Stockholm Train Station Harvests Passengers' Body Heat

Sweden's largest train station, Stockholm's Central Station, has begun harvesting the body heat of the 250,000 passengers who pass through everyday.

The station captures the excess heat from the commuters with heat exhangers in the station's ventilation system that transfer it to generic cialis sale water-filled pipes.  Those pipes send the hot water over to a building across the street, which uses it for heating.  The heat harvesting has slashed electricity bills for the office block by 25 percent.

The real estate company Jernhusen, the owner of Central Station and levitra sale the office block across the road, came up with the idea and created the system for the buildings when it realized that all the activity by hundreds of thousands of generic viagra mexico people was energy being lost through ventilation.  Now, with the success of the system, it's hoping the idea will make its way into other buildings.

I like it when you can make a renewable resource out of something one doesn't even think of as a resource. especially when the "resource" is a waste product already.
Better than harvesting organs.

Wow, what a great idea. Imagine how many heavily places with heavy foot traffic around the world could do this? There's nearly 7 billion people in the world now, estimated to go to 9 billion by 2050. Why not use some of that energy?

That's really neat, I love this idea! What does harvesting this heat do for the microclimate around the building?

I think this is an excellent idea. Making use of the heat we emit that goes to buy viagra us waste is smart. As long as we aren’t building vats to stick people in to power my ipod I am all for it.
Stealing Heat

For those somehow concerned that your body heat is being stolen, please consider this:

While that heat is inside you, warming all your human processes, it's yours. If you have a personal system to capture this perpetually-escaping heat, I'd say it's yours at that point too.
What we are talking about, however, is heat that has escaped your body, and is cash on delivery tramadol overnight being carried away in the swirling air around you. You no longer have any contact with, or use of that heat. If someone else chooses to capture and aggregate that heat, it's clearly theirs to do.
No one is stealing anything from you.
Great Idea
