Elegant Green Energy Solution from a 15 Year-Old

Think back to what you were doing at the age of 15 ………… if you’re anything like us then you were at High School, struggling to grasp basic scientific and mathematical concepts, maybe playing some sports after school and at the weekend………

We’re willing to bet that you probably weren’t inventing in a complete Algae based green energy system.

Well, that’s what young Javier Fernández-Han from Houston, Texas has done. He won the Ashoka ‘Invent Your World Challenge’ with his algae energy system, named VERSATILE. Master Javier’s system incorporates 12 technologies in six subsystems. Each system can treat waste, produce methane and bio-fuel, and is a source of livestock and human food production. It also produces oxygen and sequesters greenhouse gases, and can also be a source of income.

Read the full details of Javiers amazing system over at Cleantechnica.

Here is a slide show featuring Javier and some of the other winners from the Ashoka challenge.

Inspirational stuff, we think you’ll agree…………
