48 Goals of Green Technology Source ReductionPatterns of production and consumptionGreen PackagingMinimizing the amount of packagingMinimizing the energy usedUsing reusable packagingUsing recycled and recyclable itemsUsing biodegradable materials
49 Goals of Green Technology ViabilityCenter of economic activityCost savingsNational security issueEfficient and cost effective business operations
50 Green Engine VITAL Aims to reduce Aircraft engine noise Carbon dioxide emissionsMajor PartnersSNECMAAirbus FranceVolvo AeroRolls Royce
51 Green Engine Contra Rotating Turbofan (CRTF) Two fans turning in opposite directionsReduce the fan rotating speed by 30%Same performance as a conventional fanSlower tip speeds, reduces fan noiseHigher bypass ratio, results inlower fuel burnReduced carbon dioxide emissions
52 Future Developments Lilypad Project Futuristic concept Series of floating self-sufficient ocean-going eco-city islands.Support great deal of biodiversity.Collecting pools located in their centers would gather and filter water for use on board.For adventurers and refugees alike as water levels rise around the world.
53 Future Developments Bahrain World Trade Center Three massive wind turbinesAccelerates air moving between towersGenerate even more powerLargest wind-powered design in a massive building
54 Future Developments MagLev Wind Turbine Using magnetism to levitate the bladesTheoretically survive for centuriesPower up to 750,000 homes1 maglev wind turbine equals to standard wind mills
55 Future Developments Solar Tower Surrounded by 600 steel reflectors Sunrays directed at a single pointTurn water into steam.The steam moves through turbines and generates energy.
56 Future Developments Dongtan Eco-City Environmentally, socially, economically and culturally sustainable cityRelies on its own wind and solar energy as well as organic farming strategiesPrototype for large-scale city planningFully eco-friendly mindset.
57 Future Developments Lighthouse Skyscraper 1000-foot-tall office skyscraperDesigned to use about half the water and energy of a typical high-rise buildingSolar energy collection and wind farming techniquesImprove recovery of energy and water within the building.
58 Future Developments Orbiting Solar Arrays Array of solar panels placed into orbit.Beam the solar power back down to a receptorConverted into electricity.No interruption of the flow due to adverse weather conditions or being night.
59 Future Developments Smart Grids Overcome current electrical grid problemsMore efficient and cost-effective distribution and consumption of energyIntegration of alternative energy sourcesPower flows optimizedCarbon dioxide emissions reduced substantially
60 Problems with Going Green DrawbacksProblems with Going GreenInconsistent WeatherNot possible everywhereCost of solar panelsShort lifespan of energy infrastructureHybrid car drawback
