CleanTech Expo Unveils Technologies on TV
Advances in environmental and energy efficiency technologies will be unveiled to members of Congress, the media, and the public at the Capitol Hill CleanTech Expo '09 on July 16 in the Rayburn House Office Building.
According to the Western Business Roundtable, the event will be broadcast by CleanTech TV, www.cleantechtv.us.
The technologies on display will include:
- Carbon sequestering technology that uses aerogels to turn carbon dioxide (CO2) gas into a solid for permanent sequestration;
- The world’s first renewable gasoline, from sunlight and CO2 algae-based fuels that emit approximately two-thirds less CO2 than petroleum-based fuels at scale;
- Weather-driven renewable energy assessment and forecasting for wind, solar, and hydro power projects;
- High efficiency single-phase electric motors that achieve 66 percent energy savings over diesel fueled stationary engines;
- Utility-scale solar thermal power technologies with molten salt energy storage;
- Photo-bioreactor algae growing/harvesting (PBR) machine that produces fuel and food from CO2; and
- Large-scale water treatment systems that can remove hormones and nanoscale impurities.
The day-long event will be open to the public and will feature a wide range of new environmental technologies and applications, according to Jim Sims, president and chief executive officer of the Western Business Roundtable. The Western Business Roundtable is co-hosting the Expo with the NextGen Energy Council.
