  • Solar-Driven H2O2 Generation From H2O and O2 Using Earth-Abundant Mixed-Metal Oxide@Carbon Nitride Photocatalysts

    Light-driven generation of H2O2 only from water and molecular oxygen could be an ideal pathway for clean production of solar fuels. In this work, a mixed metal oxide/graphitic-C3N4 (MMO@C3N4) composite was synthesized as a dual-functional photocatalyst for both water oxidation and oxygen reduction to generate H2O2. The ...

  • Bright future of solar lighting

    Hybrid solar powered lighting (HSL) isn't anything like solar light based power that changes over daylight into power. Through the utilization of optical strands, HSL catches daylight, diverting it and funneling daylight into a building. At the point when there is practically no daylight, these installations use power with the goal that consistent lighting is accomplished. Gatherer ...

  • How to clean solar lights

    Summer's over and now is the ideal time for a hefty portion of us here in the United States to consider fall cleanup. In the event that you have solar powered lighting, or any scene lights besides, it’s not difficult to harm or even demolish lights once rakes and leaf blowers turn out. Fortunately, there are some simple and fast ...

  • Hotel Melia Las Dunas Cayo Santa Maria, Cuba – case study

    OVERVIEW The Hotel Melia Las Dunas has 925 rooms and suites. Fresh water arrives at the Hotel in a DN 200 steel pipe (8”). Water consumption daily average is 936 m3 (almost 250,000 US Gallons per day) with peak rates up to 190 m3/h (833 gpm). WATER SYSTEM CHALLENGES The domestic hot water for the site is produced by two sets of three boilers ...

  • Relationship between water quality parameters and the survival of indicator microorganisms – Escherichia coli – in a stormwater wetland

    Indicator microorganisms – Escherichia coli – in a stormwater wetland controlling non-point source pollution in the Keum River basin was studied and the relationship between water quality parameters and the survival of E. coli was investigated by Pearson correlation analysis based on 16 sets of data collected on dry days. A significant seasonal variation of the ...

  • Miralite Skylights are engineered for a 30+ year life

    Miralite has been designed, manufactured and patented in the United Kingdom to afford active natural daylight into buildings to allow artificial lighting to be turned off for up to 10.5 hours a day! Unlike passive skylights Miralite uses solar-tracking technology to follow the sun and with the clever use of pre-determined angled mirrors drive natural light into a building. The result is a bright, ...
