The ozone layer located high in the stratosphere protects us from the sun’s harmful high frequency UV rays. This layer is getting thinner due mostly to anthropogenic activities along with the production of ionized air, prompting an examination into the relationship between ionized air and ozone.
The future of energy lies in renewable sources. What do you know about solar, wind, hydropower and biofuels? Test your knowledge and learn more about the energy sources of the future.
Today a lot of pressure is being applied to upgrade our energy production systems to renewable energy formats. Holding this back is the cost of implementing these systems too quickly. Here you’ll find a collection that will aid you in understanding which of these technologies is most promising.
A material that is superconductive can store electrical energy without any losses. This can help power stations to store energy effortlessly during hours when the demand is not at a peak, and distribute the stored energy whenever it is needed. Superconductivity can reduce transmission losses to zero
34 Nobel laureates wrote a letter to President Obama regarding energy legislation in 2009-10. This article talks about the bill passed by the government, its key points, and the current status of the bill.
Liquid nitrogen becomes dangerous if handling and storage are not performed properly. We have to follow some special procedures for this purpose.
Carbon is one of the most plenteous elements found on earth and is essential for all life. The carbon cycle consists of biogeochemical progressions in which the carbon is subjected to chemical reactions. These change its structure as it moves through the various carbon reservoirs on our planet.
Today we have various lighting options at our disposal, but the need of the hour is choosing the best, most efficient, and most cost-effective medium of lighting. Screw-in LEDs are poised to replace compact fluorescents (CFLs), but is now the time to make the move?
Flue liners act as protecting covers of the chimney masonry and internal structure of chimney. They also help in regulating the emission of gases from the chimney. Why install a chimney flue liner and what are its different benefits? This is what we are going to discuss in this article.
A recent study suggests that energy quality has an effect on economic depressions and that it could even be a root cause of recessions. This leads to the question of what ARE the quantifiable measures for energy quality.
