Green Technology Walk

Technology has been defined in various ways. The simplest is the knowledge of using tools and techniques to improve working conditions, organizational management and artistic perspective to increase the efficiency of product, machine or human endeavors. Primitive man is known for clever use of stone to transform it into weapons and shelters. The use of animal skin and bark to cover the trunk was a step towards fabric technology. The knowledge of technology to control the fire has radically changed the situation of the person who learned to add new things to the food menu and learned to stay warm in a cold climate. The wheel has brought us to the present state of global transport. The launch of leg bones into space after a good and heavy meal inspired space adventure. The internet-led spear of information technology has its origins in smoke signals and, more recently, in printing presses. Now we have industrial, educational, information, medical, visual, micro, nano and domestic technology.

Technology is not applied alone by the human species to give impetus to their cause. Animals and birds have also been successful at creating comparable and sometimes better technological marvels than we have. Weaving birds’ nest, signals from dolphins, monkeys cracking coconut shells, ants’ home technology, elephants’ sharp descent technology, birds migrating to places close to their needs and needs, waiting for the weather to form. Kites and other heavy birds are warm before boarding the plane, and crows drop stone pallets on a narrow-necked jug to raise the water level to refresh the memories. Look towards the evening sky. You’ll find ducks flying in an inverted V shape, giving others the advantage of vacuum and streamline movement.

There is a difference in how primates of yesteryear have behaved, how the animals and birds around us use technology and how we use it. The difference is great. Its efforts have always been and continue to be in the direction of improving environmentally compatible living conditions. Our efforts are diversifying in many ways. Some are good, some are bad and some are ugly. Recently, with the start of the industrial revolution, we have added a burden to environmental pollution or developed weapons of mass destruction. Technology used to improve machine efficiency focused its attention on human productivity. We call this productivity. We pretend to use it as an outsourcing. Green technology had no choice but to promote it and take responsibility for the whole situation created by humankind.

Green technology aims for a suitable, fair and sustainable environment by intertwining all known technologies and human participation with environmental science to protect and improve the environment and bring it back to the quality that existed nearly 300 years ago. Green technology can be called an improvement over existing technology, it helps to manage all kinds of pollution in such a way that they are ecologically and economically friendly.

Green technologies are rated according to their carbon footprints. A competitive and successful green technology has a low set of greenhouse gas emissions from people, product, process, event or organization. There are two ways to reach the goal. The first, which can be called green actions, is to recycle waste, reuse it with renewal and other alternatives, reduce resource consumption and protect existing natural resources. The second, which creates green conditions, is to develop technologies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and thus reduce their carbon footprint. The impact of these measures on reducing global warming has been proven.

The first category of green technology is promoting and redefining traditional ways of keeping carbon footprints low. These are recycling and its extension to solid waste treatment, including water and air treatment, sewage treatment.

Recycling best defines the environment with conservation. Used materials that are disposed of as waste are often converted into new products. Composting is an old concept for turning green waste into fertilizer. The conversion of plastic waste into new plastic products is currently the most common. Recycling reduces the consumption of fresh raw materials by using spacers and scraps. Reduces energy wastage required to convert fresh raw material into final products Reduces air pollution due to waste recycling instead of residual incineration. It reduces water pollution as there is less landfill, thus reducing leachate reaching water bodies.

Waste water is treated by chemical, mechanical and biological processes and converted to drinking and other uses. Air is purified in human settlements, both in industries and indoors. Industrial air pollutants such as sulfur oxides recycle Sulfuric acid, particles such as fire ash are converted into cement and brick. Solid waste generation from human habitat is divided into biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste. Biodegradable waste is converted into fertilizer and biofuel. Non-biodegradable waste can also be metal, glass, plastic, etc. as separated. The first three are used as intermediate raw materials and recycled to the production line to obtain useful products. Hazardous waste materials are treated in accordance with non-hazardous assets, and most of them are then recycled. Sewage treatment has gained a cutting-edge technology. It is processed to purify it from parasites, bacteria, fungi, algae and viruses. The treated solid waste is used as fertilizer and the treated wastewater is either used for irrigation or further treated to make it suitable for domestic use.

Green technology, which creates and maintains the green state, has focused its attention primarily on renewable energy sources. Renewable energies such as solar, wind, tidal, nuclear and geothermal have been found to have minimal greenhouse gas emissions and have enormous potential to replace traditional energy providers such as fossil fuels and oil. Second, non-renewable energy sources are major pollutants and major causes of greenhouse gas emissions.

Green products are a category in their own right, as they have the ability to both reduce greenhouse gases and replace highly polluting non-renewable energy sources. Fuel cells are an example of this. It eliminates air pollution from automobiles and replaces hydrocarbon fuel. Plastic cement produced from waste plastic bottles is another example. This product consumes less energy for its preparation than conventional cement made from iron slag, lime and sand. Also, this plastic cement has greater permeability and hence can breathe better. Rainwater can leach from surfaces prepared from it, enriching the water table below.

These days the market is flooded with toxic plastic toys that are extremely harmful to delicate and sensitive babies. These are being replaced by toys made from recycled plastic bottles. The latest innovation in this segment is fabric made from used plastic bottle material. Dress material for Cricket India members is made of this fabric.

Green technology is fast catching up in the computer software segment as well. Now there is software that will alert you to wasting electricity when you’re at home or on the other side of the world.

There is a ridiculous excuse that the transition to green technology requires a lot of research and development and the cost of implementation is too high. It may be suitable for some efforts, such as technology for geothermal energy use. It is even argued that it takes a long time to break. Here people fail to compare this logic to technologies that are in use and then revised to green technology. An example is the steam engine, which switched to the diesel engine and is now almost replaced by electric motors and in the near future electromagnetic induction forces and magnetic forces. A time cycle would show that the invention and commissioning of the coal-fired steam engine took a much longer maturation period than the electric motor or future versions. All these transformations are extremely profit-friendly. The breakeven time was also quite low.

With the advent of nanotechnology, you can expect wonders in the future. Imagine a chip implanted in your brain to replace computers, one of the biggest consumers of electrical energy and generating huge amounts of electronic waste. You have to start imagining charging your spacecraft with universally available solar power, which is costly, highly polluting, and replaces heavy, cryogenic fuel. You can have the pleasure of traveling to a part of the universe several light-years away with defined flying objects.

Green technology is moving towards a future with a future.
