We all wonder a bit or sometimes probably a lot about the future of our planet. Whenever it is possible, we try to make the best decision when it comes to the protection of our environment. Don’t we?
There was a time when humanity was extremely thrilled during the founding of the steam trains. Gradually, the electric train was invented to negate the harmful effects of its predecessor. Likewise, we can think of a lot of technological advancements and innovations that have helped protect the earth.
Today, the health of the planet is devastated. Struggling to breathe and survive every single day. And as humans, we are taking a lot from the planet and giving only a bit back to support its bones. The extreme climate change, the ruination of coral reefs, water pollution, air pollution, depletion of the ozone layer, and a lot more are massively choking the health of the earth.
Below is a list of a few advanced technologies that are promising to preserve the environment for a better planet.
Plastic Reducing Technology
You go for a refreshing swim in the river and some plastic bottles float around you. Not a pleasant experience, right? Inventors around the world are developing technologies to eradicate plastic pollution.
Catalytic Hydrothermal Reactor is new technology and the world’s first, new and improved recycling process that uses water temperature and pressure to break down plastic back into its original form. It is then used to create environmental-friendly materials.
Air-Quality Monitoring Devices
Apart from environmental benefits, air-quality monitoring devices can also be cost-efficient. The current devices do not eliminate the existing air pollution. However, it is helpful to significantly control any further depletion of air.
These devices detect odorful and toxic gases in the air and send real-time information to multiple channels their websites, apps, alerts, and more.
Sustainable and natural energy are in abundance, and they can be collected and consumed through different mediums. Wind, sunlight, water, and a few other energy sources are being used as a replacement for fuel or gas. With the further adaptation of wind turbines, solar panels, and hydropower plants water, humanity can preserve the planet for the current and future generations.
With a motive of low or zero-carbon solutions, engineers are formulating technologies to optimize all the natural sources of energy. Many developmental projects are delayed due to supply-chain disruption.
Research studies show that electric vehicles produce fewer air pollutants compared to diesel and petrol vehicles. Policymakers have set up a target to run only electric vehicles on the roads of South and Central California by 2032. According to research, the U.S requires approximately 10 million electric vehicles on the road by 2025. This would tremendously avoid the worsening of global warming.
As citizens, we all can do our part to protect our environment. Being a wise consumer, by being mindful of the products we use, and surpassing our knowledge to others can make a mark. Ask yourself these questions:
- Do I try to reduce daily trash?
- Do you own an electric vehicle? Or are you planning to buy an electric vehicle?
- Do you try to recycle?
- Do you turn off the lights when they are not in use?
- What more do you do for your planet?
