Eco-Tech on the Science Channel
Emily Gertz, 21 Aug 07

Folks in the US with cable tv should check out a great series this week on the Science Channel: Eco-Tech, featuring really detailed yet entertaining profiles people using existing technologies and developing new ones to create the kinds of solutions we love: right now I'm learning about a green chemist using polyphenols, a substance found in tea to replace a toxic chemical used to polish hard drives during computer manufacturing.

I don't know if Science Channel programs make it onto the dial in other countries; it would be great if a DVD or online streams of the show were made available. Tell the Discovery Channel if you agree.

Dear Emily,

Thanks for posting this remarkable series. The shows are a lot of fun and inspiring, showing how giant corporations and small businesses are transforming their markets by rethinking waste and their role in the environment. it's inspiring and a great antidote to the gloom-and-doom that permeates too many in society. Made me want to get up and chaneg the world!

I would very much like to obtain a DVD on each of these Eco Tech segments...any ideas where I might obtain? I would pay someone to record....Help!

I would like to echo previous sentiments, by saying that Echo-Tech is such an excellent series that it deserves to be on DVD, or available online for streaming or download...preferably, all of the aforementioned. I would welcome any information as to when that becomes possible.

Eco Tech series deserves to be on dvd for purchase. An excellant and informative show on the solutions to our global problems of pollution. How encouraging to know that there are people who have important, viable, solutions that can be implemented. So where is the scare?? These guys have answers, especially concerning hydrogen being used for fuel...we need to get the word out!

Help, I've been trying to locate Eco-tech and am not able to locate it on the Science/Discovery website. Does anyone know what day and time the show airs?

Thanks in advance- Michele
