10 most successful innovators under the age of 30 years
The rating of the 30 most successful inventors are younger than 30 years, the Forbes compiled by the US, are such different people as a girl who figured out how to get the energy of the soccer ball and the young genius, constructing reactors of nuclear fission. They are united by a common goal - to find the most efficient, reliable and inexpensive ways of conventional processes. They all want to change the world for the better.
The following ten most successful young inventors
Ascension Air Management, founder
She began flying at age 12, once addicted to this case. As a teenager, he sold textbooks on aircraft and equipment, and has performed at an air show. In 2006, a couple with a reputable broker Larkins has created a joint venture for sales of aircraft for general aviation. Annual income Ascension Air is $ 8 million, and the company itself is a leading regional distributor of Cirrus Aircraft, a major producer of aircraft with piston engines.
However, realizing that the greatest demand is for propeller planes for $ 850,000, and most pilots fly 3-5 days per month, Larkins made a revolution in aircraft sales he decided to focus on the sale of fractional ownership, not technology per se. "I want to be as NetJets, but to engage in aircraft with piston engines."
Covaron Advanced Materials, founder
Alessi has invented an analog high-quality ceramics, whose production is much easier and more energy efficient. Instead of the traditional roasting process it "curing" is similar to using two-part epoxy adhesive. "Grown strong", this substance acquires the same properties as the ceramics, while being even stronger. His company Covaron, located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, proudly declares that could replace steel, aluminum and certain types of plastics in various industries.
ReFresh Water, co-founder
Company Eliza Becton ReFresh Water eliminates errors in the system of supply of bottled water. Vending Machines company tucked empty bottles of compressed, which at the time of sale are straightened, so they can be filled with different kinds of soda and flavored drinks. The invention could reduce trading costs through the machines by 20% and carbon dioxide emissions - 80%.
The company's mission Micromidas - recycle garbage in plastic. Bissell invented how to transform various wastes with a high content of cellulose, such as rice hulls, sawdust or paperboard, in paraxylene, which is the base material in the production of polyester and plastic bottles. To date, the company's chemical paraxylene produced from crude oil. Bissell has already received a loan of $ 25 million for the construction of an experimental plant in Sacramento, California.
David Cohen Tanugi
PhD, Department of Materials Science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Cohen Tanugi working on a filter which will reduce the amount of salt in water, and at the same time reduce the power consumption required for desalination. Another goal of his project entitled Wristify - monitoring of air temperature and skin. Using the device to the wrist Wristify sent hot or cold waved pulses to help maintain a comfortable body temperature. It is invented in order to reduce power consumption in buildings by regulating the body temperature, not the buildings themselves.
In the wilderness, where there is no access to electricity, we have to use voracious diesel generators, which in this situation are usually the main source of energy. UPower company intends to put an end to the waste of energy, developing a portable nuclear generator. One such solid-state nuclear generator producing 1, 75 megawatts of power, can theoretically provide the population without recharging energy for 12 years while saving 50% compared with diesel devices.
Replacing inefficient system, ReGreen company has helped more than 3,000 buildings to reduce energy consumption and reduce the cost of water by an average of 60%. Among ReGreen clients includes the company CB Richard Ellis Hotels and Holiday Inn. ReGreen guarantees its customers a full return on their investment within two years, as well as providing innovative financing options. The company was founded in 2008.
Feyershteyn, who speaks four languages, came to Argentina after college to learn Spanish. Together with business partner Nemanja Raaji BucketFeet he created a company that makes shoes made of textile with marvelous drawings of $ 65 per pair. Patterns for shoes he borrowed from street artists around the world. In 2013, the sales revenue amounted to $ 1 million.
LightSail Energy, Founder
Canadian Fong graduated from high school at age 12, 17 have already passed his doctorate at Princeton, where she studied nuclear physics and was the co-founder of a startup LightSail Energy in 20 years in the field of alternative energy. Fong offered a new way of energy accumulation and storage using solar panels and wind turbines. LightSail received more than $ 30 million investment from Bill Gates and Peter Thiel.
Full invention solves two pressing problems of the poor countries. Its low-cost solar panel tracks the sun's movement across the sky with the help of the system with water bottles that are deformed when heated in a predictable manner. Photovoltaic panel rotates the sun without expensive sensors and motors. Parallel filter system purifies water. Prototypes are already being tested in countries such as Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania, helping to obtain as pure water, and energy.
