What I conceive from Eco-technology is that, it is a constantly evolving group of methods and materials from various techniques for generating energy and non-toxic, clean products. In the course of development, Eco-technology has brought a significant change in everyone's approach.
Energy supply has always been a cause of concern. Implementing small off-grid projects for local needs is a possibility that has me captivated. Minimizing the energy requirement through alternative methods, could create a huge positive impact.
The ecological footprint of automobile sector can be mitigated by improving the materials, design,etc. In lieu with my interest in automobiles, I have been a part of ...view middle of the document...
can be mitigated by improving the materials (fuels, vehicle body), design (aerodynamic considerations, weight reduction) and by other innovations. Introduction of flexible fuel vehicles (FFVs), using P-fuels (renewable liquid fuels), and improving fuel cell cars can revolutionize the industry.
In lieu with my inclination towards this sector, I have been a part of our Institute's Formula Racing team, to build a race-car as per FSAE guidelines. Through my experience in the team, I have realized the amount of creativity and thought that goes into making even the smallest improvement in a product and am willing to do so in future as well.
As a up-coming mechanical engineer I see a lot of scope in the field of eco-technology. I could envision a future wherein I, through my knowledge, technical skills and creativity, develop new technologies and systems that could help people make right decisions and regarding clean and healthy environment and at the same time satisfy their needs.
What I conceive from Eco-technology is that, it is an constantly evolving group of methods and materials, from various techniques for generating energy and Non-Toxic clean products. It includes things varying from increasing the efficiency of an already existing process through improved use of materials and energy sources to controlling the effect of the process on the ecosystem to development of permanent and new process. From time immemorial, man has been using natural resources for meeting his demands. This demands has pushed mankind to exploit nature beyond its capacity to sustain/recoup to an extent that the requirements of the future generations have been grossly neglected. After centuries of apathy towards nature, we realized that we wouldn't be able to sustain in this way for long. We now aim for sustainable development which involves fulfilling human needs and reaping benefits while at the same time causing minimal ecological disruption - thus making eco-technology very important.
In the course of rapid development, eco-technology or in general the awareness towards the environment has brought in a significant change in the approach of any organization. Nowadays, in addition to carrying out consistent policies across operations, from product development to manufacturing, sales, A/S and treatment of end-of-life vehicles, various organizations have also began to respond more swiftly and pro actively to ever stricter environmental regulations. From waste reduction techniques to developing energy-efficient models organizations a focusing on minimizing the ecological footprint of their products and process. The focus on waste reduction, achieving up to 90-95 % recycling rate has brought in changes in various products/organizations. From using different paint removal technique for a car bumper, which happens to be a major plastic component in the car to adopting measures to recycle/dismantle the products after used, various organizations have came forth and...
