This flowchart represents the process of recycling glass. In the beginning, empty bottles are collected and they are purified on a conveyor belt by workers. Then, they are broken into fine pieces using metallic gears. An optoelectronic system is used to get rid of any impurities such as metals. After purifying, the fine particles are collected in a pot which melts the glass by the process of cullet melting. After that, they are put in the mould to give them a shape of a bottle again. In conclusion, this process stops unnecessary pollution of the environment.

This flow chart represents the biodiesel cycle. In the beginning, the oil crops are harvested that use sunlight for photosynthesis to grow and produce seeds. The seeds are extracted and crude vegetable oil is produced from them. After refining the vegetable oil, alcohol is added to it and the process is called transesterification. The introduction of alcohol produces biodiesel and glycerol. The glycerol is used in the food and cosmetic industry, while biodiesel is used in vehicles. The CO2 released by vehicles is captured by oil crops. In conclusion, this looks very environment friendly process to produce renewable fuel.

The pure water in the tank is used for domestic purposes and the raw water collected at underwater sump is used for plants and trees. In conclusion, this seems a very efficient process to recycle water.
