Infographic from ReuseThisBag: Waves of Rubbish

October 3rd, 2012 | by Glenn Meyers

I am passionate about saving our delicate planet and I am always looking for information on what can be done. I came across this amazing infographic and I was amazed to learn the destruction that a tsunami can do to the planet months and years later. I thought I would share this information with you


Living Roofs Boost Solar Panel Performance

It also turns out that solar panels can benefit from green roofs. Solar cells tend to perform better and convert more sunlight into electricity under cool conditions. Heat is also generated as a result of solar radiation, which is why high-performing solar panels often have the need for extra cooling. If solar panels are positioned on top of a conventional roof that consists of gravel or bare waterproofing membrane, even more heat is generated


Solar Cell Consists of a Single Molecule

he scientists could demonstrate that such a system can be integrated and selectively addressed in artificial photovoltaic device architectures while retaining their biomolecular functional properties. The proteins represent light-driven, highly efficient single-molecule electron pumps that can act as current generators in nanoscale electric circuits. The interdisciplinary team publishes the results in ┬┤Nature Nanotechnology┬┤ this week
