Graphene and green light for a resource-based economy
Deciphering the atomic-molecular structure of substances laid the foundation for modern technologies. The 21st century will be the time of atomic design of various materials with desired properties. The start of a full-scale nanotechnology revolution is only held back by the cost-effective way of producing nanomaterials.
The urgent need for economic, environmental and social transformations in our society pushes us to look for ways to transition to a resource-based economy. Today, a group of researchers and developers of convergent sciences and nanotechnology are convinced that we have a solution to both of these challenges. This post will focus on:
- What opportunities for the purification of the environment and the development of human civilization opens up to us a new branch of scientific knowledge - convergent sciences and nature-like technologies. - What will be the management of resources in the global resource-based economy of the future and how the fusion of nuclear engineering and socio-humanitarian technologies cancels the planned obsolescence of goods. - How to improve the quality and life expectancy of everyone and how to feed and provide the highest standard of living for a population of more than 50 billion people without any cost and harm to the ecology of the planet. - When it came: a breakthrough into a future in which cognitive evolution is inevitable and the achievement of a society of abundance, without money, war, violence, age and waste. - What was done by a group of inventors from different countries numbering less than 100 people - researchers and developers of nature-like technologies in order to get to the future today. And what do they intend to do more for the sake of the planet and all its inhabitants. - What can each of us do to build an environmentally friendly and more humane civilization, to improve the quality of life of people and to solve the most important problems of our time, such as the greening of activities and a change in the technical and economic structure.
It will be assembled from the surrounding space and used in stand-alone gadgets and devices WITHOUT NEEDING CHARGING or EXTERNAL POWER SUPPLY. Only environmentally friendly and nature-like technologies.
The idea of harnessing ambient energy in the form of light, vibration, heat, radio waves, etc. is becoming more popular and attractive. As we said earlier: "Energy is everywhere and it is unlimited. Our task is only to transform it and use it for our needs."
In this article, we will take a little introduction to quantum energy and talk about Triboelectric Nanogenerators (TENG). Their varieties have been multiplying since 2014. The effectiveness of these devices is still not very high, and the safety of some of them still leaves questions. However, these works will demonstrate to the researcher the results achieved and allow them to see prospects.
In this article, we will look at 4 options for nanogenerators that may become ubiquitous in the coming years.
COLLECTIVE THINKING AND IMPLEMENTATION EXPERIENCE RESOURCE-ORIENTED ECONOMY IN SIMPLE ORGANISMS. Agriculture requires a lot of work, but it provides enormous benefits that are obvious not only to people. Ants, termites, bark beetles and even sea snails cultivate mushrooms, and swallow fish weed plots with their favorite algae. However, the agronomic activity of the public amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum was a complete surprise for scientists. The cellular slime mold spends most of its life in the form of single amoebas that live on the soil surface and in the forest floor, feeding on bacteria and multiplying by division. But if food dries up, tens of thousands of amoebas gather in a multicellular aggregate called pseudoplasmodium. Thus increasing the chances of survival and prosperity of the entire species.
