Green Building Material: High-Tech Fiberboard Made from Waste Fibers

There’s a new green building material on the market that is light, strong, and flexible, and can be made into just about any shape, including complex molded shapes, without the need for any glues, harmful chemicals, or toxic ingredients. This material, ECOR, is made using only water, heat, fiber, and pressure, and takes a low-value product (waste fiber) and turns it into a high-value green building material. At its most basic, ECOR, from Noble Environmental, is a corrugated panel that…

Waste to Energy Biofuel Project Aims for Community-Powered Energy

While some cleantech entrepreneurs are looking to further develop solar power, wind power, and marine power to meet some of our future energy needs, others are looking much closer to home with their own renewable energy projects, including in an unlikely spot – the organic wastes produced by communities every single day. The move to a cleaner, more renewable energy future isn’t going to come through a single technology, but rather through a number of different approaches, including increased energy…

An Advent Calendar of Invention, Fabrication, and Repair, from Sugru

When the next hot product to hit the internet starts showing up in all of our social feeds, many of us react by saying, “I wish I’d thought of that,” but some of us begin kicking ourselves, because we thought of that idea, months (years) ago, but never did anything with it. A great idea by itself is virtually worthless, and one that lives only in our brain or our notebook or in an email thread is quite a bit…

Pitch Your Green App Idea to Thousands of Developers at Once

Got a great idea for an eco-app, but don’t know the first thing about developing an app, or where to find a developer? This mobile app developer community could be a great way to get started. Mobile apps are a dime a dozen, it seems, as both free and paid apps abound these days. And while there are many useful apps that do exactly as they promise to, there are also a great number of apps that don’t, which are…

Why Private Cloud Storage Makes Sense for Small Green Businesses: WD My Cloud EX2

As a small business owner or entrepreneur, most of your time is probably spent running or growing the business, and some things, especially if they aren’t immediately obvious or necessary, can easily fall through the cracks. That’s all well and good most of the time, except when it isn’t, in which case that small detail can then turn into a big ordeal. One such case in point is technology, and specifically data and file storage, because on the one hand,…

Local Food Hub Software Offers Comprehensive Custom-Branded Platform

Over the last decade or so, we’ve seen a huge rise in the awareness in consumers of the importance of supporting local farmers and growers, and an accompanying surge of chefs and restaurants getting on board by buying and preparing more locally grown and produced foods, which has been a big factor in the success of many small farms and markets. But that interest in local food, and the market opportunities it opened up, didn’t happen overnight, in large part…

Can You Boost Your Productivity with a Dumb Phone?

The promises of the future never seem to arrive, and the halcyon days of the new technological revolution are always in the future, when our advanced technology will do most of the work for us and leave us with plenty of free time for leisure, family, and fun. The faster and more advanced our gadgets get, the more they can do for us (in theory), but all too often, they actually end up taking more of our time, either through…

New Electric Vehicle “Eco-Routing” Navigation System Cuts Energy Use up to 51%

There are already a lot of navigation tools for driving on the market, ranging from basic add-on GPS units to smartphone-based mapping and navigation tools, but most of them focus on either cutting the driving distance or the driving time, not necessarily energy or fuel consumption, but a new navigation system targeted to electric vehicles could help EV drivers cut their energy use by a significant percentage. Researchers at the University of California Riverside have developed an “eco-routing” navigation system…

NASA & DOE Crowdsource Wave Energy Modeling Tools In Open-WARP Challenge

Along with solar power and wind power, wave energy could be a serious gamechanger in the clean energy landscape, especially when considering that a large portion of the US population lives within 50 miles of the coastline, and could take advantage of this renewable energy. However, while both solar panel and wind turbine technologies have essentially matured, and getting access to reliable and efficient sun and wind power is becoming simpler (and cheaper) every day, marine and hydrokinetic (MHK) power…
