The Southern countries have immense wind, solar, geological or forestry resources; these are recycled in the form of materials, diversified products or used for energy purposes. New technologies now enable their efficient and sustainable use.
“In 2015, investments in renewable energies were higher in developing countries than in developed countries,” highlighted the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). It is expected that the world’s population, which stood at six billion in the year 2000, will increase by 50% to reach nine billion people in 2050, 90% of this increase will be located in Southern countries
This technology can produce in an easy and efficient way, an Ethyl Esther Biodiesel from vegetal oil (oil of Jatropha Curcas seeds or cotton or sunflower), ethanol and a natural catalyst (made from shea nuts shell or other local biomass specifically designed for the purpose of this process).PDF
The production of 2nd and 3rd generation biofuels is still limited. Accordingly, biofuels made from organic waste readily available at negative cost are appealing. The innovative process described below can be integrated into existing AD (Anaerobic Digestion) waste treatment units.PDF
In this invention, the heat generated by the composting of a first batch of waste or organic residue is captured and used to simultaneously dry a second batch of waste, compost or digestate.PDF
This technology is based on a solid-gas thermochemical reaction that stores directly the thermal energy from the sun in order to transform it for cooling purposes. DACSOL system is the first completely autonomous (offgrid) solar-based air conditioning solution on the market.PDF
This innovation consists in a solar beam collector device associated with a parabolic heliostat with a plane mirror sensibly configured “beam-down” The device offers a concentration of the intense solar heat energy nearby and very close to a receptor (hot point of use) which is located underneath. Furthermore for specific thermal needs, an over-concentrating device can be added without any compromise: temperatures over 500 °C and thermal powers of 20 kW can easily be produced and exploited.PDF
