The MatchingPack project, developed by the Packaging Innovation Cluster, seeks to connect the packaging needs of companies with the solutions offered by innovation agents. Different research groups of the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV) work to solve global challenges in the packaging sector. This is an action framed in the…
Prof. Dion Vlachos (left) and Joshua Lansford. (Photo: Jeffrey C. Chase) They call it artificial intelligence, not because the intelligence is somehow bogus. It is real intelligence, but it is still made by humans. That means AI - a powerful tool that can add speed, efficiency, insight and precision to…

It is of the type known as "redox flow battery", with a large capacity that can be used to store energy from wind turbines…
Solar panel “checkerboard” design. (Photo: Dr Davide Zecca) Scientists continue to tirelessly research to increase the performance of solar panels, so that it is more feasible for society to adopt and increase the use of fully renewable energy. According to a new study, a new solar panel design, which uses…
In 2016, a supercomputer beat the world champion at Go, a complicated board game. How? Using reinforcement learning, a type of artificial intelligence in which computers train themselves after being programmed with simple instructions. Computers learn from their mistakes and, step by step, they become very powerful. The main drawback…
Self-guided vehicles -or AGVs, for its acronym in English- have come to revolutionize the industrial sector, which is precisely one of the ones that is being most affected by the health crisis that is hitting the world and by its economic consequences. These are towing vehicles, that is, 'small' robots…

Green technology to turn CO2 into plastic

Monday, 21 September 2020 07:27
This is an important chemical that is used to produce plastics, solvents, cosmetics, and other important products globally. Until now it is obtained from hydrocarbons. Scientists developed nanoscale copper wires with specially shaped surfaces to catalyze a chemical reaction that reduces greenhouse gas emissions while simultaneously generating ethylene, a valuable…
