[MAREA] Alternative-Energy Yard Equipment – Let’s Kick Some Gas!

That’s the rowdy tagline from the American Green Zone Alliance, a California group working in support of zero-emission landscape maintenance strategies. The group identifies the six worst impacts of gas-powered equipment on lawn crews, communities and the planet. Topping their list? Emissions. A two-stroke gasoline powered leaf blower generates as much tailpipe emissions in one hour as an automobile does […]

Landfill

Landfills are storage sites for waste. They are created to confine the waste to as small an area as possible, and cover the waste so that it does not contaminate the area. When created without strict safety precautions, landfills can disrupt infrastructure such as roads, pollute nearby soil and streams, and contaminate groundwater. The use of a landfill liner can prevent […]

Incineration

Incineration is the disposal of waste through combustion. When waste is burned, trash is converted into ash, gas, and heat. The gas is cleansed of pollutants before it is released into the air, and the remaining solid waste and ash is sent to a landfill. This type of waste disposal does not eliminate the need for landfills, but reduces the […]

Solar Power

Using efficient silicon crystals, solar photovoltaic (PV) panels generate electricity when struck by solar energy in the form of sunlight, which the Earth receives in abundance everyday. As light strikes a crystal, the electrons shared between silicon atoms become excited into a higher energy level, producing an electric current. New “thin film” panels require smaller silicon crystals and can be utilized […]

Alternative Energy

Alternative energy is energy derived from nontraditional sources, such as compressed natural gas, solar, hydroelectric, hydrokinetic, geothermal, wind, and nuclear, that does not rely on the combustion of fossil fuels like coal and oil, and therefore emits little to no greenhouse gases. These alternative energy sources can drastically reduce the amount of carbon dioxide and other green house gases entering […]
