Portable Thermoelectricity Generating Incinerators with Soda fountain Generation

Portable Thermoelectricity Generating Incinerators with Soda fountain Generation

It's an electricity generating incinerator, is pollution free and it also produces soda fountain from the gases produced from incineration.

Long Description

The USA alone produces 254 million tons of trash and only 34.3 % percent of that is recycled. The maximum amount of the trash is dumped in Landfills, of which only a few are left and that too with a life of 5-10 years. Moreover, in the USA, people living below the 50% poverty level are required to pay more than 35% of their annual income for their energy bills on an average. Moreover, on a larger scale According to “ACTION4ENERGY,” a United Nations Development Programme, about 1.3 billion people worldwide live without electricity. There are also 3 billion people living without clean cooking facilities i.e. cooking in open firewood stove, out of which more than 4.3 million people have already died due to the indoor pollution created by it. The target populations are the communities/Individuals dealing with these number of problems. This Project targets and addresses each of these mentioned problems of energy inequality, waste management, energy scarcity, indoor pollution. It aims to create electricity from waste heat generated from incinerating Paper & Organic Waste(POW) in portable thermoelectricity generating incinerator (PTGI) without generating pollution. They can be used for small village/town to produce their own electricity from the POW collected in their town. Also, Dustbins can be designed with the same concept which can help to charge mobile phones/laptops on the go. Moreover, here the exhaust gas can be used ( Carbondioxide which is the main constituent of the exhaust gas) for a Soda fountain.
