which is stored in the spring. The braking system is connected to a turbine much like power plant which creates an electrical current and recharges the battery when the wheels stop turning.
  • Smart Energy Efficient Windows
    Energy-efficient windows are designed to prevent heat from entering or escaping. This is accomplished with windows that act as thermal insulators. Our window will consist of two multiple-glazed glass sheets with a gas such as argon in between. Argon is a poor heat conductor and helps prevent heat from escaping.
  • boron fuel car
    this car working only on boron and water will result in absolutely no emission at all.18 kg of boron and 40 litres of water is equivalent to 40 litres of conventional fuel.
  • Home-Networking with Broadband Router
    Home networking is the core technology of our business, which enables the formation and operation of the digital home where the customer can turn on and off the lights from a remote location by just clicking a button of his/her cellular phone or PDA. It can reduce significant amount of wasted fossil fuel energy of household devices, and ultimately contributes to addressing climate change.
  • Nanotechnology-modified Catalytic Converters
    Nanotechnology is the science of particles with a size lesser than an eight-hundredth of the thickness of a human hair. Working at such a micro-microscopic level,our Team realized that this technology has great potential to combat global warming through the modification of technology that we use today,without considering the increase in our carbon footprint. Our untitled product captures the efficiency of nanotechnology and the necessity of a catalytic converter into a new dimension. With the number of road vehicles growing exponentially in all parts of the world,our technology becomes a hopeful solution in resolving the enormous carbon footprint of the environmentally conscious citizen.
  • MultiAct Asklepios
    The fishes are breed, later they are passed threw a conductor and there they separate all the meat and bones, the bones and head go to another section and there they are compacted and used as fertilizer, the meat is separated from the Omega 3 (fish oil), the omega 3 passed to a section to be transformed by nano processor into biodiesel and the meat goes to some place like a freezer that can be used as food. Then in this prototype we obtain biodiesel, food and fertilizer. The type of fish used depends on the region where you live, also this same prototype can be applied to algae.
  • Solar Grids System
    An improved solar grid that allows us to rely on solar power, even when the sun isn’t out by combining SES Solar Dish Stirling Technology and molten salt. Store the excess solar-power as heat in the molten salt, which can be converted back into electricity when it is needed, especially when the sun isn’t out.
  • The Integrated Circuit Kalman Based Inertial Navigation System
    Abstract: This project is based on the communication between microcontroller PIC17F877A and PIC18F4431 (The former is used to sample, and the latter is used to execute algorithm).At the same time, this paper proposes the hardware design of Inertial Navigation System as well as the handd9optimized Kalman Filtering of the algorithm.
