[edit] Renewable energy products

  • Apricus solar water heaters use evacuated tube and heat pipe technology to absorb thermal energy from the sun and convert it into usable heat. The heat is normally absorbed by water, or a freeze-resistant water mix, which can then be used to supplement hot water heating, space heating and even space cooling via use of an absorption chiller or dessicant cooler technology.
  • Heatkeeper Radiator PanelsHeatkeeper Radiator insulation panels significantly reduce the heat loss through external walls by directing the heat evenly back into the room by creating a air curtain that rises above the radiator minimising the loss of heat energy produced .
  • Power Predictor Wind and Solar measurement Power Predictor helps people assess the suitability of their site for Small Wind Turbines and Photo Voltaic systems. The Power Predictor consists of a Wind anemometer, a data logger and a subscription to an online analysis tool. The online analysis tool uses the data collected at site to show the costs, payback period and CO2 savings that could be made by many of the Small wind turbines and PVs available in Australia/NZ. The system was developed in UK by Better Generation Limited and the hardware is manufactured by an ethical partner in China.[submitted by Power Predictor Australia]

  • JM Insulation manufactures formaldehyde-free insulation that is made up of more than 50% post-consumer recycled glass. It is better for you and the environment because it reduces toxicity in the home, reduces temperature fluctuations and is made from more recycled glass than any other insulation.

  • Aerobin is a technological breakthrough in home and garden waste management. It uses a patented "lung" or aeration core inside a sealed bin to promote aerobic break down of organic matter, which experts say is the preferable method to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • The Bokashi Bucket is a revolutionary fermentation process that turns your kitchen waste into a rich soil conditioner. This unique composting system uses the revolutionary EM (Effective Micro-Organism) Bokashi to create the ideal conditions for airtight (anaerobic) composting. The odours and unpleasantness associated with putrefaction and decay are eliminated.

[edit] EcoVerta

  • EcoVerta - is an incredibly simple yet amazingly effective water saving solution. In an average home approximately 10% or more of the total water consumed is lost whilst waiting for tapware to run hot.This water can now be saved without ongoing energy costs or associated greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Advanced Eco Technologies - revolutionary new EcoVerta design enables these unique systems to divert water at full mains pressure without the need for any external power. This enables the cold "hot" water, which would normally go down the drain, to be captured and diverted for re-use, into a storage tank or for direct distribution throughout the garden. All models are compatible with mains pressure water heating including solar, heat pump, storage heaters and continuous flow systems. Proudly Australian Made the EcoVerta range carries Watermark approval to AS1357.2, certification by both Good Environmental Choice Australia and the Smart Approved Watermark expert panel.
