"Zabaleen" is the Arabic term for those visionary and enterprising people whose culture revolves around recycling. The Zabaleen are experts at "transforming one man's garbage into another man's gold" and aspire toward a net zero-waste economy. Applied and supported this could lead to true energy independence, not only by radically reducing our demand for "raw materials" and hard to extract natural resources but by recycling other less obvious phenomena and materials that are now wasted.

Dometic DRC4000 3 -Way Portable Refrigerator
We should investigate this 3 way portable refrigerator more. At 400 dollars on sale, given that it is an absorption chiller that can be powered by gas, OR AC or DC electricity it seems to hold a lot of promise. We need to see how it adapts to low pressure biogas and how cold it keeps vaccines and medical su...pplies, but it looks ideal for the "Rumble in the Congo". Any idea why these aren't being used there?
