Greening the desert of Sahara

Over times, when lager part of the desert again will be green.
Will it accelerate to change the climate and also bring in more water from the Mediterranean sea together, from the North Atlantic Ocean.


Sahara Areal count 9.2 million km2, and the amount of yearly raining is limited to only 100 - 150 mm per year, dependable of actual locations. It do not come stable over the year, but is concentrate to some short rain period’s.

The effect of delivering great amount of freshwater to this array will not only be limited to the new farmland array, but give living conditions for plant and animal in at least twice as great array.

Hydro Powerplant in Norway Posted on Tue, December 06, 2016 16:45:15

Hydro
power-plant

Hydropower
is an environmental friendly and renewable energy source. 99% of all
power production in Norway comes from hydropower.

On a global basis
1/6 of the power produced comes from hydropower.

Statkraft
has more than a 100 years experience with hydropower, and is the
largest producer of electricity from hydro power in Europe. The
majority of the Statkraft Group’s energy production is generated
through hydropower.

Production
takes place in 378 hydropower plants – 273 in Norway, 55
in Sweden, 10 in Germany, three in the United Kingdom, and 32
outside Europea. Statkraft is involved in other hydropower projects
in the Nordic region and Southeast Europe. We are developing new
production capacity in selected countries in South America and Asia.

Hydropower is
renewable, clean, reliable, flexible and produces cheap energy for
generation after generation.

With
additional 200 meter fall in the water stream, from freshwater their
ells went out in the ocean.

Will it be possibly to raise the nations
production of renewable energy between 10 – 15 %, dependable of
investment.

When
the freshwater going from the turbine, it will be physical possibly
to at least pipeline around 1.000 m3/sec to a project like
Greening the Desert.



How to save water in food-production

Aquaponics Posted on Tue, December 06, 2016 15:50:55

Basics
of Aquaponics

In
an aquaponics system, one of the components is a hydroponic bed
wherein crops are grown with the use of nutrient enriched solution.
The other component is a tank or aquarium wherein fish are grown.

These two systems coexist and depend on each other for growth. As the
fish grow, the tank becomes filled with excreta and other waste
matter. This water needs to be changed frequently so that the fish
can survive and flourish in clean water. In a conventional
aquaculture setting, the dirty water is generally disposed of, which
is a great waste of a precious natural resource and also the fish
excrement, which is an invaluable plant nutrient.

An
aquaponics system uses the waste matter from the fish tank, by having
it treated with natural bacteria that convert the fish waste to
nutrients that are usable by plants. In the hydroponic section, the
plants use the nutrients in the water as they grow. Over time, this
water must be replaced with new nutrient-rich water, so that the
plant growth can be continued at a normal pace. This is where the
nutrient-rich water from the fish tank comes in. After being treated
with bacteria, this water is passed on to the hydroponic section,
where it replaces the water that is depleted of nutrients.

The
nutrient-free water from the hydroponics section is not usable by the
plants, but it is safe for the fish because it is free of waste
matter and other nutrients that become toxic to the fish. This water
is sent to the fish tank, where it stays until it becomes riddled
with fish waste again. The same process is then repeated, wherein the
fish waste is converted to plant nutrients and supplied to the plants
and the tank water is replaced by waste water from the hydroponic
area.

Aquaponics
has several advantages over independent hydroponics and aquaculture
systemsIt provides a harvest of crop as well as fish, all without
the need for soil. There is no waste involved because of the
continuous recycling that goes on. Aquaponics systems function on
less water as well, because additional water is only required when
sizable amounts of moisture are lost to evaporation.
