The Green Living Co-op is based on the barn-raising model, where people volunteer their labor to build sustainable systems and then earn the ability to host a workshop at their own home with a volunteer crew. Workshop hosts can be owners or renters. I got excited about the co-op model when I took a water harvesting training with Watershed Management Group in Tucson in July 2009, and decided I wanted to bring the model to Santa Barbara. I interned in the WMG co-op in Oct and Nov 2010; making a promo video was part of my internship. I am now Program Manager of the Santa Barbara Green Living Co-op and we will start workshops soon. We have formed a steering committee and are planning a water harvesting certification course for this area, in part to train potential co-op workshop instructors.
After his smashing green carpet success at last years Green Shorts Film Festival, Shorty is back and having mastered the art of acting in just a few short films, he's now ready to direct. He welcomes other filmmakers to aspire to his HUGE ego... I mean... vision - and submit a film (or two) to this years Festival.
Efficient Hydrogen Motors is proud to join the 2011 Green Shorts Film Fest Contest “Powered by the People”. Our short film presents EHM solutions for a Green Future.
Severe global consequences are predicted for the continual production of carbon dioxide from industrial and automobile sources.
The basic ideas at Efficient Hydrogen Motors are as follows:
1) Develop an air cooled hydrogen combustion engine that captures CO2 during its operation
2) Have the CO2 capture energy come from normal operation and waste heat
3) Build a prototype engine and
4) License the idea to an OEM to manufacture.
The rationale behind an air cooled engine is to replace the liquid cooling system with a CO2 capture device. Instead of having a radiator where liquid coolant flows, we intend to have a grid open to air and through which hydroxide circulates.
EHM is looking for HELP!
