Hempcrete, Made From Hemp, Used To Build Houses

(Huffington Post) Imagine you had a building material that was energy-efficient, non-toxic and resistant to mold, insects and fire. The material may even have a higher R-value, or thermal resistance, than concrete, a claim that is still being investigated. The only problem? The base of the Hempcrete creation is hemp, which comes from the cannabis […]

Green Fuel is Possible with Artificial Algae Ecosystems

(PhysOrg) Algae could become an important source of sustainable biofuel, as production doesn’t compete with food crops for land. But we may need to change the way we grow algae from closed systems to open ponds if it is to be low-carbon and cost-effective. This is because current algae production in closed systems – usually […]

High-Flying Turbine Blimps Could Cut Wind Electricity Costs By 65 Percent

(Gizmodo) Wind blows stronger and more consistently as you rise above ground obstacles like buildings, trees, and hills. This makes for a lucrative green energy source—assuming you can lift generators 1000 feet in the air. This Airborne Wind Turbine could well become the first. Altaeros Energies is currently developing the Airborne Wind Turbine (AWT). It […]
