First of all, let’s talk about the environment. I’m sure you all know about greenhouse gases and global warming, so I won’t talk much about that, but you may not know that road vehicles produce 10% of all man-made greenhouse gas emissions. This does include vehicles other than cars like trucks, but Tesla just came out with an electric truck which is faster and can carry more weight than any petrol/diesel truck. Greenhouses gases carbon-dioxide and methane have hit their highest levels in the past 420,000 years, and the extent of arctic sea ice has declined about 10% in the last 30 years. This is all because of global warming, and if we start switching to electric cars, we could make a big difference and maybe, just maybe the effects of global warming will decrease.
“It’s carbon footprint is massive – try 241.85 tons of CO2.” Now let’s move on to solar power. For someone to build a fully functional nuclear power plant it would cost only a couple million dollars. According to The Union of Concerned scientists’ website it costs, “between $2 billion and $4 billion per unit.” When looking for how much it costs to make a solar panel we see that it’s significantly smaller than building than a nuclear power plant. According to Solar Power Authority’s website, each panel fully installed costs about, “A 5 kW system would cost around $25,000-$35,000”. But we then have to take into account the amount of energy produced by each one in a year.
These methods are both economical and effective in helping reduce nuclear waste and it also adds in energy production thus creating an economical front for the country. In total countries such as the UK, Russia and Belgium are producing more than 1000 tons annually and they have been running the plants for the last 3 decades. However, once the waste has been reprocessed it cannot be recycled again. Thus now it has to be disposed and a good system of nuclear waste management is need for the USA. Countries such as Japan and Russia have been taking this reprocessed nuclear waste and used it as fresh fuel for other industrial
Electric motors give instant torque, creating strong and smooth acceleration and are much more efficient than IC engines. Electric cars has established its place in the automobile markets of many countries across the globe. China saw 54000 electric cars registered in 2014, a growth of 120%, The US grew 69% to hit 290,000 total electric cars, Japan grew 45% to hit 110,000 electric cars and the overall global electric car market saw a growth of 76%. However, these big numbers figure only as a small fraction in the global automobile
Greenhouses gases carbon-dioxide and methane have hit their highest levels in the past 420,000 years, and the extent of arctic sea ice has declined about 10% in the last 30 years. This is all because of global warming, and if we start switching to electric cars, we could make a big difference and maybe, just maybe the effects of global warming will decrease. If they don’t, sea-levels could rise and flood certain areas of the world. Secondly, electric cars, ironically, use less energy than gas cars to move
According to Sydney-based Lynas Corp (2010), “the price of neodymium oxide used in magnets in BlackBerrys has surged more than fourfold to $88.5 a kilogram from $19.12 in 2010 because of rising demand and reduced supply from China”. This is also expected to happen in LCD monitor market, as well as other products that are manufactured using rare earths.
Hexagonal crystals are commonly found in nature. With the advent of nanotechnology, nano-engineered Zinc oxide is commercially used in various cosmetic products because it has good transparency and refractive index properties. Nano formulated zinc oxide is estimated to have a worldwide production of 550 tons per year, and a substantial percentage is found in cosmetics comprising about 70% primarily because of its higher solubility in comparison with its bulk version (Hillegass J.M
Nowaday, the energy made from nuclear power plants used for various purposes. The production of electric energy continues. Nuclear power plants generate electricity for nearly 90 percent of their annual time. It reduces price volatility in other fuels such as gasoline. Many countries that use nuclear power plants mostly use fission technologies.
Where Cooper Tire & Rubber had only spent $44.6 million dollars in 2011 on R&D. Cooper Tire & Rubber Company had unbelievable advancements in computer engineering and design compared to other companies. It was able to help them collect data more efficiently, design new stellar products more efficiently, and cut the cost for the equipment they
For example, factories provide us with stuff we need on daily basis from household items to medicines and many more. There are thousands of factories around the world which uses renewable energy, such as solar power, wind power or hydro electric power, which produce less pollution compared to traditional technologies of the 20th century. The new hybrid vehicles which produces less Co2 compared to cars produced 10 years ago is another example of how we can rely on technology while minimizing its harm to our environment. In many developed nations, institutions are in place which monitors Co2 emission. In the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency makes sure that factories install machines which limit their carbon print, cars are required to follow their policy on carbon emission, while this agency has done its job quite efficiently, some industries may not be in full agreement with them.
