Explain your idea in details:
The world's population and the number of refugees are increasing for ex. population growth rate in Jordan since 2011 increased by 6.67% with emigration of Syrian refugees and electricity demand increased by 6.4%.The diesel and natural gas are mainly used to generate electricity in Jordan and 44.4% of the production of carbon dioxide from electricity generation.So I started looking for new ways to generate electricity and solve these problems and provide electricity to camp or remote areas.After 6 months of work I invented device to generate electricity from wasted kinetic energy of water flow inside the pipes from 4-up to 79 inch that the water flow depend on gravity in main water pipes network and the water pipes that use "water breaker" to reduce the speed flow and pressure in pipes which diameter from 8-16 inch the device was registered patent request after researching and drafting form Royal Scientific Society that found the device is new and innovative by compared from all patent in this field WO2014012150A1,US9077220B2,US20080217923,US20080219831,US20130049370,US20150001141.Average produces 600 watts-1 Kw/h for 4 inch(by 15% reduce extra pressure added form pressure the tank by water weight for ex. the minimum pressure to flow water to homes 25 bar but the actual 35-40 bar for 4 inch pipes the pressure depends on the volume of water in tank and flow by gravity so,we can reduce 10-15% form the actual pressure*(Water Authority in Jordan)).I have official approval to use the device on water pipes in Jordan/Balqa governorate form Water Authority the device can be used underground because it does not corrode and does not need extra space and easy installation,removal and the maintenance.During my visit to remote areas,refugee camps,cities and villages,I noticed increase in the proportion of plastic waste,so 60% up to 65% of the device will be manufactured from recycled plastic.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
"Necessity is the mother of invention" Providing need for electricity for homes or remote areas or refugee camps is one of most important requirements and reduce the cost of electricity and reduce the production of carbon dioxide production in world is priority in the continued use electricity,this has a wide impact in the world. The direct target (Ministry of Water, water treatment station, large buildings,farmer,houses (After development),responsible companies for infrastructure of refugee camps or remote areas, owners of swimming pools,amusement water parks,large factory(that using cooling system by water) and water transport projects and the indirect targets (Water harvesting channels, water channels, wells, large water tanks, water fountain, water drainage, dams). For our evaluate success for the idea: -The first success was taking official approval from water authority in Jordan/Balqa governorate to use the device on water pipes after discussion with the engineers of water authority and taking official approval from Jordan valley farmers association to use the device on water pipes in farms and water channels after discussion with farm owners. -Reduce the proportion of carbon dioxide production because 44.4% of production of carbon dioxide in Jordan from electricity generation! -Increase the proportion of the electricity generation by green energy and renewable energy that is environmentally friendly energy. -Reduce electricity prices for ex. for Water Authority in Jordan buys the: 1 Kw/h = 0.11 EUR from Electric Power company, 1 MW/h = 110 EUR, 1 MW/Month = 73,920 EUR, but in our contract for 50% offer = 1 Kw/h = 0.055 EUR, 1 MW/h = 55 EUR, 1 MW/Month = 36,960 EUR will be saving! -Help refugee camps and remote areas and take the usefulness of the wasted energy. -Reduce the proportion of plastic waste by recycling to manufacture of 60%-65% of body the device by plastic.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
The customer segments(Ministry of Water,water treatment station,large buildings,farmer,houses(after development),responsible companies for infrastructure of refugee camps or remote areas,owners of swimming pools,amusement water parks,large factory(that using cooling system by water),water transport projects and renewable energy companies)and the customer relationships(Direct communication and inviting companies and interested in renewable energy to a conference or exhibition to talk about renewable energy and the challenges in the field of electricity generation and the presentation of the device during this conference) and the channels(sales representatives,social media,brochures,videos,radio,television, opening an exhibition and conference and sales fairs)and the value propositions(Low cost,can be use from 4-79 inch pipes diameter,produces 600 watts to1 kW/h for 4 inch twice the solar cells output,used underground because it does not corrode,does not need extra space for the space of the pipe,easy installation,removal and the maintenance,efficient in closed areas,does not requiring more tools and equipment,green energy)and the revenue streams(Investors,sponsors,supporting partners,financial grants,financial award from startup competitions and sell the product and service)and the key partners(Ministry of Water,water treatment station,water authority,renewable energy organizations,renewable energy companies,environmental conservation organizations,project support centers and startup)and the cost structures(cost of materials,equipment,tools,manufacturing cost and maintenance,cost of advertising,cost of the conference or exhibition to show and sell the device,cost of marketing expenses and administrative expenses)and the Key resources(cheap location with good access(small factory),contracts with renewable energy companies,Ministry of water,water treatment station and water authority,good employees,patent or Intellectual property,companies and customer data,direct and indirect competitors data)and the key activities generate electricity from wasted kinetic energy of water flow inside the pipes lines from 4-79 inch that the water flow depend on gravity in main water pipes network and the Water pipes that use"water breaker"to reduce the speed flow and pressure in pipes which diameter from 8-16 inch,reach markets,maintain customer relationships,and earn revenues,research and development and finding new ways to generate electricity).
"The solution of a problem with widespread in the world is one of the most important effects and changes required to reduce the suffering of people" I am Shadi Alzu'bi,24 years old.Materials engineer and founding member in Jordan Inventors Association.My passion is innovation and research to solve most important problems and challenges in the world so I invented this idea! I’m winner in 1st place in international competition Falling Walls Lab Jordan competition as the best invention for 2017 and representative Jordan in Germany in the Falling Walls Berlin competition and in the International Conference on Future Breakthroughs in Science and Society on 8 and 9/11/2017 and winner in 2nd place in global competition Hult Prize 2017 in Balqa Applied University as the best invention and qualification to finals in Tunisia and representative Jordan and Balqa Applied University in finalists competition of Hult Prize Tunisian and one of the Top6 in finalists of 2018 and representative Balqa Applied University in the finalists competition of Hult Prize Jordan and one of the Top7 in finalists 2018 and winner in 3rd place in Phi's Applied Research and Innovation 2018 competition in Jordan for 2018 and one of the participants in competition of Intel Science and Technology 2012 in Jordan with invention of(water life)gills of the human being used for breathing without a cylinder oxygen and I registered a patent request for a device to generate electricity from water flow inside the pipes after research and drafting by the Royal Scientific Society in Jordan and I’m a scientific researcher in the field of renewable energy and also in the field of solutions to environmental problems and I worked in a team in the university graduation project for Extraction Microcrystalline Cellulose from Wheat Straw to reduce agricultural waste and the production of natural polymer.
