Dealing with waste from renewable energy

Renewable Energy No Comments »

As the U.S. attempts to shift away from fossil fuels, renewable energy resources bring waste problems of their own. Recycling or disposing of wind turbine blades and solar panels can be tricky, and many often just end up in land fills. Ben Tracy reports.

Biomass: How clean is energy from waste and plants really?

Alternative Energy No Comments »

Clean energy from re-growing resources and waste. Biomass sounds like a perfect alternative power source. Globally, at least 5% of energy come from biomass. But what does it mean if we use organic matter for fuel or electricity?

Reporter: Nicole Ris
Editor: David Jacobi
Supervising Editor: Kiyo Dörer & Joanna Gottschalk

We’re destroying our environment at an alarming rate. But it doesn’t need to be this way. Our new channel Planet A explores the shift towards an eco-friendly world — and challenges our ideas about what dealing with climate change means. We look at the big and the small: What we can do and how the system needs to change. Every Friday we’ll take a truly global look at how to get us out of this mess.

“Wood is one of the few energy sources that emits more carbon than coal.” Burning biomass allowed civilization to evolve and advance in remarkable ways, but smoke that comes as a byproduct is carbon-heavy and kills around 2 million people per year.

What is Biomass? A Renewable Energy Source that Puts Organic Waste to Use

What is Biomass? A Renewable Energy Source that Puts Organic Waste to Use

Biomass explained: Learn how forest and agriculture “leftovers” are used to create renewable energy. Most US biomass power producers use byproducts as fuel for electricity – materials like rice hulls or tree tops and limbs that can’t be made into another product. Not only is biomass a carbon neutral form of electricity, it also reduces the abundant organic waste created from other industries.

We Solved Nuclear Waste Decades Ago

Nuclear waste is not glowing barrels or green goo. And nuclear waste storage is not at the bottom of some river. This is the reality of a situation we actually solved decades ago.

American Waste Control is Oklahoma's Only Collection, Recycle, Waste-to-Energy Disposal Company

At American Waste Control, we have a passion for educating the next generation on the importance of recycling to keep our city looking beautiful. We truly believe that helping the environment and improving the lives of our neighbors starts with the simple things—like recycling and ends with turning on our neighbors lights. We call it the big picture.

So, what does the big picture look like? This amazing video helps explain the entire process visually and dramatically.
Our Mr. Murph program offers over 600 different sites in Green Country for you to drop off accepted recyclables. From there, these items are taken to our Tulsa Recycle and Transfer campus, where they are sorted utilizing our state-of-the-art MRF facility. The location is also home to the Tulsa Indoor Dump, a convenient and easy way to dispose of items without driving all the way to a landfill.

Items that cannot be recycled are sorted and hauled to our stunning American Environmental Landfill location in Sand Springs, Oklahoma. This beautiful stretch of rolling hills is home to the American Therapeutic Riding Center for disabled children, a large herd of Texas Longhorn cattle, honeybee hives, Monarch butterflies, and so much more. It is also the only waste-to-energy center in the state, providing thousands of families the energy they need to operate their homes by capturing methane gasses emitted from waste.

From tossing a soda can or plastic water bottle in a Mr. Murph collection container to providing lights for Green Country residents, the big picture is about more than just American Waste Control’s effort to make Tulsa more beautiful by reducing waste. It is part of ensuring everyone in the community enjoys a better tomorrow.

Why waste water? These solar panels recycle greywater, produce energy

Alternative Energy No Comments »

For a longer version of the story, check out this video:

With support from the National Science Foundation, a multidisciplinary team is engineering solar panel technology that makes greywater reusable while creating thermal energy in the process. What is now wastewater would be used at least twice, cutting demand, and the free solar energy can be captured as well.

The research in this episode was supported by NSF award #1038279, EFRI-SEED: Solar Optics-based Active Pasteurization (SOAP) for Greywater Reuse and Integrated Thermal (GRIT) Building Control. EFRI-SEED is short for Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation-Science and Energy in Environmental Design.

Scientists hope to recycle radioactive waste into "ultra-long life" power

Scientists hope to recycle radioactive waste into "ultra-long life" power

Subscribe to our channel!

Nuclear waste from power plants could be recycled to create ‘ultra-long-life’ power sources, according to a team of researchers from the University the Bristol.

Scientists are developing diamond batteries which use energy from radioactive materials in the hope of transforming waste from decommissioned power stations across the UK. They were seen at work in Bristol on Wednesday.

“What we’ll be looking for is higher power devices which will incorporate much bigger diamond material or stacks of materials,” Scott said.

He explained: “[They] take ten to 15 years to get towards devices we could use in satellites, or spacecrafts, and perhaps one day, long in the future, maybe even mobile phones.”

Potential applications range from powering hearing aids and pacemakers to the automotive sector. “We might have four diamond batteries in your car, not to power it along the road but to tell the car when the pressure in the tires is getting low,” Scott added.
