Think, question, get inspired – Towards clean energy

The Earth can’t handle our current way of producing energy. At the University of Turku, we take part in extensive EU collaborations in which we plan technology projects to combine different research fields. The goal is to replace fossil-based fuel and chemical production with new, efficient, and clean methods that are based on storage solar […]

Why Don’t We Have Functional Biofuel Yet?

Over the last several decades, we’ve poured billions of dollars into biofuel research…so why can’t you fill up with it at the gas station yet? Where are the biofuels?! After all, the gas you put in your car is essentially an ancient biofuel: it used to be organic matter—mostly algae, actually—that over millions of years […]

Renewable energy doesn’t always mean what you think

When you think of renewable energy, what comes to mind? Wind, solar. Wind power Wind energy, solar energy Solar panels, wind farms How about hydroelectric? Hydroelectric? Yeah. I would say yes. Burning wood? No? I think technically it’s a renewable energy. Burning trash? No? I feel like it’s a trick Hmm Depending on the state, […]

Turning Animal Waste in Energy in Viet Nam

Its mid-morning in Sóc Sơn District, an hour’s drive north of Hanoi. A team of technicians is setting up a new system for a family to cook their food and heat water. It uses a special fuel made from animal waste known as biogas. This is just one of tens of thousands of biogas units […]

The Future of Alternative Energy

– [Narrator] What do algae, viruses and seawater all have in common? They could all put fossil fuels out of business. 2010. The United States goes through about 19 million barrels of oil per day. And now we’d all like to think that coal and oil are gonna last forever, but we have to face […]

How Algae Could Change The Fossil Fuel Industry

DAVE HAZLEBECK: So this is the dried algae product. After we dry it, we grind it up into powder, and then we extract the oil out of it. That oil is then refined into diesel fuel or jet fuel. The fuel that we’re producing is exactly the same, in terms of performance as gasoline, or […]

Local scientists develop method to create renewable energy using coffee grounds

a group of local scientists has recently developed a method to convert coffee grounds into biofuel that means South Korea could reuse nearly a hundred and fifty thousand tons of waste that gets thrown out every year which was Oldman has more South Korea imported 143 thousand tons of coffee last year that annual figure […]

How Hydroelectricity works?

{Intro Music} Green or Renewable energy is generated from Natural sources Such as wind, water, sunlight, rain and geothermal heat. One of them is hydroelectricity which uses water as a source and is generated in Hydro-power plants today Hydroelectricity produces approximately 24 percent of the world’s electrical energy. In this video we will learn how […]

The Future of Airplanes

These are the technological developments that will allow us to move ourselves and our cargo cheaper, greener, and faster, through the air, going forward. This is the future of flight. With the first all-electric twin-engine, self-powered aircraft successfully crossing the English Channel this month, and the ongoing effort of the Solar Impulse team to become […]
