20 Nov 11 WHE – Waste Heat Engine (water lubricated steam powered)

Harry shows off the WHE at the Steam Automobile Club of America meet 2010. Cyclone Power Technologies Waste Heat Engine (WHE, pronounced “we”) recaptures heat from external sources to create steam which powers the engine. The WHE models are designed to run a grid-tied or primary electric power generator while producing ZERO Emissions. The WHE is designed to run on heat as low as 500ºF from many different external sources of “wasted” heat such as: * Commercial or small-scale industrial ovens or furnaces * Landfill and industrial gas flares * Engine exhaust — from vehicles or power generators * Biomass combustion — dry, vegetative waste materials

electricsense.com What Is Cellphone Radiation? Cellphones use wireless technologies that work by emitting radio frequency radiation that are transmitted through the antenna in your phone. When talking on your cellphone, the device and thus its antenna end up right next to your head, letting the radiation from it easily affect your brain. This radio frequency radiation (RF) which is produced by cellphones is the same type of energy that is generated by microwave ovens. What is most concerning about RF from cellphones and similar technologies is that they have never undergone pre-market safety testing or been properly scrutinized since being put in use. Long And Short Term Risks To Children: Scientists are discovering that exposure to radio frequency radiation has subtle effects on the brain and other biological functions. These effects are more prevalent in children because their skulls are less thick allowing for more radiation to reach the brain, they have a nervous system that has not fully developed, and because they are likely to be exposed to a lifetime of RF. Researching Radio Frequency Radiation The cellphone industry has obscured the facts around radio frequency radiation through lobbying and manipulating public opinion through its own biased research. If look past the industry funded studies, it becomes clear that cellphone radiation is dangerous and potentially lethal. It is important to remember that Cell phones have only been used in such high volume for

Miguel Elliott of Living Earth Structures demonstrates how to make adobe bricks using Earth right from your property. The adobe Bricks are used to make cob pizza ovens, cob benches, adobe saunas, and earthen structures. This natural building process has been used for centuries, and is enjoying a renaissance in the town of Petaluma, California.

19 Oct 11 City Farmer’s Dog Waste Disposal Unit

Dig a hole and use it for the disposal unit or place a plastic bin without a bottom in the hole. Run water in the hole first to make sure there is good subsoil drainage. Add septic powder once a month with a wee bit of water. This bin has worked for one small dog in Vancouver mild winter weather. (www.cityfarmer.info)

Last part of this mega-series, just shows a few shots of various trash and recycling ASLs. You’ll see an EDI RR (#58) doing trash, a quick view of the EDCO RR with recycling, and a bit of Bridgeport footage. The Bridgeport driver wasn’t very cool with the filming, and I don’t even know which material he was collecting for sure (or if he was just doing both to save time)…Anyways, thanks for watching this vid as well as this mega-series!

17 Oct 11 MIT Waste JP5 — Packing

This was sort of like a residential bulk-waste collection, except an industrial version! =]

In this video you get to see the OSGS (one stop garbage shop) gravity lock in action. It also shows an old MJ MNL front-lift collecting the container. This is an awesome invention considering how it automatically unlocks once tipped upside down, then automatically locks again once tipped upright.

12 Oct 11 Infinity Turbine IT10 5-12 kw ORC – Organic Rankine Cycle – Waste Heat to Power Generator

The Infinity Turbine IT10 5-12 kw is a waste heat to power generator, based on the Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) turbine that generates electricity. Used in geothermal, solar and waste heat (industrial waste heat, gas turbine waste heat, diesel engine waste heat). Excess heat from the system output can be used for CHP applications, including desalination, hot water, air conditioning, chiller and process heat. The turbine will operate off low grade industrial waste heat. It will also operate from geothermal, hot springs, oil well producer water or solar collector heat, as long as there is a 125 deg. F (52 deg C) heat differential between the evaporator and condenser. The condenser may operate off of a secondary heat exchanger for CHP hot water or chiller applications. It may also be used in tandem with a CHP, air cooling tower, or ground based geothermal system. The IT10 is a 5-12 kilowatt power producing unit which operates off of waste heat, by vaporizing and pressurizing a environmentally friendly refrigerant which spins a turbine generator. The unit produces 48-300 Volts DC. A standard inverter can convert the VDC to AC power, stand-alone or grid connect, and in 50hz or 60hz. The IT10 is a rack-mounte plug-and-play ORC unit which can be numbered up in series to 100 kw. For larger applications, we have the IT250 and IT500. For Geothermal applications (Enhanced Geothermal System (EGS)), you may utilized oil and gas wells, or abandoned wells that reach depths to get

I’ve been trying really hard to share the joy of camp craft with with my children. We don’t live in the woods like I did as a child, and in some ways I feel like they’ve been cheated. My love of the outdoors was almost unavoidable, but if I’m going to instill this in my kids then I’m going to have to work hard to make sure they get those experiences. One way I’m trying to do that is by creating a camp experience right in our back yard. I’m turning it into a place where I can teach them some basic outdoor/camping skills, and also experiment with repurposing household items to suit the needs of the camp. In this video you’ll see one of my simple coffee can stoves. The small stove, combined with a small cast iron skillet, makes a great way to cook up some camp burgers for my friends and I. It’s just another experiment in simplicity.

07 Oct 11 RE: Waste Collection Challenge

Here’s the fruit of my endless editing labor……it also counts as a FAQ video because I get so many of the same questions about Escondido Disposal. Enjoy–comment/rate please! Sorry I haven’t been up on posting lately, have had a BUSY last couple of weeks. Wanted to edit this at the last minute and get it up before moving on to the footage from Northern CA….
