  • Next Generation: Phosphor Coatings

    Reducing the Cost of LED Fixtures with Next Generation Phosphors There are two main methods through which LEDs can produce white light. One method is to use red, green and blue diodes so that their combined output appears white to the human eye. However, the limitation of this approach is that it requires three types of LEDs, and heat dissipation becomes an issue when they are assembled ...

  • Fuel alternatives for heavy equipment

    High fuel prices are leading composters and wood grinders to reevaluate diesel-guzzling heavy equipment, looking to alternatives that are both more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly. This could be as “simple” as filling up existing machines with biodiesel blends, could involve swapping out a diesel model for an electric one, or even go as far as generating electricity on site to power ...

  • Alternative matrices for India's future power demands

    Against the planned capacity addition of 41,110 MW during the 10th Plan, only 21,180 MW could be added. The plan to alter the power mix by enhancing the nuclear power generation capacity of 4120 MW at current levels to 20,000 MW by the next decade seems too ambitious, with only 1% of global uranium reserves. The exercise to source uranium by signing the 123-Agreement with the USA is held up. With ...
