Green Energy Resources: Tap Them to Full Potential

Leo Xavier
In the present day, coal, oil, gas and nuclear energy are the main sources of power in the world. But it is time we took all the renewable “green” energy resources that we see around a bit more seriously. These renewable sources not only have the potential to bring power to some of the poorest regions in the world and boost energy security for nations dependent on imports, but also reduce CO2 emissions that are creating more and more problems around the world by fuelling global warming. Let’s look …

Distressing brain injury patients face walking difficulties even following revival

Technology.am(Jan 20, 2010) — Washington, Jan 20: A latest Canadian research suggests that locomotor deficits can still continue in people who have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) even if they appear to have improved completely.
To come up with their conclusion, a team led by Professor Bradford McFadyen from Université Laval compared mobility in 11 people who had suffered a moderate or severe TBI to 7 subjects of similar age and physical condition with no neurological problems.
It looked like the subjects in the “TBI” group can walk …

Latest method to quantify CO2 over oceans more competently than existing methods

Technology.am (Jan 20, 2010) — Washington: Scientists have developed a latest technique to quantify carbon dioxide (CO2) over the ocean in a much enhanced manner than existing methods.
The system has been developed by researchers at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton (NOCS), working in partnership with colleagues at the Bjerknes Center for Climate Research in Bergen, Norway.
Infrared gas sensors measure carbon dioxide (CO2) based on its typical absorption spectra and is used to assess the air-sea flux of the gas.
So-called closed-path sensors precondition air prior to measurements is made, while open-path …

Lithium can be extracted from geothermal waste

Technology.am (Dec. 14, 2009) — A practice developed by a Californian company, Simbol Mining, will allow the valuable mineral lithium, broadly used in high-density batteries, to be reclaimed from the hot waste water generated by a geothermal power plant in California.
The utilization of lithium has been ever-increasing internationally, and is predicted to triple by 2020 as lithium battery use increases, electric cars become more prevalent, and as more batteries are used to stock up electricity produced by solar and wind sources.
The conventional sources of lithium are soil and brine dried …

‘Monster’ iceberg flaking hundreds of offshoots

Technology.am (Dec. 14, 2009) — An island-sized iceberg is breaking up as it drifts nearer to Australia, producing hundreds of smaller slabs spread over an enormous region of ocean, experts said Monday.
The 140-square-kilometre (54-square-mile) chunk of ice, known as B17B, was seen some 1,700 kilometers (1,054 miles) south-southwest of Australia’s western coast on December 9, prompting a maritime alert for vessels in the region.
However as it has tracked further north and east the iceberg has shrunk to some 115 square kilometers — still alarming at about twice the size of …
