Investigating factors which are affecting energy consumptions in dwellings and improving the performance of building to achieve target of CO2 reduction, with application of various alternatives and feasible technologies. Objectives: To identify the factors of energy consumption within the dwellings. Identifying different alternatives such as shape, material and technology of energy storage and to reduce the consumption of energy. To fit in the concept of "global warming"; into the...
Our environment, which is endowed by nature, needs to be protected from ever increasing chemical pollution associated with contemporary lifestyles and emerging technologies. India, 2nd largest producer of pesticides and ranked 12th in pharmaceutical production, is fast emerging as top 5 player in selected petrochemicals. The challenge for the institution and industries is to come together and pursue development in the field of greener chemistry by reducing or eliminating the use and generation...
Global warming has taken the centre stage today and every conscious technocrat, scientist and literates are worrying how to save the earth from devastation. World over the think tanks are working out to innovate green technology in different elements / factors leading to economic development. Steel being a area / or elements in economic development has become a key element. Thus steel is a key element of any domestic emissions reduction scenario, because in the steel industry (including iron...
Improved water and sanitation environment in terms of availability of hygienic sanitation facilities and provision of quality and affordable water is essential and also a basic necessity of every human society. Improved water and sanitation environment is therefore a prerequisite for improved health and nutrition, since both are linked directly and indirectly. Various studies conducted in Ghana show that the general sanitation situation is not the best. Other studies indicate that certain parts...
The Canada has witnessed extraordinary advances in science over the last few decades. Biotechnology - one such area of growth - is a term covering a broad range of scientific activities used in many sectors, such as food, health and agriculture. It involves the use of living organisms or parts of living organisms to provide new methods of production and the making of new product, because Canada is an industrial country with a highly developed science and technology sector. Almost 1.88% of...
Abstract. The purpose of this experiment was to identify the unknown compound. The tests that were done to determine the identity of the compound include qualitative solubility tests, quantitative solubility tests, measuring solution conductivity, anion and cation test, flame test, and formation of precipitate. It was found that the compound had no smell, was soluble in water, and not soluble in toluene and acetone. The ions dissociated in the water, creating conductivity. When the ammonia test...
The Sustainable Communities Project helps and support community groups on all aspects of environmental law and in particular on how to effectively participate in environmental decision making; by organising and running workshops, seminars, surgeries and other events in their region. We provide information and publications for individuals and groups, raises awareness about environmental rights and justice and inform people about ELF and our services. more... The skills and expertise of ELF and...
the focus of projects and studies concerning the improvement and upgrading of these informal settlements was on a local scale (within the settlement) and neglected the improvement in relation to the planned areas around and the whole city, especially when they become a strategic site in the city and get an unreasonable increase in their significance. This wider perspective which supporting informal settlement development on the spatial fabric of the city as a whole is important for cities...
Bioplastics also called organic plastics are a form of plastics produced from renewable biomass sources, such as vegetable oil, corn starch, pea starch or microbiota rather than fossil-fuel plastics which are derived from petroleum. They are polymers which are also obtained from plants genetically engineered to produce them. [1] Some, but not all, bioplastics are designed to biodegrade. Bioplastics are made in order to solve the problems caused by plastics which are non-biodegardable....
