In Sweden built the first wind generator out of wood

In Sweden launched the first wooden wind turbine which is made of environmentally friendly materials and provides performance comparable with conventional “wind turbines”. Its creators hope that the new installation will be the harbinger of cheaper and environmentally friendly solutions for renewable energy sources in countries with cold climate.

Following in the footsteps of their German colleagues (in Germany the wind generator out of wood was launched earlier), the Swedish engineering company Modvion tried to save his creation from the typical shortcomings of wind generators.

We are talking primarily about solid metal bases that have working sections: they are expensive to manufacture and difficult to transport to the installation site.

In contrast, a wind turbine company Modvion has a modular design, it is made of cheaper and more environmentally friendly materials, which does not require a large amount of energy. Wind generators have a height of 120 m. Due to the modular design, they can be transported stacked sections on ordinary roads.

If Modvion goes well, in 2022, will begin serial production of these wooden wind turbines. The first customers will be companies Varberg Energi and Rabbalshede Kraf, which will be manufactured towers with a height of 110 and 150 m, respectively.

Physicists have learned to turn plastic bottles in supercapacitors

Scientists from the University of California, riverside have developed a technology to produce components for supercapacitors from regular waste. We are talking about polyethylene terephthalate or PET, which is made most of plastic bottles. This material is from an economic point of view is significantly superior to high-tech raw materials, like graphene or carbon nanotubes. […]

Looks like a screwdriver of the XXI century

Recently Techcult wrote about the drill of the XXI century with a touchscreen and lasers. But the screwdriver is traditionally considered to be more simple, reliable and very straightforward tool. What similar high-tech screwdriver advanced Italian production? And it is similar to the Kinetic device Driver. Kinetic Driver designed by the Italian designer Giacomo Di […]

Our Solar system is most similar to space croissant

The sun emits powerful electromagnetic winds that envelop the planet in our solar system like a giant bubble. This magnetic bubble is called the heliosphere and protects the planet from dangerous space radiation. Scientists have long believed that the heliosphere is in the form of a comet – with a distinct nose and long flowing […]

Some homemade masks turned out to be more dangerous than no

Despite the fact that the industry has recovered from the shock of the first days of the pandemic COVID-19 and now produces enough facial masks of different types, most people in the world due to various reasons use homemade versions. Everyone understands that they are less effective than professional medical model, but the question is: […]
