Green energy from wine production waste

Thursday, 21 March 2019 11:30
The transport sector contributes about 28% to the world’s primary energy consumption, and more than 90% of its consumption comes from petrol. For this reason, different International policies promote the transition of the use of petrol in transport by other sources of energy, such as electricity and biofuels. Although biofuels…
A team of researchers from the chemical company BASF, the ALBA Synchrotron and the “Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya · BarcelonaTech (UPC)” has determined how clays and superplasticizers interact in concrete pastes. These results pave the way to improve the design of new superplasticizers more resistant to the clays that are…

First robot that is oriented without GPS

Its method solidifies the liquid resin using two lights to control where the resin hardens and where it remains fluid, allowing to the equipment to solidify the resin in more sophisticated patterns. It can be made a 3D bas-relief in a single shot instead of a series of 1D lines…
The new method takes into account the variations in sunlight throughout the day and the year, as well as the location of the panel. Researchers of the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) and the Solar Energy Institute of the Polytechnic University of Madrid have used artificial intelligence techniques to…
Experts have been actively researching synthetic auxetic materials for more than 30 years, but so far they have only been to create them by structuring conventional materials using complex engineering processes, including 3D printing. At the University of Leeds, it has been discovered the first synthetic material that becomes thicker,…
