NIMBUS 2011 is the Annual Technical Festival of NIT Hamirpur, INDIA.
"Alchemy : Resurrecting Detritus"
Transforming Waste into Wealth
Start time: 30 Jan, 2011
End time: 06 Mar, 2011
ALCHEMY is an ancient science which incorporates the conception of transforming the base metals into gold. ALCHEMY personifies 'Renaissance'. These aspects can be co- related to the modern era where one of the major concerns is waste management. To materialize the concept of renaissance on a micro as well as macro scale we've centralized our technical fiesta around it. It is a step ahead in rethinking waste management and institutionalizing the informal sector into the hierarchy of solid waste management. ALCHEMY also endeavours to cover genres of RURAL INDIA and Da Vinci Machines. Rural India focuses on the development of rural India by generating wealth from waste while Da Vinci Machines highlights the concept of perpetual machines as penned down by Da Vinci centuries ago.
This March, let us recycle!
The institution of Nimbus 2011 is multi dimensional in the sense that it diversifies into two sub themes- 'The Da Vinci Machines' and 'Rural Engineering'. The Da Vinci Machines covers the aspect of implementing the prototypes propounded by a great scientific visionary Leonardo Da Vinci. It is an endeavor to innovate, imagine and aspire. This revolves around the central idea- "things of the mind untested by the senses are useless." This year we move ahead to bring back to life the dead wastes.
Rural engineering harps on the ideology of magnifying the range of technology to make it accessible to common man. It endeavors on devising a technical know-how which can be used as a prototype to be implemented on a large scale for the benefit of rural India. It will incorporate events pertaining to technology from the perspective of rural India.
This article summarizes in brief terms about the origin and motives of NIMBUS as a technical festival of one of the premier engineering institutes in India- NIT Hamirpur. Further, it talks about NIMBUS 2011 and how can you be a part of NIMBUS 2011.
Describing local circumstances would made it much easier to participate in Nimbus 2011 waste management innovation. Without any knowledge of the local circumstances, ideas are either crazy or crazy, not usefull innovative crazy.
The implementation of an effective waste management in India depends on basic information and findings which describe and define local challenges and deficits and which are aproppriate to increase general awareness among companies and people towards these problems.
albaerin (1) Earning money through recycling: The “Magic Dustbin” connects environmental and social issues.
As environmental pollution is a severe topic in India, the “Magic Dustbin” looks at the threat from another angle. Building on the give-and-take-basis, the idea puts personal interests in the middle: By recycling correctly, people can earn money and therefore enhance their economic situation.
We at NIMBUS 2011 is eliminating the paper used for registering participants for various campus events and also for registering the outstation students.... This plan can be used in places where people have to fill out forms and other information which, ultimately has to stored as a record in files.
Marjo Ketonen (6) Wastewater, water squeezed out of waste inside refuse dumps will fill your bottles.
Substances inside waste material will become the major raw material. Soon the waste going to landfills will be squeezed totally dry from water and from that water valuable chemicals can be extracted for refinining. The compression for freeing the water can be conducted energy efficiently by using gravity.
