New recycling technology can keep more glass out of landfills

Self-adhesive technology allows clear separation of labels from glass. Avery Dennison has introduced a glass recycling technology that enables the clean separation of self-adhesive labels from glass materials. Their new technology will not only ensure that glass products will still maintain shelf appeal but, more importantly, it will allow more glass items to be recycled, which means less glass will be sent to landfills. More glass that consumers recycle end up in landfills than they might realize. According to information on the Avery Dennison Glass Recycling webpage, “For single-use bottles,…

A new method of transforming engines into hydrogen hybrids emerges

Hydrogen fuel vehicles

Hydrogen is proving itself to be a worthy successor to oil as far as energy goes. However, there is no doubt that the cost of fuel cells is still too high for them to be viable in a commercial market. While researchers continue to find ways to reduce the cost of fuel cells, some are more eager to make the transition to hydrogen than others. H2 Pure Power, an Arizona-based fuel cell manufacturer, has developed a method that transforms traditional combustion engines into hydrogen hybrids. The hybrid engine relies primarily…

Generating green power for Japan

The Tokyo Gas Company and the Panasonic Corporation are joining forces to produce a new model of their “Ene-Farm” home fuel cell. The “Ene-Farm”, whose name is inspired by the concept of generating homemade energy, is a hydrogen powered fuel cell co-generation system. The system pulls hydrogen from the city’s gas supply and causes a reaction with oxygen in the atmosphere to generate heat and electricity. The cell is hailed for its eco-friendliness. All the heat and electricity is produced in the same spot that it is being used so…
