Green AT Project[edit]

Hi Brittney

This is Simon (MECH 425), I just have a question regarding to the Green AT project topic that u chose - Water Purification system. I have an idea of natural convected solar water purification system. Basically it heats up the air using piles of aluminum can(painted in black) under the sun and the heated air is then directed(natural convection) to power a water vaporizer (heat exchanger). I just wondering if there is any overlapping with your project.

Solar PV end of life[edit]

Hi Brittney

All very good points and questions -- there is considerable work that has gone into recycling efforts for PV -- and actually my group is just finishing a paper that focuses on setting up policy to encourage manufacturers to collect, disassemble and recycle their modules. Most of the materials in PV modules can be re-used. See this [1] for what we have been up to -- Joshua 22:45, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

AT Sourcebook[edit]

Hey group.. heads up here...

The housing and construction section on the AT Sourcebook page has approximately 80 entries. Our CD only had 47... so we are missing about 30 and don't even have files. Something to talk about tonight at 9:30.
