Chandigarh, October 11

The Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), Mohali, has developed the technology for aquaponic cultivation of plants, which is not only environment-friendly but also has high socio-economic benefits for the farming community.

Aquaponics is an emerging technique in which both fish as well as plants complement each other to sustain and grow. The fish waste provides organic food for plants and the plants naturally filter the water which is used to replenish the fish tank. There is no requirement for the use of soil and fertilisers.

“The process is completely organic, increases the productivity of the given land, saves water and also augments the farmers’ income,” Dr PK Khosla, director C-DAC, said, adding: “The technology has been developed and suitable protocols have been evolved for scientists and farmers,” he added.

A pilot project to develop the technology was awarded to C-DAC

Teracube 2e is an eco-friendly phone that’s cheap and built to last

Last year, Teracube released what it called a “sustainable smartphone” meant to combat e-waste with a long warranty and replaceable battery. If you didn’t get that one, you can now get its successor for about a tenth of the price of a new iPhone.

On Tuesday, Teracube announced the follow-up to its environmentally friendly phone that we reviewed earlier this year. It’s called the Teracube 2e and it brings along the promise of a four-year warranty and replaceable battery with slightly less RAM and storage than its predecessor for a noticeably leaner $200 price point. 

And if you pre-order now, Teracube is offering an “early-bird special” price of $99 if you just can’t wait for the 2e.

The Teracube 2e comes with a 6.1-inch display.
