Sustainable Review releases its top 10 green technology innovations

Hetech has been pioneering renewable technology for a long time. We believe looking after the environment doesn’t have to come at a cost to technological advancements. Electronics are now found in many advanced applications, IoT (internet of things) and AI are helping to offer better and more comprehensive solutions for the future. At Hetech, we believe we can make a difference, reach out to us and have a chat with us about your ideas and how we can assist.

Recently, Sustanble Review has released its top 10 green-tech innovations.

So what are the Top 10 Green Technology Innovations?

We’ve summarised these below for you:

#1: Solar Desalination

A promising solution to water shortages, desertification, and hunger using solar energy to desalinate salt water. Companies like Elemental Water Makers are leading the way in implementing solar desalination projects globally, providing affordable, safe, reliable, and fossil-free water solutions.

#2: Green Architecture

Green architecture minimises environmental impact through efficient design, focusing on resource use, waste reduction, and energy efficiency. Companies like Apple, Google, and Microsoft demonstrate this approach with features such as solar panels, smart systems, and green roofs, showcasing commitment to sustainability.

#3: Vertical Farming and Hydroponics

Vertical farming and hydroponics revolutionise agriculture by producing high-quality food in limited spaces and challenging climates. This sustainable solution reduces transportation needs and supports local food sources like microgreens for nearby restaurants.

#4: Wind Power

Wind power, a key renewable energy source, uses the wind to generate electricity. Technological advancements are increasing its efficiency and scalability, offering immense potential for clean energy production. Offshore wind farms, situated where winds are stronger and steadier, contribute significantly to reducing greenhouse gases and fossil fuel dependence.

#5: Electric Vehicles

Transportation pollution from fossil fuels is a concern, but green cars like electric vehicles (EVs) offer a cleaner solution. EVs produce zero emissions, thanks to advancements in battery technology, making them practical and accessible.

#6: Plant-based Packaging

Plant-based packaging provides a sustainable alternative to plastic, reducing waste and ocean pollution. Avantium, a Dutch company, produces recyclable and degradable plant-based plastic called PEF from bio-based sources. PEF offers significant greenhouse gas reduction potential and is a promising option for eco-friendly packaging in various industries.

#7: Sustainable Phones

Smartphones pose environmental concerns due to CO2 emissions and harmful materials like lead and mercury. Fairphone and Teracube address these issues by designing phones with lower environmental impact and social responsibility.

#8: E-waste Recycling

E-waste, comprising discarded electronics, poses environmental hazards but also holds valuable resources. Advances in recycling methods, like automated dismantling and sorting, are improving safety and efficiency in handling e-waste.

#9: Carbon Capture and Storage Technology

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technology is essential for reducing carbon dioxide emissions from industrial processes and power plants by capturing and storing CO2 underground. Major companies like ExxonMobil, Shell, Equinor, and Occidental are investing in CCS research and projects, recognising its significance in combatting climate change and fostering sustainability.

#10: Nuclear Energy and Fuel Cells

Nuclear energy, though controversial due to waste management and safety concerns, offers a low-carbon energy option with advancements in technology and safety measures. Fuel cells, utilising hydrogen and oxygen to generate electricity with water as the only byproduct, present a promising green technology for clean and efficient energy in diverse applications like transportation and power generation.
