The best practises zone has been opened at the site of the world specialized exhibition Astana EXPO 2017. It presents projects that can change the idea of mankind about the ways of obtaining electricity, "Khabar 24" TV channel reports.
The startups for the best practices zone were selected by a special jury. The list of innovative projects also included the process of producing electricity from plants.
As it turned out, plants can not only decorate the house, but also reduce the fee for utilities. For instance, several ficuses are able to generate as much energy as necessary to light a lamp. But in everyday life, the energy produced by plants is wasted. The method of its obtaining is represented by the Spanish startup Bioo in the best practices zone.
“The pigment chlorophyll, which makes all plants green, absorbs the quanta of light, that is, the particles of light, then the light, until it reaches the roots and becomes an electron. Electrons interact with each other under the influence of light and water, creating electricity. Electricity is the flow of electrons,” said the stand assistant Malika Kashkinbayeva.
The collection of electricity occurs without any harm to the plants. The process itself is environmentally friendly and practically does not require costs.
It should be noted that in the best practices zone also presented a unique technology of heating with ice by the German company Viessmann. Developers tell how the ice crystallization energy can be turned into heating in cold weather.
