New power lines might accelerate bustard extinction in Gujarat 8.7.2018 DNA: Money
The thrust towards green energy is having an environmental cost that few had foreseen. The power lines that connect windmills and solar power plants are turning out to be death traps for the critically endangered Great Indian Bustards (GIB) in Gujarat. In the last decade alone, power lines have claimed the lives of about 10-15 GIBs in the GIB-range states of India. If that wasn't enough, the GETCO substation at Bhachunda, where the company plans to put about 15 to 20 power lines, is another potential death trap, claim activists, adding that it is right in the middle of a bustard habitat. Devesh Gadhvi of The Corbett Foundation, an organisation that is working towards GIB conservation, said, "The windmills, by virtue of being green energy, do not require an Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) before being set up, especially outside forest areas. The same happens with the power lines as well.  This means that when such plants are set up in revenue areas, adjacent to the forest areas, which are actually ...

IIT scientists use eggshell membrane to generate electricity: Here's how 27.6.2018 DNA: Popular News
Scientists from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur have used eggshell proteins to develop tiny devices that can harvest electricity from body movements, and could power wearable sensors and devices in future. Proteins found in eggshell membranes have piezoelectric properties, that is, under mechanical stress they produce electricity, researchers said. Bio-inspired piezoelectric materials are considered to be an excellent energy harvesting source, since they are non-toxic and bio-compatible. They also have the ability to generate significant power to the energy deficient world without contributing to environmental pollution. "However, bio-based green energy is still effectively not explored to fulfil the energy demand of contemporary human mankind," Bhanu Bhusan Khatua, a professor at IIT Kharagpur in West Bengal, told PTI over telephone. "Reported bio-piezoelectric have serious drawbacks, such as availability, toxicity, non-biodegradable, non-biocompatibility, industrially unfavorable as well ...
