Renewables Save Water

Close to 1.8 billion kilowatt hours of electricity have been generated from renewable sources since June 2009.

According to state-owned Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Organization, aka Satba, this electricity has helped the country save 412 million liters of water in the last nine years, of which 13 million liters were saved between Nov. 22 and Dec. 21, 2017, ILNA reported on Sunday. Thermal plants turn water into steam and spin a steam turbine to produce more than 80% of Iran's installed power capacity of about 77,000 megawatts. The share of renewables stands at a meager 458 MW, yet 597 MW of new renewable power capacity are being developed. Satba noted that between Nov. 22 and Dec. 21, 2017, the country curbed its greenhouse emissions by 41,000 tons. According to the report, the electricity generated since 2009 has helped the country save as much as 531 million cubic meters of fossil fuels, which are the main cause of air pollution.

WORLD’S LARGEST SINGLE-PIECE ROCKET ENGINE 3D PRINTED ON THE SLM®800 SELECTIVE LASER MELTING MACHINE

Orbex has introduced the world’s largest metal rocket engine 3D printed in a single piece on the SLM®800. Founded in 2015, the UK-based spaceflight company develops small satellite launch vehicles and introduced Prime, their revolutionary and environmentally-friendly rocket at the grand opening of their new headquarters in Forres, Scotland. The novel Orbex launcher not only uses 100% renewable fuel to cut carbon emissions by 90% and a novel zero-shock staging and payload separation resulting in zero orbital debris, but was also design-optimized for selective laser melting, helping to create a structure 30% lighter and 20% more efficient than any other launch vehicle in its category.
