Environmental preservation is about individual’s culture. It is though a necessity to preserve our globe, but generally people attempt to guise it by using a suitable end of pipe solution. This is easy to implement rather than conceptually attempting to take suitable preventative action bused on cultural change(s).
The journey to environment friendly cultural change passes through 3 ‘R’s; which are namely Reuse, Recycle, Reclaim or Recoup, before suitably Refurbish or Refuse it to enviro-friendly degradation.
What makes much of the energy or materials down the drain is the lack of culture. Because, much of our activities are unproductive and result in wastages and losses, these leave a considerable scope for saving of resources and possibly redeployment of byproducts into profitable or envirofriendly uses.
The present study quantitatively demonstrates the efficiency of a combustion reaction involving carbon (or coal), and its consequent oxidation with various excess air levels. It is demonstrated that deployment of heat is related to the efficiency of combustion. The best routre to environmental preservation is exercising austerity of use. That is, to maintain and sustain environmental preservation, one could collectively deploy various paradigm, duly termed by ‘REALM’ proposed as an acronym duly designed by author.
